Hello my fellow 80s cartoon afficianatos. Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Bilbo.

Does anyone here remember the Sat morning show that ran around '84-'85 that was a live action show where the kids would turn into cartoon versions of themselves? The show would air music videos. It wasn't a particularly good show but for some reason, it bothers me that I can't remember the name.

Also, can someone tell me the name of the Japanese cartoon that featured a space ship that looked like a Naval battle ship w/ a laser cannon sticking out of the bow? This aired in the early 80s.

Thank you for any help.

The first sounds like Kidd Video.

Opening on YouTube

The second sounds like Star Blazers (a.k.a. Space Battleship Yamato).

Thanks Lepricahn.

Man, Kid Video looks a lot worse than I remember.

I suppose revisiting childhood favorites can be disillusioning like that sometimes. But I love it- Kidd Video was a fun show to watch as a kid and I like watching it now when I can.
(But I never really stopped liking any of my childhood favorites either. lol) Laughing Cool

They probably won't mean anything to those outside the UK but these shows were my favourites. I still enjoy watching them today.

Nothing beats Rainbow! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEWV3NkY04U A bit like Sesame Street on acid.

Dangermouse. Much better than all the US cartoons we got at the same time (imo). A shame no one really makes kids tv here anymore, we just buy it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnx9K0wXuQU

It had a short, chubby chap in a white space suit and a bunch of taller minions in identical but black suits. Both had red eye pieces I think (or possibly slit visors) and looked a little like Death Star gunners from Star Wars, though their helmets were stretched vertically. They were on some sort of moon facility and I remember the white-suited chap being sad when the others left.

I think that is RoboStory.
