What is your favorite all-time cartoon?
It's a question posed to us every so often but we never think about it enough. If you had a moment, what is your very favorite cartoon of all time?
Your questions are always so fun to answer!!
I'm a massive fan of all of the Looney Toons cartoons with Roadrunner and Wile E Coyote and can watch those constantly. Probably these cartoons as loved the hand drawing, the humour and the fact they are timeless.
If I'm talking about what cartoon have I enjoyed lots with other people for years then probably Family Guy - the random humour cracks me up a lot.
While I grew up on Bugs Bunny, Popeye, Wile E. Coyote (sp.?), etc. I can't say any of these would be my favorite. I would have to go into comic strips, if that counts in your question, and say that Calvin and Hobbes are my all time favorite. The way Calvin just pops between reality and make-believe in the blink of an eye and all of his adventures gets me laughing just thinking about it.
My absolute favorite cartoon of all-time has got to be the 1958 short "Robin Hood Daffy". I like pretty much all of the old Looney Tunes, but this one tops them all. "Yoicks! and away!"
I loved any of the Disney cartoons. But my all time favorite I think was the Flintstones, and then the Jetsons. When my kids were growing up, I enjoyed the Muppet Babies and Chip and Dale as the Rescue Rangers.
I have three:
As a child - Garfield & Friends. I absolutely LOVED U.S. Acres animated.
Later - Rugrats
Now - Invader Zim
Nick had my attention with Rugrats and Zim.
I liked a lot of different cartoons, but I have to go with Johnny Bravo! I loved that cartoon, probably because his personality so closely resembled mine!! lol
I agree with Souther29 about the Looney Toons, and the Roadrunner/Coyote ones. I will also add the original Tom & Jerry ones.
As for more "recent" ones, The Simpsons (at least the first seasons) are among the best shows ever. American Dad has been pretty consistent also.
I really enjoyed the old Hannah Barbara cartoons, such as Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGras, Pixie and Dixie, Yogi Bear and Boo Boo and the rest of the crow.
The Warner Bros. cartoons with Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porkey Pig and Elmer Fudd were all funny, but my view about them has changed over the years, when a friend of mind pointed out that most of the characters had speech impediments. Many of us,including me, were often referred to by the name of the cartoon character because of our impediments. I know it was not intentional and some would say we over-reacted. But, you would not have that today.
I love all the old Hanna-Barbera cartoons. The same goes for Looney Tunes. I enjoyed Tom & Jerry and Popeye as well. My all time favorite is the Flintstones.
Looney Toons is the top of my list. To me it set the standard for future cartoon greatness. I also liked Nicktoons growing up- especially Hey Arnold, Rugrats, and the Wild Thornberrys.
I'd have to say Star Wars The Clone Wars. I know, I'm an adult, and what am I doing watching cartoons, right? But I grew up watching Star Wars (and it's off-spins the Ewoks, etc). I saw Star Wars Episode IV (the first one) with my dad in the local theater when it was first released. As an adult, I've enjoyed watching the Clone Wars cartoons because they've filled in so much back story for me that I was unaware of with the feature films alone... I always wondered where the characters originated from, their individual backgrounds, etc, and since I never read the comics or the books I never knew. I've found that the Clone Wars has really built up the back story for me into a full universe, much like the Star Trek saga has done for other people.
I also watched all of the Warner Bros cartoons growing up, as well as Popeye and Tom and Jerry, etc, and they will always be favorites to me. My wife watched most of the Disney cartoons growing up, and we have many of those in our collection as well. We really enjoy watching the Pixar movies together nowadays too.
Justice League Unlimited, and Avengers Earths Mightiest heroes.
You ask great questions - for me its Hagar - the under-the-thumb viking! I used to take my Dad's paper just so I could read Hagar - I think he thought I had a genuine interest the news...
Tom and Jerry very entertaining and just a fun cartoon to watch and even in 2013 my kids love the old Tom and Jerry along with the black and white mickey mouse.
Stewie Griffin from Family Guy! I love that little evil guy and his British accent; it's hilarious.
My favorite cartoon of all time would have to be the original "Flinstones" didn't like the movies that came out they really didn't do Fred and the gang justice at all. I was probably around 5yrs. old when I first started watching the Flinstones; I am now 48 and still enjoy watching them when I get the chance. I am still a big kid at heart!
I love watching Tom and Jerry and it is my all time favorite cartoon.
