For some reason I felt like trying to search - again - for an old show I remember from the 80's on Nickelodeon. Amazingly, I was successful this time; it was called Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea! The odd part is that I don't remember any of the main characters, just two "comic relief" characters called Bic and Bac. It was on early - like 6am - and I didn't see it often. Heck, I didn't even know what the plot was. But after I found the Spartakus page, some of the plot points sounded familiar to me. Finding some screen captures here (which was linked from the first page) showing Bic & Bac confirmed it.
Current Mood: excited
Hey I remember that show. Damn that stuff was crazy. Ever watch Belle & Sebastian, or The Little Prince?

Can't say that I remember them, but where I grew up Nickelodeon was a "split-time" channel - Nick during weekdays, and ESPN at all other times IIRC. So there wasn't that much on Nick that I got to see. Spartakus, for some reason, has always been stuck in my head because it seemed much more science-fiction than any other cartoon I remember from my youth.
this is a site that has crap loads of stuff on Spartakus and The Sun beneath the sea-which under its original name was Les Mondes Engloutis- or The Absorbed Worlds-
This site actually has a full syn. of the entire show-
"Ever since the time of the Great Cataclysm, the Arkadians have lived deep in the center of the earth. They believed they were the only survivors of this great devastation. Their civilization thrived under the power of their sun, the Tehra... until it began to fail. In desperation, the children of Arkadia broke the law and entered the forbidden Archives searching for a solution. What they discovered gave them hope. Anxiously, they used their special powers and created a messenger to the people above. They named her Arkana..."
Hope this helps =)
Great Big Spartakus Fan!
