Here you can talk about any American cartoon as well as post your favorites and, if you want, why they are your favs.

For me my favorite would be Family Guy at the moment. I just love the random humor and those references to old movies/shows/music. But my favorite non-comedy cartoon is probably the original Batman cartoon. That show was awesome.

Runner up to Family Guy would be South Park and The Simpsons of old. The newer episodes of the Simpsons (the last few seasons) are just terrible in my opinion. I reallllly try to watch it every so often and I want to like it but I just can't. I don't know if they have new writers or what, all i know is that they're doing a terrible job.

When I was younger, my favs for different periods of time were: Beavis and Butthead, Ren & Stimpy, Looney Tunes, Tiny Toons, Scooby Doo, Dexter's Laboratory, etc.

Edit: I knew there was a topic on this. It was in the wrong section (the Anime Section). The only reason I made this one was to consolidate all the cartoon threads into one.

I guess I'll keep this one up and remove the other one since the other one is solely about favorites. This one is about old, new, upcoming, favorites, and ones you hate.

Hands down, my favorite cartoon was Animaniacs. Who could not love characters such as pinky and the brain? Megalomaniac mice foiled by simple common sense. Bloody brilliant.

Of course, Ren and Stimpy and their catchy 1950's like jingles, Family guy and the wit and caustic camaraderie of the dog and the baby, and lastly Sponge Bob Square pants since my son loves it too...

Edit: I had forgotten how much I loved the Simpson's when they first came out! Thanks for the reminder mauz!

I don't like family guy, sometimes it's like they are trying too hard to be funny.

I really miss the Simpsons' Golden age, now it's like a completely different show.

I love these two:

The old Megaman saturday morning cartoon. Even though they made Protoman evil, it was still VERY good for an american made show.

Most anything targeted at males from the 80s. Even though they were all glorified toy commercials, they were glorious.

I've tried going back and watching TMNT... I don't know, I can watch thundercats, transformers, etc and still enjoy them, but TMNT is kind of hard to now. I may try again sometime.

Anamaniacs is hilarious. Kind of a modern twist on all the old classic Chuck Jones 'toons (which are all good too).

I have a soft spot for Disney. They're kinda hit and miss now, but I think Lilo and Stitch is one of the best animated features to come out on either side of the world in recent years. I've heard the new Disney feature is going to be all hand drawn, so even if it's shitty it will at least be interesting to watch.

Hmmm it just occured to me what a generation there may be for some of us here... I didn't grow up with an anime, that was something I got into much later in life where as alot of people here have probably been watching pokemon, dbz, toonami, for the last 10 years or so.

yeah its the one with iceman and firestar. i think it was an 80s cartoon. maybe early 90s. i think 80s and 90s had the best stuff. like captain planet, transformers, thundercats. i might remember more later. o yeah, teen titans is decent and justice league.
