    Now don't tell me its Transformers, G.I. Joe, or Smurfs, because we KNOW those had insane popularity. What would you consider the most underrated animated series of the 1980s?

    Silverhawks and BraveStarr. I think we all learned from those shows--learned to love.

    For some strange reason, although my memories of watching the show are vague, I'd have to say the Visionaries.

    I think it was either Strawberry Shortcake, Moondreamers, or that cartoon that had glowworms in it.

    I think "Galaxy High" is too often overlooked. But then, it did last only one season.

    I'd go with Dragon's Lair/Space Ace cartoon. It had humor and very good network animation. Then again,considering that Don Bluth created them, I'd expect no less.

    I'd have to say disney's Gummi bears, if for no other reason than it was their first attempt at TV animation and it launched the career of an energetic young screenwriter named Greg Weisman (who went on to create...if I need to tell you what show he created I will hurt you)

    The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers I've always been partially to space westerns. But it had good storylines and was well written. Suffered from bad syndication deals though. And in New Orleans were I was living at the time the station frequently reran some episodes. Didn't run others in sequence and generally screwed it up.

    Silverhawks. A bit silly at times but what Rankin Bass show didn't have it's odd moments. Even ThunderCats had so odd attempts at humor.

    Bionic Six.

    Wow, I bought a Rude Dawg tape on clearence. What a flashback! I agree with you. Way ahead of its time. Great character design too.

    You've got good taste. I thought I was the only one who remembered Spiral Zone. Cool show.

    But the show that most deserved to be a megahit was Galaxy Rangers. Great characters, great writing, great animation, great music. I can't wait to pick up the DVDs in October.

    Snorks.

    I'm serious, once you get past the 'cutsey' and Smurf-esque premise, it's actually a very clever and enjoyable show.
