These are games based on TV shows that I watched when I was a kid. I've never played any of these games (thank god, most of them look terrible) so this list is more of an excuse to talk about shows that I liked a lot way back when. Feel free to add to the list; we'll get a crazy patchwork of different shows.

I just now finished the list, and damn did I watch a lot of TV when I was a kid. That was time I could have spent outside, or playing a boardgame.

As I am a member of Generation T (t for turtles) this was of course the inspiration for the list. Back in the day, Ninja Turtles was where it was at. The image you see to the left is from the new Ninja Turtles series that is on today. As a turtle connoisseur from the olden days, I can tell you that the original series from back in the '80's was a millions times better than the new one.
Michaelangelo should not have an MP3 player or a DVD collection. He should have a ghetto blaster and say things like "Tubuloso!" Also, I don't care what anyone says, April O'neil is a reporter and wears a yellow jumpsuit; that they changed this in the new series is blasphemous.

This show was awesome. I always enjoyed Brain's antics and felt sorry that he had to get beat up just to save the bumbling Inspector Gadget. Unfortunately, this show was eventually replaced by a crappy one called "Danger Mouse." Totally unforgiveable.

"Game descending!" This show was one of the early pioneers of 3-D computer animation. The plot was something of a ripoff of Tron (bunch of dudes and dudettes living in a computer fighting and occasionally forced to play a computer game when it struck the user's fancy). Anyways, I'm keeping my eyes open for this one on DVD.

Batman the Animated Series was on right after the Animaniacs (which doesn't have a game, unfortunately) and had some pretty amazing animation. It was very cool because of the dark setting, both literally a dark mood and low lighting. The Riddler and the Scarecrow were always my favorite villains (Clayface was cool, too). Thinking back on this series, I have to laugh at some of the villains' backstories. Clayface was a model who, like, OD'd on some kind of vanishing cream that turned him into a giant blob that could take any form. Yeah...

The Smurfs was one crazy show. There were several smurfs that you saw over and over again that had actual personalities, and then the rest of the smurf village was composed entirely of generic smurfs that existed for the sole purpose of gathering around and filling in background during town meetings. I think the villains name was Gargamel, or something like that, and he had an evil cat. It's been way too long since I've seen this one.

Okay, since this game is from 1973, and considering the overall popularity of the show, there has to be someone out there besides me who's seen this one. There were actually two versions of this show, the one with all five characters (Scooby, Shaggy, Daphne, Velma, and Freddy) where the monster always turns out to be some hillbilly local who damns the "meddling kids" for ruining his poorly thought out scheme, and then there's the stupid crappy version with only Scooby, Shaggy, and Scrappy Doo where the ghosts always turn out to be actual ghosts. The show with Scrappy was terrible beyond belief. I even hated it when I was a kid, and I used to watch the Rugrats (no comment, and no geeklist entry, either, since it's too embarassing).

Doug was the best of the Nicktoons. Some might argue that Ren and Stimpy was better, but personally, I found that show kinda gross, plus, there were only about three episodes. Also, Doug had this cool little ditty that played in the background during scene changes; it went, Chikka-bah chikka-bah chikka-bah-bah, chikka-bah chikka-bah chikka-BAH. Doug was from a time when Nicktoons hadn't yet been tainted by that demon from the bowels of El Diablo, SpongeBob.

I used to watch the Super Mario Bros. cartoon. It was freakin' awesome, but every now and then they'd play some crappy Legend of Zelda episode which was absolutely unbearable. What's really amazing is that they made the Nintendo Game into a boardgame.

Garfield and Friends was another show I watched when I was a lad. Garfield's adventures were actually pretty funny, though I always found actually hearing his voice kinda weird. Unfortunately, a portion of this show was given over to these stupid barnyard animals who were not funny at all, like this duck who wore a floatation device and an egg with legs. Lamers!

Okay, obviously I'm getting a little lax here, and I forgot X-men. This show pwned all over the place. It has what the movies still do not. That's right, you guessed it, Gambit. That guy was awesome. How can they not have added the guy who throws cards that explode? Inconceivable! There were some other characters who were okay, but Gambit? He was a megacaptain!

Forgot this one as well. Man did I watch a lot of TV! Anyways, this was the one where the family drives their station wagon into a time warp and end up in prehistoric times where they hang out with a cave woman and fight evil dinosaur people. Were they called the Morlocks? Wait, that was Time Machine. Anyhoo... this show was cool and I learned just about all of my wilderness survival skills from watching Chakka, that little monkey dude that they hung out with.

Friday nights the family would gather to watch such classics as this. This was not the animated show mind you but the one starring the late Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno.
