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.
