    You did a great job condensing all that into one show – the games, cartoons, Larry's career, He-Man, Transformers, the Amiga of course. '80s kids like me will really love this one. I've not checked out your photo yet, John. Can't wait for that. 😀

    Did you try last year's fan remake?

    I've never heard of Count Chocula in the UK, except for its connection to Larry… then I haven't eaten cereal of any kind for years.

    Interesting bit of trivia for you – he used to buy the cereal from the supermarket so he could flatten and sign the boxes to send to fans. That is until he mentioned it to his contact at General Mills who told him they'd be happy to give him however many of the flat-packed boxes he needed for free.

    It says a lot about the kind of guy he is I think. Brilliant story.

    Thunder, thunder, thunder cats – ho!
    Loved the thunder cats as a kid, though the game does rival transformers on the spectrum for the crappest cartoon tie in
