Thursday Cartoon Intro - SKELETON WARRIORS (UPDATED)

With the recent release of Skeleton Warriors on DVD, I was finally able to rip a better looking copy of the cartoon's intro. Regardless of how shitty some of the designs are and how cheesy the theme song is, this show still stands out as a gem from the 90s. They just don't make shows like this any more. Unfortunately, Skeleton Warriors only lasted 13 episodes. For those intesrested, the recent DVD release contains the entire series as well as an amazing "behind-the-scenes" documentary. Highly recommended for people looking for a cartoon with... skeletons.

Thursday Cartoon Intro - CAPTAIN POWER

I was hesitant to include Captain Power with the rest of the Thursday Cartoon Intros and not classify it as a "non-cartoon intro," however, due to the large sum of CG animation, I thought it should qualify. Captain Power is one of my favourite shows from the 80s. Created by Gary Goddard, the director of Master of the Universe - The Movie, Captain Power was released in 1987 and ran for 22 episodes. In addition to these episodes, three of the episodes were cut together to create a feature length movie. What made Captain Power so special to kids in the 80s was that it was interactive with the Mattel toys and was one of the first (if not, THE first) show to feature CG animation mixed with live-action. The DVD was recently released and has a plethora of bonus features that go into the details of the making of the series. I highly recommend this DVD for anyone who has seen the show and anyone that may be new to it. Also, I couldn't feature an intro like this one and not mention how cool the opening is. The voice-over may be over the top, but it still gives me chills.
