Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Pac-Man

Oh, you sweet cash grab, you.

With quarters being shoved into arcade games in record numbers, Hanna Barbera rode the golden wave, turning Pac-Man into a cartoon superstar.

His show ran for 44 frantic episodes on ABC, giving Saturday mornings an extra zing from 1982-83.

Packaged with The Little Rascals, Richie Rich, and Rubik, the Amazing Cube, Pac-Man was the undisputed king.

His animation style was sharper, his plots more complex (that’s a lie…), and his cartoon has endured better.

Check it out, then tell me it doesn’t leave you hankering for a bowl or two of old-school Body Buddies cereal.
