Good list! I love a lot of the classics. I was never too fond of Tom and Jerry because I always liked Pixie and Dixie and Jinxie better. I've never like the Simpsons. But your list is well thought out and I enjoyed the colorful pictures.

Nice list. I used to love watching Flintstones and Popeye as a kid. I also enjoyed watching Dexter's Lab and the Rugrats back then.
