Ah, that lovely nostalgia for all things 80s and 90s! Few cater to this better than Spectrum Games and their wonderful Cartoon Action Hour series of products. This is one of their most ambitious releases, and it has the power!!!

The book celebrates the 15th anniversary of this fictitious cartoon series/toy line, offering details about all six seasons.

About Cartoon Action Hour: Season 3
Cartoon Action Hour: Season 3 is the third edition of the game that was nominated for “Best RPG” at the 2004 Origins Awards. The game faithfully and meticulously emulates the action-adventure cartoons of the 1980s, using “cartoon logic” as the basis for every aspect of the system. This is not just a universal game that just happens to be adorned with genre-appropriate art. Every single design decision was made with the purpose of bringing to life the retro-toons of yesteryear, right at your gaming table.<o:p></o:p>
