    Superman

    A tough one that I had to wrestle with.
    The art work is far superior in the Superman shorts. I love the colors and modern designs. These are cartoons to go to school on.

    It’s remarkable what Tartakovsky was able to do such a fine job with what he had to work with. What, what he had to work with was STAR WARS! That should be as easy as peanut butter and jelly (pies are hard, you try to make one). With the prequels the film franchise were sorely lacking insight into what made Star Wars so awesome. Genndy managed more character development into Anakin, Obi Wan, the Force and he did it with an incredible economy of time and dialog. It was so much more then top-notch kick-ass action.
    These are also cartoons to go to school on.

    So, how to decide…
    I guess that these Superman shorts are still as enjoyable today as they ever were.

    An easy one for me, Superman. A classic series of shorts...

    Exo-Squad, a very underrated show compared to its contemporaries, B:TAS and Gargoyles. It dealt with some very heavy issues, even given us a close allegory of Hitler and the Nazi regime, and had a fleshed out cast of characters. It gets my vote.

    My vote goes to Exo-Squad, a show I remember watching when I was younger, though I haven't actually watched an episode in a long time, so I can't comment if it still holds up or not, or on everything that happened during the show, but I remember I used to like it. Still, I'll give it my vote because I've never watched the Star Trek animated series.

    Haven't seen ExoSquad, but I'm totally giving this one to Star Trek. I'm old enough to remember when this was on TV (though it might have already been in reruns at the time) and it was like heaven to me: more Star Trek (which was also in re-runs by then) but it was also a cartoon which made it at least 10 times better. I had a lot of good things to say about the show when it came out on DVD a few years ago, and even dug into a lot of the technical tricks and cost-cutting measures Filmation used on it that worked in the show's favor (especially since the original show was never exactly known for big budget effects).

    I've heard really good things about ExoSquad, but it'd have to be pretty seriously amazing to be able to compete.

    Exo-Squad. I know I saw Trek as a kid when Nick aired reruns of it, but I just never got into it.

    I'm pretty sure that I never saw either one of these shows. Although, ExoSquad sounds a bit more familiar to me and it sounds fairly interesting, so I'll vote for that show. I know that I never saw Star Trek: The Animated Series and I've never been into Star Trek in general either, so that's more in ExoSquad's favor.

    Because it's good Trek and the alien at navigation was an uncanny look-a-like for a friend of my brother.

    ... I never even knew either cartoon series even existed before now.

    Star Trek wins because at least I know the franchise.

    Youtube says the Exosquad intro is unnavailable in my country (USA). Here's one that I found works. I still vote for Star Trek.

    Bah...well, that video was working earlier (it's just the intro to the series). Thanks for the link though.

    EDIT: I was about to refer people to the Hulu website, as it had the entire Exosquad series on there for free, but I guess the emphasis is on the word "HAD" - apparently it's now gone from Hulu's website?!? Oh, what evil forces are at work here?!?

    I really enjoyed both but I just feel as though Exo Squad was doing more.
