I was wondering if I could get some Giant Bomber's opinion on this: what is everyone's favorite animated TV show? It doesn't have to currently be showing, it just has to have existed at one point. Being one of those damn "born on 1990" kids, I can never appreciate the cheeze of Transformers or M.A.S.K. Therefore, I gotta give it to Clone HIgh, with The Simpsons in second. (Instert "The Simpsons sucks now" comment here). POST AWAY!

You can't go wrong with South Park.  
 
If you want to go nostalgic, I can still watch episodes of The Rugrats.

Futurama!

#5 Posted by Gamer_152 (14050 posts) -

Love Futurama but I have to go with The Simpsons. Absolutely classic stuff.

Really tough decision. Can I mention three? Though I spent more time than I could count watching the Batman and Spider-Man animated series, Samurai Jack is still my favorite cartoon of all time.

The Simpsons. A bad episode of The Simpsons is still better than most things. Like pizza.

FLCL, short and sweet.

#9 Posted by EuanDewar (4688 posts) -

Simpsons season 3-9 is fantastic but most since then has been childhood killing in terms of quality. South Park is probably the most consistently funny show around today.

#10 Posted by DonChipotle (2693 posts) -

Nowadays? Adventure Time

#11 Posted by Enigma777 (6057 posts) -

Beast Wars

#12 Posted by JakeTaylor (309 posts) -

I like a bit of South Park. 

#13 Posted by ShiftyMagician (2129 posts) -

I'm not sure how wide your scope of animated TV show is, but I will go out and say I'll toss between either Cowboy Bebop or Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.  However a recent surprise favourite for me has to go to Gainax's crazy and nonsensical Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt.  What a weird and crazy ride that was.

Everyone here is clearly forgetting the animated masterpiece that is Samurai Jack.

I sure did.  Thank you for reminding me of that awesome show.  Oh yea just to name some more, Angry Beavers, Dexter's Laboratory, Courage the Cowardly Dog and Invader Zim.

My favorite anime is Cowboy Bebop.
 
My favorite western animated show is King of the Hill. Most people I've talked to seem to think it's boring, but I think it's one of the funniest shows on T.V.

Samurai Jack was pretty fricking awesome.  I may have to go home and watch some tonight now.

My favorite show that is on air is Futurama, but my all time favorite is Animaniacs.

#20 Posted by FrankCanada97 (4039 posts) -

Any cartoon show that had "Steven Spielberg Presents" in its name.

#21 Posted by PenguinDust (12438 posts) -

For old school animation, a lot of folks on GB love Ducktales, Darkwing Duck and Rocko's Modern Life.  I personally love Thundarr the Barbarian, The Herculoids and Josie & the Pussycats.  There is also a strong fanbase for the Pokemon opening song and the Poke-rap. 
 
For more adult fare, Futurama is thought of very highly as well as Venture Brothers and South Park (still).  I like the first two at least, but along with Family Guy have abandoned South Park.  I've been a life long Simpsons fan, but even I don't watch it on Sundays anymore.  Time to let that one go, FOX. 
 
The best animated shows on TV today are Phineas & Ferb (DIS), Adventure Time (CN), Archer (FX), and Futurama (CC).   If you are familiar with anime, there was a show called Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt last year that is also worth mentioning.  It looks like an American TV cartoon but it's about as crude and raunchy as they come.  Hilarious through and through.

Courage the Cowardly Dog is really really good, batman: the animated series was fantastic, ED EDD AND EDDY DAWG

#31 Posted by DeShawn2ks (1051 posts) -

My current favorites are Futurama, South Park, and The Boondocks.

#32 Posted by Underachiever007 (2468 posts) -

It's either Samurai Jack or Cowboy Bebop.

#33 Edited by SMTDante89 (2541 posts) -

Kid: Rocko's Modern Life (probably still my favorite of all time)
Teen: Ed, Edd 'n Eddy
Now: Phineas and Ferb
 
And that's if I pick just one for each, there's plenty of others I could list, I grew up on cartoons/animated shows

#34 Posted by alternate (2679 posts) -

For new stuff.  Venture Bros and Archer are pretty funny.  Boondocks was great while it lasted.

#35 Posted by Consaw (249 posts) -

New: Venture Bros., Frisky Dingo, American Dad.  
Old: The Simpsons, Darkwing Duck, Animaniacs.

#36 Posted by MysteriousBob (6272 posts) -

Batman the Animated Series is the greatest cartoon of all time. Its lack of presence here disturbs me. 
 
The other Bruce Timm DC shows, Futurama, pre-season 9 Simpsons and Dexter's Lab are also great. 
 
While I'm on topic- screw Nickelodeon. Every cartoon they have ever produced sucked.

I disagree, I think Danny Phantom is excellent :P
 
also the fuckin last airbender is amazing, but that's kinda anime so I didn't count it
#38 Posted by Subject2Change (2966 posts) -

Home Movies or Aqua Teen

#39 Posted by spankingaddict (2655 posts) -

Family Guy by a LONG shot.

Ducktales. Nah, I'm shitting you. That's my second favourite.  
 
I used to love loads of old 90's cartoons. I like Cowboy Bebop, too, but that's anime. Does it count?
#41 Posted by Deeveeus (479 posts) -

Futurama, Simpsons and American Dad for the adult side (AD has gotten SOOO much better than it started. I think it's because that hack McFarlane is busy with Family Guy, so writers actually revolve this show around plot and character...what a concept! FG was the same when it was great in the first 3 seasons) 
 
My favs as a kid were Batman the Animated Series, TMNT (90's one), Tom and Jerry and Loony Tunes (my Dad is a paramedic and used to be at home on call a lot, so I spent a lot of afternoons with him learning about the old greats!)

This. Amazing show. 
 
  
#43 Posted by Djeffers03 (2545 posts) -

Has to be Family Guy. It's unbelievably funny. 
 
If I was 10 I would have without a doubt said the Simpsons but they're shit now.

Tough to choose. Probably something created by Rumiko Takahashi with an original run in the eighties, like Urusei Yatsura or Maison Ikkoku.

#46 Posted by Burzmali (452 posts) -

"Favorite" for me means I can repeatedly watch almost any episode, any time, and still enjoy it. Fitting that definition are Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Rocko's Modern Life, and Home Movies. I really like Archer, Family Guy, and South Park, but I've never felt the need to watch any of the episodes more than once.

#47 Posted by Daveyo520 (6651 posts) -

Now The Venture Brothers. When I was a kid, Batman.

#48 Posted by Psykhophear (939 posts) -

80's and 90's stuff are the best. 
 

  • The Real Ghostbusters
  • DuckTales
  • Garfield and Friends
  • Johnny Bravo
  • Dexter's Lab
  • The Simpsons
  • GI Joe
  • Transformers
  • The Simpsons

Glad I haven't. I also like South Park, Invader Zim, 6teen, Kaput & Zosky, The Simpsons and Futurama.

South Park, fo' sho'. 
Hate Family Guy but kinda like American Dad.
