This was actually one of the harder lists I’ve had to compile. There were some pretty bad ass cartoons in the 80’s and early 90’s. They just don’t make em’ like they used to anymore.
I decided to exempt a couple shows just because they are on another level of awesomeness. They include: X-men the animated series, Dragonball Z, Batman the Animated series, The Justice League and JLA Unlimited, Superman the Animated series, Spiderman the Animated Series, The Simpsons, Beavis and Butt Head and Ren and Stimpy. The last 3 were scewed to a bit of an older generation anyways.
11. My Pet Monster
I remember I got the “My Pet Monster Plush Toy” complete with plastic handcuffs for Christmas one year and all the kids on the street were so jealous. They would come over all the time and beg me to play with them and ask me if they could borrow my toy. No wait, that’s not entirely accurate. What I really meant to say was that I would sit in my room alone having a private tea party with my other dolls as I cuddled with it and sobbed uncontrollably.
Reboot was the first ever completely computer-animated TV series. Aired on YTV’s “The Zone” it had awesome plots, undertones of humor spliced in with kick ass action sequences and two awesome villains: Megabyte and Hexadecimal.
9. Dark Wing Duck
Drake Mallard A.K.A Darkwing Duck made purple cool.
This show was bad ass! Cars, masks, and people driving those cars with masks on. Plus secret underground facilities where manly men talked about chest hair, villains and pornography. I think that’s what happened on the show? Who the fuck can remember the 80’s. Cocains a hell of a drug.
7. Gummie Bears
Sweet candy. Even sweeter show.
Cancled because Disney deemed it to dark and complex for kids, Gargoyles was a sick show with one of the most intense theme songs and intro. Those damn anti-semetical facists.
5. Animaniacs (including Pinky and the Brain)
One of the sickest segments in cartoon history.
After this show went off the air in 1998 do you know who moved into the water tower? Gary Busey. Yeah, true story.
4. Inspector Gadget
Fun little fact: After Inspector Gadget was canned, Penny ended up working for Dr.Claw in one of his small time internet porn rigs. She was forced to perform acts of beastiality on Brain for $19.95 an hr (Visa or Mastercard).
This show was brilliant. Absolutely off the wall silly, it was created by DC Animation and intended to be a pure super hero action-adventure series but executive producer Steven Speilberg asked the writers to turn it into a flat out comedy.
This is a user generated video of Transformers. If this was how the actual show was it would have been #1 for sure.
3:25 – 3:35 fucking brilliant.
“Who the FUCK is Wheely?”
1. Bugs Bunny and Tweety show
This show was on for over four decades – that’s 40 years for all you mathmaticians/bad ass MC’s, and was responsible for inspiring animators and comedians for generations to come.
Other notable shows that didn’t make the cut:
Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers
