Sticking only with TV shows and in no particular order (also only stuff I like; trying to keep it positive):

The Venture Brothers
Robot Chicken
Samurai Jack
The Simpsons
South Park
Family Guy
(sometimes, when it's not busy trying too hard)
The King of the Hill (although I haven't watched in a while)
Batman: The Animated Series (not to be confused with KidsWB's current The Batman show)
Superman: The Animated Series
Justice League
and Justice League Unlimited (I spent my childhood being subjected to the Superfriends; seeing classic DC characters done right warms my heart)
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law
Space Ghost Coast To Coast
Ren & Stimpy
(the good stuff, not the SpikeTV version)
Teen Titans (shut up, you)

  Favorites, recent stuff:  Futurama, Simpsons, South Park, Venture Bros.
  Favorite classics:  Rocky and Bullwinkle and the original Jonny Quest.

    Least favorite:  There's so much stuff I've never watched that would qualify, but of stuff that I've seen at least some of it, how about Flintstones, Smurfs, Thundercats and Masters of the Universe.

  Best: 3-way tie between Home Movies, Venture Bros, and the animated Batman series.

  Worst: Scooby Doo. I can't stand this show. Never could. And I hate that it became popular again after the movies.

Much as it pains me to admit it, Scooby's resurgence actually happened BEFORE the movies. In '99, Cartoon Network actually held an election to determine what cartoon should be the president of Cartoon Network. Scooby won. He won over Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Yogi Bear, Brak, and 45 others, if memory serves. (BLASPHEMY, I say!) At that point, Cartoon Network started showing Scooby shamelessly as often as possible. THAT led to the movie...

yeah interesting though, or rather pretend it is interesting, and think of all that meant about the 00 election.

I thought Scooby Doo was just fine during the early years... then they introduced Scrappy and whatever the dumb one was called and it was all down hill (I want to say he was Scooby Dumb, but that just doesn't sound right). There is nothing wrong with the original gang solving mysteries with the occasional 1970's guest star thrown in to help. What kind of cold, sadistic childhood did you have to lead to not find enjoyment in Scooby and Shaggy acting like barbers and giving the monster a haircut?!? Comedy GOLD to an eight year old... and if you deny it then either you are lying, don't recall being eight or you are a cold, cold bastard. Anyways...

Favorites:

Freakazoid
Scooby Doo (the early years)
Ren'n'Stimpy (the early years)
Simpsons (more so towards the early years... but they still sneak in a gem here and there)
GI Joe (for the most part it was perfectly written to it's target audience... to expect it to hold up as you grow old is naive at best, retarded at worst)
Animaniacs
Pinky and the Brain

Least:

Nothing here really. If a newer animated show doesn't immediately catch my interest, I usually don't come back. There were so many horrible cartoons when I was a kid, I won't bother trying to recall them.

  Well, I must have been an abnormal child because I never found Scooby Doo very appealing and/or funny. But then, I never found the Flintstones or the Jetsons that great either.

  Mind you, this is only MY opinion. Doesn't mean any of those shows aren't worth liking.

I never found much appealing in Flintstones or Jetsons either... but I guess the whole solving mysteries angle just saved Scooby for me. Also, I was watching first run, original gang Scooby episodes as a child in the late 70's. I'm sure perceptions change for people that grew up later with full exposure to cable TV and whatnot. I'm not trying to guess your age, but if you didn't like Scooby as a 2nd grader in 1979... then yea, you might have been abnormal. There was little else to actually like.

Seconded! (I think. :^))

While I have a long list of favorites, they're all distant seconds to Looney Tunes. :^)
