Storyline

An early example in a wave of cartoons based on products, this show derived it's characters and basic story from the wildly popular video game of the same name. Each episode followed the same basic plot, with little variation: Pac-Man and his family would be menaced by the ghosts until, just when things were looking grim, one of the Pac-family would chomp some power pills and save the day.

I Saw This Cartoon For The First Time In 20 Years!
8 February 2003 | by (Portsmouth, Virginia) – See all my reviews

It has been great seeing Pac Man on television for the first time in 20 years! It brought back memories of my childhood! This was one of the best cartoons of 1982. And I think it was cool how they based a video game on the cartoon. I got through the first world before they permanently took the game out of the dorm. I loved Chomp Chomp and Sour Puss.
