For me probably Scooby-Doo and The Muppets.





Next on the list are, in no particular order, are Spongebob, Rugrats, Laff-a-lympics, Space Ghost.

"Thundarr the Barbarian" was the greatest cartoon ever. It was a kids cartoon that was not very kid friendly. It could never be made in today's "PC" cancel culture. I loved it.

Difficult question!

As a kid, I grew up with and love "classic" Nickelodeon cartoons - Rugrats, Hey Arnold, Doug, etc.

As a dad of an almost 2.5 year old (and a 4 month old), I watch a lot of Daniel Tiger, Super Why, Wiggles, etc.

I like Daniel Tiger pretty well.

So, how did I forget Looney Tunes?

The afternoon classics of Duck Tales and various other Disney afternoon toons.

RE: What is your favorite cartoon or children's show?
There are many I liked as a kid in the 80s/90s and it would be hard to pick a few favorites, but I my favorite now as an adult watching cartoons with my own kiddos is Peppa Pig.

RE: What is your favorite cartoon or children's show?
Every child should have a chance to see cartoons from the Golden Age of Cartoons--roughly 30's to early 60's of last century. The Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVDs are the best because you get to see a decent survey of everything, and they also include a lot of background on those who created them in their Special features, plus Wartime (WWII) cartoons that are quite interesting.

The Jetson's Season 1 is terrific (in Seasons 2 and 3, the stories are dumbed down and not nearly as good and the animation is worse, so I wouldn't bother with those.)




Hong Kong Phooety features Scatman Caruthers' voice and is sarcastically hilarious:




here's Sublime's take on it:

Artist: Sublime
DVD from box set: Everything Under the Sun
Song: "Hong Kong Phooey Theme"
2006 Geffen Records

TMNT, Duck Dales, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Thundercats, Dennis the Menace, X-Men. That Fox lineup after school every day between 88/92 was hard AF.

Fraggle Rock was pretty good, back in the day.

I was also a big into the Smurfs.

But yeah, old school Looney Tunes is the best. Although, some of that stuff wouldn't make it past the PC police, nowadays.

RE: What is your favorite cartoon or children's show?
For dialog it's hands down The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. The kids had no clue what he was talking about most of the time and neither did most of the adults. The puns and quips came fast. Here's one I'll try to recite from memory:
Rocky: Something's driving Captain Peach Fuzz insane.
Bullwinkle: Well it's a short trip.

It also had the iconic voice of William Conrad as the narrator and cold war villains Boris and Natasha. In its early incarnation the show used hand puppets between the cartoons. On one Sunday night, Bullwinkle told kids to pull the knob off the TV and throw it away so they would already be tuned in for next week. Kids all over America did and NBC took a lot of heat.

Enjoy




For production, music, sound, artwork and storylines, I have to go with The Adventures of Jonny Quest. Here's a good documentary about how it was produced and how in the end they couldn't afford the weekly production cost, if you have a couple of hours or more to kill.
