I should have mentioned my two other favorites:
Transformers and GI Joe... some of the stuff on GI Joe was quite risque for a kids show and for its day. It was ahead of its time.

For all those who dislike Scooby Doo:

Have you seen Eddie Izzard's bit on the merits of Scooby and Shaggy? I think it's in Dress To Kill; freaking hilarious.

Yeah, I didn't mention Looney Tunes, since those weren't made for television. In the same vein, almost anything by Tex Avery works.

My guilty pleasure - Hong Kong Phooey!   


Number One Super-guy! I love anything where the hero is kind of a bungler. And I could listen to Scatman Crothers' voice all day.

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

Have you seen the uncut version of Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker?

  Actually have only watched a few eps of Beyond. I'm a huge fan of the original animated series, but never had time/energy to give the rest of the 'toons their due. Please tell me Mark Hammil voiced the Joker for the ep (assuming it was the original Joker).

It was a feature-length movie and, for my money, is right up there as a candidate for Best Batman Film (and, yes, Mark Hamill is TOTALLY in it). Make sure the version you rent says "The Original, Uncut Version" at the top of the front; you won't regret it.

BTW, if you were a fan of B:TAS, you might want to consider the excellent Superman and Justice League series from the same creative team.

I'm still waiting for a Marvel 'toon series to come out that's as well done as the DC series..es...es..es. The early '90s X-Men and Spiderman toons were all right, but still not quite THERE.

I know what you mean. X-Men was based on the 90's version of the team (ICK!), and was both over-detailed and under-animated. My only BIG beef with the 90's Spider-Man is the compromises that were made to make the show "kid-safe" (Marvel Productions failed to stand up to Fox Standards & Practices the way WB Animation did with Batman).

  Ah, way ahead of ya there. I watch Superman/Justice League any chance I get (which isn't often. Full time jobs are life vampires more than any videogame could be). I LOVE the Justice League, especially the smaller core team. I think the show is beautifully done and it's about one notch below the Batman series in my mind.

   I'll have to check out the Beyond movie then. Better than Mask of the Phantasm?

Boy, it's neck-and-neck. Return of the Joker is PG-13, and is more intense than Mask (the flashback sequence is possibly the most chilling thing I've seen in any of the DC animated projects). But Mask of the Phantasm does have more in the way of character development.

I saw the Iron Man animated feature the other day.  It was OK.  When they used computer animation, it looked pretty stunning.

   I thought it was a little distracting, m'self. One second it's normal animation, the next second it isn't. But I thought it was overall a good flick.

   Let me throw in a good word for the horribly non-animated mid-60s Marvel toons. Captain America, the Hulk, Namor, Iron Man and Thor in short chapters, designed to fit two per 15-minute shows; what they lacked in lame animation, they made up for with using the original art and storylines.  I tire of these current guys who make inane changes just for the purpose of putting their stamp on the franchise.
    You can also play "Name the Artist" as the clip art switches back and forth.  The cheesy theme songs almost rise to the level of the 60s Spider-Man theme.
     I'm also hoping that this year's Fantastic Four movie finally leads to the DVD release of their 60s toon.  Only 20 episodes but the majority faithfully adapted Stan and Jack's stories.
