On this page we're going to jog your memory with some 80s cartoon T-shirt ideas. Of course, you probably won't have watched every cartoon or advert featured here, but I hope you will find at least one or two that you will have enjoyed watching back in the day.

Why not celebrate your childhood with one of these retro T-shirts?
Barbapapa T-Shirts

This unusual cartoon was aired in the 1970s and featured a family of shape-shifting, blob creatures with no legs. They were thoughtful of the environment and tried to educate kids to be environmentally aware. There are a couple of top quality T-shirt designs available which are both available in many colours and sizes for both Men and Women.
The other design is featured below.
Bod T-Shirts

There were just 13 episodes of Bod (each one started with the announcement "here comes bod") which was originally shown in 1975 on BBC TV. The cartoon was repeated until 1984 and featured the voices of Dad's Army's John Le Mesurier, and Kids TV presenters Derek Griffiths and Maggie Henderson.

Captain Caveman T-Shirts

Remember this prehistoric superhero? Perhaps, one of the best-remembered features was his battle cry where he called out his own name. Captain Caveman and The Teen Angels was aired from the late 70s and into the 80s and was created by Hanna-Barbera.

Count Duckula T-Shirts

This horrifying British cartoon series was a spin-off from Danger Mouse and ran for four series, starting in the Autumn of 1988. Count Duckula lived in a Dracula style, scary-looking castle with Igor the butler and his over-sized nanny.

Jamie and the Magic Torch T-Shirts

Transport yourself back to Cuckoo Land with one of these retro cartoon T-shirts. Although regarded as an 80s cartoon, the series originally aired on ITV from 1976 to 1979, but was repeated during the 80s. Best memories for me are Jamie's pet dog Wordsworth and his mother saying "sleep well, Jamie" at the start of each episode.
M.A.S.K. T-Shirts

M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armoured Strike Kommand) was an action-packed cartoon series that originally aired for two season from 1985 to 1986, with 75 episodes in total. The storylines revolved around a law enforcement task force taking on a criminal organistation called V.E.N.O.M.

Mr Benn T-Shirts

This cartoon was one of my favourites from my childhood, and I always used to get excited about what character Mr Benn was going to transform himself into in the fancy dress shop. There were only ever 13 episodes, but one extra episode was shown in 2005 entitled Gladiator.

Mr Men T-shirts

Arthur Lowe was the perfect choice for narrating the original Mr. Men cartoon series, and the wide array of characters was fascinating to young children, including myself! There are many tees available and our favourite is this amusing "Bend it like Bump" design.

P-P-Pick Up A Penguin T-shirts

Okay, so this wasn't actually a cartoon, but we all remember this TV advert don't we? This fine-looking tee features the old school imagery from back in the day and is available for both men and women.

Scooby Doo Mystery Machine T-shirt for men
Scooby-Doo T-shirts

This retro Hanna Barbera cartoon featured the goofy character Scooby-Doo with his gang driving around in the mystery machine van to solve, erm, mysteries!
Sesame Street T-shirts

An incredible 4385 episodes of the American kid's puppet show produced and is still going strong! You may remember Oscar the grouch who lived in a trash can and was actually orange in the first season before turning green!
SuperTed Cartoon T-Shirts

This was a Welsh 80s cartoon (very different to the more gentile Ivor The Engine, though) that originally ran from 1983 until 1985 on S4C and then BBC1.
The animated series followed the adventures of a superhero teddy bear and his bumbling friend Spotty.

The Trap Door T-Shirts

Okay, so this wasn't actually a cartoon, but an animated series featuring clay models. Each story followed the adventures of a group of monsters who lived in a castle. 40 episodes were created and each one lasted for five minutes. You may also remember the voices for the characters which were provided by Willie Rushton, and it just wouldn't have been the same without him!  The Trap Door is now considered a cult classic.

Thundercats T-Shirts

So, what were Thundercats exactly? I can only describe them as part human, part cat aliens. Originally a Japanese animation, the cartoon was adapted for an American audience and originally aired from 1985 to 1989. A comic book by Marvel was also produced.

Transformers 80s Cartoon T=shirt
Transformers Cartoon T-Shirts

There are actually dozens of designs available with a Transformers theme, and the one shown is a cybertron contrast design. The first toys started to appear around 1984 with the TV series and movie quickly following. TV ads for the transformer toys (I can still remember the "robots in disguise" song in the ad) were regularly shown during the 1980s.

Um Bongo Fruit Drink Hippo T-shirts

"Um Bongo, Um Bongo, they drink it in the Congo!" Yes, if you're of a certain age then you will remember the Um Bongo TV adverts that were a regular feature on our TV screens back in the 1980s. Two tees are availabale featuring the classic logo.
