I didn’t even know this existed: New Kids on the Block Cartoon

I love discovering new pieces of nostalgia for the first time (does that make sense?), just like this discovery…New Kids on the Block had their own cartoon series. Seriously! The show was of course titled New Kids on the Block and premiered at the height of the bands popularity in 1991 on ABC. Following in the footsteps of shows like Hulk Hogan’s Rock N’ Wrestling and The Super Mario Super Show. This cartoon series featured a mix between cartoon stories and live action segments. The interesting thing (just like Hulk Hogan’s cartoon) is that the voices of the characters were done by actors and not by the band members themselves, apparently due to licensing rights. The show lasted all of one season and it’s not too hard to figure out why.   Advertisements
