    Link [RPG] Herculoids: The AD&D Files

    Since many here are into RPGs and perhaps some classic cartoons, I thought I would mention this side project I've been working on. A couple of the guys over at the Dragonsfoot boards have been stating the various characters and creatures from the Herculoids cartoon series from Hanna-Barbera. I basically take their work and turn them into PDFs and created a website to host the work, so I'm proud to present...

    Somewhere out in space live The Herculoids...Zok the laser-ray dragon! Igoo the giant rock ape! Tundro the tremendous! Gloop and Gleep, the formless fearless wonders! With Zandor their leader, and his wife, Tara, and son, Dorno, they team up to protect their planet from sinister invaders! All-strong! All-brave! All-heroes !! They are The Herculoids !!!
    The Herculoids: The AD&D Files

    The write-ups use 1st & 2nd Edition AD&D (sorry to the 4e crowd - no plans for any 4e conversions). Think of it as retro gaming meets retro cartoons.
    Cheers,

    I'm a sucker for a lot of the old Hanna-Babera cartoons (with a few exceptions). Herculoids, Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, Galaxy Trio, Dino Boy, Josie and the Pussycats, Speed Buggy, Wacky Races, and even Scooby Doo (no Scrappy episodes please) - to name a few.

    You can watch Herculoid episodes on fliiby.com. Here is the link to Episode 19 - Temple of Trax.

    Wacky Races is one of my all time favorites too - the only thing better to me than Hanna-Barbera stuff are the classic Looney Tunes.

    Jonny Quest is probably my fave out of the HB cartoons. I have it and Wacky Races on DVD (and Scooby Doo, Space Ghost/Dino Boy, Birdman/Galaxy Trio, Hong Kong Phooey, and so on).

    Alas, in Canada we don't get the Cartoon Network - so no Boomerang for us. We do have our own version called Teletoon and they have a specialty version called 'Teletoon Retro' which shows a bunch of the old cartoons (up to the mid 80s) but not many Hanna-Barbera stuff (other than Scooby Doo, Flintstones and the Jetsons).

    I just wish I could find the old Bugs Bunny stuff.
