    just a few from my recollection of a horrible time:
    LA gear- the shoes that lit up when you walked.
    Transformers- (the good guys) chilled in a mountain in their crashed space ship
    Heathcliff- the cat who had that big hot air balloon
    Gremlines- Gizmo the little fuzzy brown guy, and you couldnt get him wet or feed him after midnight.
