Most of you probably weren’t even alive, or you were barely being born when many of the 80s’ prime cartoons were in syndication. A number of these TV shows went on to be remade into movies in recent times: the 2007 flick Alvin and the Chipmunks, 2007’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, 2009’s GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra starring Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Sienna Miller, and the latest Transformers 3 starring Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel and Tyrese. But do you actually remember the original 80s cartoons these movies are based on?
