As a child of the 80s and 90s, I received a good portion of life advice from television shows like Family Matters, Step by Step and The Cosby Show. When flesh and blood actors weren’t available to act as surrogate parents, I relied on the animated advisors on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transformers to make sure I walked a righteous path. So when Lion-O, Lord of the Thundercats whipped out the Sword of Omens and told me to “Obey the code” against underage drinking, who was I to argue? Boy, am I glad they produced this PSA. By the age of 5, I was already up to a case of Natty a day and had developed a taste for illegal moonshine. There’s no telling what type of raging childhood alcoholic I would have become if it weren’t for the Thundercats. Hit the jump to check out the PSA along with a bonus blooper track.
