Default Favorite Old School cartoons?

Lame thread topic, but it's late and there's not much else to do.

Old school cartoons for my era are stuff from the 90's like "Doug", "Angry Beavers", and "Hey Arnold"

I'm curious as to see what you guys watched growing up.

This may get moved to the Media forum, but:

I grew up with X-Men, TMNT, etc...
But I do love some of the later stuff.

The shows I listed are those I think have held up the best over time.

Other shows like Captain Panet, Captan N, Super Maio Bros Super Show are shows I loved as a kid but are just laughably awful when I try to watch them now.

I could never watch Captain N when eating though, because the very sight of Mother Brain made me ill. That bitch was ugly.



Anyway, I only listed the shows from my early childhood (before my teens).

Hey Arnold was a good show. But that was around the time when I grew out of the Nick phase. I enjoyed watching it, but it was one of those shows that always had a message, which annoyed me even when I was a kid. Arnold kinda came across as a self righteous assh*le sometimes.

I gotta give props to Invader Zim though, one of the most brilliantly twisted and imaginative kids cartoons ever made, and it died way before it's time.

The fact that they canceled such an awesome show so they could keep showing that piece of sh*t Rocket Power is still something I haven't gotten over completely.

I forgot about Aaaah Real Monsters, awesome show. Though I didn't like it as much as the other old school nicktoons because I found it to be a bit too gross, which as a Ren & Stimpy fan, is really saying something.

yeah, network execs aren't exactly the best at seeing artistic vision


what still pisses me off to this day is how Cartoon Network canceled Megas XLR after only two seasons

What pissed me off more than anything as a kid was when they canceled the saturday morning Sonic cartoon, the one where Robotnik was an evil, badass dictator instead of a functionally retarded person. Unlike the weekly show most people remember (the one with Scratch and Grounder and the Sonic Sez segments that will forever be immortalized in youtube poop) this one actully had a storyline, and a pretty damn good one for a kids show. Also it had the coolest intro of any kids show ever.



The last episode ended on a huge cliffhanger for the third season, which never came and pissed me off to no end.

I think it was canceled because it couldn't compete with Power Rangers, so naturally ABC replaced it with something that could... a f*cking Free Willy cartoon that nobody liked. F*cking idiots.
