If I had a million dollars…


By Shawn Robare

So in thinking about a cartoon from the 80′s (see below) that is sadly out of print, it’s started me thinking about what IS in print from the 80′s (and a few from the 90′s). I figured I’d take this opportunity to create a list (most link to amazon.com if you actually want to pick some of these gems up.) I’m also going to include an additional section of titles now out of print on DVD as well as a section of frustrating titles (frustrating for me because they are available in a different DVD region coding or language than mine and I just think that’s unfair.) So here’s the freaking list already:
