View Full Version : Cartoon question
01-25-2008, 05:11 AM
What cartoons did you like when you were a child and do you watch cartoons now? I liked Dexters Lab, Cow and Chicken, I am Weasel, Ed, Edd and Eddy, and Disney's cartoons. I learned English by watching Cartoon Network as a child. I still watch cartoons, I love Simpsons, South Park and I like long animated movies. Shrek, The Incredibles, Tarzan, Howl's Moving Castle.
One more thing I wan't to ask you all. Did you hate the Roadrunner cartoon? I just hated when the coyote paints a tunnel and the bird goes through but the coyote can't, I also liked Tom better and loved the few episodes where he beats the hell out of Jerry;D

Cartoons I liked; (this'll probably date me like hell, butů)
Looney Tunes (esp. Bugs Bunny & Elmer Fudd. Buggs introduced me to Rossini & Wagner)
Rocky & Bullwinkle Show (the variety of characters was great, a true ensemble show)
Felix the Cat (before it's time, quite esoteric)
Dudley Dooright (who could forget Snidely Whiplash?)
George of the Jungle (absolutely absurd, a welcome relief)
The Roadrunner (I liked watching the devices that the Coyote constructed)Present-day cartoons; (excluding anime)
Ren & Stimpy (one of my ringtones is "Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy" 'nuff said)
Dexter's Laboratory (what a genius, what an annoying sister)
The Powerpuff Girls (...wanna make something of it?!)That's all I can think of for now.

As a kid, Speed Racer was my favorite. Nowadays, it's Dexter's Lab.

As a kid it was Transformers and Thundercats. In high school, I actually watched Animaniacs and Gargoyles. I don't have any problem with the roadrunner cartoon, but it's the coyote that I like.
I'm a huge anime fan, so it would take a lot to list every cartoon I like now.

I loved Looney Tunes. I wasn't thrilled with the roadrunner/coyote ones. I loved Daffy Duck and Yosemite Sam.
I loved an OLD anime called Gigantor.
I also watched Jonny Quest.
Nowdays I love Aqua Teen Hunger Force, South Park, Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, Robot Chicken, actually anything on Cartoon Network Adult Swim. I watch that all the time.

Warner Bros, bugs and the gang as a kid, the rest in that time period were time wasters. pretty much hated scooby doo, and any hanna barbara (their art style and lowest common denominator targeted writing)or disney cartoon(too goody, goody), bit older, animaniacs, gargoyles, ren & stimpy...then anime. I watch more anime then anything else, and collect series when i can. A few more modern cartoons (american) Xaolin Showdown, ATHF, and Futurama (yes i watch reruns).
**resists listing animes**

Hmm... Some of the older shows I still watch if they are airing again (i.e. old Scooby Doo). Way too many to list so I'm only listing the main ones.
Here's a neat link I found: To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 2 or greater. You currently have 0 posts. It's a Top 50 Cartoons as voted on by animators in 1994. It includes youtube linked videos too but not sure how many still work.
- Inspector Gadget
- Looney Tunes
- Pinky & The Brain
- Rocko's Modern Life
- Scooby Doo
- The Simpsons (Up to Season 7 or 8)
- The X-Men
- Batman: The Animated Series
- Kim Possible
- Teen Titans

Back in the day my favorites were Daria, Ren & Stimpy, Rugrats and Rocko's Modern Life.
Nowadays I watch Futurama, Spongebob Squarepants, Family Guy, and Samurai Champloo.

Earthworm Jim !!! (Coolest cartoon character ever!)
The Tick (He battled his own snot - that was cool!)
Futurama (I like Bender)

I think most of the cartoons I like have been mentioned. But have everyone forgotten about Pinky and The Brain? I loved it as a kid, and I still like it.
