Thanks for the list. For me, probably Dexter’s Laboratory. I am a child of the ninties and that was the best one.

The Jetsons

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

The Jetsons – only because the futuristic aspect was incredibly appealing.

Cruiser's avatar

My man Johnny Bravo! Come on….there is no other!

tedibear's avatar

The Jetsons, the Flintstones, The Roman Holidays. The Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo, Josie & The Pussycats and Magilla Gorilla.

SmashTheState's avatar

Jabberjaw, Captain Caveman, and Speed Buggy were my favourites. (But of course, the Krofft Superstars—Dr. Shrinker, Ultra Woman and Dyna Girl, Land of the Lost, the Space Nuts, et al.—were better than any of the Hanna Barbera cartoons.)

filmfann's avatar

I am torn between Top Cat (a nice play on the old Phil Silvers show), and the Power-Puff Girls.

Mana's avatar

The Jetsons and Smurfs.

CMaz's avatar

H.R. Pufnstuf and the Bugaloos.

Ooops, that is Sid and Marty Krofft. :-)

The Quick Draw McGraw Show.

wilma's avatar

The Flintstones,
The Jetsons,
Johnny Quest. (I had a crush on Hadji, and also Race Bannon)
I suppose I would have to pick The Flintstones as my favorite, after all my screename is wilma.
but I have Judy Jetson’s hair

AstroChuck's avatar

As a kid I absolutely loved Shazzan.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Johnny Bravo, The Powerpuff Girls and Dexter’s Laboratory are all pretty awesome. As a kid, I only liked The Archies and Josie and The Pussycats when the music came on. Likewise, the only episode of The Flintstones I like is when Fred became the pop star “Hi-Fi”.

H-B’s style of limited animation annoyed me as a child, though at the time, I didn’t know what it was that irritated me.

AstroChuck's avatar

@filmfann- I forgot about Top Cat. I love T.C. as I’m a huge Ernie Bilko fan. And Benny the Ball was even voiced by Maurice Gosfield, who played Pvt. Duane Doberman.

And of course The Flintstones was just a take-off on The Honeymooners.

shego's avatar

What-a-Cartoon show
and Dexters Lab
and Tom and Jerry’s kids
I just never realized how many different shows Hanna-Barbera had

wtfrickinfrack's avatar

Oh man!! Snorks!! I forgot about that show! I used to want to live in Snorkland when I was little!

cornbird's avatar

The Jetsons

lillycoyote's avatar

The Jetsons and Top Cat.

Berserker's avatar

The Banana Splits Adventure Hour? Wtf lol.

Anyways, Powerpuff Girls all the way, and then The Adam’s Family.

Kraken's avatar

@py_sue Yeah that was a good one.

Kraken's avatar

@Cruiser – Meh, that one sucked the big one.

Kraken's avatar

@filmfann or else you will here on else be known as filmfannette.

Kraken's avatar

@Mana The Smurfs of course.

Kraken's avatar

@lillycoyot On Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken it has been proven that Garfield the cat had totally destroyed Heathcliff in a cat court of law. The judgment is bound and true: Garfield owns Heathcliff the cat….

NaturallyMe's avatar

Ok, i don’t know where your other question went to, but it seems i’ve seen quite a few of these cartoons! The Flintstones are still my favourite. Dexter’s Lab is funny but only because of the way Dexter speaks, hehehehe! And Johnny Bravo is funny too.

Kraken's avatar Exist stage left.

Eat a rotisserie chicken too or else!

NaturallyMe's avatar

I know where to find myself!

And….or else what exactly….???

Kraken's avatar

@NaturallyMe Or else you are forced to find yourself in my most fondest dreams for the next 50 years and you just might like that if you really gave it deep thought.

Kraken's avatar

@wtfrickinfrack The Snorks fricking rock solid!

NaturallyMe's avatar

@Kraken – well i can live with that. You can have my share of the chicken.

Kraken's avatar

@NaturallyMe I’m a leg and breast man!
