Cartoons! A significant percentage of late 80s British childhood available for download. Dangermouse! Bananaman! Sharky & George! Don't say I never link you anything good.

Mmmm... Copyright-violation-alicious.

But, where's Kidd Video? Thundarr the Barbarian?

Oh, here they are.

Whoo! Dangermouse! (powerhouse!)

They used to run that on Nickelodeon in the states, right before You Can't Do that on Television. Great link, thanks!

Oh, my God, they have Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors. But not having Jem is truly outrageous.

My personal favorite, Duckula. Cartoons like this that don't take themselves at all seriously must have been a big influence on today's constantly-ironic US offerings.

Where's C.O.P.S.? And damnit, I'm not resting until I find Tranzor-Z episodes!

BartFargo... Thundar is on Boomerang all the time. Of course, not having DirectTV the only time I get to watch it is when I'm flying on jetblue... which gets a bit expensive just to watch a cartoon.

Glad to see Bananaman wasn't just a weird dream.

Danger Mouse.

Greatest. Cartoon. Ever. Made. I was fifteen before I figured out what the hell custard was.

My TiVo records Thundarr every Sunday night (Cartoon Network, I think). Strange how when we were kids we never really picked up on the homo-erotic subtexts.

God, I wish they'd show Danger Mouse on TV again.

Let me just reiterate. This is my childhood, in .avi form.

They're not all British, it's they were just all shown on British television.

Glad you like it guys, and that you are subsequently worshipping me.

wow! It's comforting to know that Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors is on here - no one else I know seems to remember it.

must go searching...great post!

twine42: I've watched most of the cartoons listed on the site, and there's nothing particularly mysterious about any of them. Now trying to figure out SpongeBob Squarepants in Dutch, there's a challenge!

Pretty Generic: between this and that Antichrist post, you're going to have to buy yourself a bigger hat.
