No Invader Zim? I see how it is.

09-24-2002, 01:33 PM
Before Zim there was The Tick!

Lousy TV Guide... what do they know!? Speed Racer is rated higher than Tom and Jerry!?

What about The Critic's Jay Sherman (sp?)!?

Daria is up there? lies all lies...

09-24-2002, 02:24 PM
what about chim chim and spritle from speed racer? or uncle from jackie chan?

09-24-2002, 05:31 PM
How about Bender from Futurerama?
Or Stewie from Familyguy? Carlos the angry crocodile? Mr T-REX ?? anyone??

Clearly this list is corrupted! BAH it sickens me!!!!

3. Rocky and Bullwinkle - Guess they're alright
4. Beavis and Butthead - doesn't belong at #4
5. The Grinch - Eh..... why...
6. Fred and Barney should had been #2
7. Angelica Pickles - shouldn't even be there
8. Charlie Brown and Snoopy - Great
9. SpongeBob SquarePants - They shouldn't even be listed
10. Cartman - No idea, this from South Park?

09-25-2002, 11:47 AM
i think i'll start our own cartoon poll. everybody give me three characters from any cartoon(esp anime) and i'll make a poll out of it as soon as i get enough characters. duos can be one character(ala ren & stimpy,ambiguously gay duo,etc)

we can only get ten items on a poll so if you see something you like you can second the motion. this might not work, but lets try anyway.

09-25-2002, 12:11 PM
Beavis and Butthead higher on the list then Tom and Jerry? Someone pass me that broken glass bottle... I gotta have a word with the judges.

Black Ace
09-26-2002, 05:15 PM
I used to watch Batman, the catroon on Fox everyday at 4 P.M in the early 90's when I come home from school. Didn't WB had those new Batman cartoon? What a joke that was. Nothing is like a classic, nothing.

Some catroons I watch during that time includes, Teenage Mutant Nintendo Turtle, great cartoon by the way. I wish they still show it. And I used to see G.I Joe or whatever it is spelled.

09-28-2002, 07:11 AM
But what about Doctor Snuggles?!?!!?(I think that was the name)

That was real cartoon!not like these new cartoons(not talking about those on the list...expect maybe South Park...)

I never forget that flying barrel...or that giraffe in clouds!:rolleyes:

Hey chachiangel...if you make that poll but Doctor Snuggles there!

09-28-2002, 05:26 PM
ok, but i need more votes if this is gonna work.

09-28-2002, 05:35 PM
I'm telling you man- "anti-social" board.. :D

Anyway, make sure The Tick is included... this would of course include, The Tick, Arthur, American Maid, Die Fleider Mous (or however the heck it's spelled)

Also.. get Jay from The Critic in there


Batman, the Animated Series


I'll think of some more...

09-28-2002, 08:11 PM
-Invader Zim
-Homer Simpson

I'll say some more later.

09-29-2002, 12:46 AM
well i'm going to put-

-uncle from jackie chan
-kaji from evangelion
-kronk from emporor's new groove.

more votes! more votes!

09-29-2002, 12:51 AM
-That robot from Invader Zim. Grr or something. Not sure how to spell it.
-Hamtaro, maybe.

09-30-2002, 09:10 AM
Now.. I've got a question.. is this greatest cartoon series or character??

And if it's on cartoon character.. then should it be limited to just one character from a series? Sort of the best of the best type of deal?

09-30-2002, 09:24 AM
I agree wit Kid0_oIcarus! Only one char per cartoon!
(but it dosent matter mutch as long as Dr.Snuggles is there!:D )

10-01-2002, 11:30 AM
well, which would you rather do? i think we'll get more takers if its a whole cartoon series.

10-01-2002, 12:24 PM
Yeah let's go for that. I've already nominated some.

Also, add The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Smurfs, Transformers, Heathcliff, Peanuts (Those holiday specials, etc).. I'll think of more..

10-01-2002, 01:16 PM
There was six on your list already Kid! there can only be 10!
If you but that list just but DR.Snuggles, Invader Zim and...i dont know...maybe Batman...and then maybe Futurama! Thats ten!
(just dont forget Doctor Snuggles!)

10-01-2002, 03:04 PM

Your walking on weak ice here chachi :mad:

Just kidding...:P

10-05-2002, 07:26 PM
Anyway, how's this poll coming along?

i'm still waiting for a few more people to add their picks. i think its a little one sided right now. we only have four or five people picking stuff right now. i envision a five way tie in our future.

10-06-2002, 09:20 AM
A five way tie!? Not if I can bribe one of the other judges... muwahahahahaha..haha..

Come on people, hurry up and pick!

10-06-2002, 04:36 PM
Ninja Turtles
Family Guy
GI Joe

Ninja Turtles are gonna make a comeback. You just wait and see.

10-07-2002, 10:23 AM
yeah, that new t.m.n.t. cartoon looks pretty cool. hopefully it will be more like the old comics and a little less goofy.

i think i'm going to have overlord strt the poll on thursday or friday. any last minute nominations?

Black Ace
10-07-2002, 11:43 AM
Man, Ninja Turtles was one of the coolest show back in the late 80's and early 90's, why they stopped showing them is beyond me.

10-10-2002, 02:40 PM
well, with overlord's help, the poll should be up sometime tomorrow. probably tomorrow night. if you have any last minute nominations, vote now.

TV Guide? This list comes from WIZARD magazine, people who know toons if anyone does. The list goes all the way to 100...I'll post it later but now I gotta go.


10-11-2002, 07:47 AM
I swear the demographic WIZARD is using to get these ratings from are retarded. No way in hell are cartoons like Pinky and the brain, Dexters lab and Cosby kids MORE popular then others like Robotech or even DBZ. NOT COSBY KIDS! This survey was done probably in like 3 states of America. Should be called the NY top 50 or something.

Oh well what can you do when its an American magazine. They shouldn't say of all time though. Cause thats wrong. Disgusting. Where the hell is Voltes V. That was more popular over many countries then Voltron. Gundam Wing is also where Gundam started getting trashy sadly. No way can Wing even compare to the awesomeness of 0080 and Starburst Memories. The series starts off good then goes into generic retardedness with even worse animation.

10-11-2002, 08:21 AM
While that list has a lot of potential, I see it brought down with the likes of Johny Quest, and South Park on it. Wtf? They've got TWO spiderman cartoons up there- pick one! Pinky and the brain? More like my | ))!!

10-11-2002, 03:25 PM
Is it me or does Kid got a very cute avatar? Damn ..that's the pretiest avatar i ever saw! Su much love in that avatar!(No Kid not in that way) :p

O man ..i sure miss Voltron! Damn i even miss Mazinger! Why is Futurerama so low? What the hell is Gargoyles doing at numbah 27? Where's Wildcats?

Black Ace
10-11-2002, 11:32 PM
Nooooo. ;)

NiN has the coolest avatar when it was Kirby. I believe it is Magic Boc default avatar.

10-12-2002, 05:46 AM
I like my owl better!:P

8 bit Orgy
10-12-2002, 06:55 PM
DBZ is the best.

10-13-2002, 01:16 PM
Hehe...as you can see, there will always be quite a difference of opinion regarding this topic!!! Heck, I don't even agree with much of what Wizard said, but I think they were right on with the top 10.


10-15-2002, 04:01 PM
I think Kirby: Right Back at Ya! Should get a nomination.. that and Pokemon.. are they up there yet? :D

11-01-2002, 03:45 AM

Are you mentally retarded or something? :mad:

- Triple X Beaver :spinface:

11-01-2002, 01:38 PM
No, I just like Pokemon and Kirby.

xXx Beaver xXx
11-01-2002, 06:57 PM
d00d, I still think you are retarded.

HOW old are you? Pokemon and Kirby?

hahahaha! :2happy:

- Triple X Beaver :spinface:

11-01-2002, 07:23 PM
22 years old. Why?

How old are you?

xXx Beaver xXx
11-01-2002, 08:40 PM
You are 22 years old and like Pokemon and Kirby?


- Triple X Beaver :spinface:

11-05-2002, 05:30 PM
Yes. Don't you like them?

I have a feeling this isn't getting us anywhere...

11-19-2002, 06:26 AM
Whatever happened to Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys?!?
I loved that show.

And Gargoyles is good too... good thing it's in there

Gargoyles was a great show in the first few seasons, after that, it started sucking so badly.

11-19-2002, 09:41 AM
neon genesis. End of Evangelion ROCKED. And so did Death&Rebirth. Asuka restored to her full glory for just a few minutes. *sigh*

xXx Beaver xXx
11-19-2002, 09:46 AM
I remember Gargoyles!

I agree, the first few seasons were better.

11-21-2002, 04:24 AM
Samurai Ninja Cats all the way... My avatar is the best!

11-22-2002, 01:17 PM
Ashitaka of princess Mononoke is the best hero of all time.

Maybe because 8) it is his opinion, eh?
clearly something you can?t understand....

Let the guy like what he likes, how about it?

Ohhhhhhh smack. I didn't see until now that I got dissed by NiN, and I wasn't even talking to the bloke. Goodness gracious.
Well, in response, as a forum is a place where people are supposed to talk, I only wanted to hear his say on the matter. Discussing things is what makes forums work, and are actually the purpose of them. Perhaps if you hadn't of interfered, I might have learned something, because I have no idea how this character can be anyone's favorite.
So Mohtools, I'm still curious about the whole thing! Care to answer?


12-07-2002, 06:42 PM
Lion-o (Thunder Cats) great show by the way.


and one of my favorites are a tie between star scream of transformers and voltron

those are just a few of the sh

12-09-2002, 06:26 PM
I tend to agree, Beam. Lion-o was for every ghetto kid like me a true dream. He was like, "Thunder-thunder-thunder cats! Hoooo!"
But I watched it lately, and they talk EXTREMELY slow.
Voltron is arguably my favorite cartoon ever...right up there with Transformers. Starscream was phat, but Optimus Prime was the man with the plan. His succesor, Rodimus, wasn't bad either.


Draco Malfoy
12-31-2002, 12:30 PM
Ok course the best cartoons were:

Dungeons and Dragons
GI Joe
Defenders Of The Earth
The Legand Of Prince Valiant
Jacye And The Wheeled Warriors
Gravedale High

12-31-2002, 01:38 PM
No no no no no these people and the people voting for the list need a shotgun to the head. Stupid fat Hobbits's! How they can conveniently forget Astro Boy yet remember some bodgy crap like Dr Kats is BEYOND me. Anyone watched Fantastic Four recently btw? I know it was made a long time ago, but christ.. It is perhaps the worst cartoon ever made. Worse then Super Friends.

01-01-2003, 07:48 AM
Wait. The Fantastic Four cartoon is bad, true....but you're going a wee bit too far to say it was worse than Super Friends. Anything that can turn Batman into such a fruitcake is worse than Fantastic Four.


Black Ace
01-05-2003, 06:22 AM
Oh by the way, whats that cartoon call, the one with this chick, a guy, a genie (I believe), and I think a monkey. :2happy:

01-05-2003, 03:47 PM
I think Van from Escaflowne, Inuyasha, Kenshin, Akira, Sansoke, and Vash from Tri-gun are he coolest. Anime rulez, hands down good entertainment!

01-05-2003, 03:47 PM
Solar, do you refer to Aladin?
Personally i like the Lion King better

Well, anime has its place. I love it too, but I can't watch it forever. If you watch too much of it, it will taint your thinking.

That is true, but i dont watch to much anyway. Just here and there on the action channel(i have digial cable Channel 206)and sometimes i feel like dusing off my old DvDs and videos and watch them again!

01-19-2003, 11:40 PM
Don't forget who TV guide is. They're the same ones who put the opening from Saving Private Ryan up there as the #1 moment in a movie, ever.
