Enough With The Cartoon Nostalgia!

By now, I've realized that my entire youth was spent watching cartoons. That might explain some things. Or not. *shrug* Anyway, don't worry, this will be the last Cartoon Nostalgia post for a while (in other words, until some night I can't think of anything else to blog about).

The Centurions
. It had a space station that would beam down these cybersuit things to three guys. Each guy was a specialist in one kind of terrain: water, air, or terrestrial. They would then use said cybersuits to fight evil and injustice and supervillainry.

Exosquad. It was about a future in which humanity genetically engineers Neo-Humans to settle Mars and be like slaves or something, but, of course, they rise up against their human creators. Even worse, they're led by a Hitler-like charismatic leader dedicated to basically wiping out the plain old humans. A small force of intrepid humans, and one good Neo-Human, use "exoskeletons" to combat the Neos and free humanity. A very sophisticated and dark cartoon, that is, apparently, now a cult classic. Frustratingly, it ended on a huge cliffhanger that will never be resolved. *grrr*

Batman: The Animated Series
. The Batman/Bruce Wayne in this was hot! Way hotter than any of the guys who've played the character in live-action, IMHO. This was also a really dark, gritty cartoon animated in a dark, gritty style with dark, gritty storylines. Frankly, it's darker and grittier (and better) than any of the big-screen versions ever were.

Well, that's it for Cartoon Nostalgia for now. Or is it.........? *MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA*
