80s & 90s Cartoons that Could be Great Blockbuster Movies

We've listed our ten favorite cartoons from the 80s and 90s that could launch great blockbuster movie franchises but there are plenty more that we didn't have chance to include in detail - and we want to highlight two of them.

Honorable Mentions:

Captain Planet - Given the right script and director, Captain Planet could be a campy (albeit fun) take on Superman-like superheroing and environmentalism. Watch the animated intro from Captain Planet - HERE and the entire first episode - HERE

Defenders of the Earth - Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician in one movie! Watch the animated intro from Defenders of the Earth - HERE and the entire first episode - HERE

What cartoons from the 80s and 90s would you like to see turned into blockbuster movies? As mentioned the list is not all-inclusive, so share your picks and reactions in the comments.
