What was your favourite cartoon show as a kid?
« on: 25 Sep 2008, 00:00 »

Post below with your favourite cartoon show as a kid.

By kid, I mean when you were between around 5 and 12. The plan is for your post to really date your childhood.

Mine was Voltron (possibly unsurprising if you recognised my avatar).

Runners-up would be MASK, Transformers (original series) and Brave Starr.

 I was mostly a Nickelodeon child. Rugrats, Doug and such. I also loved Dragonball Z when I was about 10 to 11.

Animaniacs.

A grade school friend's dad did some of the animation on Animaniacs.  Somewhere in my room I have a cel of Wacko.

That said...

Thundercats, G.I. Joe, Pirates of Dark Water, The Tick, Batman: The Animated Series, and X-Men were the major staples of my cartoon watching.

Batman: The Animated Series, X-Men,  Fantastic Four, Scooby Doo, Tom and Jerry, Popeye, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Topcat (actually just a shit load of Hanna-Barbera cartoons), ReBoot, Gargoyles and I'm pretty sure Dragonball Z was my last "childhood" cartoon.

Can't I just say I was ten years old in '98? I watched a hella lot of cartoons. Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network mostly, like, at least 4 hours a day, there were very few shows I didn't like.

I had a series of favorites and it would vary depending on my age. I was big into X-Men, Batman: The Animated Series, Gargoyles, Exo-Squad, Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Rocko's Modern Life and so on.

I think Simpsons might've been tops, though.

THIS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8pkxdBodsg

At least when I was 5-10-ish, probably not when I was 12. At 12 I was way too busy rejecting anything that might be vaguely childish to watch this awesome, awesome show.

I bet Jens will second this when he gets back from work or wherever he is, he even has the theme song as his ringtone.

Pinky and the Brain, Recess, The Weekenders and classic Looney Tunes. I still watch them if the mood strikes me and I'm watching TV at 3 in the afternoon during the week/8 or so in the morning on Saturday (except for Pinky and the Brian which is never on anymore).

...Mostly anything from Looney Tunes.

I grew up hating Disney and their formulaic "good-rights-responsibility-evil-destruction-and-chaos-battle" stories. And their musicals.

And my last "childhood" cartoon was Dragonball Z. I still remember the first theme song for the English dubs! It was so funny! XD

The Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon (the dramatic one that was on on Saturday mornings)

I saw a couple episodes and liked it a lot, and then lost track of it and could never figure out when it was on. Had to substitute the goofy weekday Sonic cartoon instead, but it never filled the hole in my heart.

To this day I cannot feel any emotion that isn't RAGE or DEPRESSION and it's all because of being unable to watch this cartoon.


Epilogue: I watched a couple of episodes that appeared online when tv links websites began to take off. They were not that good. Nostalgia glasses rosy enough to obscure pretty much anything & everything in my field of vision..

Jonny Quest.

Oh man, I remember Johnny Quest. That show was awesome.  Basically, my favorite cartoon changed from year to year, so here's a list of the ones I can remember in no particular order:

Rocket Power
Dragonball Z
Ed, Edd & Eddy
X-Play
Mobile Suit G Gundam

And, uh...I think that's all I can remember as far as TV-shows go.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Ren and Stimpy.

Also loved most other early nicktoons and TMNT.  And the Simpsons but I probably didn't get much of the jokes until I was at least 10.

The tick is the shit, I love that picture.

My favorite cartoon was definitely X-Men, then Spider Man, then probably stuff like tom and jerry, loony toons and stuff like that.  Yeaah 8-)

I wish cartoons didn't suck now.  When I have kids I'm going to get DVDs of all the old cartoons and they'll only be allowed to watch those   :laugh:


Oh and Reboot!!!! That was probably actually my second favorite after X-Men! :D  that show was fucking awesome.

Oh man guys, come on...has no one mentioned Count Duckular?  Also ARGHH!! Real Monsters!  I want both of those on dvd.  There are a whole bunch other people have already said, and I was pretty big into the original Pokemon series.  By pretty big into I mean I CRIED if I missed it.  I have a bunch of episodes still taped on VHS for the days I had to go to school before it was on.

Invariably funny + drama = serious.
If your show is light-hearted and silly, it would be a good idea to remember that's what's great about it. Who here want's to see an episode referred to as "a very special Futurama" where Leela deals with the emotional turmoil of being raped by Lrrr?

Jesus, I think I just /34/'d. :x

Daytime TV when I was growing up was boring.  The best cartoon available was Scooby Doo.  As a kid I watched the movies that were playing, and reruns of MASH, Hogan's Heroes and such classics as the original Battlestar Galactica (I miss Lorne Greene).
