10 Cartoons We Grew Up Watching That Were Actually *Gasp* Reboots

- Page 1

While it's easy to get frustrated with all the shows we loved from the 80s and 90s that are getting boring, unoriginal reboots these days, it's important to remember that this phenomenon is nothing new. Studios have been trying to make lightning strike twice for decades, and in the case of these 10 shows, we sometimes remember them just as much as the originals.

The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest

This blast from the past was an attempt to modernize the franchise (and make it less glaringly racist than the original). Some people really loved it, but ultimately it only lasted two seasons.

Yo Yogi!

Fun fact: this cartoon tanking as hard is it did is the reason that Saturday morning cartoons stopped being a thing. Really.

Tiny Toon Adventures

Probably the best of the "Old cartoons, but kid-sized" reboots, Tiny Toon Adventures was amazing even without being related to Looney Tunes, and we still miss it today.

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.
