Wihtout an specific rating:
Gargoyles- One of the best we could have
Reboot- A masterpiece, that ended in a huge cliffhanger
Thunder cats- Great action and plot!
I present to you, the 10 greatest cartoons of all time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1) Hanna-Barbera's World of Super Adventure (80's-retro 60's)
You never knew what you where going to get! Bird man, Space Ghost, Shazzan, Mightor, Moby Dick, The Galaxy Trio, Dino Boy, The Herculiods, The Impossibles, Frienkenstien Jr. and without a doubt the best super hero cartoon ever made, the Fantastic four!!! The intro to this series stands as the greatest intro of all time! So many different villians and the universe was always at stake. I ask, how many other cartoon adventure series had this many true classic heroes presented in them! How awesome would this be if Hanna-Barbera put out a dvd deluxed boxed set with every episode and bonus extra's in it???? This was a classic all the way!
2) He-man and the M...asters of the Universe (80's)
This timeless classic is a dvd must!! No cartoon had better thought and action produced stories! There was a "calmness" about this cartoon with the world, music, colors, voices, etc. that kids and parents both got into. There is something special about a cartoon that can be watched today and still remains fresh.
3) Super-friends (70's-80's)
This includes all the episodes and series to this cartoon. Sure it was campy as hell and at times so freakin wacky, but when you where a kid watching this you had so many of your favorite heroes in action on a Saturday morning while you were eating your cereal! When Flash or Green Lantern showed up it was awesome! And how could anyone forget the Challenge of the Super-Friends and the Intergalactic Guardians, which are the best this series had to offer. You can still laugh your head off watching this comedy...err, cartoon.
4) Spider-man (60's)
It's now coming to dvd because of demand for Spider-man! There can be no doubt that this was the best Spider-man cartoon ever because of how classic it is! The theme song is also legendary!!
5) Thundarr the Barbarian (80's)
What a concept, and it even made sense!! Now that 2000 has passed it never happened, but we got an awesome cartoon out of it! With Jack Kirby and Alex Toth doing the character designs you got remarkable heroes, villians and landscapes. This cartoon also stands the test of time, watch it today and it is still intriging!
6) The Incredible Hulk (90's)
Okay, how could my name be the Hulk without a Hulk cartoon on the list? Well the first season is the best Hulk cartoon ever made (and his clothes didn't come back)! It remained true to the Hulk character and story with minor tweekings. Slugfest, rouges, and heart-ache was what made this grrrrreat!! Sure when the second season came around with the Gray-Hulk mind crap and She-Hulk became a starring character everything went sour (very sour)! But season 1 remains well...incredible!!!
7) Fantastic Four (90's)
Here's a first! Season 1 was okay at best, but when season 2 came around, this series shipped into high gear!! The stories became better and so didn't the animation! Hulk vs Thing!! Thor vs Ego!! The best since Hanna-Barbera's toon from the 60's. Thank gawd no Herby the robot crap!!
8) Superman: The Animated Series (90's)
The best of Superman solo! It stayed true to the character and history. With great animation, stories, characters, etc. it was like reading the comic. How could anyone forget the awesome Green Lantern episode where Supes fights Sinestro...it was awesome!!
9) Batman: The Animated Series (90's)
The best Batman solo!! This was a fantastic cartoon that made Batman "Dark" again! What an impact it made!! Sooooooo many great episodes, just like reading the comics! Who could forget the episode where Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns Batman shows up. I got goose bumps...
10) Justices League (2000's)
This cartoon took the elements of Batman and Superman and made them a team with other classic heroes!! Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman and others. I DO have a problem with Jon Stewart as Green Lantern instead of Hal Jordan or Kyle Ranier and Hawkgirl instead of Hawkman for political correct issues. But this is still an aboslutley amazing cartoon that stays true to the comic and the "Animated Series" line.
