Favorite cartoons & cartoon talk
#1
So first of all, does anyone here watch any?

I was skipping through channels a few months past past and found Cartoon Network. A few hours later... TIME WELL SPENT!!! I guess it's the nostalgia. It's nice to turn off your brain and just watch some cartoons every once in a while.

Back when I was a kid there used to be sooo many great shows being shown, like these for example: [link]

Nowadays that stuff is certainly a lot different. Not necessarily bad, I've found there to be a few that are actually really enjoyable, like the new My Little Pony show, Adventure Time and Gravity Falls.

I guess this is a thing you should know about, and this for everyone who is not familiar with me. I can't make short opening posts.

There aren't many cartoons that I like. I guess I grew up. I like the animes though, stuff like Pokemon, Beyblade, Bakugan. I used to watch those on Cartoon Network all the time.
If there's something weird,
And it don't look good,
Guess who it is?
GHOST NAPPA!!!

Gravity Falls is surprisingly good for a cartoon that's on the Disney channel. The characters are quirky and I love how they put to much detail into it as there's a large sense of mystery clouding it.

Adventure Time is another good one that I should get back to watching. Props to the creator for making such a creative world with an interesting (and somewhat dark) back story.

Have you seen the new series?

My thoughts exactly. Disney Channel was showing on my TV for a few weeks (my service provider does that sometmes) and it was the only show that I saw as watchable. Even then, I just happened to open TV when it was on :D By now I've seen all the episodes thus far.

I like Adventure Time and My Little Pony, but I haven't watched any Gravity Falls.

I really like Regular Show and the Amazing World of Gumball. The Looney Tunes show and the new Scooby Doo show aren't half bad either.

It looks like there's a big shakeup going on with CN's Action Shows on the DC Nation block. They're getting rid of Young Justice and Green Lantern. They're making a new Teen Titans series called Teen Titans Go! but it's not an action show, it's a comedy show. It also looks like they're making another one of those Lego shows that I've never been able to get into.

It's a shame because I really liked Young Justice. Like Thundercats and Symbionic Titan, I think it ended too soon.

Definitely not as heartbreaking as the cancellation of MegasXLR.

The state of cartoons on Cartoon Network really isn't that bad. There's been a revival of good shows lately. Ben10 isn't for me, but I think it's a pretty good action show for kids who are at the target age.

Nickelodeon is another story. I can't really think of anything worth watching besides Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and SpongeBob. The entire channel is mostly made up of the tween Disney Channel-esque shows. I mean, we had some of those when I was a kid (Kenan & Kel for example) but it seems like that's basically the whole damn channel now.

The Hub is another pretty good channel. Its got a more diverse range of programming, but my only problem is that it's all very product oriented. It makes sense why: Hasbro partly owns the channel and you can consider growing restrictions on how often advertisers can target ads towards kids. I don't necessarily think that these shows made to sell toys are bad, I just wish they'd take more chances with some shows that aren't meant to push forward product.

I can't really speak too much about cartoons on Disney or Disney XD... I just don't really watch those channels. I saw the Ultimate Spider-Man show, and while it's definitely aimed at younger kids, I don't think it's that bad of a show. But Iron Fist and Nova are some of my favorite overlooked Marvel characters, so anything that gets them more exposure is okay in my book.

A lot of people like Phineas and Ferb. It seemed like a pretty good cartoon from the little I've seen of it, just not really my type of cartoon. That platypus is cute though.

I loved Avatar the last airbender and I really like Legend of Korra, albeit not nearly as much as the first show, but it's still really fun to watch. Also, they both have some of the greatest television scores ever conceived, just listen to this:

If you liked all those shows I sincerely recommend you check Gravity Falls. I'm all for those shows you mentioned. That few weeks I got from Cartoon Network was the most time I've used just sitting and watching tv in a long time :P

Not sure if Animes count, but Death Note, Code Geass, Naruto (original), and Darker Than Black.
As for cartoons I love Avatar and the Legend of Korra.
But as for my all time favorite it has to be Invader Zim.

I'll try it. My problem with Disney Channel shows is that I just assume that pretty much every show is a tween sitcom!

I don't watch many cartoons nowadays. I do enjoy the old Tom and Jerry cartoons, and the old Disney cartoons. Spongebob Squarepants will forever be fantastically fabulous, and Dragon Ball Z is still cool as hell.

I like Adventure Time, although I've only properly watched 1 or 2 episodes (I should watch more though). My sibling also showed me Regular Show, which is pretty cool too.

When I was younger I watched a lot more, stuff like Hey Arnold!, Rugrats, Rocko's Modern Life, and half the stuff Ryan mentioned. I kind of feel like watching Samurai Jack again.

If you have Netflix, Warner Bros. is about to release of a ton of CN shows, Adventure Time and Regular Show included. A lot of the Nicktoons you mentioned are already on there, and Johnny Bravo, Dexter's Lab, Samurai Jack, Powerpuff Girls, and other are coming to Netflix in April.
