Before there was anime…

Posted in: Random Fun

Chances are before any of you started watching anime, you were or used to be entertained by “regular” cartoon shows, such as those from Disney and Warner Bros. I used to love shows such as Duck Tales (which still ROCKS btw), Ghost Busters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and much, much more.

If you’re like me, you’ll probably find some this to be a trip down memory lane, and even realize that you’ve watched something which you didn’t even knew you watched. Heck I didn’t know I watched Legend of Zelda and Dungeons & Dragons until after watching this YouTube video showcasing cartoon openings from the 80’s

While I can’t name every series shown in the video above, I can more or less recall and name all of the openings from this 90’s cartoon openings except a couple.

You can really see that Disney classics are truly timeless and are still good to watch even now… Most of them, anyway. No wonder Osamu Tezuka took his inspirations from Disney.
