  1. I remember so many of those 80s cartoons. I had the Ewoks comics, Popple’s comics, and Transformer comics from the time as well. Most of those cartoons were garbage, but a few still hold up today, like Jem. The M and M comic ad was very common back then, I think I remember it from some Superman comics.

    I’ve got a Monchichi, still!

  2. Amazing! I used to love looking at comics when I was younger… I used to flick through the racks of a comic and book stall / area inside the Barrowlands when I would visit on a Saturday afternoon. That’s when I first discovered a lot of the lesser celebrated superheroes (like Daredevil). Anyhoo, I like that Daredevil cover and my favourite ad is easily the Hubba Bubba Gumfighting!! (Yeah, I was also Hubba Bubba kid!)

    • I love that Daredevil cover too and it’s one of the few comics I still have that survived from back in the day. Ah, Saturdays at the comic shop was always something to look forward to then. Yes… we had Hubba Bubba too, and also Bazooka Joe, remember that? I’m sure it came with a free sticker or transfer? Will have to go and look that one up.

      • I do remember some flaming hot gum ball thing that came with something like a sticker or transfer, but can’t remember the name.

  3. Hello TVTA, I remember a few of these comics. They also remind me of the VHS video compilations that were available in the 80’s. Cartoons similar to the ones shown on the “Kids Love Saturdays” advert were bundled up on 2-3 hour long videos and were popular in video rental shops here in the UK (and yes I remember Betamax format video tapes!). The parents hired the videos to keep their kids quiet for a few hours at a time. Some were good but others were a bit lower quality!
