Oh my god, I can't believe I still remember this cartoon!

The Karate Kid (1989) was a cheesy saturday morning cartoon that

debuted on N.B.C. The cartoon was real hokey and I didn't stick with it (the phony voices had something to do with it). The plots made part three

look innovative. Man, I thought I was dreaming that this show ever existed

until I saw it on this site. I knew I wasn't hallucinating! Like most 80's

nostalgia nothing was worth remembering and this series is one of them.

Bad cartoon spun off of a dead in the water franchise. Nothing to

recommend (unless you're a masochist).
