Eew, you want the 80's version of Popeye? =p

Personally, I'd like to see:

Kidd Video (was I the only one that watched this as a kid?)
Alf (the cartoon)
Captain Power (not a cartoon, actually, but what the heck)

Actually, I think you were the only one that watched Kidd Video! Yikes.

There were a lot of bad 80's cartoons, but if I had to watch any I'd pick:

Dungeons and Dragons
Godzilla (maybe)
Shazam!
Tarzan/Lone Ranger/Zorro Adventure Hour
Plastic Man Comedy-Adventure Hour (I think that's the name?)
Super Friends
Challenge of the Super Friends
Super Powers Team
Mighty Max (which might be the 90's)

I'm not sure I'd actually buy any of these on dvd, but I'd watch them again if they re-ran on Cartoon Network.

I want Conan the Adventurer on DVD. Not sure if it was 80's or early 90's though.

That is something I wouldn't mind seeing as well, so rare for an American cartoon to have a beginning and an end. Conan was 90's if I remember correctly.

I want Astroboy (80s version), preferably with English subs. I'm not sure if it's available or not, though I do know there's a spanking new Astroboy series just out in Japan!

I would give anything for Muppet Babies sets!

Er, or at least until I got the first one and realized that my tastes were rather different when I was eight or so. Hey, I can still dream, right?

All I can say is they gotta release Rubix Cube, Mighty Orbots, and Pac-Man...and maybe Lazer Tag.
Wow gotta love those obscure 80's Cartoons.

Ralph Bakshi's The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse, Dungeons and Dragons, and The Real Ghostbusters are the ones i'd want in my DVD collection.

Don't know about your titles.

Not sure if it's an 80's, but I grew up on "The Lost City Of Gold " cartoon in Australia, and it would be neat to see this come out.

Only three Saturday morning shows from the 80's worth buying:

Pee-Wee's Playhouse
The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse
The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley (love the episode where Ed goes searching for his runaway goldfish, plus every episode has an appearance from Count Floyd!)

Also have a soft spot for early episodes of Beakman's World and for some strange reason, the Little Shop of Horrors and Beetlejuice cartoons. But I probably wouldn't buy them.
