Lovin' the 80s

Click on the link above to find a great site for searching all of your favorite cartoons from the 80s. They've even got some really obscure ones.

I scoured the Web and found the SHEET MUSIC to the Chapi Chapo theme song!!! Does anyone else remember this cute little short that was part of Nickelodeon's show "Pinwheel"? Because of the pronunciation, I thought the last two lines were "Bashoo, bashoo, biddy-boo; bashah, bashah, biddy-bah; biddy, biddy, baddy, baddy-ah." I used to crack Ashpenaz up doing that little ditty with my cute little girl Elena voice.

Ash's schtick used to be "Couldja, wouldja, pweese?!" with the bottom lip stuck out as the final flourish. This was when she was young...like...preteen!

So what are some of your favorite cartoons? Past or present...whatever...it's fine. Just post in the comments. (Sorry that I don't have Haloscan.)

Elena,
What a fabulous link! I fear you've opened a can of worms because I'm sadly addicted to my childhood and the cartoons of the 80's. I've made a CD of all the theme songs to the shows I used to watch. Some of my favorites include:
* Care Bears
* Jem (Horrors! They've released a new Jem DVD and it's bad!)
* Rainbow Brite
* My Little Pony
* Thundercats (I used to wish I could run as fast as Chetara)
* Transformers
* Babar
* Heathclif
And so many others. I still have a few original care bears and a sprite from Rainbow Brite. So with that, I leave you with the theme song of Care Bears:

"I wanna be a care bear
Oh it'll be so great to be a care bear
And do the things that care bears do
Oh I want to be a care bear like you!
You do?

I'll be like funshine and make the sunshine
I'll have a heart like love-a-lot
I'll be like wishbear and always be there
I'll be the luckiest bear in Care-a-lot!"

I don't remember the rest : )
