Some of the ones depicted on our new banner were pretty good, I think, although some of the ones I've seen may be a little odd for someone of my demographic. For example, I've seen Power Puff Girls and enjoyed it! But remember, I have daughters.

Hey, what are Daffy Duck and Tom & Jerry doing on this banner? Were new cartoons featuring these characters still being made in the 90s?

I remember very much liking Street Sharks. For some reason, I'm a big fan of human/fish hybrids. The current Aquaman comic has featured such creatures and I'm all in.

My nephew loved Sponge Bob and despite being almost 17 he would still count himself a fan. (Hmm, I guess that means Sponge Bob continued into this century.)

Does our banner bring back fond memories for you?

I think there was an attempt at bringing in new Tom and Jerry episodes in the 90's but cannot recall, I far more into:

1. Spider-Man the Animated Series: okay seriously WHY is this not on DVD/BLuray in the states yet????


2. Batman the Animated Series plus Batman Beyond, Superman TAS and the eventual Justice LEague

3. 90's X-men Animated series. To this day I still think it was the best animated version of the Phoenix Sagas.

I noticed in PPP's thread, someone posted a picture from cartoon network that was loaded with 60's cartoon characters. I guess since CN was showing them in the 90's, they'd count. I know The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner show was probably my favorite Saturday Morning show in the 70's.

As for the ones on the banner,

I like:
The Simpsons
SpongeBob
Ren And Stimpy
Beavis And Butt-Head
Johnny Bravo
Dexter's Lab
South Park
The Tick

I kind of like:
Rocko's Modern Life
Daria
Power Puff Girls
Inspector Gadget
Rugrats

I disike:
Ed, Edd and Eddy
Hey Arnold
Doug
Arrrgh! Real Monsters
Cow And Chicken
Recess(Is that the one with the kid with the football shaped head who's beneath Patrick?)
Wallace And Gromit

I'm indifferent to the rest.

I love the Superhero cartoons, Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, Fantastic Four, Hulk, Iron Man, X-Men, Justice League.

I remember liking Animaniacs. Shows that I liked one or two episodes of but never really watched were Histeria, Earthworm Jim and Freakazoid.

Wow Wow Wubbzy is a 2000's cartoon.

Recess has the kid with red baseball cap above the 3DSamm logo and the other kids around him. I liked Recess, I was like 25 when I saw it, I worked at a TV station and ran all these kids shows. Come to think of it, I didn't start there until late '99 so was this show even on in the '90s?

Was Spongebob around in the '90s? I guess they've lasted a while!

Of course that's true of South Park, The Simpsons, and more. I liked those two.

Ren & Stimpy I liked to a point, sometimes it went a little far with the gross-out or stupidity. Did you see Krikfalusi's follow-up The Ripping Friends? That was a little out of control.

I really liked The Tick, probably my favorite. Beavis and Butt-Head. I liked Liquid Television and Aeon Flux, not really in the same territory as most of these.

When I worked at the TV station we ran a block of Disney shows with Buzz Lightyear, Tarzan and Recess, which were all solid. Some others that I didn't pay as much attention to (Pepper Ann, The Weekenders?)

For some reason I never got into Batman or Superman or even Spider-Man. I think I didn't have the channel which carried them. Back in the old days I was one of the people who only got the 3 channels and Fox wasn't one of them, I only saw Fox at my friends' houses. For that reason I didn't even see much Simpsons until like 7 or 8 seasons in. One of the local stations did carry Married With Children, though!

Going back to the '80s I loved The Real Ghostbusters, I watched a lot of Voltron and Tranzor Z out there on the UHF dial somewhere. G.I. Joe and Transformers. I did also catch onto Beast Wars, the Transformers successor in the '90s. Loved it. Didn't expect to.

Reruns of The Flintstones and Scooby-Doo were enjoyed. Never saw as much Jetsons.

Had a local morning show (The Ramblin' Rod Show) that ran the old Looney Tunes, Woody Woodpecker, Chilly Willy, Heckle and Jeckle, Chip 'N Dale, and Popeye!

Now that cartoon did set the bar rather high for telling Transformers stories. Beast Machines almost matched it but it got way to spiritual for a TF cartoon.

Car Robots, Armada, and the other 2 that came after it were horrible.

Transformers Prime...okay this one almost reached the excellent story telling of Beast Wars.

That must've been a pretty cool job.
I know I watched Recess at least a couple of times.
So who's the character below Patrick and above CatDog? I know I saw that cartoon before but I can't remember it's name.

Edit- That's Hey Arnold. I listed it as a cartoon I didn't like but I forgot the character. I guess I never gave it much of a chance.

I kind of liked the spiritual aspect of Beast Machines. Same with Battlestar Galactica.

Religious robots click with me.

Beast Wars was phenomenal! Even the story editors said back in the day that it was more of a "scifi show" than a "TF show." And while the idea of "technorganic" was interesting, it felt wrong to be used with TFs. Hasbro should have just let Larry DiTillio and Bob Forward come up with a way to continue from BW, instead of having BMac.

Car Robots is the name of a Japanese TF show from 2000-2001 (their first made TF anime show after their Beast Wars Neo show). The English dub was "Transformers: Robots In Disguise" (not to be confused with the current, post-Prime series), and was released 2001-2002, which is my 4th fav TF show (G1, BW, and then Prime). After that was Armada (Micron Legend in Japan), Energon (Superlink in Japan), and Cybertron (Galaxy Force in Japan), all of which were bad, yeah (although Energon was a small improvement over Armada, and Cybertron was somewhat better than the first two). After that, we got more good American shows again, first Animated, then Prime, Rescue Bots, and the new Robots In Disguise.

In total agreement.
