In 1987 I was six years old and I never missed an episode of Might Mouse on Saturdays


You guys made me think of one of the best NES games from my childhood. If you haven't played it yet then you really should. The game is called Uniracers. Fast paced game. Its really fun.

Also, I think you got your sources wrong James. Shapescape was the best game at Game Jam this year. HANDS DOWN!

You guys have made me think about my childhood playing Nintendo for hours with my brother and playing Mario Bros, I also remember staying up with my brother til like 5 or 6 in the morning to watch a single episode of Megaman and right when it came on i fell asleep but it was fun to enjoy spending time with my brother.

I also forgot to bring up the fact that my brother and I would get in trouble because we'd get up too early on Saturdays when we were pretty little.  After being told to go to bed (and missing some shows), we learned that if we'd sneak out of bed and head downstairs, we could get up as early as we wanted.

Cromica, yeah I remember that show and I think I liked it.  Did you know that it was a remake of an old 60s (?) cartoon?

Richie, I remember Uniracers, but wasn't that a SNES game?

Shinra000, If I knew there was a Mega Man cartoon back in the day, my head would have exploded.

Yes I remember watching Wildcats as well. For whatever reason it seemed awesome at the time. Seemed very much like X-men to me. I remember like the big problem from the first season..."three thrice three thrice three", which somehow resulted in a cube...

Pinky and the Brain! One is a genius, the other's insane!

No one watched G.I Joe: Real American Hero ?

I never had FOX growing up so I missed out on X-Men, Spiderman, Etc. It sucks because I am sure I would have loved them back then. Otherwise I remember watching a lot of TMNT. I was also a huge fan of Captain Planet. I was a little sad you guys remembered so little about him. I remember the Cow Boys of Moo Mesa as well. My brother was/is a big western fan and loved it so we had to watch that one every week.

Good show.
