The folks over at HecklerSpray have put together another great 80s list…
Did you know that the voice of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles baddie Shredder was actually voiced by Uncle Phil from The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air?
No? Neither did we – and we’re still recovering! Unless someone is playing a joke on us. Damn them! But it got us thinking: Why do we care so much about these characters? What is it about the cartoon baddies that we love so much?
Aren’t we supposed to hate them? Boo them when they come on the screen like some kind of pantomime villain? No, and the reason why is because they are usually the most interesting characters in the cartoon.
So we have decided to come up with 16 of the best 80s cartoon villains. The reason we went for the 80s is because, well, that was when we were all kids. Plus it was a golden era. Or is that what everyone says?
Enjoy, and feel free to tell us which ones we’ve missed.
