Whether we were dreaming of hanging out with chipmunk brothers or becoming a stealthy turtle who loves eating pizza in gutters, the 80s made for some pretty amazing television. This list contains funny 80s cartoons and action-packed 80s animations. 

Was there ever a better cartoon than The Simpsons? This show chronicles the lives of The Simpsons, a family from Springfield, IL., who always seem to make life a little more interesting (thanks, Homer). Created by Matt Groening in 1989, this classic timepiece is still on the air today, and it's the one 80s animation that holds the record for the longest running American animation of all time.

Other good 80s shows like DuckTales and The Gummi Bears also appear on this list of 1980s cartoon shows. The Transformers was a favorite 1980s TV show and it eventually became a series of blockbuster films. The Transformers aired from 1984-1987.
