discussion of the day...

hoping on that old nostalgic wagon, which cartoons do you remember enjoying the MOST as kids and why?

adults?

i have a sneaky suspicion that tefen will pounce in and loudly proclaim his love for MASK... anyone else remember that? i do.

i HAD to watch the g.i. joe and transformers hour when i got home from school, all the way up until i hit 13.

i was big into the dungeons and dragons cartoon, too (UNI!)

i remember even at an early age, hating vitually everything that was hannah barbara, thinking they were trite and stupidly drawn/voiced.

as far as cartoon movies goes, The Last Unicorn and Secret of N.I.M.H. were my favorites. i remember seeing part of Watership Down around age 8 and SOBBING. because i had missed the first part of that, i've secretly been slightly obsessed with it ever since.

as an 'adult', i adore x-men and just about anything about superheros and mutants (well, the classic ones, i don't really have much desire to watch stuff like Static Shock...) was a big animaniacs fan (tiny toons before that...)

and naturally adult swim ;)

and INVADER ZIM! mwa ha haaaaaa.

I remember watching HEB because we didn't have cable and not much else was on.

As an adult I like SB

I used to love MASK. I even had the merchandise, because I was a good little child of the '80's.

Also Smurfs, Carebears, My little pony, Glow Worms.
Also GI Joes.. because it was on before my little pony.

my brother got into those much more than i did, as when we moved to a place that had nick, i was already almost 10 and grown out of a lot of those, though i recognize the names from my brother obsessively watching them.

I am shocked that noone has mentioned Thundercats yet - a show I STILL discuss. MASK, He-Man, D&D and Transformers are classics.

Simpsons and Futurama are consistantly funny if mainstream.

Family Guy and The Brak Show are my two faves right now.

I was a big fan of Transformers & Thundercats, also a show called "G-Force" if anyone remembers that, kind of a Voltron also ran (which I also liked). Best of all was a show called Starblazers, which everyone remembers as the "one with the ship that had that one really huge gun" (the wave-motion cannon).

i'm so sad that i don't remember Starblazers! i also remember some saturday morning cartoon with a superhero band, i remember having a crush on the lead singer. would have run about '79 or so (and no, it was not jem, it had guys.)

i want to say that i remember g-force!
