Do you like to watch cartoons?

I'll go first:

Yes.....my favorites are Johnny Quest, Looney Tunes ( the excessively violent ones) I love watching Wiley Coyote get an anvil dropped on his head ,Rocky and Bullwinkle, and of course Yogi Bear and his little cub Boo Boo.

You?

Of course I loved cartoons when I was a kid but then I grew up. When I go over to a friends house and the adults are glued to the TV watching cartoons I am just dumbfounded. They seem to be just as mesmerized as the kids. I don't get it. Cartoons just don't hold my attention.

During the 1990s when reality programming took over live action TV and TLC and Discovery switched from traditional educational documentaries to freak shows, I found myself watching Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon: Space Ghost Coast to Coast, The Brak Show, Spongebob, Samauri Jack, Johnny Bravo, Invader Zim. I also loved Dr. Katz.

I have fond memories of watching Looney Tunes with my grandpa. He was a generally grumpy dude but loved Road Runner and Bugs.

You know.....Looney Tunes has this campy Gay undertone in some of the cartoons.... I started to wonder if Mel Blanc was Gay or something....giving him some sort of 'insight'........but no.....hetero family man... ...you have to admit that Bugs was pretty gender fluid...for 1950's

I love them. But not the modern ones, with the exception of Simpson, Family Guy and American Dad.

I mostly watch the old school Looney Tunes, Droopy, The Flintstones, Jetsons, and all the 70s mystery solving teens cartoons. Those are my faves.

Animation is just a medium. Saying you won't watch cartoons is just as stupid as saying you won't watch black & white TV shows or silent films.

Yogi fucking BooBoo? I did not need to read that.

Yes. Current/recent shows I love (mostly superhero shows):

Young Justice Outsiders Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir

I also need to watch Yu-Gi-Oh! Vrains on Pluto TV now that we’ve finally got the English. But I keep procrastinating. There are also a lot of other anime I’ve been meaning to get into but with the # of episodes I get overwhelmed lol. Also, I don’t have Netflix but there are some cartoons there I wanted to watch and never got around to.

I’m hoping they come out with a new X-Men animated series that includes my fave, Emma Frost!

My favorite older cartoons are Justice League Unlimited, Avatar The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra, Kim Possible, Totally Spies and Yu-Gi-Oh! Also, Yuri on Ice.

I'm weird, but I prefer old school animation. I love watching the Flintstones and seeing the background repeat. It just makes me happy.

by Anonymousreply 15Last Wednesday at 5:58 AM

I like South Park and Simpsons too.

You mean the idea of Boo Boo taking it hard is a turn off.........

Looney Tunes will never get old. They were actually made for adults in the beginning and, yes, lots of gay subtext.

The classic Looney Tunes and early Disney films and shorts are wonderful. Carl Stalling was a genius. Daisy Duck is a hilarious portrait of the consummate hypocrite. How the Grinch Stole Christmas is just about perfect. The Pixar films are mixed, but Finding Nemo was brilliant. My Neighbor Totoro was charming as are similar films from Japan. The older Tom and Jerry cartoons and MGM shorts were also hilariously funny. Tex Avery was a lunatic.

I sort of see Scooby and the gang as culturally significant for several reasons, but I can't watch those things anymore. And the rest of that generation of animated shows always left me cold. Josie & the Pussycats? Jabber-Jaw? Top Cat? The animation wasn't good enough and neither was the writing - all you had were the characters and they were too often copycats or just plan annoying.

Rick and Morty is great. South Park and The Simpsons had their moments. The Oblongs is a weirdly likable little show, likewise Home Movies. Too much of the current stuff is too fake-zany for me.

I saw this ancient cartoon in reruns back in the 1980s. Courageous Cat and Mighty Mouse. I love the villain the Frog. Even the theme song is cool.
