The 42cast Episode 73: Cartoons of the 80’s

Eighties_Cartoons

The 80’s were a time cartoons were becoming more and more popular. Greater channels and the rise of syndication meant that there was a lot of content out there. When you combine that with the rise of licensing and cartoons being created by toy companies, and you had a recipe sure to win over any child’s heart. In this episode we discuss our favorite cartoons of the 80’s and why we feel that they were special. We also discuss the attitude that cartoons stopped being good in the 80’s because the toylines became involved and share our opinions on that topic.

The six-minute controversy this week asks if the casting of Kristen Wiig is a good choice for Wonder Woman 1984.

This week The Phantom Troublemaker and Lucas join the cast.
