1. THE LEGEND OF ZELDA
The 1989 cartoon had run for 13 episodes and adapted the first Nintendo storyline from 1986. It told a story of Link and Princess Zelda and how they defended their kingdom from Ganon.
This villain kept trying to kidnap Zelda and conquer Hyrule. This will surely be a hit for Netflix. This is with no doubt a perfect property for Netflix as it is begging to be retold.
2. DARKWING DUCK
There was a lot of affinity for the series that it earned Emmy nominations. We can almost hear that Darkwing’s slate of goofy one-liners quacking us all up. It may be a crisis in DuckVerse but with “Ducktales” rebooted by Disney XD, it is time to strike on Netflix.
3. THE CENTURIONS
“Centurions” will be just perfect for the digital age. It had debuted in 1986 and ran for 65 episodes. It told the story of heroes who used exo-frames which allowed them to blend and fuse with mechanical systems. It was a combat cartoon and filled with action. It had episodes which dealt with magic, but most of this series was about how humans and machines evolved.
It had debuted in 1987 and ran for 26 episodes. It was about an expedition of human explorers who uses a device, Fish Tank to transform into powered marine forms. They were to re-enter this tank once more to revert to their human being form.
The animation was as slick as its affiliated properties. Fans got a Mako cameo in 2011’s “ThunderCats”.
5. THE PIRATES OF DARK WATER
The series highlighted Ren, a prince who did not know his heritage and was on an alien planet, Mer. Ren had to stop find the lost 13 Treasures of Rule. The did not complete and ended ending abruptly after 21 episodes. This will give Netflix a chance to continue this story.
6. SAMURAI PIZZA CATS
“Samurai Pizza Cats” was a cartoon that ran in 1990. It was based in Little Tokyo, which was a mechanical city that fused Japanese culture with the modern one. Emperor Fred looked over this city with Seymour “The Big” Cheese.
Palace Guard commander, “Big Al” Dente learned of this the prevailing treachery but was not able to prosecute Cheese. Dente used Speedy Cerviche, Guido Anchovy and Polly Esther, with Francine. They made the team, Samurai Pizza Cats.
“Dino-Riders” had debuted in 1988. It was about two factions, who were transported 65 million years into the past. The Valorians befriended dinosaurs.
The series ran for just 14 episodes and got comic miniseries. This show boasted its presence of voice actors like Peter Cullen but it failed to catch up with viewers.
“M.A.S.K.” debuted in 1985. The acronym was for Mobile Armored Strike Kommand. The story was about a team that used augmented vehicles in order to battle V.E.N.O.M.
It ran for 2 seasons and has 75 episodes.
9. DEFENDERS OF THE EARTH
Ming the Merciless had turned from Mongo after exhausting the resources, to Earth. Marvel Productions got 65 episodes out of this show.
It did not have lasting power. A modern reinterpretation has legs as the writers can now delve into the backstory of the characters.
10. BUCKY O’HARE
Created by Larry Hama and Michael Golden, it lasted for 13 episodes.
The heroes fought for of S.P.A.C.E and it was pretty cool but it was chaotic and never took itself seriously. As outlandish as the show was, the entertainment factor remains undeniable. A revamped series may be pretty much a win-win.
