My mum took me to Watership Down when I was 5, thinking, hey, it's a cartoon about rabbits.

I never understood the concept of a steeplechase. I mean, go to a church, climb up the stairs (or use a ladder), and touch the steeple. Pretty easy chase. It's not like it's going anywhere...

Dinobot: BronyMedic: And they were racist and sexist as all get-out. The World War II Propaganda ones are especially hillarious, and will never be seen on TV.

/Slap a jap!

I remember the donald duck one where he reads mein kampf


Der Fuehrer's Face. It was one of the propaganda cartoons Disney was commissioned to make during WWII. A lot of people who haven't seen them think they were racist but they were actually making fun of Hitler and the Nazis, or showing how evil they were. In this one Donald wakes up at the end and it was all a dream, then he salutes old glory, patriotic fireworks, etc.

The sad truth is that in the first half of the 20th century racism was culturally acceptable and considered amusing and entertaining when depicted on screen. WW2 started to change some of those attitudes but it still took almost 20 years for the country to come to its senses.

BronyMedic: Original Beavis and Butthead was awesome, too. :(


I've got the new show a few times and it has changed surprisingly little. It would be hard to tell it from the old show except the animation is cleaner and in high definition and where they once watched early 90s music videos they now make fun of crap like Jersey Shore (though they still show videos occasionally).

I kind of wish they would bring back Daria, but since all the characters graduated from college I'm not sure where they could go with it now. Maybe it's best left alone.

1978 was one of the lowest points ever for animation. Filmation's shiatty, cheap, static style was the norm for cartoons, and the shows weren't even as good as the 80s commercials that followed them.

That also qualifies as "adult" if you throw in cursing. Just look at comic books, which are more "adult" than ever!

This. Even as a kid I noticed how terrible the animation was back then. Shows like Star Trek and He-Man where they would recycle the same scenes over and over in every episode, or worse in shows like the Planet of the Apes cartoon which were little more than static slide shows. I do like many of the cartoons from the late 70s but saying that the animation was decent is stretching the truth.

Amen. Right now is a golden age - even without Saturday mornings. The quality of the cartoons kids have today is incredible.

The Brave Little Toaster cannot be a kid's movie.

Seriously. There's some really, REALLY mature themes of death and mortality in there. And some of the scenes are High Octane Nightmare fuel.

You know what was a really, really undersold movie? Titan A.E. Love that movie.

Well there's ALWAYS gonna be mindless tripe. But seriously, top to bottom, kids cartoons are fantastic. Phineas and Ferb, Adventure Time, MLP:FiM, the Transformers series, and on the younger side, Backyardigans? Damn, those are good cartoons. Growing up in the early/mid 80's I got those late-70's castoffs, a bunch of forgettable Hanna-Barbera bullshat. This rocks in comparison.

Backyardigans and Wonderpets were favorites of my kiddo when he was a bit younger. He's into MLP and Phineas and Ferb now. Most of the Hanna-Banana stuff sucked. Adventure Time and Transformers are bit more rough than I'd like to expose my kid to at the moment, he has problems with being too rough with other kids and those two get him really ramped-up. Mebbe when he's a bit older. I'd also mention the PBS lineup is pretty good stuff, with Dinosaur Train and Super Why and Sid and Word Girl. I know Sid irritates some adults, but it teaches science and interest therein to kids, so it's worth your irritation.

I miss all of the awesome cartoons (just the sheer variety ALONE was win-tastic) back from the late-80's to about 1997. We had real Saturday morning cartoon blocks on TV that were totally worth getting up for, the Simpsons were in their prime for much of that time period, MTV had Beavis & Butthead, Disney had their animation 'revival' going on in the theaters (with such new classics as the Lion King, Aladdin, the Little Mermaid, Lion King, Beauty & The Beast, etc.), anime was still hard to find (special order mostly as few places carried more than 5-7 titles - ph, and it was called 'Japanimation' - and we copied the hell out of those few VHS tapes of 'Akira' or 'Ninja Scroll' that anyone had), and we had the Disney Afternoon/Warner Brothers Afternoon (all hail Animanics, Batman: TAS & Tiny Toons) to fill in the gaps during the weekdays.

Twas a GLORIOUS time to be a kid, a video gamer and a lover of animation.

Yep, the Saturday morning variety was much better not so long ago. Now the NBC lineup is about 4 shows and they run twice, and the only CBS cartoon almost worth watching is the one with the dogs who drive race cars. I used to have to argue with my sister every Saturday because there were good cartoons on all three stations.

I caught the end of the Saturday Morning cartoons... ABC still had the Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show, Fox had X-Men, Spider-Man, and The Tick, and the afternoon blocks of cartoons were still in full swing, with Fox having both the Disney block and Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, and Batman.

The early 90s were the end of the classic era of Saturday mornings. But, Cartoon Network had some great stuff in the late 90s, with both the classic cartoons and their originals of the time.
