Teletoon in Canada are showing the fantastic (as has readily admits) Rocket Robin Hood. It's one of the worst, yet at the same time one of the best things I've ever seen. It's strange, it's one of the most difficult half hours to sit through because it's so bad but I have to sit through it because it is so bad. It's from the late 60's

Most half-hour shows have 22-24 minutes of programing when you take out the commercial. Rocket Robin Hood for whatever reason takes up about 12-minutes of that time for self-promotion. They'd have a theme song going to commercial about the show and coming back they'd have the same promo every single episode that says how great Rocket Robin Hood or is one of his Merry men are... My favorite has to be Friar Tuck, his only attack is using his fat stomach & his promo had the worst offense of gluttony I've ever seen as he has a table full of food and would take a bite of one thing and throw it away. He'd take a bite of an apple & toss away, bite a drumstick, toss it, same with the grapes. And he's a babyface! It's a sight to see.

The cartoon is not that bad, if you can get past the countless intro theme's, self-promotion, and claiming to be in the "astounding" year 3000 yet everyone is still wearing medival times tights, somewhat blatant homosexual characteristics, plus horrible drawings even for 60's TV... I also heard the animators were totally tripping when drawing this. Which would explain the Marlin the Magician episode, which had to be the most bizarre episode of a cartoon I've seen as none of it made sense

I just want to see the 60's episodes of The Mighty Hercules again and I think I'd be set. The strength of ten ordinary men(why not just get 11 guys to beat him up) and softness in his eyes, iron in his thighs (huh right). Who just happens to look exactly like Superman, as hangs around and is friends with a little goat guy who would say everything twice in a high voice "Don't touch me there Herc, don't touch me there Herc"... But I must say the heel in the show actually looked pretty heelish.

edit: for horrible written post. Yikes!

I have such fantastic, joyous memories of watching Battle of the Planets (the Americanized Gatchaman). The costumes, the vehicles, the bad guys, the monsters, the Whirlwind Pyramid, all the trappings of the show. Even liked the narrator 7-Zark-7 and his chats with Susan from Pluto.

But the show seen by my adult eyes is a mess. The script is horrible, the 7-Zark-7 bits are cringe-inducing and just how many times can we see the kids eat, play ping-pong or jam in their romper room? I can still see what I enjoyed as a kid, but I laugh my way through the show now. Not in appreciation of the imagination, but in shock at its awkward pacing and repetition.

Oh man, I remember that old Hercules show! What was that half-horse guy's name, Pip? A film prof of mine did this great lecture one day about homoeroticism in the media and showed all of these 'innocent' examples from old films and TV that are hilarious to watch today. Hercules played a major role.

When I saw the title of the thread I immediately thought "Rocket Robin Hood." My favourite guy was always Will, with the red hair, 'cause he seemed cool.

I can still sing the song. "Band of brothers, marching together..."

What about that episode when they went to the planet of the mushrooms which shot out the mist which put you to sleep FROM WHICH YOU WILL NEVER AWAKE. They told crazy drug-induced stories to keep them from falling asleep.

I saw the title of this thread and thought: "hey, betcha someone saw Hercules!". Be on the lookout, though.. the Hercules cartoons have been re-mastered and are currenly airing on some cable systems! The re-mastered versions have a new theme song, however. There was another guy with goatlegs, presumably named Pan. And speaking of homoerotic cartoons (and who doesn't talk about THAT), Tranzor Z takes the cake on that subject. Female robot that shot missiles out of its breasts, and the half-man/half-woman character.

Only time I ever saw "Rocket Robin Hood" was in one of those center-page spreads in an old comic book. You know the type... a two-page spread from CBS, NBC or ABC, promoting their new Saturday morning cartoons. Included a line or two about each show, along with a picture. For another tangent, NBC's fall promo, circa 1984, was the greatest. A two-pager with dialogue between Mr T, Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, Smurfette and the Snorks.

I remember watching Wee Willie Webber's Colorful Cartoon Club on Channel 17 out of Philly as a kid and hoping everyday that Rocket Robin Hood would be one of the cartoons that he would show. Combine that with an episode of Ultra-Man and I was one happy little camper.

For your Hercules geeks, I grew up watching this show. The centaur was named Newton, and the goat/pan-guy with the flute was named Toot.

I also love Rocket Robin Hood. Try watching it back to back with the 60s Spiderman. They often re-used backgrounds and, occassionally, actual animations.

Are you ready for Mahkan-mania to run wild all over you?

X-E's co-Worst Poster of all time! says:

You just gave me a hankerin for The Gary Coleman Show and The Super Globetrotters.

Robots? Giant insects? Everyone Hugh Jackman`s Van Helsing killed? They ALL want to play basketball. And they will severely beat you in the first half. But it`s not a problem when you can jump into a locker and make a comeback EVERY episode.

Thank you, NetHack. I immediately scanned the 'toon to find Rocket Robin and I was successful! The first show I watched featured Rocket's merry men pulling a prank by convincing the weak midget cook that he was powerful, which in turn led to him taking on the bad guys all by himself and being captured. During one of the commercials the narrator asks if this prank will led to the cook's DEATH.

Now this is what is missing from today's cartoons. If you had that premise in a cartoon today an army of obese soccer moms would picket you into unemployment. I miss the old time cartoons where Daffy Duck fires a rifle at the things that annoy him and where failure leads to certain death. All this sanitization of children's entertainment hasn't made those children any less annoying, greedy, fat, or easily defeated.

Not to be confused with his evil brother Notwen.

NHS: If those Hercules episodes do start running, PLEASE update!

I never thought I'd find a group of people worse than Leafs fans, yet there they are: the Calgary Flames bandwagon. It's just an offside...stop cheering you imbeciles!
