Four 80's Cartoons with Stupid Plots

Four 80's Cartoons with Stupid Plots

The 80's was a magical time with some strange cartoons.

Four 80's Cartoons with Stupid Plots

The 80's. Man, what a time to be alive I think. It seemed like everything was pretty cool in the 80's. Less awareness about concussions, dope snack foods, and Thundercats. Fun stuff. But then, there's the dumb stuff about the 80's, like the amount of foolish cartoons. I'm going to talk about four of them. Now, I will admit, I haven't seen three of the four shows I'm talking about, so you might think that I don't have the right to talk about any of them. Well, too bad. That's why I'm just talking about the plots. So here we go!

1. The Snorks

I openly don't like The Smurfs. They're little blue weird guys and one girl. Where did they all come from? Why do they have to call Papa Smurf, Papa Smurf? But anyway, The Snorks is pretty much the same thing as The Smurfs, but it's underwater (and they have stupid tubes on their head). It's just an odd show. The back story of the show is that in the 1600s, a couple of Snorks saved a captain of The Spanish Armada from drowning (According to Wikipedia). That's a pretty neat story, but it doesn't explain where the hell these things came from. The sea is a horrifying place. You never know what's lurking down there, but I'm certain it's not friendly mutated bugs who use clams as currency. The series follows Allstar Seaworthy, an athletic Snork with an uncreative name. Everybody likes him and he doesn't have any negative aspects about him. The show's most consistent bad guy is Wellington Wetworth Jr., who's rich. He's a jerk and we hate him because he has nicer stuff than us. There's also the Snork-eaters. It's a group of fish who eat Snorks. They actually sound kind of funny. I like those characters.

2. Rubix, The Amazing Cube

There it is folks. That's what hell on earth looks like. Rubix is a sentient Rubix Cube that is owned by an evil magician. Luckily, Rubix fell out of the magician's bag and was then picked up by a couple of nice kids, who apparently weren't petrified by the thing. Rubix helps the kids with their problems, and everyone is a big happy family. The plot is kind of creative, but why does this need to exist? Has anyone ever saw this show and thought "Well shit, I need to go buy a Rubix Cube?" If anything, I think this should be considered false advertising. This Rubix Cube can fly and help people through difficult situations in life. My Rubix Cube has stickers that won't re-stick when I try to put them back on. Where can I get one of the cool ones? Anyway, this is a dumb show.

3. Beverly Hills Teens

This show is probably what Archie would be if Archie and his friends were all filthy rich. With that being said, this show is completely unnecessary. The show follows Larke, a pretty blonde girl who's nice to her friends, so if you don't know her too well, prepare to face a pretty mean lady. Her love interest is some likable hunk named Troy. All the ladies want him, especially Bianca, Larke's worst enemy. They don't like each other, mainly because they both like Troy. There are some other characters as well, but they aren't that important to the plot. The problem with the show is that it's hard to relate too. Episode 46 of the series has Bianca schedule an impromptu modeling assignment for Larke, just so Bianca and Troy can study together. I'm sure most teenage girls have that happening to them all the time.

4. Gilligan's Planet

This is the exact definition of beating a dead horse. I understand Gilligan's Island was a popular show, but making it a cartoon and putting it on a new planet just doesn't really make sense. The thought of the show sounds like a joke I would make with my friends. I guess Warner Brother's were short on cash and figured this was a good way to make a quick buck. Also, why would these people go anywhere with Captain Jonas Grumby after the island incident? Not to mention, Captain Grumby is not NASA. So why did everyone just assume his rocket ship would be functioning? Just a lot of stupidity on this one.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.

According to Urban Dictionary, a "simp" is defined as "a man that puts himself in a subservient/submissive position under women in the hopes of winning them over, without the female bringing anything to the table." There are many other definitions for a "simp," but basically it's shaming men who are kind to women without getting anything in return.

Let's just stop attacking nice men. Work out your own issues, don't project your shortcomings onto another man. What happened to the brotherhood? Y'all can lie for each other, but can't raise each other up? You guys can encourage murder, gang rape, and violence against women — or at least stay silent about it — but can't let your brother know it ain't cool when they bring you down for being nice to women with no expectation?

Self-Love Is The Best Love, That's Just How It Is

Do you ever feel like you can't please everyone? Self-love will do the trick.

I've been feeling a little down lately, with the understanding that friends don't last forever and that I can't always please my parents. Life has been rough for everyone lately and it's not easy to stay happy and optimistic during these times. But I promise you, you are on this earth for a reason. You are here because God formed you, to love, and to be loved.

When things are tough, realize that you have yourself always. No one can take that away from you. You will always be you. No matter who you are, what you believe, or where you've been in life, at the end of the day, you are you. You can love you, therefore giving you one reason to stay here on this Earth.

Nobody Wants To Grieve, But That's The Price We Pay For Love

Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right.

Death always seems to come when life is good and everything starts to be going alright. And then out of nowhere, you're reminded of how cruel life can be. The stages of grief don't always go in order, they come in waves or all at once. Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right. I take comfort in the fact that everyone experiences grief, even when you feel all alone knowing that everyone goes through a process that helps a little bit.

I went from depression, to anxiety, to bipolar disorder.

I've rewritten it a thousand times in my head, but never could quite get the words onto my notepad, but tonight I'm going to sit down and write it.

I'm A Black, Gay Fashion Lover Who Grew Up In The South, And I Want To Be A Beacon For The Future

Giving your life story is never easy, but it can be, if you want to make a difference.

Jacorey Moon

Growing up in Georgia was not always the accepting place we know it to be today thanks to Atlanta. Let me preface this by saying, I had a pretty good life growing up. I was raised by a single mother who sacrificed so that I could live the life that I lived. I was spoiled rotten. One way that my mother spoiled me was through clothing.

These 10 Black Women Were Our 2000s Fashion Icons — We're Still Replicating Their Looks Now

We recollect on some of the Black stars who served as fashion icons during the 2000s.

When we talk about the 2000s, it's always filled with nostalgia. For most of us, we grew up during that era with the razr flip phones or sidekicks, and decade staple designers like Juicy Couture, Von Dutch, and Ed Hardy. It was time of daring fashion choices and red carpets that we now look back on and say, "what were they wearing?"

A sector of people that exemplifies the fashion icons who ruled the 2000s, were Black women. So, I feel as though it's my duty to shine light on these fashion icons. Here they are:

As a college student (really as a broke person with no cable,) Netflix is my go-to for solitude- style entertainment. My favorite types of shows to watch on Netflix by far, are dating shows.
