PAC-MAN: as a cartoon









I wanted to put up a second season episode for comparisons, but there wasn't too many complete episodes in the sea of YouTube incompetence, but you get the idea!

Oh man. I actually remember that Saturday Morning Preview special. My brain hurts just thinking about it. I wish they still did the fall preview specials. I always loved those.

Also, Lavern & Shirley in the army? WHUT? That's like putting Olive Oyl in the army! What were they thinking?

I miss those things too. Someone out there put up the 1983 ABC Fall Preview Special at FuzzyMemories.tv, might as well check it out!

"Also, Lavern & Shirley in the army? WHUT? That's like putting Olive Oyl in the army! What were they thinking?"

And this all happened during my impressionable years. Now you can understand how screwed up I feel.

This was also the year that spawned that Fonz cartoon (or was he now with Laverne & Shirley in the army), an animated Morky & Mindy, and even The Little Rascals (first time animated). Perhaps that's why I hardly watched ABC that year.

And God help us, another Scooby/Scrappy Doo season to boot!

Because, you know, kids just love military humor.

And that Little Rascals cartoon? Don't get me started!

Lord knows I thought we'd all be drafted sooner or later (glad I'm not in my dad's generation)

I won't.
