80s Animated Soundtracks: We Can Do Anything

I had thought it was only a bad, pac-man cereal-induced dream but no, there really was a Garbage Pail Kids movie. Populated mostly by little people in costume, the Garbage Pail kids movie came out in 1987 as a pretty unique endeavor in being a movie based on a collector card line parodying a toy. But still, it sucked. And so did this song: We can do anything. Courtesy TheEternalTriumphant Share...

80s Animated Soundtracks: Nothing Can Stop the Schmooze

When My Little Pony: the Movie came out, I was not prepared for this big purple oozing thing which was the unstoppable Schmooze. Villains in Ponyland, let’s say, were rather lackluster but the purple, oozing Schmooze hit me out of left field for sure. It’s an odd song and while I can appreciate the vocal acoustics, in the end it just sounds like they ran out of money for an actual score. In any case, it’s definitely...

80s Animate Soundtracks: The Hugga Bunch song

Though not actually animated, the Hugga Bunch debuted by Kenner in 1985 with a kickoff tv movie by Filmfair and featured puppets, or dolls, or some sort of terrifying non-human creature acting with actual children. Some people still love those weird dolls, some people have night terrors from them but either way, I think their horrible theme song is pretty unforgettably bad. Courtesy Ashley Merrill Share...

80s Animated Soundtracks: I Want to Remember This

Bon Voyage Charlie Brown (And don’t come back!) was the 4th Charlie brown movie to be produced and thought by many to be the best of them at the time though considered to be the darkest of the films at the time. What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown? Is the next in line after Bon Voyage and caps up the storyline. The poignant I Want to Remember is a fan favourite but the singer is not credited. Anyone have any idea? Courtesy...

80sAnimated Soundtracks: Funny Little Things

While The Hobbit by Rankin & Bass predates the 80s, the Lord of the Rings trilogy was much a part of 80s fantasy animation. Funny Little Things is a funny little song about some odd birds indeed. Courtesy Kanal von GlennReturns Share...
