I've been taking a break from anime lately and currently binge watching on some cartoons. Right now, I'm watching Earthworm Jim and about half way through the series. Next up on my list is Pinky & the Brain. Also, anybody collect cartoons on DVD? I've got a pretty decent library of cartoons on my shelf (along with anime of course). Mainly cartoons from the 80's and 90's that I used to love watching. What are you all watching lately?

I agree that most modern cartoons have gone to hell. It’s why I mainly stick with cartoons from the 90s and older. The only modern cartoons I like to watch are adventure Time and Avatar the Last Airbender.

Avatar is safe because it's from 2005. Not too far off is Code Lyoko from 2003. Look how epic that was.
OG ben 10 is also from 2005 but look at how appalling the remake is. Teen titans remake is just as bad. I don't know what they're tryna do to this gens kids.

I watch Bob's Burgers and Rick and Morty still. Also waiting for the next season of Bojack Horseman.
I'll watch other cartoons if I end up finding something interesting, but those are the ones i'm currently watching.


Tell me, what is this bright side of life that you speak of?

I honestly don't know either. I was in high school at the time Avatar was around and cartoons were good up until 2006 I think. That's also around the time I stopped watching TV because all of the shows from the 90s were gone. The Emperor's New School was the last and only decent cartoon from 06. I don't think I stopped watching because I grew out of cartoons (because obviously, I still enjoy them very much), they just got worse over time.

All this gens kids get is remakes of stuff that was already great. They also don't get real hand drawn cartoons anymore which I think is horrible. I don't even consider CGI animation as a cartoon. It just doesn't have the same feeling as hand drawn. The magic of a cartoon is having great writers and when it's all hand drawn on paper, cell by cell. I feel bad for today's kids to be honest. Even my 6 year old niece says that she loves the old My Little Pony way better than the new one. It's a shame that TV just isn't how it used to be anymore.

@MoonLite88 at least in the age of information we have access to these older classics.

My three-year-old niece still enjoys her Disney Junior stuff but when I change to a channel like Boomerang (classic style cartoons) she can't get enough.

I guess some other cartoons I would still enjoy watching as an adult would be Over The Garden Wall (newer but a masterpiece), Megas XLR, and Samurai Jack... Pinky & the Brain as well tbh

The only cartoons I have physical copies of are on VHS tapes but I don't have a video player for them

Older ones, as in the ones I grew up with, yes absolutely. There are cartoon series I could never get tired of rewatching and because most are more episodic than anime and not serialized, you can just watch one or a few episodes from any season out of order and feel satiated.

I was born in 1991, so the 90s and early 2000s cartoons are what I grew up on. Everything halfway decent on Nickelodeon (mostly the early to mid 90s Nicktoons as my favorites were/are still The Wild Thornberrys, Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Rocko's Modern Life, and Ren & Stimpy). I never really got into their late 90s/early 2000s programming. Also from the time I used to watch it in the late morning before kindergarten (since our town only had half-day school for grade K), Rupert, which was a Canadian show adapted from an older British comic strip. Can still pick up any random episode and love it. There are others like this too, where I'm more familiar with the individual show than the whole channel it aired on (although Rupert aired on Nickelodeon in the morning programming block called Nick Jr.). Some of the PBS early childhood education shows I still find of great worth. Oh, and Jumanji the Animated Series, for WB or whichever channel that broadcast on.

Toon Disney, I've always liked Gargoyles, TaleSpin, House of Mouse, and DuckTales, to name a few.

The best from Cartoon Network was Courage the Cowardly Dog. To me I've always enjoyed that more than Scooby Doo which got a little too repetitive.

Another big show I started watching around 8 and revisited in the summer of 2014 was Pokemon Indigo League or the first season (the Kanto region and Orange Island arcs) dubbed, but I'll exclude that obviously since it's anime although most kids at our age didn't even know what anime was at the time.

I got into South Park around 10 years-old in fourth grade and watched it religiously and became obsessed. It's funny, because I still know seasons 1-10 by heart but when people reference the last half of the show's run, I have no clue as I stopped watching after that (not for any particular reason; just interest in other things and less interest in comedy and cartoons in general at that time). That was my entry point for watching more "adult animation" (not pornographic, but it's the term for shows aimed toward an audience of at least teenagers or up and like at least PG-13 content-wise on U.S. TV), like The Simpsons, King of the Hill, and going back to a few years before I was born to some of the 80s stuff like Beavis and Butt-Head.

There was never some break or defined point when I stopped watching cartoons. I always have. It's just that at some point I lost interest in what was new and currently airing in favor of watching reruns of the shows I already knew and loved from my earliest days. I would say that happened around 2003 or 2004 if I had to put a date on it. Both because the shows were dropping like a rock in a pond in terms of quality in my view, and because I was getting more interested in live action content like horror films, war epics, crime dramas, etc. from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s.

Then the funny thing is that Avatar aired in 2005 and blew up into the biggest American cartoon phenomenon ever since, but by 2005 I was in high school and the only Nickelodeon shows I would watch would be reruns of those aforementioned beloved classics, which they were now showing less and less anyway to make room for shitty tween sitcoms. So I never watched it first run and was more into movies at this time.

Then flash forward to 2016 when I got into anime accidentally. That encouraged me to simultaneously seek out new cartoons as well and revisit other ones. So I didn't watch ATLA and The Legend of Korra for the first time until late 2017, but they're probably the best serialized cartoon ever created in English for an American audience, and I rank them up there in my overall shows.

Now, I'm happy to still watch those reruns whenever and seek out cartoons new to me that either were on before I was born or just didn't know about/didn't watch at the time.

In the past few years I've watched through:

Exosquad (relatively obscure Sci-Fi and space opera worth checking out)
Aeon Flux (an early 90s avant-garde action series which aired on MTV on liquid television)
My Life as a Teenage Robot
The original Flintstones
Samurai Jack
Madeline (yes, the schoolgirl and all her trials and tribulations)
The Dragon Prince (newer series on streaming service)
The original MOTU (He-Man and Skeletor)
My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic
Castlevania
Voltron - Legendary Defender

I may be missing a few, but some of them have been among my best experiences with cartoons since actually living in the 90s.

Just goes to show that even modern kids still enjoy classic style animation. I really wish they would bring it back. It never should have been a dying art.

Nice. I still enjoy watching cartoons on VHS and own quite a few myself. I actually recently got the Elgato video capture N device to convert my old tapes. I still have a VHS player so I can use that to convert my old tapes to a digital file. I mainly wanted to convert our home videos but I decided I wanted to rescue a lot of the old Disney and other cartoon tapes that I own. It's nice that I don't have to worry about wearing down my old tapes anymore. I can just watch the digital files I have recorded.

Ah yes, I watched quite a bit of the Nick Jr. Block. I'm actually currently rewatching Little Bear. I always found that show relaxing and fun to watch. It's a good show to watch right before you're falling asleep. I miss the days of Toon Disney. I religiously watched just about every show on Toon Disney. Shows like Adventures of Sonic, cartoons from the Disney Afternoon block that reran on Toon Disney, Lloyd in Space, and Timon and Pumbaa, etc. Toon Disney had such a great run of cartoons. I wish they would bring it back as a separate network.

I too was in high school around when Avatar came out. I watched the whole series as it was airing on Nick. That was the last time I ever religiously watched a cartoon on Nickelodeon. Anyway, glad to know I'm not the only one who still enjoys 90's cartoons. :)

New Adventure Time: Distant Lands is coming this year which I'm hyped for and is still keeping traditional style. Also the newer looney toons and tom & jerry shows use a combination of traditional and flash animation techniques.
I would love to get my hands on a VHS converter.

This talk of older art styles is making me recall the old Harvey comics now. Granted, I wasn't exactly born when they were publishing, but a ton were kept for me which I read growing up. Absolute magic.

Damn Lloyd in space was good. Does anyone remember a show called 'Fillmore!' ? Because I did not until I came across it and was like "woah I remember this now". I think it's where my love for goth chicks was born lol

For animated series, exclusively American. My whole of 2019 has consisted of...

Batman: The Animated Series (rewatch) and The New Batman Adventures (rewatch), Samurai Jack (like Batman, started in 2018, finished in 2019), Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra, Peanuts '80s episodes, Aeon Flux, MTV's The Maxx, some Thundercats (on season 1 still) and some early episodes of South Park (season 2 right now). I can actually show them all in one picture.

Off the top of my head I'm still currently watching Harley Quinn, RWBY, Steven Universe Future, and Infinity Train.

I'm also waiting for Miraculous Ladybug, Camp Camp, South Park, Rick And Morty, Bojack Horseman, F Is For Family, Castlevania, RWBY Chibi, Nomad Of Nowhere, and Epithet Erased to all come back with their next seasons.

And to a lesser extent I'm also still waiting for Archer, Final Space, Disenchantment, Big Mouth, Neo Yokio, and Paradise PD to come back as well. I'm sure I'm probably forgetting some others too.

I used to watch all the adult Fox cartoons but fell out of it as they grew stale. However it's total fucking weeb shit when I hear idiots on here complain about there's no good American cartoons anymore; when in reality the current state of American cartoons is better now than it's ever been.

When I was younger there was a several year period where there was nothing but garbage like it was awful, but when Adventure Time came out it turned the entire industry around and things have been on the up and up ever since. Good show after good show has come out eventually it all culminating into Star Versus The Forces Of Evil which holy shit was a real masterpiece of a cartoon that did everything right that a cartoon needs to do and offered something for everybody (whether you like fun more or plot more). And frankly I can't wait to see what comes next.

Also on a side note I'm enjoying the flurry of "online" cartoons we've seen rise up too. I mentioned several big ones already that still have giant crews behind them (like the Rooster Teeth stuff or Epithet Erased) but even the smaller stuff is nice too. There's a Channel called ArcadeCloud that has multiple cartoons series it releases episodes for every week (these types of shows tend to be motion tween heavy so that they're doable without large teams), a couple of which I voice lead characters in, and I've been very much enjoying them as I watch these series continuing to grow. It's a nice little five to ten minute burst of goodness every few days, and I've been enjoying watching these kinds of Channels crop up offering alternative options to conventional network cartoons.

I too thoroughly enjoyed Little Bear. Neglected to mention it, but come to mention it, Franklin as well (the one with Franklin the turtle). If both were anime, it's easy to imagine they would be seamlessly classified as Slice of Life. So I'm happy to look back and discover that even at elementary school age long before my foray into anime, I was enjoying what were essentially SoL series. I could definitely pick up any episode of Little Bear even now and get sucked in.

And I would seriously recommend Rupert. It was on Nick Jr. but probably just a few years earlier and for a shorter time since it was technically a foreign import and not one of their original shows (I said before kindergarten classes in my post above, but now that I've dwelled on it, it was actually before afternoon preschool, so this was like 1994-95). Also a SoL but with an element of fantasy and adventure as well. There's usually some crazy escapade in each episode that manages to somehow remain both exciting and mellow. And it's set in a rural English hamlet so it's cozy as hell.

And yeah, Toon Disney's situation was odd. It became XD and then vanished. I never had it or the regular Disney channel as part of my cable package on our home TV until much later in high school, but was very familiar with and watched a lot of the shows when visiting Disney down in Florida for extended periods because I had a cousin who worked there for years. And I loved all the shows as well that were spinoff/sequels of the Disney featured canon. My favorite from those was Aladdin since it's also my favorite of their movies.

Oh, and I forgot PB&J Otter as well!

Man, the nostalgia in this thread

I pretty much avoid anything recent. The last thing I kept up with was Bob's Burgers and that was only because I remember Bob's voice actor as Coach McGuirk from Home Movies.

I miss stuff like Zim, Rocko, Ren & Stimpy, CatDog, Rocket Power, All Grown Up, the OG Rugrats, As Told By Ginger (my all time favorite). Still a fan of Ed Edd n Eddy as well.

I watch American TV/movies but not cartoons. The cartoons are either like:



or



Avatar and RWBY are more to my taste if we're talking about cartoons. They have a plotline that spans throughout the story. Unfortunately, I do not like either of those as well.

Sometimes, I need to have English subtitles even if it's voiced in English.
Lived in Ireland for 7 years, moved to England last year and yeah, I still need those sweet subtitles.

My brain is too used to subs that if there's no text at the bottom, my brain gets awfully slow comprehending what the guy in the show just said.

Not a lot of cartoons have English subtitles so my options are limited.
Watched Ricky & Morty 3 seasons, Gravity Falls, Avatar, Adventure Time up to season 5, Steven Universe 4 seasons, want to start watching Star vs. Forces of evil but there's no English subtitles .. yet.

I used to watch Cartoon Network, Disney and Nickelodeon cartoons when I was growing up, not so much this days.
They just don't make good cartoons anymore.
I feel sorry for anyone who grows up watching Uncle Grandpa and Teen Titans Go!.

Cartoon Network was on downward spiral ever since 2006 and it was only getting worse and worse with time.
This days it' pretty much dead I don't think they have a single competent cartoon left, it's all just shitty reboots and mediocre cartoons.
The same is true for Nickelodeon and even more so with Disney who are only interested in live action and milking nostalgia.
Western cartoons are dead long live Anime.

Yo nice little collection! By the way, how's the video quality on Avatar the Last Airbender bluray? I own the original DVD releases and the uninterlaced lines make it really unwatchable. I hope they fixed that issue in the bluray set.

I'm the same in regards to avoiding anything recent. I just can't get into shows like Steven Universe, the new MLP, Rick and Morty, or Regular Show. I too miss those shows. Also Cow & Chicken and OG Powerpuff Girls I remember liking too.

Thanks to Disney+ it allowed to re-experience the awesomeness that was Gargoyles! A superb television show. Hears hoping to a revival.

On the other side of the spectrum I've been re-watching a lot of the old Looney Tunes shorts. They'll never get old. Still as gut bustlingly funny as the day they were made. Speaks volumes about how safe and stagnant comedy has become in this day and age.

You're right; it disgusts me. :'D

Although there is ONE (okay more than one probably) Loony Toon that hasn't aged well. It was a Sylvester cartoon with a green bird and the bird kept trying to commit suicide because his wife left him.

If you watch it as an adult now? It's kinda horrific. o___O All I could think was "Dude...this is just not funny...." Even the cat was like 'Dude WTF is wrong with you?" xD

Slapstick violence is great...but THAT particular cartoon has made people's lists of 'Most Disturbing Cartoons" and I definitely agree with them.

Yeah! but mostly for nostalgia, but goddamn! I love Young Justice. So glad that this cartoon moved over to HBO. Btw, Netflix could have made an I Hate Fairyland webcartoon series, another missed opportunity for them.

Speaks volumes about how safe and stagnant comedy has become in this day and age.


You're right; it disgusts me. :'D

Although there is ONE (okay more than one probably) Loony Toon that hasn't aged well. It was a Sylvester cartoon with a green bird and the bird kept trying to commit suicide because his wife left him.

If you watch it as an adult now? It's kinda horrific. o___O All I could think was "Dude...this is just not funny...." Even the cat was like 'Dude WTF is wrong with you?" xD

Slapstick violence is great...but THAT particular cartoon has made people's lists of 'Most Disturbing Cartoons" and I definitely agree with them.


Oh, I completely agree. Majority of the original shorts are not appropriate for children... not that I would stop mine from watching. Looney Tunes is In this weird middle ground where it’s cartoony style is more appealing for children, even though the content housed within is meant for an adult audience. Go figure.

Okay, Hazbin Hotel was excellent and I'd like more of it please.

Also recommend for adult cartoon fans who want GOOD animation and neat, imaginative designs instead of crudely drawn stuff. :)

Currently rewatching The Clone Wars in anticipation for season 7 in February, it'll probably always be my favourited animated show ever being the Star Wars nerd I am

Yes, but they're not as big a priority as anime. Last year I only really watched Rick and Morty season 4 and Primal, which I enjoyed.

No because they all suck ass now. Cartoon network and nick are all fucking terrible. Out of all the new shows the loud house is the only good one. All the new stuff is horrendous. Paw patrol was rated like worst cartoon ever or something. The kids Mexican show, whatever it is called and worst of all the show about a apple and a onion.... Who designs this shit? Where is johnny test and imaginary house and grim adventures???? fucking masterpieces.

I do, but much less now than before I really got into anime. Before it was a few times a week usually, now it's more like once a month. Recently, the only Amercian cartoons I recall watching are the fourth season of Rick and Morty and random episodes of The Simpsons and Futurama.

I thought Johnny Test sucked. Grim Adventures was decent though.
