In this blog entry I'll be writing a little about a certain cartoon series that was airing on a local channel in my area when I was a kid. I'm a child of the '80s, pretty much, as I've written about in other blog entries. By the time I was old enough to really comprehend and remember the programs on television, in my younger days, it had to have been 1982/1983 at the earliest when I was around 6 and 7 years old. One of the cartoons I recall seeing is Groovie Goolies, which is a horror-based cartoon series closely associated with the children of the '70s who saw the reruns on Saturday morning TV. My oldest sister is who found the Groovie Goolies and so that's how, in the early 1980's, I was exposed to the cartoon series. I wasn't attentive enough to fully understand the cartoon other than it's look and the catchphrase uttered by the Frankie character. That phrase was often repeated by my father many, many times after he'd have an accident while working on something outside or inside the house. The phrase, "I needed that", said in a slow Karloff inspired voice, was the thing that stuck with me about this cartoon as the decades went by.
I purchased this DVD in late 2006 when it was brand new and have often re-watched the cartoons around Halloween season. The project features all 16 episodes from the Groovie Goolies series on 3 discs.
