Walk down the toy aisle of your favorite nearby toy store and you’ll probably spot Lion-O action figures and stuffed Smurfette dolls lining the shelves. If we didn’t know any better, we’d think we’d somehow gone back in time to the 1980′s. But alas, the year is still 2011 (and sigh that flux capacitor we’ve been eyeballing is still out of stock on the Think Geek website.)
Our favorite ’80s cartoons have made a comeback, with “The Smurfs” and a new “Transformers” movie airing in theaters, new episodes of “Thundercats“ airing on Cartoon Network, and a new CGI-animated “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles“ television series in the works slated to start airing on Nickelodeon sometime next year.
Get a bit nostalgic with us (or hop on board if you’d like to get acquainted) with some of our favorite retro ‘toons with these awesome apparel picks.
