Today I suddenly got hit by a memory of earliest childhood... which turned into sort of an avalanche and unlocked more and more long forgotten things.
And the initial memory was this. Adventures in Dinosaur City (I had seen the German version of course) and suddenly it all came back. I loved this movie as a kid. I mean dinosaurs combined with Bud Spencer like fist fights... Fuck yeah. Of course it is silly now, but back then it was awesome. Interestingly there is not much to find about this. It does not even have a TV tropes page. I will search for some movie clips to refresh my memories ^^
Other things that got caught in the avalanche:
Some cartoon about people in strange cars fighting other people in strange cars (Must have been a toy tie in) I watched. You see a friend of my father recorded cartoons on VHS for us to see cause we had no satellite for a long time. All was English and we didn't speak any, but we loved them. I saw He-Man and She-Ra for the first time in English without getting anything. But there was swords and fighting... yeah. Mask was also among this... but I only ever saw two episodes... or one. Anyway the cartoon I was talking about... I do not know it's name but I know this. In the intro there was some wizardy type writing a 1 into air after evading an attack on his vehicle. Then there was a car that evaded an enemy via drilling through the ground under it. Enemies had some strange buzzsaw shooting sling-arm thingy mounted. ... that is pretty much all I remember <.<
And lastly there was another very strange gem. Clowns in Space. I dunno if it is the real title (since it was in German), but it was about Clowns flying through space in a huge top hat-looking space ship (or smaller shuttles that looked like clown noses) and had adventures while trying to reach earth. Earth it seemed has lost all humor and the clowns were their only hope. I remember these snippets: Fat dude floating on a swimming pool on a raft thingy stuffing himself while his underlings starved (food was strongly regulated and everyone was weighted regularly...if you were to heavy you got imprisoned) I am pretty sure one of the main actors was Herman Van Veen (Alfred J. Kwak was based on a song of his and he sings the title song of the cartoon). He also sung the title song to this show... It is almost impossible to find stuff about this show, to a point where I doubted its existence until I read a forum post of someone looking for it too. Edit: Found a wikipedia entry in a language i do not speak: http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Het_verhaal_van_de_clowns
