Year: 1982

During this time, Pac Man was the most popular video game on the scene. This sparked Hanna Barbara (who brought us The Flintstones, The Jetsons and Scooby Doo) to bring the title to TV. Pac Man looked like your everyday working man and in typical Hanna Barbara style spoke with a thick New York accent. The cartoon didn't have much in common with the actual video game itself but it was the first animated series to feature a video game character.
