Now, when i was growing up as a little kid there were some things that were just part of the day, like Play school followed by seseme street when i was real small and the Goodies and Dr Who as i got bigger. We all know those classic tv shows that influenced the way we grew up and im sure most of us here would name the same ones, like Monkey Magic, Dr Who, The Goodies, Werzel Gummage for those who only got the ABC like we did, what else? cartoons like G-Force (i always wanted to be Jason), Astro boy, the Transformers, He-Man MOTUniverse and all those other great shows. Get Smart was another one (RIP Max).
Now there was one show that untill tonight i had forgotten all about, one show that influenced me and my brother just about more than any other, we had the show bag toys, the cars and my brother and i used to fight over who was gonna be Beau or Luke, thats right, the Dukes of Hazzard.
The joys of watching that show and those naughty Duke boys fang the big Chrysler V8 around had slipped my mind until tonight when i saw the new Dukes movie.
If, like me your around 30 and used to love yr daily dose of YEEE HAAAAA then go see this movie, for those who think it is crap, you never knew what Beau and Luke Duke meant to us fledgling petrol heads when we were growing up.
Great movie and faithfull to the original series. Those crazy deep south characters, Beau, luke and Daisy, Enis and Boss Hogg. The commenting over the top and the good ol General Lee, my first introduction to american civil war history...."Dad, who was General Lee??"
Damn i loved that show.
Thanks to the Dukes of Hazzard movie for bringing it all flooding back.
WHat other show did you guys use to love??
Check it out.

aah, the early to mid 80's 1 hour long action show. Such timeless classics as A-team, manimal, dukes, blue thunder, airwolf, knight rider. The a bit later on we had quantum leap, macgyver etc etc.

Knight rider was ruined for me at expo 88. KITT (knight industries two-thousand) was there, but the guy in the little booth doing the voice was way too close to the car, and got grumpy when we started talking to him, instead of the car.

I gots to say, the movie kicks ass!!! I don't know how you can't like it Ninja, it's just a great movie to go watch to get away from reality.

I must say though, the last 20 mins or so drags on a bit but besides that, it's great. Awesome driving, hot chicks, fights.. bring it on!

I'm just amazed at all the shows everyone has posted that I used to love and watch in the 80's that I'd forgotten about. I reckon I remember watching every single one posted so far to one degree or another. Here's another one,
Auotman, computer generated guy,blue neon outlined body that was created out of some guys computer, a cursor would draw his body and his car and he had some cheesy kmart catalogue male model actors head on his computer drawn body
God bless the 80's :D

If you watch this and dont feel like you 6 years old again then you wernt there. This gave me goosebumps.
I actually forgot that it was called Battle of the planets for a tic.
"G force" was the best cartoon ever. If you watched them you'd agree.
After BOTP it was Transformers all the way but BOTP was by far a better cartoon.
