And as challenged, here's Jem. There's not much to comment on this one for me... I didn't watch this show as a kid. And though I was thinking of staging her hologram machine thing in the background, I decided I liked it blank better.
According to Wikipedia it was in syndication in the mid 80's... It certainly seemed familiar when I came across it on Youtube. And the english theme song is A-MAZING. Unfortunately the only DVD of it in the US is some 4 episode disk. I would actually buy it if I could find the whole series.
The thing was mad popular with the kids here in Quebec in the early 80s... and quickly became forgotten for some reason. (probably because of the fact they never aired any reruns, I don't know. It was kinda scary at times)
I don't imagine it pushed a lot of toys either, which is sadly, the main the reason for cartoons. But yes, it IS kind of scary at times, and sad. That's why I like it now... when Nono found a girlfriend robot, and then she sacrifices herself to save them... you can say she was 'just a robot', but it was still pretty deep for an 80's cartoon.
Quite true! Season two starts this weekend, I believe... finally the stuff I've been working on is airing. Most of my work is revision, but episode three of season two I got to do some actual boarding on. (I actually boarded a few scenes that got cut for time T_T )
