Select an 80s Cartoon for Major Motion Picture

Do so based on the intros. Which of these below would you greenlight based on the intro? The 80s had some kick-ass intros, but then again, almost everything was set on selling toys. I'm not including GI Joe, Transformers, or He-Man as they have either already been made or being rebooted. If you would like to see something outside of these selections, please vote "other" and post a link to the intro. Have fun!

Half the threads in this forum scream "I'm single".

The Smurfs movie has been coming on HBO a lot recently so I watched it. Terrible, terrible, terrible. Not even NPH could redeem it.

All those in the poll would be awesome. Thundercats and Silverhawks, IF DONE RIGHT could be great films, with a great story and design. Dont let Bay anywhere near these, dont need some asshole changing things or to focus on humans.

It's M.A.S.K. by a mile. I'm shocked it hasn't been done yet, as it seems like a no-brainer.

Even though it's not from the '80s, it's still the cartoon of this type that I liked best.

It's definitely M.A.S.K., but most of the other big '80s cartoons had newer incarnations to continue the brand the past three decades while people younger than 35 have probably never heard of the show.

Re: Select an 80s Cartoon for Major Motion Picture

I was going to suggest Darkwing Duck, but that started in 1991.

But, I don't think I'd want it as live action.

Give that to James Cameron, and you would have a winner. Is that Dokken doing the theme song? Sounds like them.

For some reason, I could see this kicking ass in the hands of someone like JJ Abrams or Joss Whedon.
