You know how some guys always claim that the past is always better than present? That’s bull. Proof is that every single generation says that. Nostalgia will make whatever stuff from your childhood memory appear to be awesomely good. If every single generation is worse than before, the stone age is nirvana. We can only state that products of each generation evolve and people become more forgiving to their past version of evolution.

This was something I was pondering and I thought I should post an article on what cartoons I actually enjoyed during my younger days. Being at the age of 23 (OH NO JIM CARREY), I think I can qualify to have fancy nostalgia once in a while. I won’t claim the list below is the best list of cartoons from before, but the listed works surely entertained me when I was really bored back then.

Not in any particular preference or order:

1.Swat Katz
Back when I was a kid, I thought car mechanics who’d turn into crime fighting cats at night is a very cool concept. We all know it’s retarded anyway. However, this was one of my favourites back then. I’d rush home just to watch this on the kids channel.

Other than having a kickass opening theme, this was like THE cartoon to watch back then. I’ve included the Russian version of the opening because it’s sounds really freakin’ funny.

3. Inspector Gadget
I was a Doraemon fan. Yeah.

4. Alvin and the Chipmunks
I loved this so much I sort of, forced my parents into buying me the video tape sets. Most memorable episode was the Berlin Wall story. I teared watching that episode. This was like Beck to me.

5. Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers
Anyone who doesn’t know this deserves to die. I played the Nintendo game so much the cart exploded. Oh and I loved the female chipmunk(or mouse/rat whatever) to bits. Back then.

6. Animaniacs
Paniponi Dash! fans will love this totally. I’m one. The Pink and The Brain side stories were so popular my schoolmates all sang the song everyday.

7. Wildcats
Badass intro theme aside, this provided me entertainment when I didn’t have my fix of X-Men. Oh yeah…

8. X-Men

9. GI Joe
This cartoon produced lots of US nationalists in Singapore back then.

10. Johnny Quest
Wow! CG! In the opening sequence! Watch! Was quite boring actually.

11. Conan the Adventurer
The opening theme repeated the background story so much that I don’t remember anything from the cartoon now other than Conan’s petrified parents.

12. Reboot
Megabyte is one of my favourite villains ever. He was so badassly bad, he was funny.

13. Beast Wars
Wasn’t really a transformers fan, but this happened to air right after every Reboot episode. So I watched.

14. Starship Troopers
My first space war cartoon. Would skip my lunch to watch this.

There are still lots of cartoons I watched way back then, but I can’t really remember now. But yeah, these were the main ones which kept me company throughout my childhood and teenage years. Before anime became my main staple animation food. So what were yours?

    My list would be pretty similar. I think people of the same generation tend to watch the same things, after all these were the shows that we would discuss over recess or after school back in the day. I am more of a Transformers guy, so tended to follow Transformers and Beast Wars rather religiously. Good times, Good times.

    I recently had the opportunity to rewatch some Pinky and the Brain, and I was surprised to find that the show (along with alot of the other Steven Spielberg presents shows like Animaniacs and Freakazoid) was alot funnier than I remember. Alot of the jokes were pretty clever, though like most satire somewhat dated. As a kid, I probably just laughed at the slapstick. Batman:TAS has also held up pretty well.

    “Tom & Jerry”

    Ah yes the Batman series. Not on my primetime list but watched enough to know the penguin’s retard.

    Holy, I totally missed out that one. Along with roadrunner, bugs bunny, whatever ACME thing they had. The list goes on.

    I watched almost everything of what you watched as well.

    Superman Animated, Batman animated, Batman of the future and spiderman animated were my stables as well. For these, you have to agree that that oldie is good. Look at kiddish batman and spiderman now!!

    TMNT, Transformers, both Beast Wars, Reboot, X-Men, and yeah, pretty much what you said. Minus Johnny Quest. I never did like that.

    I remember saturday morning cartoons would run from 9 all the way until noon. And sundays at 9am had Spiderman followed by Fantastic Four. Some great cartoons that haven’t been mentioned yet: The Underdog Show, Tail Spin, Darkwing Duck.

    NOOBS. Where are GHOST BUSTERS, TOXIC CRUSADERS, Johnny Bravo?? King ARTHUR and his knights of the round with super armour, Conan the adventurer, You’re Under Arrest, Last Exile, Gatekeepers.

    Whoah, I can sign to 10 of these 14. While they naturally seemed cool at the time, none of these shows can compare to the overwhelming shock of pure AWESOMENESS caused by 2 episodes of Robotech I happened to see on Scifi-channel. That was way more than a feeble child’s mind could handle.

    Hey, how come The Real Ghostbusters isn’t on that list?

    Also, Thundercats! HOOOOOOOO!!!

    Swat Kats turned some people I know into furries. I was more hung up on how they fit that many missiles into that goddamn jet.

  14. 14 MrMayat 50 comments

    To add to the mix from the top of my head,

    Visionaries, Star Command, Saber Rider, Lonestar

    Lian, you fail for not including Thundercats and He-Man in your list. I shall now brood in hate.

    Oh right, Ghostbusters. How could we have forgotten Ghostbusters? Also, Miker Mice from Mars.

  28. 28 anon 3 comments

    My favourites are Batman, Spiderman, Mr. Ajikko (thanks to that I can cook now) and Zettai Muteki Raijin-oh (classrooms that are control rooms for mecha are just perfect for education aren’t they?)

    Ah the sweet old times, no Care Bears? Other than the above, I remember being a big fan of “Arthur”. It’s sweet with a distinctive OP. (:

    tj refering to dinotopia?

Do not use any < and > for your own sake. It will end the comment there and then. Also, there is an automatic IQ filter which weeds out comments made by those who accidentally got transported from the stone age.
