Not forgetting the cartoons Visionaries, Thundercats and He-man
There'd be Electric Company and Rainbow to sing along to with their theme songs
You learnt how important Math was by watching Mathnet
Voltron was lions and then cars based.
My Little Pony was such a girly thing but you could never turn it off or away from it.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looked alot friendlier than they do now.

Smurfs! "Are we there yet, Papa Smurf?"

All the HK-imported 老夫子 comics that were sold at market newspaper stands.

Xiang Yun was our local SBC hottie.

And speaking of hotties...remember the japanese drama serials showcasing super-power tennis and volleyball moves...all the somersaults and short skirts....

And the long running japanese series Ah Xin. I still remember her demure smile...
