Wish I'd bought the Milk 'n' Cheese T-shirt that DEADLINE put out:

M: "Gin makes a man MEAN!"

C: "Everyone booze up and RIOT!"

Ah, happy, happy days. I really miss DEADLINE :(

wasn't 'I needed that' from Frankie in the groovy ghoulies?

THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT!

(On reflection, it's possible that GROOVY GHOULIES was a UK retitle of DRAK PACK)

A quick google suggests that they were seperate entities (GG from the 70's, DP 80's).

However I don't conciously remember the former, but do the latter.  I thought the quote was Frankie...

I may be wrong

Yes, they were quite different. Groovy Ghoulies was a 'Laugh-in' format cartoon sketch show with musical numbers (e.g Frankie as 'Super Ghoul, he looks so cool, in his yellow cape and a polkadot vest...'), set in a very crowded haunted castle.

Drac Pack was a cartoon adventure series in which a team of hero monsters battled a team of villain monsters intent on taking over the world or just getting up to general badness.

Both of them were eminently watchable.
STRIKE !!!

Anyone else see the ad for this in the newest meg?

Transformers is old news, but I didn't know this was coming out!
