    There's been a lot of reboots and revivals, as well as revival TV Movies/Specials happening lately, with more on the way (Like Animaniacs, Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling, The Invader ZIM Movie, and Muppet Babies). I tend to enjoy revivals and reboots. My favorites this decade being DuckTales 2017, Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie, and the new Mickey Mouse shorts, though I have got enjoyment from Teen Titans Go!, Powerpuff Girls 2016, Wabbit, The Tom and Jerry Show, The Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age Smackdown!, and others. Since there will most likely be more on the way.

    What reboots/Revivals/Revival TV Movies/Specials would you like to happen?

    Personally, here's my choices

    Blue's Clues: This was easily one of the most popular shows among 2 - 5 year olds during it's heyday and I think it would work for a good reboot. The show has a simple concept, but it works really well. The show (Especially the Steve Episodes) was something that could attract preschoolers, but parents could watch it with their preschoolers and not get annoyed. I think a reboot would do pretty well in today's day and age with the little kids. I would love to have a Blue's Clues for the new generation and the show has a timeless feel. It really feels like it hasn't aged a single day. If a reboot happens, it most likely will have a different host which I will welcome. It's a true Nick classic in my eyes. At the very least, I would love a TV Special to test the waters.

    Winnie the Pooh: Well there's a new Winnie the Pooh film coming out later this year titled "Christopher Robin". Anyways, I think Winnie the Pooh is the type of franchise that can work in any decade. The series definitely has a timeless feel and the characters are very relatable. I think a new Winnie the Pooh show would be awesome for the new generation. Personally, I would love it for it to be 2D, but I wouldn't mind a CGI Pooh either.

    TaleSpin: DuckTales (2017) seems to be doing pretty well for the channel it's on from what I have seen and if Disney were to do another Disney Afternoon reboot, I think TaleSpin would make for a great one. It's not my favorite Disney Afternoon show (that would be Rescue Rangers), but I think there's potential for a great overarching story and for some new characters to join in on the fun. I think a reboot would be pretty exciting, especially if it's done by people who loved the original growing up, just like DuckTales (2017).

    I'd love to see a revival of Spectacular Spider-Man, no question. What happened to that show was a crime.

    Here's a few sweet reboots/revivals,

    Tattertown - It's pretty awesome/enjoyable with great bizarre over the top wackiness zany comedy, Debbie/Miss Muffet or Muffet the Merciless and the other bizarre characters were great/enjoyable.Its got potential for a series, I know it won't happen, but I wish for it though.

    Fantastic Max - Great underrated classic space adventure comedy series with great potential.Both Max/FX/A.B. Sitter and the villains were great/enjoyable and have Amanda get more major focus for the great reboot.

    Super Mario Brothers - Next to Pac-Man/Sonic the Hedgehog, a reboot of it will be sweet/enjoyable with great comedy/action.Both Daisy, Mallow, Geno, Wario/Waluigi, Boshi, and the new villains to show up will be great as well.

    Beetlejuice - A reboot for it will be sweet, it's great/enjoyable with sweet wacky over the top dark comedy with great bizarre character designs, Beetlejuice, my favorite great funny wacky protagonist and the villains were enjoyable/wacky.Always a huge fan of the series when I was young:D.

    Bonkers - Next to Ducktales 2017, I so want a reboot of it, it's pretty great/enjoyable with great comedy/wackiness/crime-busting action and have new characters/villains to make it worth watching.

    Phantom 2040 - Such an awesome classic superhero action series with a great detailed futuristic setting feel to it with great potential, a reboot of it would be awesome.

    Road Rovers - After 13 episodes, I so love a good revival/continuation for it, the best thing of Kids' WB, its got great action/comedy, the Road Rovers Hunter/Colleen/Blitz/Exile/Shag/Muzzle were great enjoyable protagonists and General Parvo/The Groomer and Zachery Storm were great classic major villains.They'll have great new characters/villains and the Star Rovers need some more major focus as much as they got great potential:D.

    Danny Phantom - After its great ending, I love a great revival/continuation of it with great new action/comedy and great new ghost villains for Danny to fight.

    Aeon Flux. Not in the shorts format, I mean full on season or a movie. Show people that adult animation isn't just crude jokes all the time.

    A Spectacular Spider-Man revival would be fantastic. It's one of the few shows that I think lived up to its hype and it was a shame that it was cancelled. The chances aren't too likely at all for that to happen, but the idea is quite appealing.

    Depending on how the Animaniacs revival goes, I wouldn't mind other WB cartoons being revived. Freakazoid was a fun show that could lend itself to at least a TV special. Tiny Toons would be nice too since I remember liking that quite a bit back in the day.

    I still really want a Static Shock reboot. It was a fun good show and I think it would be fun to explore the characters and concept in a slightly more serious tone than the original series had. At least Static is in Young Justice, so the character isn't forgotten, but a new Static Shock series would be more ideal.

    Similarly, a Batman Beyond revival would be fantastic. It wouldn't necessarily have to be a revival set within the DCAU. It could be set within its own continuity instead with just different versions of Bruce, Terry and other DC characters. A special set within the DCAU would work too though. The original series was good, but I kind of wish it lasted a bit longer. Granted, it's hard to get upset over that when it had two good endings in the form of Return of the Joker and the JLU episode Epilogue, but it would be cool to see something with Batman Beyond again.

    A Gargoyles revival or reboot would definitely be good. I remember watching reruns on Disney Channel back in the day and it was pretty awesome. There would be enough demand for a continuation to work, but I also would be fine if they started from scratch instead. I'm actually somewhat surprised that this hasn't happened given that it is one of the more popular Disney Afternoon cartoons, but it took awhile for the Ducktales reboot to happen too.

    I wouldn't mind a Kim Possible TV special. It was a good series, ran for a pretty good length of time and the ending was satisfying, but I wouldn't mind a special showing Kim and Ron in college. I wouldn't be against a reboot, but I think just going for a TV special would be fine.

    Danny Phantom, but with better-integrated humor and better music.

    An Animated Goosebumps or Are You Afraid of The Dark Reboot. We need more horror shows for kids, and I think animation is a better media to tell scary stories for it's surreal-ness.

    Winnie the Pooh: It’s been a while since we have seen a Pooh series.

    House of Mouse: I would love to see a reboot with newer characters.

    I thought I was the only one who remembered that Ralph Bakshi Christmas special. Good times, man.

    New episodes of Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures would rock too.

    I've always thought it would be great if we got a 4th Rugrats movie (a theatrical movie like the first three) with the original creators and most of the cast involved, only this time it's where the babies and their parents go on vacation in Australia and continues from where the original series left off. For the story, it could focus on Angelica finding out what it really means to be loved by someone, making her first true friend and her gradual transformation from being the bossy, spoiled brat she was in the original series to being more nicer to the babies. New characters would be introduced, including a new villain created specially for the movie, like Rugrats in Paris did, and I also envision the movie have some dark moments, let alone a somewhat darker tone, like some episodes of the first 3 seasons did.
