The internet is FULL of fun remembrances of our childhoods – every Friday, we’ll share our #FlashbackFridayFunday thoughts on something from the deep recesses of our memory.
This week – I’m remembering the ThunderCats-esque cartoon called SilverHawks! Who else remembers this 1986 classic?
Little known fact – this series was developed by Rankin/Bass! Yeah, the people behind Rudolph brought us SilverHawks AND ThunderCats!
The cross-overs for ThunderCats and SilverHawks were no-brainers if you listened closely.
The voice of QuickSilver was also Tygra. Lt. Bluegrass was Lion-O. And yes, the big bad Mon*Star was the same as Mumm-Ra.
And of course, the toys! THE TOYS!!
My brother and I had most of them. When you squeezed the legs together, the arms would shoot out into flying mode. Copper Kid was my favorite.
My brother had this bad guy with the buzzsaw hands – SO cool! I can still hear the sound he made when you revved him up.
There ya go for this week. What should we flashback to next time? Hit the comments and let us know.
