Growing up in the ’80s, I can remember coming home from school or watching on a Saturday morning my favorite television cartoons. As a young girl, I loved to watch She-Ra, Jem, Rainbow Brite and I equally enjoyed watching Heathcliff, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego, G.I. Joe, He-Man, Batman, and others. Now being the mother of a teen son and toddler twin boys, I am once again watching cartoons and television shows and this time around its with my own children. Many of today’s animated features often discuss topics that are not suited for a young audience and are not really totally family-friendly. With the difficult economic situation, parents still need to provide entertainment for their children but can not afford to spend a lot. Mill Creek Entertainment has teamed with TVFlashbacks.com to provide a retro-resurgence of nostalgia and discovery with DVDs of hit shows from the ’80s and ’90s at affordable prices.
From Archie’s Weird Mysteries and Heathcliff to Carmen Sandiego and Sherlock Holmes to Gadget Boy, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors and more, each of these DVDs is jam-packed with multiple entertaining episodes (plus bonus episodes) are starting at just $7.99.
Some of the quality family entertainment from the ’80s and ’90s now available on DVD are the following:
