Aw man, my brother LOVES this cartoon!  Just a couple of years ago he downloaded the whole one season it had!  I wish they'd done more.  We never got to see them collect all 13 crystals.

The thing is, I'd luv for them to re-make it, but I've been wary of 80s cartoon remakes because of several duds that appeared a while back.  My brother's had his eyes and ears open to any such cartoons, and 2 have arisen and not done so well.  First was the remake of Thundercats, and it wasn't too bad, but they quit making them after like, 5 episodes.  Then they re-did Voltron recently, but the new theme has horrible rap music, and it didn't look very appealing. 

What would really be cool is a live-action version of Pirates of Dark Water done as a movie, but with the same spirit as the cartoon.  Or maybe a live-action tv show.

yea i know what you mean, remakes of classics can be very hit & miss. one of the better remakes that comes to mind was the 2002 he-man & the masters of the universe series. i think it worked because they kept the characters true to their original 80's designs to the point were they were updated but were still recognisable to their 80's versions. i also liked the fact that the series had very well thought out stories & went into each characters background a lot better so we could find out more about their history etc.

another more recent update or more of a continuation was the new episodes of mysterious cities of gold. i really liked the new ones because they kept very true to the style of the classic series, it just fitted in with it perfectly. if they treated pirates of darkwater in the way that series was treated i would be very happy.

i know there have been some good live action versions of classics but they unfortunately are few & far between. i think the most recent one & also one of the worst (in regards to keeping true to the original cartoon) is the new jem & the holograms live action movie. i have not seen the actual movie myself but i have seen the trailer & fans comments & so far i have not seen any positive feedback on it as it really did not respect the the cartoon in the way the fans would have liked, which is a real shame as the movie could have had so much potential :(

I used to watch Pirates Of Dark Water when I was a kid. I also used to have some of the action figures as well. I like it!! That show sure brought back some really good memories from my youth!

I agree with you on that one. Unfortunately, I never got the chance to see the rest of the episodes, even though I saw the pilot episode, along with a few others.

I've been talking with some fellow classmates at my AI about how they need to let some animators that loved it as kids breath life back into the series. <T_T> I just miss Iahz always saying, "Junga-lunga" or atleast thats how I remember it >_>

I've been on a nostalgia kick and started watching this series again. The idea popped into my head to draw some of the characters. I'm glad I'm not alone! Pirates of Dark Water is woefully under-represented on this site!

I heard they finished the series but it never aired in the US, because it was to intense.
Not sure if that's true or not though.

Great work on the art my friend, love it. :clap:

I love this picture! Ren, son of Primus. The hero with a broken sword :P

But seriously, great pics all of them. I always had a soft spot for this show when I was younger. Probably because it felt like the show took place inside of some, strange, undocumented Dungeons & Dragons setting.
