Coming Soon - Saturday Morning Cartoons 1980s DVD

Warner Home Video has slowly been releasing DVD collections with a diverse sampling of episodes from different cartoon series from each decade. Now they have finally made it to the 80's and have a fun looking DVD planned. I don't think I watched even one of these shows as a kid, but it should be fun to see.

Here's the info...
The decade that brought us mullets, new-wave music and Pac-Man also gave birth to some of the most unforgettable cartoons on TV. Warner Home Video (WHV) pays tribute to the 80s by releasing some of the most entertaining and colorful animation from that time with Saturday Morning Cartoons 1980s, the latest installment from the Saturday Morning Cartoons library, which will be available in stores May 4, 2010. This new collection features an eclectic mix of rare and popular cartoons the whole family can enjoy. The compilation features 11 shows on two discs for over four hours of delightful animation! Saturday Morning Cartoons 1980s will retail for $26.99 SRP.

Saturday Morning Cartoons 1980s features a diverse collection of 11 different shows. Disc one, showcases such favorites as Goldie Gold & Action Jack, Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos, The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley, The Flintstone Kids, and Mister T.
