I love most of the old Nickelodeon cartoons. There was this one show I loved to death, but I've forgot what it's called! I caught on Cartoon Network a year ago....

Gargoyles and Darkwing Duck are some of my favorite cartoons.

Samurai Jack, hands down, is my favorite cartoon of all time. While I absolutely love the old Merrie Melodies cartoons, Looney Tunes, Silly Symphonies, and while I do think they are the best example of short cartoons to date, Samurai Jack is definitely my current favorite. It's better than any other cartoons on TV right now, and it's sad that we may not see more of it. :(

I watched all the kids shows, but nowadays the old shows like Transformers, GI Joe and Thundercats look like crap! They don't hold a flame to the Warner Brothers classics, which will always remain the tops in cartoons. Modern cartoons are so hyperreal, there are few shows with unrealistic body forms and situations that occur without explaination. Artists are limited to representing things as they are, rather than how they could be shown. Like Daffy Duck getting shot point blank and having his beak spin around his head. That just doesn't happen in kids cartoons. Every show is a mindless plot to sell toys. Rather than appease a viewing audience, the shows promote consumerism, instead of having the show disconnected, cartoons are now cross-marketing vehicles for cereals, shoes and little children's underwear. Dora the Explorer, I rebuke thee!

Hmm, I currently like Zim and several adult swim shows (mainly Aqua Teen Hunger Force).

Feel free to take this post with as many grains of salt as necessary.

You have a point. But Transformers, GI Joe and He-Man were made for the sole purpose of marketing.

I think that the first series I ever got into was the original Digimon. It's crazy, I caught an old episode on a kids channel a few weeks ago and was hypnotized. Funny thing is, I don't think I would've gotten into it if it came out now.
Current favorite series is Bebop. Gotta love Edward.

The revised Batman: TAS days (No yellow oval around batsymbol), and Cowboy Bebop. And Clone High was awesome.

I also love the new Teen Titans show, Powerpuff Girls, Clerks: TAS, Spongebob Squarepants, and Big O.

Here's a great flash cartoon series:

In 1999 I fell in love with Cowboy Bebop after watching only one episode. I kind of got pissed when everyone started jumping on the bandwagon in 2002 even though I'd been telling them that they needed to see it for nearly three years, har. Yoko Kanno's ability to score a show is absolutely impecable, and if Macross Plus didn't put her on the map, then this in conjuction with maybe Escaflowne certainly did. The point is that her musically exhibitionistic qualities created a soundtrack that stylistically matched the animation, characters, and stories of the series; it's definitely one of the best animated series' I've ever seen, and to this day it's still my favorite.

I'll never forget the butterflies in my stomach the first time I watched the pause in the fight in "Session 26: The Real Folk Blues - Pt. 2." Man, you could stand a fork in the tension caused by those five seconds...

As a kid i watched and loved every thing. From the vantage of my college years though i have to say Tale Spin is just amazing and Animainiacs/Freakazoid/Pinky and the Brain are just non stop rapid fire, especially animainiacs. Angry Beavers was one of the best.
As for shows still being made, Fillmore on disney channel is weaseling its way into my heart, its not particularly good but it carries itself with a certain dignity.
