Saturday Morning Watchmen

If you can’t wait until tomorrow to see Watchmen, allow yourself to reminisce with the late-80s animated version of the tale (click on the flashing "Watch this movie" thing). 

Boy, those were the days.  I loved the episode where they tangled with the mummies, although I guess my favorite was the Transformers crossover.

Via, whom else, The Beat.

    Damnit, you are making me remember why growing up on cartoons form the 80s SUCKED.

    It wasn’t till Tiny Toons and the Disney Afternoon that they became cool.

    I see it in 5 hours

    Seeing Silk Spectre front for The Holograms that one summer I had the mumps. Epic.

    God, I loved this show. Used to have ’em all on VHS, but lost them in a move. Remember the two-parter with Moloch? That was awesome.

    Then that prick Alan Moore had to come around and make it all serious and self-referential and shit. Totally ruined them.

    My favorite bit is Nite Owl dancing like a maniac, maniac on the floor.

    I’m going to see the movie next weekend, but I already know it cannot be as good as this.

    The first season wasn’t bad, but it totally jumped the shark when they added Rorshach’s loudmouthed little cousin, Smudgy. It was kind of fun when they’d visit Sally Jupiter’s mansion in the Hollywould hills and have old-time stars like Nora Desmond, Neville Sinclair, or Ron Reagan do guest voices.

    As much as I love both watchmen and transformers, that reference is actually based on something far worse from the 80s

    I daresay its horrible I remember this.
