Favorite 1980's Saturday Morning Character

OF COURSE when I decide to comit to this community, stuff falls apart all around me and I struggle to fit it in - sorry, folks!

Meanwhile, 1980's Saturday Morning Historical Recreation Society member Bonnie has started a question over on Twitter that I hashtagged as #80sSarurday that you may wish to participate in either here or on Twitter (@Saturday1980s) because it's fun to simply declare your preference, sure, but I kind of need more room to defend my answer than a simple 140 characters.

So simply put, which 1980's Saturday Morning Character do you think was the best?

Post and defend your answers in the comments below or on Twitter!

As a starting point, I suggest that Rubik The Amazing Cube is superlatively the greatest because he has the word "Amazing" right in his name! Only Spider-Man and his friends share that distinction!

It was "Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends", so Spider-Man can't claim the title of "amazing" among Saturday Mornings, but his friends can. So Rubik, Iceman, and Firestar have that honor.

I'm going to give some though to what I think was the best character.

True, but the pre-Friends version was "The Amazing Spider-Man", so I think it still applies...

It's a hard question! I'm not even going to reply to those on Twitter who answered with stuff like "Thundercats"... THAT'S NOT A SINGLE CHARACTER NOR IS IT SATURDAY MORNING AAAAAARGH!!!

I considered "Dark Rider" from Turbo Teen, my favorite unrevealed villain of all time... but the more I think about it, it's got to be either Teebo from The Ewoks, or Teddy Ruxpin...

The Amazing Spider-Man was a 70s live-action show. In 1981 both Spider-Man and Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends premiered. But from what I can tell, there has not been a cartoon named The Amazing Spider-Man.

Thundercats? Really? Augh!

I have given a lot of thought, and decided my favorite Saturday Morning cartoon character (as seen on my Twitter feed) has to be Monchichi because I have a Monchichi stuffed animal in my collection that I've had since the beginning of time. That is my only deciding factor because I'm awful at this and it's haaaaaaard to choose only one because there was so much awesomenes packed into Saturday Mornings in the 80s!


I'm going for Sheila from D&D. Because she had the invisibility cloak, way before Harry Potter.
