80s TV that we watched in the 90s: toys that created mega-hit TV shows

Pound puppies, Care Bears, My Little Pony!

 

It seems like television in the ’80’s and ‘90s sort of got stuck in terms of cartoons.  People just didn’t have that many new ideas.  Instead of searching in the traditional places, wherever those might be, they just went to their kids’ toy boxes and took out the first, much-loved toy they could find. This seems like the only reason that so many television shows during this time were based on children’s toys.  Take out your Grumpy bear with the bald spots or your Starlight pony missing her shiny hair and let’s reminisce about some of the raddest television shows based on toys.
