It's definitely a unique show.



And notice that Madoka Magica is second on that list, only losing out to a Hayao Miyazaki film, and who doesn't come in second to Hayao Miyazaki?
Hmmm, I see; perhaps I'll watch that one then (well, after I rewatch either Jem, He-Man, or Gargoyles, or the X-Files), seeing as it's on the netflix.
And I like Sailor Moon! (Because I am a cornball.)

Miyazaki films are so excruciatingly adorable that they can be difficult to watch; Ponyo nearly killed me. Need to see the more recent two soon.

OMG I love Gargoyles. One of the royalty shows of my childhood. I still have an embarrassing crush on Demona.

I've heard mixed things but obviously I'm going to eventually watch any new Sailor Moon, even if I just end up wanting to watch the old episodes.

I know I had a Goliath toy but I don't think I had any more. Maybe I had a Steel Clan toy but that's just supposition.

Fearsome predator attack armor! :0 Well now I've got to have it!

I'm thrilled that others also appreciate Gargoyles. Last time I watched it was when I had the flu for a week; I'm not sure if I recommend watching Gargoyles while afflicted with a raging fever and delirium, but I can't say I don't recommend it, either.



I believe the entire show is on the youtube! It's here, too: Watch Gargoyles Season 1 Full Episodes Online Free

I'm tempted to purchase this tiny Lexington here:

You bring up an unfortunate point unintentionally. The old X-Men cartoon is major nostalgia, but the dialogue is basically made of cheap quips and one-liners. Loved it as a kid but now it doesn't really hold up. X-Men Evolution is still gold though. That part at the end of the second season/beginning of the third season when the X-Men were discovered by the world was easily the best version of mutants being discovered by humanity that I've ever seen (even in comics). The whole show is fun, but that part was just elevated to legendary status for me.
