    Shirt Tales are back!

    This is probably another one of those things that only I remember or care about. That said, they look really nice! I had no idea these were coming back.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    I think you are thinking of Get Along Gang.

    Yes, there was a cartoon. I was never into it as much as Strawberry Shortcake but I do think it's super cool another 80s property is coming back.

    I sort of remember it, I was 11 at the time so I was more interested in what Spider-Man and his amazing friends were up to,

    The first season of Shirt Tales was the best.



    Kind of jumped the shark with season 2 when they added the annoying baby kangaroo. She was the Scrappy doo of Shirt Tales.

    I watched the cartoon. The only merchandise I remember was some small stuffed animals that were part of kids' meals from Hardees. Since my dad is a huge Humphrey Bogart fan, I saved him the Bogey one when we got rid of the others (which was 25 years ago).

    I remember Shirt Tales, but it is hard for me to imagine this property holds much nostalgia. I can totally see getting it confused with the Get Along Gang (or the Monchhichis)... it seems pretty forgettable compared to something like Care Bears or Strawberry Shortcake. But apparently back in July of 2016 they released an exclusive set of Shirt Tales Itty Bittys that sold out in 2 days, so maybe it has a bigger following than I imagine.

    I was looking at the credits for the Saturday Morning Cartoon and saw that Nancy Cartwright was part of the voice cast. That made me remember that when "The Simpsons" came along I recognized her voice (as Bart) from her work on Saturday Morning 'Toons of the past.
