The Mysterious Cities Of Gold #forgottenFriday #cartoons #vintage
A few weeks ago, we highlighted old cartoons that we forgot about. It got me thinking about different cartoons from when I was kid, and I kept seeing this Golden Eagle in my head. For weeks, I couldn’t figure out what cartoon it was.
Golden Spaceship Aztec… Those were the magic words that found it!
They even had a video game!!
This is what it was about:
The year is 1532. Esteban, a young boy, is told that he was saved by Mendoza, a navigator on a Spanish ship from a ship wreck in a storm at sea. The only clue to his identity is a medal that Esteban wears about his neck. Esteban joins Mendoza on a trip from Spain to the new world – the Americas – where on route he meets two other children – Zia – an Inca girl and Tao, the last member of a highly advanced race. All three are looking for different things – Esteban to find his father and his identity, Zia for her father and Tao for remains of his race. The clues for all three quests however all point to the seven Cities of Gold and so the children, Mendoza, Sancho and Pedro – two other sailors and friends of Mendoza start searching in a massive treasure hunt for the Cities Of Gold…
