Hmmm - Dungeons and Dragons always gets love for being such a great cartoon from my childhood, Thundarr the Barbarian, Space Ghost (before it was a parody of itself), Johnny Quest...

Yeah, I'm old.

Johnny Quest is one that got played on re-runs an awful lot when I was a younger and I loved the shit out of it. Having watched a shit load of it also makes The Venture Brothers all the funnier.

Space Ghost I was... slightly less fond of. Space Ghost Coast to Coast was just such a better use of that license.

So when you say "sucked into the game", do you mean in an Erfworld sort of way, or a .Hack/Sword Art Online sort of way?

More like...um...he's a character in the game, and there are no player-controllers. Yeah, sorry, the "sucked-into-game" metaphor was a bad choice of words. It's kinda like, if an RPG had an autonomous storyline...and was goofy as fuck.

Dungeons and Dragons was really one of the best shows at the time. Its just a shame they never finished it, just one more episode! If they had completed that episode, it would have been a rarity in cartoon series of the time, where there was a definite ending, rather than a return to the status quo and the adventures continues.

When I was a small kid I loved the Care Bears. Don't ask me why, but I did (maybe that's rather something for the confession thread)...growing older I fell in love anime - namely with 'the vision of escaflowne' and 'InuYasha'.

the interesting thing about exosquad, is that the premise is basically the same as battlestar galactia; humanity creates a genetically engineered slave-race, which rebels against them. then, after 50 years of peace the neosapiens launch a surprise attack & conquer the human homeworlds, leaving only a few warships free to try to retake them.

how can you not love a kid's show about post-slavery racism & resentment, which opens up with a 5-parter titled 'The Fall of the Human Empire'?

Oh yeah, I just remembered another one - STARBLAZERS (AKA Space Battleship Yamato)  This was literally my first experience with anime, and I absolutely loved it.  The problem was that where I lived, this was not a regular occurrence, because the local stations only had a few episodes, so I only got to see like the first 4 episodes of the series over and over.  I still have yet to see the entire series, and I will be setting about trying to do that now.

But my little 10 year old mind was blown by this cartoon, and I have loved anime ever since, even though I didn't know it was anime at the time.

Oh I tried watching it, believe me. But at the time it showed, it was on S4C, which was a Welsh/English channel, and because I lived in Ireland, we didn't get the best of signals (It was the kind of set-up where if you looked at the aerial box in a strange way the signal would go). So the rare occasions when I could watch it, the picture was so bad I often wondered if they were in a permanent blizzard (It was also on Saturday mornings which meant I had be to up at the rugby or the football club, so that just really cut down on what I could watch).

when i was a kid, we had some tapes of the old fleischer bros superman shorts, and they were awesome. i think my earliest memories of anything animated come from those tapes.

to this day, whenever i think of superman, this is the music i hear in my brain. anyone else with me on that?

same until WB started up the superman animated series.  Then the JL and JLU shows.  He then killed people in the new JLU movies which surprised the hell out of me and seemed out of character.  Then I remembered that he's not batman as far as killing people.  But I never saw him kill anyone in the old live action show or the animated show in the 90s/2000s.

Cartoon network has a couple of good shows now.  Though the classics like johnny bravo was good and still comes on boomerang.  also PPG are coming back later this year.

technically speaking, a Raven/Starfire hookup wouldn't require any balls at all.

That show "titans go" has started here a few weeks ago, so far at least its far more silly than the original, not much actual heroing.  Seems they've taken the "funny" parts of the original and made a series of that.

Teen Titans GO! is a pale comparison to the old Teen Titans cartoon. It's nice that they have the old voice cast, who seem to have never left, and I do enjoy the art style by the awesome Dan Hipp, but I don't like anything else about it. The comedy is more hit and miss, mostly miss, and it feels like the 11 minute episodes run on for too long. I think it would have been better if they just made New Teen Titans shorts that were on during the DC Nation block.

Agreed, like they tried to distill it down to just the silly.  Problem being that with out a serious (relatively) hero show for contrast, the silly  alone doesn't stand up.

Ah well.  My 8 yo seems to tolerate it.

A nice theory I've heard is that we've been clamoring for new Teen Titans for so long that CN finally relented and made this, then going, "What do you mean you don't like it? It's Teen Titans just like you wanted"
