You know, I didn't really consider Looney Tunes initially, but man did I effing love those cartoons growing up. I remember there being big blocks of LT's on every evening right before dinner time and I used to watch them to pass the time when I was starting to get hungry and it always seemed to make the time go by faster. I really hope they're being played somewhere for the newer generations of kids growing up, but I seriously doubt they are.

I loved Looney Tunes, but a lot of stuff in there kids just won't understand these days, especially a decade from now. Has a five year old today even seen a rotary telephone and understands what that is?

Also, Chuck Jones will always be > Tex Avery. Tex Avery animated an insane, inane spectacle; Chuck Jones animated peerless art. Yea, I went there.

Page 1 bro, by me. I thought i was the only motherfucker who watched Silverhawks. My brother and I also you use to watch THE DINO-RIDERS vhs we had over and over. Those fucking Tyco commercials are ingrained in my brain forever (And they act like advertising to kids is a new thing, they kept commercials on a purchased vhs knowing that kids would see them over and over). When we tried to explain this show to other kids growing up they would look at us kinda weird. Now it's kinda weird to see it pictured on internet motivational posters...

Tiny Toons always seemed like a dumbed down, retarded version of Looney Tunes, and the same with Muppet Babies. I'd much rather have had more of the original shows than these pretenders to the thrones.

You are underestimating kids. Looney Tunes was old and dated when I watch them and I got enough of the jokes to enjoy them. After all, they originally ran in theaters from 1930 to 1969. I'm pretty sure that was before most of us.

I had this old VHS movie when I was a kid that had these transformer-like vehicles in it...it wasn't Transformers, but I remember it being very similar. They could turn into trucks and one turned into a drill to drill into a rock mountain. I loved that movie and watched it over and over, but I can't for the life of me remember what the hell it was called. It's been killing me for years!

Too true. So many of those shows are absolutely timeless.

The Real Ghostbusters, M.A.S.K, He-Man, Transformers, Thundercats and G.I Joe were the main ones for me.

I think the main reason I liked M.A.S.K so much was because of the cool toys. Hell, now that I look at my list, you could say the same thing about all of those, except maybe The Real Ghostbusters.

I did enjoy me some Smurfs on Saturday mornings, too.

Transformers and He-Man were the bees knees when I was growing up. I'm not really sure which one I enjoyed more when I was 6.

It looks like every cartoon I enjoyed when I was a child has been listed. Back in the late 80's/early 90's Disney could do no wrong with their cartoons. Duck Tales, Chip n Dale, Tailspin, all favorites of mine. M.A.S.K. was great too. I think I still have my bed sheets for that cartoon.

Dragonball Z takes the cake but I was obsessed with all kinds of cartoons. All the old Marvel shows on Fox Kids like Avengers, X-men, Spiderman, think there was a Dr. Strange show too, Incredible Hulk. Anyone remember this show called Diabolik about a super thief? Dude.

MOTHERFUCKIN' GARGOYLES ON DISNEY CHANNEL! Keith David is a god! Also watched Spawn on a UK channel called CNX because of that man's commanding ass voice, man they had all the hardcore anime on that channel too. Not sure if anime is allowed in this but Big O, Outlaw Star, Cowboy Bebop man Gundam Wing, Shinzo (remember that??), Monster Rancher. Dude I feel like I have amnesia, there were so any of them. Beast Wars! Justice League & JL Unlimited, X-men Evolution, weird ass show called Ultimate Muscle :lol: anyone know it? Had THE coolest opening theme! Oh man why do we have to grow up? :(

HEAVY GEAR! Godzilla, Silver Surfer, OH MY GOD Spiderman Unlimited :( that show was never allowed to reach its potential. Batman of the Future, think you guys across the pond called it Batman Beyond, another one never given a good enough run. Medabots, Beyblade, Flint: Time Detective, Iron Man, Jackie Chan Adventures! OH MAN REMEMBER RAVE MASTER? DAMN I MISS THAT SHOW! Pokemon (obviously), Shaman King, Sonic X. Static Shock, Star Wars: Clone Wars, that was the animated series aka the better version. They were only 5 minute shorts but was dark as hell, fanboys would enjoy those.

Teen Titans, Yu-Gi-Oh, motherfuckin' ZOIDS!

So much more that I just can't remember, sadly.

Had to look some stuff up there, didn't even remember half of those ones. What I'd give to be 12 again, damn :(

I remember catching Peanuts on at prime time when I was a kid and thinking I struck gold. A cartoon at night?!? Hell yes!

Other than that, the usual 80's stuff:
Thundercats
Voltron (I have the metal set somewhere at my parent's place. The heavy one from Japan. Luckily growing up in Sacramento, there was this place that imported Japanese toys called Shadow Warrior that always carried items that no other place had. They also sold real weapons which I got into later in life.)
He-Man (I have Castle Grayskull in my parents garage with a bunch of the action figures)
Transformers (I also have a bunch of the metal ones somewhere)
G.I. Joe (I had a deal with my brother where he was allowed to get the Cobra figures and I was allowed to get the G.I. Joe figures. He sold all of them because he "grew out of them." A-Hole.)
Rescue Rangers
Duck Tales
Muppet Babies
Smurfs
Popeye (I don't know why, but I was fixated on him for months hardcore, then I lost interest.)
Fraggle Rock (Even I knew it was weird when I was a kid.)
M.A.S.K. (Again, I had a bunch of the toys which I would use to set up epic battles on my desk which I never used for homework.)

... I watched a lot of TV now that I think about. Talk about a wasted youth.

Anyone remember C.O.P.S.? I distinctly remember some evil skank kissing one of the protagonists and poisoning him with her lipstick! Ingenious!

I recall thinking Space Sentinels was fantastic. I recently tracked down the DVDs and was surprised to see there was only a dozen episodes.

Christ, I feel old when Dragon Ball Z is mentioned as a favorite childhood show. I was watching that shit in college. As in, it hadn't become mainstream yet and I was watching it on bootleg VHS cassettes with fan subtitles that were off by five seconds. :lol:
