The Lone Ranger: A fifty year old steampunk cartoon!

Wikipedia says that the term “steampunk” was coined in the 1980s and is “a subgenre of science fiction and sometimes fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.”

So I guess I watched steampunk cartoons in the 1960s: The Lone Ranger! Yeah, you young whippersnappers, I did steampunk before it was even called steampunk! Here’s a couple of goodies: The Iron Giant and The Human Dynamo. The music and the clomping feet of that giant still sound cool.
