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.

On the Contrary...
15 June 2005 | by jettbrando7See all my reviews

I am going to beg to differ with the comment already posted on here, which basically lambastes the Pac-Man cartoon. I was in 3rd grade or something when it came out in 1982 and found that era of Saturday morning cartoons most agreeable. If one is going to attempt to make real sense out of the ridiculous era of early '80s cartoons based on products, then one is really barking up the wrong tree. The aforementioned previous post says that the cartoon goes against things that the video game stood for. WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK PAC-MAN stood for??? It was just a game! A simple, stupid game. Sure, we had loads of fun with it at the time, and I too played it every chance I had, whether it was in an actual arcade, at home on Atari 2600, or the table top version at a cocktail lounge. I, too was psyched that they were going to make a cartoon out of it, but I loved it. Of course, it doesn't make any sense! I was lucky enough to have already been raised on the older films of Laurel & Hardy, James Cagney, and many others. I therefore got a lot of the references that were admittedly over the heads of most little kids. Things like Clyde's derby hat as a symbol of this representing classic 1930's Thugdom. And Sue's make-up and voice hinting at saucy Dame-ness of that same era. Yes, Pac-Man's voice was ridiculous, but like i said, this whole era and culture was completely retarded and based on junk: junk games to numb you, junk cereal based on junk games, and last but not least junk cartoons to go with junk cereal based on junk games to numb you. I feel sorry for anyone who really felt a sense of true loss over the show. The Pac-Man character of the video game is featureless, with no personality, much like most game characters of that era. Personalities had to be created in order to make the show possible. Could it have been better? of course. of that there is no doubt. i have no idea why Mezmeron was created, aside from the fact that Star Wars was in it's heydey back then. He clearly resembles Lord Vader in the lamest way. he looks like a gay Lex Luther in drag, pretending to be the Fallen Anakin. I truly would go out and buy the series were it available on DVD. My favorite episode was the one with the OK Corral and the Beanstalk.

NOW, as far as the Dragon's Lair cartoon is concerned, THAT is another story.
