    Why don't they make cartoons with talking animals anymore?

    Like This Thread!
    So I've been thinking back to the cartoons of my childhood, back when cartoons used to be really great, and I realize there aren't that many shows with talking animals anymore.

    Not only did we get the great WB shorts like Loony Tunes and all its incarnations, (as well as Animaniacs, Tiny Toons, etc.) but there were also a lot of great action cartoons like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and all its knock-offs.

    Is it just me or are there a lot less cartoons about talking animals nowadays?

    I think that there are enough talking animal shows. Recent ones include:

    GoGoRiki
    Biker Mice from Mars
    Sonic X
    TMNT
    Pat and Stan
    Skunk Fu
    Viva Pinata
    Loonatics Unleashed
    Turbo Dogs


    And there are others, too.

    Which reminds me, someone needs to bring back Sam and Max! They're talking animals, right?

    Well, they're a dog and a rabbit (although I think Max refers to himself as a "Lagomorph", whatever that is, in Sam & Max hit the Road) so I'd say they qualify.

    These do not count since they're re-boots of old properties.

    Viva Pinata
    Loonatics
    Viva Pinata was technically not an animal show, and Loonatics only lasted 2 seasons.

    The subject of having talking animals has been so overdone, that's why most companies are trying to make new shows involving human characters. Plus they're probably trying to avoid a new flurry of furries coming up the pipe in another talking animal series or movie is released.
    I don't need a signature. I'm too cool for one. LOL
