January 2, 2012 at 12:27 am
Yes, I remeber this catoon, here in Mexico we used to watch that shit, in fact, sometimes it was so boring and somethings was interesting, but it brings great memories of childhoud and it doesn’t compares with the movie. HAPPY NEW YEAR JAMES Y MIKE, GREETINGS FROM MEXICO!!!

@FernandoHernandez mr. obvious
January 2, 2012 at 12:43 am
Wow, I never thought i would be happy that I watched this Series in German. I never noticed voice differences, because we dub everything and for us it was all done by the same Voiceactor.
January 2, 2012 at 12:49 am
Man this show is such a colossal mess
You dont know what a melvin is? Come on mothergrabbin mike…
January 2, 2012 at 12:50 am
January 2, 2012 at 12:51 am
Mike, you’re pointing out plotholes in a cartoon that happens to be based on a movie where people slowly fade away from a photo simultanously set to when someone alters history so that they’re not born. Do I need to point out what is wrong with this?
January 2, 2012 at 12:58 am
Damn it, Mike. Even motherfuckers should spend a little time on research before reviewing something.
A “melvin” is a frontal wedgie. He’s saying people would always give him an aluminum wedgie from the front. Not a boner.
The kids are saying “because his brain’s on Venus”. It seemed pretty clear to me.
None of the examples you gave actually break the fourth wall. In order to do that, the characters would have to admit they’re cartoon characters, or speak directly to the audience.
January 2, 2012 at 2:22 am
@ClevelandRock I know a melvin is a wedgie, and I know the kids are probably saying Venus. It just sounds like it could be “penis” the way they’re saying it. It’s just a joke.
As for the fourth wall, the characters are making fun of the fact they are always meet another Biff or Marty in another century as though they’re aware they’re in strongly contrived show. If they know they’re in a show, then it’s breaking the fourth wall. That’s how I saw it anyhow.
January 2, 2012 at 12:31 pm
@MotherFucker Mike@ClevelandRock Was it supposed to be a joke when you said you played it several times and still heard penis? It’s just that at that point, it kind of tipped over the scale and became kind of…contrived.
January 2, 2012 at 12:59 am
January 2, 2012 at 1:01 am
lol at that ending man. good shit mike.
January 2, 2012 at 1:04 am
The deal with knowing what electricity is possible to explain it with some info from the movie, since in the movie people slowly fade away from a photo simultanously when someone alters history, so it could be said that changes are do not happen right away, that is how Marty may have the idea of electricity. By the way, I remember watching this cartoon as a kid here in my country.
Greetings From Costa Rica.
January 2, 2012 at 1:06 am
Bill Nye the Science Guy! Man, you shoulda just watched that instead.
January 2, 2012 at 1:07 am
i dont think it´s a mistake for marty to continue reacting as he does whenever someone calls him a chicken. i mean, it´s entertaining industry, this animated series doesnt have to be 100% loyal to the movies.franklin didnt create electricity!i love the movies though.
I was about to go to bed. Then i took cinemassacer to the face.
haha never even heard of the animated series.
loved this cartoon!
lol It’s not Monday yet, Mike!
Like everything in the ’80s, stooopid
What kind of black magic fuckery is this?
there was an animated series???
sadly there was ,along with ace ventura,the mask, and bill n ted
because his brain’s a penis XD
way to long imo.
I remember watching that cartoon back in the day. I don’t remember any episodes though. I completely forgot about Christopher Lloyd’s little scenes. I wish they’d release this and the Bill & Ted’s cartoons on DVD.
Did everything get an animated series in the ’80s, cause that seems to be the case.
I loved this show as a kid. All these errors and such are obvious now but as a kid you don’t tend to over think anything. Just just want to see some action and fart jokes.
It seemed this was a heavy “edutainment” time, with shows like Captain Planet and Widget the World Watcher being out around the same time all having facts intergrated into the show. Which I remember I hated.
Bill Nye the science guy was awesome and I remember trying as many of these as I could as well as the ones he taught on his show.
I imagine when James is 65 he will be telling his grand children about the rage he had with the back to the future and hyde games in a very long tale like it was a war fought in a long away place called the land of nintendo.
@Angry Video Game Nerd i watch all your videos and i love them all so your #1 and keep up the good work
It’s on Cinemassacre so I refuse to watch it.
Never watched the animated series.
revue the bill and ted cartoon!
Ah yeah I remember watching this a couple of times. It was…OK.
I loved that cartoon. Especially the Ancient Greece episode. I also tried that same hot air balloon trick with similar results. I think I used a grocery bag…
January 2, 2012 at 1:08 am
Motherfuckin’ Monday woot! MotherFucker Mike cracks me up.

January 2, 2012 at 1:23 am
I guess for every Batman, there’s got to be a Robin. Hurry up with that AVGNM script guys!
January 2, 2012 at 1:29 am
i think mike is right when he talks about the chicken, and almanac part, but i think he put way to much time into criticizing things
January 2, 2012 at 2:11 am
@CesarSanchez Thats kinda the point of the video, and why we watch these videos
January 2, 2012 at 1:42 am
@clark stop watching his videos then, i quite enjoy them myself.
January 2, 2012 at 1:48 am
@I Jam Legend i didnt know it was him
January 2, 2012 at 1:43 am
I want to hear your opinions on the Telltale game Back to the Future. Keep up the good work Mike, this was hilarious.
January 2, 2012 at 2:00 am
Good its just a cartoon dont be such an ass mike
January 2, 2012 at 2:04 am
Talk about pathetic…nothing more entertaining then grown man children getting upset at plot holes for a television show targeted to kids. I mean seriously guys, I agree, the voice actors who happened to be the real live action movie actors should have spoken up about the contradictions in relation to the movies. I sure hope someone got fired for that one!
January 2, 2012 at 2:12 am
@jimjones If you think it’s ‘pathetic’ that James does, then why the hell are you on this site? They talk about dvd – menus that suck, movies that suck, board games that suck, games that suck…..
January 2, 2012 at 2:32 am
@jimjones “nothing more entertaining then grown man”? Apparently, you should be more worried about your “pathetic” excuse for English. Correction: “Nothing more entertaining than grown men”. Before insulting the creators of Cinemassacre, please learn proper English and have relevant accomplishments (such as owning a website). Every Human being is entitled to their own opinions, but you did not have to offend Mike and James, primitive filth.
Quality video, mate. Highly entertaining. Very, very clever. Giving James a run for his money here. Keep it up, mate—you just earned yourself a lifelong fan.
January 2, 2012 at 2:19 am
BTTF was my favorite thing as a kid but I never got the chance to watch that show, now I see how hit-and-miss it looks! I’ll give a try and I’m sure that I’ll end up analyzing it to death like the BTTF geek that I am, even the Telltale game got that treatment!
Thanks for the review Mike!
January 2, 2012 at 2:20 am
I remember this cartoon! As well as Bill and Ted’s cartoon. I think they both came on back to back from what I remember.
January 2, 2012 at 2:25 am
LOL Sounds Like Homer When he Say Doh
January 2, 2012 at 2:29 am
This series may hold a place in the BTTF canon-line, like how Doc got the Delorean back in the Telltale game, he built another one, why of course!
January 2, 2012 at 3:20 am
@AndreanneAndiDion If you’ve played the game you know that the Delorean was a temporal duplicate made at the exact same time that the Delorean got struck by lightning. While the original was sent to 1885 the duplicate was sent to 2025. Doc traced the temporal distortion created by that Delorean, retrieved it with the Time train, fixed it, and improved upon it putting an automatic return on it for just such an emergency that happens at the beginning of the Telltale game.
January 2, 2012 at 5:26 am
I’ll have to get back to that, thanks! But for now, I’ll go to bed!
January 2, 2012 at 2:30 am

I Burst Laughing When the Bullies Said his Brain’s a penis
January 2, 2012 at 2:42 am
Mike Matei did a fantastic job here. Content-wise, this is one of the best videos yet, regardless of host. Such an excellent variety. I usually feel that Mike relies too much on his script, which is a shame because he is great in every one of the unscripted videos he’s in. While that overreliance was still the case here, the scripting and organization were top notch. The video had a very natural flow, which isn’t exactly common. VERY well done.
January 2, 2012 at 2:47 am
Mike, your videos are awesome! Thank you for pouring your wise-ass heart into this video gold.
January 2, 2012 at 2:51 am
Oh wow! This is already here. In my time zone it is still Sunday right now. Nice video though.
January 2, 2012 at 2:56 am
you are looking into the future. greeting from monday earthlings!
LOL I like how he does an in-depth reality check of this dumb cartoon
January 2, 2012 at 2:58 am
Awesome Motherfucking Monday
January 2, 2012 at 2:59 am
Oh my god I love the gory cartoon violence at the beginning, it made my night.
January 2, 2012 at 3:01 am
Mike, I love ya but I just can’t agree with this review as a whole. I’m not gonna hold it against you but I feel like questioning the logic of an 80s cartoon just seems pointless. I’m sure you’ve got plenty of great reviews ahead of you but I’m not gonna consider this one of them.
January 2, 2012 at 3:31 am
@hayamo fuck off idiot
January 2, 2012 at 3:34 am
@loltroll@hayamo GENIUS! When somebody gives a well explained reason to why they did not like a certain video, reply with, “Fuck off idiot.” Poetry.
January 2, 2012 at 4:05 am
@Border Hopper Jay@loltroll@hayamo I wouldn’t put too much thought into a comment posted by someone called “loltroll”.
January 2, 2012 at 3:13 am
maybe brain’s on venus?
January 2, 2012 at 3:25 am
Takes me back! Two other shows I’d love to see a bit on: Captain Planet and Dino Riders. What’s more awesome than lasers on dinosaurs?
January 2, 2012 at 3:44 am
@intri 2 words. Nostalgia Critic
January 2, 2012 at 3:41 am
Mike… I love ya and all, but stay in your element.
January 2, 2012 at 3:54 am
What does that even mean? @ZachChappelear
January 2, 2012 at 3:46 am
Just give me a BTTF Part 4! If only that was possible……..GREAT SCOTT! It is. If i just go back and tell the producers to…..damn! Im out of plutonium…. =(
I think I remember watching 1 or 2 episodes when I was a kid.
As a kid I loved this show. Now that I’m watching it as an adult I see that it’s really ridiculous. I guess it is just mindless, childish humor.
heh i sorta like these epidsode:)
I must watch this series, IT IS TIME! Kinda like the ‘Nightmare On Elm Street’ tv series, it’s not as good as the movies but when you’re a fan, you have no choice!
fuckin bunch of losers
Oh yeah clasic but dont forget about robocop, karate kid, rambo, and cops the animated series…good times good times
I remember when this aired on TV. Funny you didn’t bring up the future space episodes and how absurd that reality would be… and who’d be named “Ziff”? I do agree that the PeeWee episode does ignore a fundamental moral from the BTTF movies and I felt that way at the time too but I feel there is far more that could’ve been commented on or analyzed as a best/worst episode for those reasons. Don’t you think even going into the Cretaceous/Jurassic era even for a moment would cause untold damage to evolution on this world? And the power going out episode, You need to do more research on quantum mechanics and timestream mechanics and impacts. The further back in time you go, no matter how small the change, it can be far more devastating a thousand years ago than a major change 30 years go. Jeez, and you call yourselves nerds…
Wow!… It’s been ages since I’ve seen this Cartoon. It wasn’t all that good but having Doc Brown show up to do little experiments at the end was pretty cool.
motherfuking monday ooh yeh!
yeah right and im michael j fox
I use to watch the cartoon series when it was on, and I agree the show did centered around Doc’s kids and wife and not much with Marty.
January 2, 2012 at 3:50 am
one way or another but this site keeps making me go back to the past which is a good thing
The Boston Beaneaters existed from 1883 to 1906. While it’s true that there is a team known as the Orioles now, and they’re in the same league as the current Boston team, they only coexisted from 1902 – 1906, and during that time the Orioles were actually the St. Louis Browns. However, there *was* an American Association team called the Orioles from 1882-1899, located in Baltimore. From 1892 – 1899, they were in the National League… just like the Boston Beaneaters (now the Atlanta Braves) were.
So… did the cartoon get it right by picking an old Boston team that was in the NL, and showed them playing a game against another AA or NL team, the Orioles? Or did they get it wrong, choosing a current American League team (the current Baltimore Orioles, formerly the St. Louis Browns) to play against the Boston team, which is now in the American league?
Either they got it right, or they got it wrong but by an amazing coincidence it looked right. The world may never know.
January 2, 2012 at 4:10 am
Then there was Teen Wolf the cartoon
January 2, 2012 at 5:13 am
@JimMcwilliams I remember liking that one!

January 2, 2012 at 4:26 am
loved this video, keep doing more vids mike
I caught a few episodes of this cartoon, not the best but ok I suppose. And yep, 80′s/90′s cartoons tried to be educational although they’d just have a morality tale at the end.
January 2, 2012 at 4:34 am
January 2, 2012 at 5:01 am
melvin means to get or give a wedgie. Only reason i know this is from Bill and Teds Excellent adventure. They give a “Melvin” to death. So no the pants do not give the doc a boner, they give him a wedgie.
January 2, 2012 at 5:30 am
@Cole_Patrick It was Bill and Ted’s bogus journey, not excellent adventure.
January 2, 2012 at 6:53 am
@Cole_Patrick Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey. I had to correct that, didn’t I.
January 2, 2012 at 12:23 pm
It’s from Bogus Journey kid @Cole_Patrick
Ben Franklin didn’t “create electricity!”
