I canít believe Inspector Gadget (the old school animated series) is on DVD now. I used to be glued to the TV when I was a kid just to see if Penny and Brain would capture Claw (since Inspector Gadget never did anything useful)

While I can't help but take note of this as the first and/or only post by you... I am nonetheless interested. However, I am a very happy Netflix subscribers, so I might just run that through my queue at some point. If someone ever decided to be fickle and get it for me, I wouldn't complain. [Razz]

(Though I'd much sooner take Lain than Insp. Ggdt. [Wink] )

Who knows...I might still have some of it on VHS recorded off TV.... somewhere. That was definitely something this techinically inclined dragon enjoyed ages ago. [Smile]

I am impressed and a bit frightened that my generation is now the one being hit with the nostalgia DVDs. Although I would love to get Duck Tales or Animaniacs. [Big Grin]

Histeria? Yes, I loved it.

I'm happy to see that they finally will be releasing Animaniacs on DVD. That's definitely going on my wishlist.

I have to say that I'm with Astronomer Jedi on this one.... as a kid, it was Transformers that had me glued to the TV.

If only I came from Cybertron, and could become my own car.... now that would be convenient.

While Animaniacs isn't truly of my generation (I was in college, so I don't think that counts as the intended audience...maybe I'm wrong), I used to LOVE that show. My girlfriend (at the time) and I used to have most of the songs memorized and have singalongs....

Okay. I feel 75 years old now. Back to my rocker....

My son and I watched it once--he seemed to like it and the humor/animation was still pretty accessible for an adult (that would be me.)

I'm not much for traditional, as they put it, "sunday morning values" but it was quite palatable for the genre.

My son seems to prefer DragonTales and My Neighbor Totoro. =) DragonTales is a bit insipid but Totoro rocks the house.

Oh, I forgot about DragonTales. [Eek!] I like DragonTales, too. Wishbone and Arthur are fun to watch as well, but I haven't seen Wishbone on PBS for a while. Does it still exist or has it been cancelled?

I used to watch Inspector Gadget, but what I'd really pay good money for is either Count Duckula or Danger Mouse.

Those were some darn good toons.

I'm amused that people think Inspector Gadget is old. When I was I kid we watched Don Adams actually act (if you can call it that) in Get Smart (rather than just do the voice).

Yeah, I just don't consider 1983 "old school" [Roll Eyes] Astro Boy, Felix the Cat, Yogi Bear, Superman, Flintstones, etc.. I'd consider "old school"

To further refine my point - "Old-School" animation would be Loony Toons and the other great Warner Bros. stuff from the 20's to 50's. The Hanna-Barbara cheap stuff from the 60's was the beginning of the downfall. Inspector gadget was the same class as kid's cartoons today, except less nilhistic than most.

But they provide such great fodder for ironic, snarky, and surreal Adult Swim cartoons-- Space Ghost Coast to Coast, SeaLab 2021, Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law, the Herculoids shorts... [thumbsup]

I'd like to see Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors out. Actually, I'd like to see that series END.

The best American cartoons for me came out in the 80's period. Jayce being one of them, also liked Mighty Orbots, Visionaries, Galaxy Rangers, and some other stuff, even Inhumanoids and of course Inspector Gadget (one of my favorites).

Of course nothing beats Anime already out on DVD. Transformers? Pfft! Let's get back to the King of Braves! GA GA GA GA GA GA GA GAO GAI GAR!!!
