There has to be a way to go back and vote again! How do you expect me to pick only one answer from so much cartoon joy?
I think we need another poll just for favorite saturday morning cartoon from the 80s, but that may just be me.
(Snorks and GoBots all the way! All hail the generic cartoon revolution!)
Hmm...would Bobby's World count as a Generic cartoon? *ducks just incase anyone gets that line*

"Hmm...would Bobby's World count as a Generic cartoon? *ducks just incase anyone gets that line*"
That's terrible. Augh. *throws a tomato*
what about weekday cartoons of the '80s? he-man? she-ra? silverhawks? mask? come on, people! (and some rotten produce for talcott's "generic" line...heee)
Or even the weekday afternoon cartoons of the mid-90s....
Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain! (ok, the warner bros. ones at least)
Heck, if it weren't for Tiny Toons, I bet a number of us (myself included) might never of found our way here.
yup, without tiny toons, i never would've gotten into tmbg (i'd seen them on nick rocks and been traumatized by the "hotel detective" video, but the tiny toons videos several years later were all i needed to go out and find copies of all of their cds). i also would never have discovered the roches, but that's a different story. oOwe are the roches, and if you think bugs aren't cool, we knew the beatles when they were in liverpoooooool!Oo
Kinda the same story here.
For the longest time, I thought the songs were made for the show. It wasn't until a bit later that I caught on to things.
I remember being disapointed when I got my first TMBG album, and it wasn't Flood.
Of course, that album was John Henry, which is today my favorite of theirs.
So it goes...
One of the best CD comps to come out of the 90s was the Saturday Morning Cartoons CD. THis is the CD that had alt-rock bands doing covers of cartoon themes from the 60s-70s. Highlights include Matthew Sweet on Scooby Doo, Ramones on Spiderman, and the best one of all: Violent Femmes doing Eep Oop Ork Ah-Ah from the Jetsons. Awesome CD.

There's a similar CD of "School House Rock!" songs, which is *awesome.* (That just goes to show you how much of a dork I am...) My favorite track is Better than Ezra on "Conjunction Junction." *Grin.

ok wheres spongebob!!!! hes the best! I"M READY!!!!! heheh
The funniest thing I've seen on Conan was when Conan and Max were watching World Cup, but then just HAD to interrupt their viewing Sponge Bob came on. What was even funnier was how the crowd went nuts when the image of Sponge Bob came on the screen.

Excuse me but Bugs Bunny is the greatest cartoon ever and it isn't even nominated? What is this Lapinphobia?
trunger is counting... · 18 years, 8 months ago
Why must you make me choose between my beloved cartoons!? What kind of cruel, sick, twisted joke is this?! Oh the humanity!!! Why?! Why?! WWWWHHHHHYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Um.....I think I'm done now. Carry on.
Eri · 18 years, 8 months ago
but why isn't there a 'none of the above' option? *pout* I mean, my favorite cartoon is Undergrads, which isn't on there; neither is Recess.... and, well, I'm not all that fond of any of the choices. :P So, I'm just not gonna vote. No, scratch that, I'm gonna vote 'none of the above' even if it's not an option. ;)

You all might be surprised, but I don't know Saturday Morning Cartoons...
that's what happens if peopel are from different parts of the world:)

I use the phrase "saturday morning cartoons" to mean any cartoon aimed towards children. Here in the states, there's a grand tradition of all the networks playing kids cartoons all morning on Saturday.
Wait, I thought you said that Bugs Bunny counted under "saturday morning cartoons", those definitly weren't aimed at kids.
(They might be marketed that way nowadays, but that's not how they were made)
Of course saturday morning is all but dead. Instead we just have 12 über-edited anime series, and 15 Saved by the Bell clones. Sure, some people get cartoon network and such, but others of us are cable-less.
Gah, am I really old enough to be talking about the "good ol' days"?

don't worry, talcott, i miss the good ol' days too! :D they used to have quality cartoons on saturday mornings, like thundercats and tom and jerry and tex avery stuff and he-man! woohoo! though of course today we have recess, and the wild thornberrys. heh. gotta love those cartoons :)
