Family Guy and the Cartoon Highlights

If you have completely lost touch with pop culture, i can understand how you wouldnt know that May 1, 2005, marks a tremendously important day in tv history. this sunday, the most remarkable accomplishment to ever grace tv will occur. for the first time, a network will bring back a television show into production AFTER it was cancelled. usually another network buys the rights for repeat airings (reruns); but never before has a show been cancelled and then re-activated for new episode airings.

So in honor of Family Guy's ali-like return to the ring, i have decided to make a huge list of all the cartoons that i have either watched or can rip on bigtime. They need to be divided into kid cartoons and adult cartoon categories....the list is quite long. (if i left any out im sure you will point out my shortcomings)

Adventures of Superman
Alf the animated series
Alvin and the Chipmunks
classic...its also sweet when jonnys voice sounds like alvin, due to still going through puberty.

i used to go home to watch animaniacs on a regular basis from 9th-12th grade. mander and i would talk like pinky and the bran until no end. what a quality show. because theyre dinky, theyre pinky and the brain brain brain brain brain.

Bobbys World
Bugs Bunny Show
Bullwinkle Show
Captain Caveman

Captain Planet
despite the fact that i cannot stand nature, this show was pretty sweet. plus i have always had a thing for dressing in tight spandex and cruising around the earth playing with 5 little third world country kids on a regular basis.

Casper the Friendly Ghost
now it just reminds me of the real casper the friendliest ghost, friendliest ghost in town who died of a drug addiction issue.

Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers
Daffy Duck Show
Dennis the Menace
Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids
G.I. Joe
Garfield and Friends
Gumby Show

Gummi Bears
i always wanted to try the gummi juice. then i could be like mike!

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
Inspector Gadget
Jem and the Holograms
ya i watched it... suck my balls! i was a little 8 year old coming to terms with the ladies.

Mighty Mouse
Mr. Magoo
Mr. T
i pity the poor soul who ever watched the A-Team as a child. myself included.

The Muppet Babies
Ren & Stimpy Show
old high school version was sweet! new 2000s version is laame.

Road Runner Show
Schoolhouse Rock
the only state to not ever invest in this brainwashing absurdity was the great state of Kentucky.

Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?
She-Ra: Princess of Power
damn this was one of the best cartoons of all times. i aspired to be Grouchy more than anyone, although i may have ended up just like Jokey. smurfette truly is a fox. also smurf ride at Kings Island was very very sweet.

tight. i dont remember anything about this show, just a cool word.

Speed Racer
SpongeBob SquarePants
Super Mario Brothers
Sylvester & Tweety Show
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
yup i was all over this one. action figures. daily viewings of TMNT cartoon + both movies. i also happen to identify with pizza cravings and all things being green. additionally, i have superior bo staff skills, numchuck skills, etc.

The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
i once lost a spelling bee due to the fact that 'hunny' is in fact spelled 'honey'

Tin Tin
Tiny Toon Adventures
Tom and Jerry
Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch
classic boys cartoon featuring talking motorcycles. ya that seems practical. also no memories of shows, just that i definitely watched it all the time.

Woody Woodpecker Show
The Wuzzles
also watched this show for some reason. remember, its like two animals combined. note: they had not invented a Liger yet, which is basically my favorite animal of all times.

Yogi Bear Show

Aqua Teen Hunger Force
i know this is like all the new hype on cartoon network adult swim. but i have still not caught onto it and probably wont ever. ever ever. blasphemy? blow me.

Beavis and Butthead
hours and hours of wasted time, masses of brain cells lost, sole responsibility for the words 'like' and 'uhh' in todays speech patterns of 20somethings can be traced back to this one show.

Clerks: the Animated Series
definitely funny if youre into kevin smith. didnt quite catch on and ran for like 8 episodes. netflixable and available on dvdank.


Jason Alexander breathes life into this ridiculously neurotic and self-serving duck, whose cohorts include cornfed, bernice, and ajax the burnout son played by Dweezil Zappa.

Futurama - never caught on with me either
Kid Notorious

King of the Hill
damn good animation, way more creative than any beavis and butthead sketches. hank hill is what brought nascar and jeff foxworthy to higher levels of fame than ever before. luanne is like my ideal white trash ladyfriend.

Liquid tv - remember aeon flux! so weird. first peek into anime i believe.
Sealab 2021
Simpsons - come on, no need to explain here.
South Park - ditto.
Stripperella - can pamela and her 2 bubs please just disappear.

The Critic
jon lovitz is hilarious in this cartoon about a loser movie critic who no one respects.

The Head on MTV


Anyway just thought i would take a trip down memory lane. if you have additional cartoons that you feel i have left off please feel free to berade me. cartoons that sucked or i didnt see were not included, but i would love to hear about others. also corned beef may 1st twains 4 pm. laters, have a sweet weekend.

Ok, comment requestor:

1. The Tick should be classified as an adult cartoon. It was eggsellent.

2. Sponge Bob? That is not from your generation, if you are indeed a 20-something.

3. Jabber Jaws, plus a slew of other Hanna-Barbera toons.

4. Ch-ch-ch-chip-en-dale

5. There are at least 3 TMNT movies. They go to Japan in the 3rd one.

6. Pink Fucking Panther.

7. Slimer & the real ghostbusters.

8. that is all

i agree with all the things eazy e said, and have to give you props, shoobie, for illiciting a response from a dead gangsta who lives in ho heaven. your blog is pop-u-lar!

animaniacs was great. there were at least three episodes that were based solely on a penis joke.

you left out the moncheechees, rainbow brite and my little pony. you had to catch at least bits and pieces of these on account of steph, am i right?

and aeon flux gets added to the adult list. that show was the tits.

you are correct. sponge bob has never been watched by me. i would have ripped it for being really 'fun', but i forgot that i dont smoke pole.

i did in fact also see all TMNT movies, i just forgot.

hanna barbera and all that shit should just be grouped into 'Cartoon Express'... remember that crazy train?!

and quit thinking about jacked sweaty beefy guys. chipendale is chip and dale, rescue rangers, which is in fact on this list.

i apologize for my shortcomings on chicky cartoons. i of course was subjected to little pony, rainbow brite, care bears, possibly even some raggedy ann. but i would never mention that in such a public forum!

ps- moncheechees, which i absolutely do not remember, is the hardest thing to find a picture of on the internet. so to date, no recollection.

Nice post, per usual. Thanks for the link as well. Two things: 1. Smoke some chronic and watch some Aqua Teen- you WILL become a convert. 2. I may be a little old, but can a brotha get some VOLTRON?!?
