I’m reminiscing my childhood by going back to watch old cartoons from time to time. It’s kind of nice to see something that’s familiar. And I hate to sound old, but they just don’t make cartoons like they used to. One such example is The Pirates of Dark Water, which I just watched the first episode of a few days ago. I’m planning to watch the rest later on, it’s just such a shame that it was cancelled and never finished.
It was nice watching it again, and I was really surprised about how everything just came back to me just from watching the intro… sigh…
The Pirates of Dark Water is a fantasy animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera in the early 1990s. Using a detailed, realistic form of animation, it followed a group of adventurers on a quest to collect the Thirteen Treasures of Rule, which possessed the combined power to stop from an evil substance known as “Dark Water” from consuming the alien world of Mer.
Due to expensive production costs and failing to meet the airdates, the series was never completed, ending abruptly after 21 episodes with only eight of the thirteen Treasures collected.
