    in other words laser weapons, they might as well add cars and spaceships too.

    Spaceships maybe, but not cars. I think that robot horses would be better.

    How about Lucky Luke? There's been three different series based on this european comic character (okay technically two, the third is a spinoff featuring the Dalton brothers), several animated movies and even two live-action adaptations. It's pretty unknown in the US unfortunately.

    I'd like to see a classic western cartoon without the sci-fi and modern stuff like cars and computers.

    I agree. Set it in a historical western setting with a twist of fantasy, aome hand to hand combat, gunplay, and we're good to go!

    I was about to mention that and Bravestarr, but then I saw others already did:



    I think traditional westerns just don't play as well with the young kids right now. And the adolescents for that matter.

    After Disney took a $200 million wash on The Lone Ranger, and then also John Carter which had some western elements, I wouldn't expect any animated westerns for quite some time.

    Well, aside from Disney Junior's Sheriff Callie’s Wild West.

    Given a large number of real-life cowboys during the Old West were African-American, including Black characters in the series wouldn't be out of place. As for racism, I assume either it'd be ignored, downplayed, or handled appropriately (as in some modern/recent-ish westerns... Fox's "Brisco County Jr." in the early 90s for one).

    Still, doesn't seem likely to see a Western (comedic or dramatic) anytime soon. Despite literally every other form of fiction before the 70s being cowboy-related (or so it feels), Westerns have fallen off in popularity since then. More likely to see "a special Western episode" of some typical modern TV cartoon instead (such as that SpongeBob episode set in the old west).
