What cartoons from your childhood do you still find entertaining?

Asked by muppetish (14239points) March 30th, 2012

Lately, I have been watching cartoons again. It started with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (laugh if you wish), but it also sparked an interest in me to revisit many of the cartoons I loved watching as a kid and adolescent: Doug, Rugrats, Tiny Toon Adventures, Recess, The Powerpuff Girls, etc.

Not every show holds up (or every episode), but many of them still make me laugh and not just for nostalgic purposes. The shows definitely had a great staff of writers that knew how to write for audiences young and old.

Cat Scratch, Rugrats, Power Puff Girls, Fairly Odd Parents, Jimmy Neutron, Dexter, and The Kids Next Door (:

Entertaining only in the sense that I derive pleasure from the porn that exists of it.
My little Pony porn is pretty hot.

George of the Jungle was my favorite…....With, Dut-duh-du-du-Da, Tom Slick and Super Chicken!

Oh, and I also enjoyed The Monkees, although, technically, it was not a cartoon. It was however on Saturday Morning.

Could those who have listed shows that they still enjoy provide reasons for why they still find them enjoyable? @ragingloli When I found out what the ClopClop subreddit was, I was very, very confused.

I’m in the 60’s cartoon category…I LOVE the Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote. One of the all time best!

Hey Arnold, Rugrats, Doug, and a number of others are still very enjoyable to me.

I think because they were a step up from the rest of the cartoons on in the morning. They would have little “asides” and comments that let you into the minds of the characters.
Another Favorite was Rocky and Bullwinkle. Kind of like adult humor in kid form.

Spongebob. Who doesn’t love Spongebob?

Also: Fairly Oddparents, Tom & Jerry, Hey Arnold, Doug, Totally Spies, Jimmy Neutron and The Powerpuff Girls. There are probably more, I just can’t think of them right now. Cartoons are awesome!

I hate spengbab. In fact, I despise almost all western cartoons.

Looney Tunes never gets old to me.

I always found the humor of Bugs Bunny and the gang to work on many levels. Purely visceral for children, great sarcasm and absurdity for teens, and a little bit of social commentary for adults. I also like the glimpses into the culture of the time they were made (1940s).

I grew up watching them in the 1970s but I still enjoy them today.

Truthfully, I think a good portion of my personality came from watching Looney Tunes (along with M*A*S*H and the Carol Burnet Show).

I don’t think I’ll ever stop watching cartoons because of my age.

The other day I watched a DBZ movie.

@rojo, I LOVED Rocky and Bullwinkle! I watched it whenever possible. It wasn’t on every Saturday anymore, but I looked forward to
watching it whenever I could.
In college my friends and I watched Animaniacs, and loved it!

The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Rockey and Bulwinkle and Friends. I really liked Mr. Peabody with his wayback machine.
I also like Looney Toons, and Huckleberry Hound.

Pretty much all the 90’s Cartoon Network and Nick cartoons, aka the greatest time in cartoon history

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Fraggle Rock, Looney Toons, Tom and Jerry, and the Animaniacs.

janbb's avatar

@filmfann They are still the best!

AmWiser's avatar

I still find Bugs Bunny, Road Runner and Tazmanian Devil entertaining.

At 15, I love just sitting there and watching Cartoon Network, and Boomerang. They have all of my favorite cartoons like Tom and Jerry, and most importantly The Looney Tunes.

Beavis and Butthead. I have all three boxsets. Ren and Stimpy, Duckman, Mission Hill and Undergrads. And of course, The Simpsons. Those are all older audience cartoons though. Stuff for kids I used to watch, Rugrats was a favorite. I hated it when they made that second set of episodes where the babies were grown up and going to school though. That was so goddamn lame, and whoever had that idea obviously failed to capture the magic of the original shows. Hey Arnold was great. I also loved Gargoyles.
Not a cartoon, but Are You Afraid of the Dark. I was always saying it was the dumbest show, but somehow I never missed it.
Stuff I actually watched as a kid. Well I already said Ren and Stimpy, I also loved Goof Troop and Aladdin. Those were my cartoons I’d watch like religion when I got back from school. (I always missed the first minutes of Aladdin though)
At one point or another, I re watched a lot of these, and while some are bizarre by today’s standards, they’re still quite enjoyable. also, Princess Sisi rocks

I love the Old (the very first ) Scooby Doo’s. Scooby Doo Where are you? is the shit. Actually, everything Pre-Scrappy was awesome. I also like Beavis and Butthead, and a series called Star Blazers. I still enjoy these. :)

I still love Shaun the Sheep. If you haven’t seen it, you’re missing out. I bought all the DVDs recently, for my own viewing pleasure…....

Doug, Rugrats, Rocko’s Modern Life (love that one), Ren and Stimpy, Hey Arnold, I find them all entertaining as I see stuff in them that I didn’t see as a kid. Some of the humour in these programmes is quite adult (maybe because they know that parents sometimes watch these shows with their kids). My brother and I were children during Nickelodeon’s prime. I hear it’s not so good now.

Bugs Bunny. Mr. Magoo was fun. Mickey Mouse. Popeye.

I love the old Chuck Jones stuff, including Bugs Bunny. One of my favorite ones is One Froggy Evening with Michigan J. Frog singing the Michigan Rag.

I also love the Bugs Bunny episode where he pretends to be Leopold Stokowski at the Hollywood Bowl.

And this one called The Dot and the Line which is a very interesting psychedelic/beatnik kind of lovestory.

Invader Zim, & The Rugrats.

I have a good friend (my honorary big brother) who I look forward to watching Ben Ten with whenever possible. We have a “date” to see the upcoming movie when it is released.
