Kidd Video

In the 1980's I watch a lot of cartoons. There was a wealth to watch such as The Smurfs, Thundercats, G.I. Joe, Silverhawks, Transformers, He-Man, She-Ra, Dungeons and Dragons, My Little Pony, Danger Mouse, Inspector Gadget, The Gummi Bears, The Get-a-Long Gang, and a slew of others.

Apparently I am the only one in my peer group that also watched Kidd Video. All I remember about it was that it was a group of real kids in a band that get hijacked by an audio terrorist called Master Blaster. Suddenly they're cartoons and doing cool cartoon-like things. I remember not caring much for the cartoon parts of things, and waiting for the live-action portions of the show to come on. I really believed that these guys were singing and playing their own instruments a la The Monkees This was the closest thing to MTV I had since I was kept in the Dark Ages of terrestrial television. They did have some songs that are ingrained in my head and I catch myself singing these songs every once in a while. I ask the wife if she remembers these songs and she looks at me like I'm a contestant in a Michael Phelps swim meet.

This song was one of my favorites. Enjoy!
