TV Shows - Pac-Man

Pac-Man, also known as Pac-Man: The Animated Series, is an animated TV series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and based upon the popular Pac-Man arcade game by Namco, which aired on ABC from September 25, 1982 to September 1, 1984. Pac-Man follows the adventures of the title character Pac-Man (voiced by Marty Ingels), his wife Mrs. Pepper Pac-Man (voiced by Barbara Minkus), and their child Pac-Baby (voiced by Russi Taylor). They also had two pets, Chomp-Chomp the Dog (voiced by Frank Welker) & Sour Puss the Cat (voiced by Peter Cullen). The family lives in Pac-Land, a place in which the geography and architecture seem to revolve primarily around spheres and sphere-like shapes. Most episodes of the series center around the ongoing battle between the Pac family and their only known enemies, the Ghost Monsters: Blinky (Chuck McCann), Pinky (Chuck McCann), Inky (Barry Gordon), Clyde (Neil Ross), and Sue (Susan Silo). They work for Mezmaron (Allan Lurie), a mysterious figure bearing a likeness to Darth Vader, whose sole mission is to locate and control the source of "Power Pellets", which serve as the primary food and power source for the city, and also as the deus ex machina in virtually every episode.

1 When in appeared in 1982 I read an article that Hanna-Barbera Prods. had to change for anti-adveretising AND LEGALITY issues, by, in both cases, TOTALLY redesining the character, if not the whole layout!! -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on December 17, 2018, 8:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Boned just by being a toy derivative (Marty Ingels as the star notwithstanding. He rocks) -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on December 17, 2018, 8:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Of all the settings they could have, why school? School is one of the most boring settings when it comes to shows or movies. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 23, 2010, 6:20 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Travoltron, that is messed up! At least HB was smart enough to know the four (plus Sue) ghosts were his enemies, even though they got the personalities wrong. But yeah, a HIGH SCHOOLER? Like we don't have enough shows about high school giving a generation of pre-teens a false view of their future? I guess it's officially time to lose hope for the entertainment business. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on June 22, 2010, 5:10 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I think I may have to change my vote to "Never Boned". Avi Arad is planning on making a new Pac-Man cartoon and it sounds terrible. Pac-Man will now be a hip high-school dude and the four ghosts will be his _friends_. http://tv.ign.com/articles/109/1099961p1.html -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 22, 2010, 1:19 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I never saw this one but would someone tell me why his wife (in the arcade game at least) was called 'Ms. PacMan' instead of just PacWoman? As for the game itself? OK but not as fun as Space Invaders or my personal fave Qix(reminded me of medieval conquests for some reason and I liked the sound effects)! Yeah, it's been awhile since I was into this stuff. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 5:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 The sad thing is, it was such a simple game and yet they couldn't get the details right. Ghosts turning purple when a power pellet is eaten instead of turning blue, Sue being colored blue when she should be orange. Was Hanna-Barbera color blind? And the character designs sucked; why did everybody have to be wearing 1920s style hats? BTW, there was a Baby Pac-Man arcade game, but it was obscure and prone to breakdowns; few have survived to this day. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 14, 2009, 5:11 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Agreed. The cartoon was a day one boning. Like you said, Marcus, you can't make a cartoon out of an arcade game like this. The other reason is that it changed the storyline of the arcade game. I know some people may be thinking, "What do you mean, it changed the storyline? All he's doing is eating pellets and avoiding ghosts in the arcade!" But that's just it. He's eating Pellets. He's avoiding the ghosts. There is no darth vader-looking guy ruling over the ghosts. There is no Pac-baby, and there are no Pac-pets (or whatever they're called). It's hard to get cartoons based on video games right, even if the storyline of the game can fit within a cartoon series. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 11, 2009, 2:53 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 You can't make a hit cartoon series of something that's supposed to be an arcade game only. However, the guys behind some of the Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons and the Super Mario Bros. Super Show did a pretty good job. Nevertheless, Pac-Man is great as an arcade/video game only, 'cause it simply can't work as an animated series. -- Submitted By: (Marcus) on May 8, 2009, 7:49 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
