Top Ten Cartoons

May 28, 2013

Here is my list of my top ten favourite animated television programs.

10. Transformers – Looking back, this show was just a long series of commercials for toys. But it still holds a special place in my heart.


9. Duckman – A duck who is a private detective and a single father. Too bad he’s also a pervert. Makes for good TV though.


8. Rocket Robin Hood – This show is the epitome of so-bad-it’s-good. It is just Robin Hood in the future. For those who have seen this and the 1960s Spider-Man cartoon, yes, they do share background paintings and in some rare cases, foreground animation.


7. Batman the Animated Series – This 1990s series portrayed Batman as stern, mysterious but likeable.


6. Ren and Stimpy – The controversy around this show notwithstanding, this show was hilarious. Were they gay? Was Stimpy a really a woman? Who cares!


5. Batman Beyond – Bruce Wayne teaching a new guy to be Batman. And it was done really well and as a proper continuation of the Animated Series.


4. Scooby Doo, Where Are You? – Forget all the stuff, the original program about a group of preppie amateur detectives, a stoned guy and his dog. Just give me a scene where they’re all chasing or being chased by a ghost in a hallway with a half dozen doors. Or a giant sandwich being eaten in a single swallow.


3. King of the Hill – Watch the episode where Bobby learns self-defence and you tell me this show isn’t great.


2. Futurama – The ultimate sendup of science fiction.


1. What do you think?


I’m sorry. Were you expecting Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling?

    Wow, some great ones I forgot about here! But…no Looney Tunes? Seriously? or are these only half-hour animated shows ala Saturday morning?


    Merrie melodies and looney tunes were produced for theatrical release and then butchered for television distribution. The new series is okay but I’ve only seen a few episodes.

    Didn’t Dangermouse make it across the Atlantic?


    Looks vaguely familiar.

    No Family Guy or South Park? Also weren’t you a big fan of the Critic?


    Nope nope nope.

    Rocket Robin Hood! Forgot about that!

    If Simpsons hadn’t been #1, I would have had to go make myself some coffee so that I could spit it out on my screen.

    p.s. Thanks for the hilarious comment on my last post. It made me laugh out loud and cheered me up on a dull, dreary morning.


    You’re welcome

    I have patterned my life after the teachings of Krusty the Clown…


    He has small feet like all good-hearted people

    Awesome, I totally forgot about several of these. No Pink Panther?


    A little too trippy

    I always loved The Flintstones!


    The Flintstones weren’t a cartoon. They were REAL!

    I grew up on the Flintstones and Jetsons, Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. Those were Saturday morning staples in my neck of the woods.

    Around the time our daughter was born, Dane got into this one I absolutely loathed, so you might like it. It was called Kaput and Zosky. It would make that Hulk Hogan cartoon up there look amazing, I’m sure.

    My son loved one called Martin Mystery for a while too.
