My favorite childhood cartoons - Back to the past

Sort by: Showing 20 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 315 Average listal rating (225 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 8.5
Saint Seiya (1986)
French title: Les Chevaliers du Zodiaque

Notes: This was just totally awesome! The story was really epic and fascinating with some cool fights. I never followed the whole plot and kept missing some episodes but when I was a kid, it was the ultimate cartoon!

Dragon Ball (1986)
French title: Dragon Ball

Notes: I still remember it today, I saw the very first episode aired in France. I loved it right away. The adventure was captivating, there were some cool fights and the whole thing was just hilarious. Later on, it became even more famous when it became 'Dragon Ball Z' but I never loved this version. The jokes were gone and the whole thing was about some guys firing huge fire balls at each other the whole duration of the episode, so boring... But the original 'Dragon Ball' was just awesome.

People who added this item 110 Average listal rating (84 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 8
French title: Olive et Tom

Notes: When I was a kid, all the boys were watching this. The football sequences didn't make any sense but we couldn't care less. We completely related to the characters and the whole thing was just captivating.

johanlefourbe's rating:
French title: Ulysse 31

Notes: This is a French-Japanese production so, I'm not sure if anyone knows about it on Listal. Anyway, it was a fascinating and mature story. The animation was gorgeous and in France, it is still a huge classic.





johanlefourbe's rating:
French title: Albator

Notes: This is one was very dark and gloomy but it is probably why it was so fascinating to watch. Again, a fascinating tale with some awesome characters.

johanlefourbe's rating:
People who added this item 20 Average listal rating (12 ratings) 8.6 IMDB Rating 8.5
French title: Cobra

Notes: Another Science-Fiction flick... This is again a huge classic and I'm quite surprised that again, so few listal users know about it. Anyway, the main character was an anti-hero and thus very charismatic. Some pretty dark stuff but completely awesome.

johanlefourbe's rating:
People who added this item 76 Average listal rating (51 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8.7
French title: Les Mystérieuses Cités d'or

Notes: This is another French-Japanese production. This time, it took place in south america in the Aztec world. A different type of story but still very fascinating and it also a very well made cartoon.

People who added this item 199 Average listal rating (133 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8.3
French title: Ken le survivant

Notes: You will never, ever see such a cartoon in a kid show or channel. But we did....Back, then, the concerned French channel was buying a huge amount of Japanese cartoons without checking the content whatsoever. And we ended up watching this... It is one of the most violent cartoon ever made and it was made for at least 16 years old kids... Anyway, I remember watching this with my dad (I was maybe 8-9 years old) and we had a blast. It was indeed very violent, bleak, gloomy with liters of blood but I thought it was awesome. After a year and some huge protest, they pulled it off... Damned!

Transformers (1984)
French title: Transformers

Notes: This is probably the most famous cartoon on this list and of course I saw it. It was not one of my favorite but it was still pretty cool and I watched it a lot.

johanlefourbe's rating:
People who added this item 119 Average listal rating (85 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 7.4
Astro boy (1963)
French title: Astro, le petit robot

Notes: It seems to be a rather innocent flick but it was actually quite dark, if I remember correctly. Anyway, it was a pretty cool cartoon.

johanlefourbe's rating:
People who added this item 82 Average listal rating (62 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 7.2
MASK (1985)
French title: MASK

Notes: It looks a little bit like a rip-off of Transformers with those transforming vehicules but it was pretty cool though.



johanlefourbe's rating:
People who added this item 205 Average listal rating (152 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.7
French title: G.I. Joe

Notes: This show was actually a big commercial for all those toys (which I really had to buy). In spite of that, it was still pretty cool and I watched it a lot.

johanlefourbe's rating:
People who added this item 21 Average listal rating (17 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 8.4
French title: Goldorak

Notes: In France, it is a huge classic. I wasn't a huge fan probably because it was very old and rather repetitive but still it had a huge impact on all the cartoons that came afterwards.

johanlefourbe's rating:
People who added this item 773 Average listal rating (571 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.9
ThunderCats (1985)
French title: Cosmocats

Notes: I thought it was very well done and they always had some captivating adventures. A very cool show.

johanlefourbe's rating:
French title: C.O.P.S.

Notes: Again, basically, this show was actually created to sell toys but I couldn't care less. I thought it was not bad at all.

johanlefourbe's rating:
People who added this item 1186 Average listal rating (865 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 7.2
Smurfs (1981)
French title: Les Schtroumpfs

Notes: This is also very famous and actually very French (actually, it is Belgian, whatever...). Maybe a little too nice and soft for me but still it was rather entertaining, especially when I was very young.



johanlefourbe's rating:
French title: Les Maîtres de l'univers

Notes: I thought this one was allright but it was not among my favorite. Maybe I thought it was a little bit lame because you definitely could see that He-man and Prince Adam was the same guy but nobody in the show could see it.



johanlefourbe's rating:
People who added this item 1025 Average listal rating (747 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.5
French title: Les Tiny Toons

Notes: I saw this one when I got older (maybe 12 years old) and I was probably getting interested in other stuff than cartoons but still it was rather entertaining.



johanlefourbe's rating:
People who added this item 998 Average listal rating (725 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.9
French title: Les Tortues ninja

Notes: Honestly, I never got into the Ninja Turtles too much. My small brother was a huge fan though. Anyway, a very famous and still pretty cool show.

johanlefourbe's rating:
People who added this item 1381 Average listal rating (1020 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 8.1
DuckTales (1987)
French title: La Bande à Picsou

Notes: I used to watch this quite often. It was not my favorite but it was ok and entertaining.



johanlefourbe's rating:

Before I started to ONLY watch movies, I used to do other stuff...

When I was a kid, I would spend hours watching cartoons... I guess most of them look now pretty lame and corny but back then, I really loved those.

If you're curious about my other interests beside movies, please check this list : Before I ONLY watched movies...
