    I felt bad for this sub-Forum Category cuz there was nothing in it.  So for you 70s/80s kids (and those with Boomerang), what is your favorite cartoon and what do you think was the dumbest cartoon?

    For me
    Favorite - Star Blazers (yes, dorky, but so am i)
    Dumbest - The Adventures of Scooby & Scrappy Doo (hated Scrappy Doo)

      Favorite - Laff-A-Lympics, Dumbest - The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo

      I actually like Scrappy-Doo, but if you want an obnoxious character, try Flim-Flam from The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo! There's that one episode when he cracks his whip, makes it snow outside the Doo's home, and makes Scrappy and Scooby-Doo, Shaggy Rogers, and Daphne Ann Blake angry at him!

    I remember snatches of the theme song. "We're leaving planet earth...to save the human race, our Starblazers!" Along with "Speed Racer" this show was one of my first introductions to animae.

    Pink Panther was great because the humor was surreal and sophisticated.  Scooby Doo seemed like a project for burned-out writers toward the end, and yes, Scrappy was horrible.  My brothers used to jeer him with me.

    The dumbest cartoon wasn't even a cartoon..  I vaguley remember when they started using real people in shows instead of cartoons on Saturday Mornings..  One of them was  a show called Electra woman and Dyna girl.. My sister loved it I hated it..

    Best cartoon is and will always be Bugs Bunny...

    I loved Justice League! 

    Scrappy Doo is a poster child for why to spay and neuter your pets.
