Cartoons

The place to discuss any and all cartoons (that don't suck). My favorite would have to be Animaniacs, which I have made a group on. And Invader Zim was awesome, which was written by Mystery Science Theater's Frank Conniff (TV's Frank).

  • I absolutely love The Simpsons (yes, even the new ones). The parent of dysfunctional family cartoons (I'm looking at you, Family Guy and American Dad), this series is full of humor, memorable characters, and even good plot, although I'll admit that that part of the show has been going gradually downhill lately.

    3 things that I will never forget: 1) Mr. Burns almost dies. 2) Homer is prescribed medical marijuana. 3) Tomacco.

  • Has ANYONE ever heard of Tenchi? One of the best pieces of Anime ever.

    TenCHI or tenSHI? I've heard, but not seen the first, know LOTS of anime with "Tenshi" in their name (tenshi being japanese for "angel")

  • I love watching "Tom and Jerry" and "Tintin"

  • Ah cartoons, now your speaking my language. Classic cartoons are my obsession, you guys have mentioned most of the last great shows, Animaniacs, Johnny Bravo, Pinky and the Brain, Freakazoid etc

    Others I adore are classic Hanna-Barbera, from Scooby, the Flintstones, the Hair Bear Bunch, the Jetsons etc, classics from the Disney vault deffo need a mention, the Little Mermaid, Basil the Great Mouse Detective, Sleeping Beauty, the Jungle Book, Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland... and Disney's shorts. Then WB's original Looney Toons need a mention, legendary animated characters (must mention one of the greatest cartoon moments in history is the Roger Rabbit scene with Daffy vs. Donald). Of course Batman the animated series is a classic, more grown up show. I also need to rate the Powerpuff Girls and the original Turtles!

  • I'll have to agree with you on Powerpuff Girls. It was a great show to sit down and watch with my younger sister. But for some reason, I used to think Buttercup was a guy...don't ask. Please.

    Didn't Powerpuff Girls use to be on Toonami, like back in 2001/2002?

    I think it was, but I'm not sure.

    thes ones still listed above I remember fondly (I actually had nightmares from a few Batman TAS episodes) The original TMNT was probably my favorite around 8-10 or so, back when it aired on free-broadcast TV. I dont remember if it was mentioned already but the early-90's X-men was also good.

  • Cartoons do educate too, I learnt how to speak squirrelish from Bubbles.

    As for the 90's X-Men, yeah that was good, as was the Spiderman from the same time. I dislike the superhero shows of today, the animation is horrible and too wannabe anime.

    I do have to say the animation was good, but I didn't care for the story, they tried to tie random episodes together and it was very hard to follow since it was an American-non-serial series... maybe if it had been shown in serial it would have made sence, but I kept getting confused because of the seemingly random references to earlier episodes...

    'course when I think back, X-men did that too...

    Semi-serial is an annoying format...
