Cute but forgettable cartoon series
24 October 2002 | by app354See all my reviews

"Popples" was one of many syndicated cartoon shows that quickly came and went in the mid-1980s. It was about the misadventures of a bunch of furry creatures who could turn themselves into bouncing balls whenever necessary.

Honestly, I don't remember much else about the show, other than that the popples were in different colors and they each had different personalities (sort of). I do remember owning an orange Popples doll when I was a little kid (I think it was Puzzle Popple, but I'm really not sure). I used to take that doll almost everywhere I went, and since it was very light (and could be folded into a tight ball), it was easy to do so.

In my opinion, the cartoon show was rather ordinary, while the dolls were really fun toys (perhaps one of the most underrated toys to come out of the 1980s).
