HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE
Mattel’s very famous He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, reruns put aside, aired from 1983 to 1985. The plot made you discover the mythical planet of Eternia, where King Randor and Queen Marlena’s son Adam – aka Prince of Eternia- made a point of honor out of playing the ultimate justice defender. To do so, he often would have to use his sword that allowed him to transform into the mighty He-man; and in order to proceed, he’d raise it above his head and say the follow sentence: “By the Power of Grayskull, I HAVE THE POWER”. During his adventures, his friends The Sorceress, Teela, her father the Man-At-Arms and Orko were always there to give him a helping hand as well as his faithful tiger Cringer who would also metamorphose into He-Man’s Battle Cat during the process. Together they would, time after time, defeat Skeletor and his henchmen.
And to say these people use to be our role models duh!

Princess Adora is Prince Adam’s twin sister – you know Adam, prince of Eternia? – and while her bro lives on Eternia she, on the other hand, lives on Etheria (Hahahaha right…). She will quickly discover that she was taken from her family when only baby by the villain Hordak who is her archenemy on the show. Just like her brother, Adora can transform into the ‘Princess of Power’ She-Ra, and to do so she also needs to raise her sword and say the following: “For the Honor of Grayskull… I am She-Ra!”. During her everyday battle to take down Hordak and his Horde Troopers, she can rely on her friends and especially on Bow her sweetheart Robin Hood..yeah because she is a girl after all let’s not forget!
She-Ra and He-Man sing in duet….why did they have to be brother and sister.. always wondered
Wonder what She-Ra’s purse looked like?
Evidently guess who is on the other side
JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS
From 1985 to 1988 Hasbro, Marvel Productions and Sunbow Productions got together in order to produce Jem and the Holograms, an avant-garde cartoon who revolved around rock music. Jerrica Benton was left orphan after the death of of father, and while being at the head of a foster home also ends up taking over the role of sub-owner/manager of the musical company Starlight Music, but this will not turn out to be the only ‘gift’ left to her by her father Emmett Benton! The latter will also become the owner of “Synergy” a Holographic program who will allow her -using a a pair of earrings – to become, along with her best friends Aja and Shana and her baby sister Kimber, the pop-star Jem and her band the Holograms. Their main rival band will turn out to be ‘The Misfits’, three perfidious girls who will be ready to do anything in order to win the amazing contract both bands will be ‘battling’ for. Rio Pacheco is a recurrent character in the show and Jerrica’s boyfriend, she can always rely on him although he can turn out to be quite jealous at moments…but she can only forgive him.

BATTLE OF THE PLANETS
The G-Force, consisting of Mark, Jason, Princess, Keyop, and Tiny has been subject to a certain controversy as it also exists under a more mature form that puts forward themes you basically would like to keep out of your kid’s reach – at least for now- but let’s focus on the show we got to adore as kids in which five youngsters with superhuman abilities would do all that was in their power to defend Earth from Planet Spectra’s menace. To do so they would evolve aboard their main ship the Phoenix that would allow them to access individual vehicles operated by each member personally like the “galacti-cycle” or the “Space Bubble”. Their archenemy was Zoldar who would get direct orders from the great villain the “Luminous One”.
We all wanted to endorse this costume… well some actually did!
Ah yes the Princess Oh la la!
We knew he was a tad chubby but this is defo a fail!
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES
Day after day how many of us embraced the fictional characters of Donatello, Raphael, Leonardo and Michelangelo while they fought crime in the undergrounds of New York City. The Teenage mutant ninja turtles helped by their adoptive father and Sensei Splinter – A rat- would spend the most of their time trying to frame their archenemy Shredder a villainous ninjutsu master and his famous Foot Clan. Helped by April a young and talented journalist, these four pizza adepts would use various masteries such as Katana’s for Leonardo, bō staff for Donatello, Sai’s for Raphael and nunshaku’s for Michelangelo to take down all forms of crime while learning the human values of life.

The battle between Autobots and Decepticons is no longer a secret for anyone. The alien robots Hasbro turned into a worldwide phenomena originally aired in 1984 and twenty seven years after – as well as three movies later -don’t seem to see their popularity decrease, not the most. On your right you have Optimus Prime and his troops which include personalities such as Jetfire his second in command, Ratchet the medic and veteran, Bumblebee who transforms into a Volkswagen Beetleor or even Bulkhead who can take a Cybertronian Bulldozer form, just to name a few, while on your left you’ll find the emblematic Decepticon leader Megatron and characters such as Shockwave, Blitzwing or Lugnut.

All three of them where adopted by David Seville – aka Dave- a song writer whose patience is frequently put to test, especially when it comes to Alvin whose imagination seems to have not limits.

The Snorks belong to the Hanna-Barbera family and aired from 1984 to 1989. Deep down in the ocean could be found the underwater city of Snorkland which was inhabited by small colorful creatures called the Snorks such as the show’s main character Allstar Seaworthy, a very smart yellow male Snork whose belt buckle would be the indicator of a bright idea, Casey kelp, a pretty pink female Snork who also turns out to be Allstar’s sweetheart and like him Casey is quite intelligent and kind-hearted, but also others like ‘Junior’ as spoiled-brat orange male Snork son of Snorkland’s governor who likes to mock Allstar and his friends or “Seaworthy” a purple male Snork, uncle of Allstar whose goal in life is to take over Snorkland at any cost.

Is it still really necessary to present the Smurfs? Let’s do it in anyway! At the beginning the Smurfs are the creation of the Belgian cartoonist Peyo, and given the success the comic series quickly encountered, they were then adapted under the cartoon form that originally aired from 1981 to 1990. Hidden in the middle of a forest is the very hard to access Smurf village where live very cheerful little blue creatures: the Smurfs. To start off there were exactly ninety-nine Smurfs each of which with their own personality; The village leader is Papa Smurf, the only one to wear red clothing as well as having a beard, he is the wise character on the show and when he’s not locked up in his laboratory working on magical spells and potions he spends his time getting his little Smurfs out of trouble – that, let’s face it, they are very good at getting themselves into! Other notable characters include the Smurfette who was originally created by the show’s villain Gargamel in an attempt to try and trap the Smurfs but who Papa Smurf finally turned into a real member of the clan, Brainy Smurf who wears glasses and spends his time giving his fellow Smurf’s never ending lectures, Hefty Smurf the tough guy and strongest Smurf of them all, Grouchy Smurf who doesn’t like anything nor anyone.. well not really as deep down inside he will never let down his friends when in need, Jokey Smurf who gets a kick out of playing pranks on the others or Vanity Smurf who is beyond precious according to himself and can spend hours admiring himself in a pocket mirror…just to name a few.
New Smurfs? These guys have a few ideas…
Unbeatable when it comes to the Smurfs? Oki then why not give the a shot.
Call me Papa baby!
So what would you say?

Rainbow Brite started off as a Hallmark card character before she got her own cartoon show in 1984. “Rainbow” originally is an orphan who with help of her friends the “Color Kids” – Red Butler, Lala Orange, Canary Yellow, Patty O’Green, Buddy Blue, Indigo and Shy Violet – as well as her white sprite Twink and her beautiful white talking horse Starlite, must find the ‘Sphere of Light’using her magical Color Belt when needed.

Remember the Popples, those very High-Tech soft-toys that you could turn inside out in order to give them a ball form? Oh come on, we know you do! Well like many toys of their generation they also were allotted a TV show which originally aired from 1986 to 1987. Bonnie and Billy Wagner, two young kids get dragged into numerous adventures by their Popple friends who are hidden secret to their parents. each of their Popples comes in a different color and has its own personality; Party is a big pink Popple that never seems to get tired and just wants to party day and night, Pretty Cool – aka PC- is a blue Popple who tends to try and stay reasonable compared to most of his fellow Popple friends although he also is all fun and games while Pancake the marroon Popple is very cuddly for instance. The Wagner kids have nine Popples all together, and during the second season the cast grows when new kids, Mike and Penny move in next door with Popples of their own.

The Popples were actually stalkers
A few years back – or decades should we say- it was a real fashion to own a Care Bear…”You don’t have a Care bear?? Poor soul, how come, don’t your parents love you?” (I don’t care I didn’t have one anyway so just saying… you CAN survive!). These happy colorful teddy-bears first aired under their TV show form in 1985 and were later on joined by their cousins the…Care Bear Cousins – Brave Heart Lion, Bright Heart Raccoon, Cozy heart penguin etc. Coming back to the Care bears themselves, leading characters include Love-A-Lot bear and his red heart belly badge, Good-Luck Bear the green Irish bear vector of good luck with his four leaf clover, and who had a crush on Polite Panda but also Wish Bear – we really didn’t realize back then did we? – Grumpy Bear the Inventor or even Tender-Heart bear who would help people express their feelings…just to name a few.
Who would we be not to propose you a of course!

Must of skipped a few episodes

Other honorable mentions…
THE MYSTERIOUS CITIES OF GOLD
It started like this: “It is the 16th century. From all over Europe, great ships sail west to conquer the New World, the Americas. The men eager to seek their fortune, to find new adventures in new lands. They long to cross uncharted seas and discover unknown countries, to find secret gold on a mountain trail high in the Andes. They dream of following the path of the setting sun that leads to El Dorado and the Mysterious Cities of Gold.” During thirty-nine episodes we got to follow the adventures of Esteban “Child of the Sun” who was rescued at sea by the Spanish navigator Mendoza, who you frankly never are sure what to think of as he tends to save him one day and stab him in the back another, Zia the daughter of an Inca Priest and Tao the last living descendant of the sunken empire of Mu. While occasionally flying the Golden Condor they will live many adventures during their quest to find the Cities of Gold while having to defeat Francisco Pizarro and his men as well as Mendoza himself and his two clumsy employes Gomez and Gaspard.
AROUND THE WORLD WITH WILLY FOG
The cartoon adaptation of Around the World in Eighty Days -Jules Verne everyone- first aired in 1983 and was quite a success in Europe. Willy Fog, an English gentleman lion is the main character and basically plays the role of Phileas Fogg who has to fulfill this amazing bet, when challenged to do so by London’s Reform Club which he is a member of, helped by Rigodon a Lynx hired as his butler -Passepartout in the novel- and the beautiful Romy, a panther whom he is in love with, without forgetting his faithful Tico who spends a decent amount of time hiding in his bag.
Mobile Armored Strike Kommand – aka M.A.S.K, was broadcasted from 1985 to 1986 with seventy-five episodes and was a major success due also to the cartoon’s derivative toys. During the show’s two seasons, Matt Trakker, leader of the M.A.S.K and his gang fought the criminal organization of V.E.N.O.M -Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem- using high-tech vehicles which could transform and by wearing masks that would give them super powers. Other characters who should be mentioned are Matt’s adoptive son Scott who he raised alone and the latter’s robot T-Bob that Scott seems to spend most of his time optimizing.
Every boy’s dream toy back in the 80′s
DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS
Dungeons and Dragons was a cartoon directly inspired by the role playing game of the same name and that aired from 1983 to 1985. To make short the plot is about a group of teenagers, Hank the Ranger, Eric the Cavalier, Diana the Acrobat, Presto the Magician, Sheila the Thief and Bobby the Barbarian, trying to find their way home after taking a ride on magical roller coaster who leads them to mystical grounds, and where they meet the Dungeon Master who gives them all a specific weapon to help them fulfill their quest. Many adventures and enemies await them all along the way including Venger “the Force of Evil” the main villain. One question remains…did they ever make it back home by the way?
Nostalgia hits some quite bad
Let’s face it, men and women can’t seem to live without each other and while they ‘somehow’ tend to complete each other, the path to cohabitation often turns out to be all but easy. During this incredible journey down the yellow brick road, you will most probably stumble across unforeseen obstacles such as communication, rationalization, understanding and compromise – just to make short. Whatever your gender, in all cases you have access to one powerful weapon which is humor and that will more often than enough be the best alternative.
Worse pick-up lines ever (do NOT use these they do NOT work):
When an orgasm has been achieved through sex, you can measure theta waves. These are also said to cause the “running high” feeling of euphoria experienced sometimes by marathon runners. If theta waves are taken as a criterion, the entire brain emits theta waves when women reach an orgasm that are close to 10 times stronger than when men climax. So, if theta waves are an indication of an orgasm’s strength, then women experience an orgasm that is physically impossible for men to go through. Putting it a little crudely, if the intensity of a woman’s orgasm was played through a man’s brain, there’s a danger that the shock to his system would kill him. That risk makes it impossible to experiment on a man at the moment. And men can never become women.
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
Men: A man has six items in his bathroom — a toothbrush, shaving cream, razor, a bar of Dial soap, and a towel from the Holiday Inn.
Women: The average number of items in the typical woman’s bathroom is 437. A man cannot identify most of these items.
Rules for Women:
Shower like a woman – Shower like a man
Rules for Men:
We dare you not to laugh at least once! Bet on?
Not as easy as it seems right?

Here is a list of exotic dishes and drinks found all around our good old planet, it may be wise not to read this post just before or right after lunch/dinner… YOU WERE WARNED!!!
Now that we are all good…. enjoy!!!
Baby Mice Wine
Found in : Korea and China
What it is: New born mice 2-3 days old still alive are added to rice moonshine where they then macerate for over a year. This very specific drink is said to be known for its tonicity and is suppose to be a great remedy for any illness. While some will stick the alcohol, others will enjoy the mice also…
Found in: The Philippines, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam
What it is: Fertilized duck eggs are kept warm until the embryo is revealed to be at least 15-20 days old after which they are boiled alive. Balut is known to be a real delicacy in those countries in particular and is also consumed for its high level as far as proteins are concerned.
Found in: Islands of Palau and Cambodia
What it is: People who treat themselves to this soup, as many dishes you will find in this list, evidently find it delicious but also do so because of the medical virtues supposedly related to it.

After having bats presented to you, and once your choice made, the cook will then proceed as for what is of getting your order prepared asap. Note that some prefer to eat the bat raw…
Found in: Sardinia –Italy
What it is: A cheese made out of goats milk which is left to ferment until it has reached a decomposition stage obtained by the digestive action of the cheese fly’s larvae. The latter are added on purpose and will lead to the cheese reaching a very soft texture which is the goal here. While some people will then prefer to avoid eating the larvae others, on the other hand, will consume them too. Maybe best to avoid before a date.
Found in: Cambodia
What it is: These spiders raised in holes are a specific species of tarantula that are tossed in a mixture of monosodium glutamate, sugar and salt before being deep fried in oil by their vendors. While being appreciated by the locals, the spiders turn out to also be a great touristic ‘attraction’ and you will find them all over the markets in Cambodia.

These days any lollipop fan will be happy to know that sugar-free Vodka or tequila flavored candy containing a scorpion or even a worm are no longer a dream and can be purchased for around 4.50£.
Put aside the fact that nobody ever really wants to end up in hospital, sadly it does occur for more or less serious reasons, and as we all know, one of the most exciting moments of the day during a stay in hospital is….the food! Of course you’ll often get to pick your dish amongst a little list – which will also depend on your condition – but between what you’ll see on the paper and what you’ll actually discover in your plate, hmmm you could be in for quite a surprise!
Also, let’s not omit to mention the quantity of food served to you, personally I don’t really ever recall feeling ‘full’ after a hospital meal, but maybe this is actually done on purpose? It could be some sort of strategy to keep you hanging on until the next, and make it look more exciting – because riddled with hunger you may tend to sublimate…
Anyway here goes, yummy yummy, so where shall it be for you? Food in….
What to expect from uncle Sam’s land
Oki, but what is it?
United Arab Emirates
Could be worth the price
Looks about right
The VIP corner then?
This is the starter right?
Dehli..cious? Can’t really tell
While it doesn’t look very exciting it’s probably very correct
Now this on the other hand looks exciting…
I’ll go with the subtitle
Must be easy on the taste buds
Looks simple, but hey is that a cocktail?
Who cares about the aesthetic side after all, at least it WILL fill you up
Doesn’t look all that bad!
Tired of the Pokèmons? Do your kids drive you nuts with the never-ending list of painful creatures, their headbanging names and evolutions… – not to mention that they also can have kids of their own and make us sound so has-been when we get questioned about them without being able to answer (What you don’t know that Warltortle evolves into Blastoise, that he is 87.5% Male and 12.5% female, that his type is water and that as he levels up he gains powers such as a tail whip or a rapid spin??? Noooo = Epic Fail!)
If the answer is YES, well you may want to check out the following video… Pokémons: Apokélypse – the movie WE will finally enjoy.
