I remember the ALF cartoon, i remember the Punky Brewster cartoon, i even remember this cartoon where two normal kids go to school at this High School full of ghosts and monsters and such.

Rambo....nope.

Perhaps the three people in the world who actually saw the show consider it "classic".

The ALF cartoon kicked ass. I had a ton of those trading cards. I remember each pack came with a card that was part of a big picture of ALF. I don't think I ever completed it though. I have no idea what that has to do with Rambo but anyway...

I remember Rambo! I remember watching it when I was a kid living in Chicago, and I actually won a Rambo cartoon contest that our local Fox network was having. I went down to the studio and received one of every Rambo toy there was at the time. Including a cool 6-wheeled jeep/tank thingy and a bamboo lookout-tower-type playset. Couldn't tell you anything about the cartoon today, though.

Uh, there may still be a few of them down in my parents basement. I remember that they had two different John Rambo figures. One of them was based on the TV character and was dressed in jeans and like a white sweatshirt or something. The other resembled what he wore in the second movie. No shirt, green pants, red headband. Came with a cool rambo knife, M-60, and a rocket launcher. No bow and arrow, though. Pretty cool toys.

Hmm. Does this mean there's hope for the Mr. T cartoon? Or maybe even something good like the Ed Grimley cartoon?

I think I saw a few minutes of Rambo once. It was the kind of failed syndicated show that you could only find at 6:30 in the morning on weekdays - probably on WSBK (like Bots Master, Conan, Phantom 2040). It never made it to Saturday mornings.

I wonder why they never made a Terminator cartoon.

Screw all that, what about the Hulk Hogan cartoon? Now that was a classic show.

Searched in some boxes and I do indeed have some of the figures. Like Xander said, there's 2 Rambo figures. One has his First Blood Part 2 garb, while the other has him in jeans and a Forces of Freedom shirt. The Part 2 one has this little spring loaded rocket launcher. I have a few other figures I had to look up; Turbo, Mad Dog, and Black Dragon.

If it sells for about 10 bucks I might pick it up. I never even knew they made cartoons of Rambo.

Well Hell, now that those other two volumes have been announced, I *do* remember the series! Actually I do remember the toys, but not the show. I remember seeing them in toy stores.

This company sees some harcore fans coming!

FOUR fucking volumes for this? How about all the episodes in one set, since I don't think this ran for more than a season.

Rip off!

TV Tome says that there were 65 episodes, so that leaves room for another two volumes beyond the four already announced. The retail price may not be that great, but I'd hardly call it a ripoff with 11 episodes on each disc. A box set may be coming once all of the volumes are released.

P.S. DDD's 20% off sale brings the price of the first two volumes down to $6.37 each.
58 cents an episode. Not bad at all.
