Top 10 Cartoons of My Life

So, I was searching through the guide looking for something to watch-it's a rarity to find anything worth watching these days. I came across Space Jam on one of the Encore stations. Space Jam has always held a soft spot within my heart, mostly because of the Looney Tunes ensemble (most notably being Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Marvin the Martian, Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner).

About half way through the movie I had a bit of a nostalgic flashback, thinking about all of the cartoons I grew up with and still love to this day. I then thought: I want to make a top 10 list of my all-time favorite cartoons. Is the information you need to know? No. Is it information you want to know? Probably not. Do I care if you like this list? Not at all. Whatever the case may be, I am over it.

The is in descending order from 10-1 (1 being my top show-for those of you who might not process things quickly). No more talky from me, enjoy the list my friends.

10.) The Ren and Stimpy Show

Vulgar and crude are just two of many words to describe this show, but damn was it funny. Who would have ever though a dumb cat and a deranged chihuahua would work so well as an animated show? Best game ever from this show: "Don't Pee on the Electric Fence."

9.) The Real Ghostbusters

I liked the Ghostbusters and all, but Slimer absolutely made this show for me. He was fat, messy, and slimy (hence the name of course), but I just couldn't get enough of him. He oozed (had to do it) cool and did not take any crap.

8.) Family Guy

Okay, this is more of an animated show rather than a #cartoon, but I can't get enough of it. I know the show is hit or miss with the general public, but the style of humor fits my personality so I have a bit of a connection with the show. I know, it's weird, but that is how I roll.

7.) SpongeBob SquarePants

A sponge that wears square pants....ludicrous, absurd, bizarre, and destined to fail come to mind when you think of this. Who would have thought it was going to be pure genius, and this generation's best cartoon show. I watch Spongeboob #Squirepants (fans will get that) whenever it is on Nickelodeon, and I am proud to admit it.

6.) Rugrats

Tommy, Chuckie, and the Twins were idles to me, even though I was older than them at the time. These little ageless wonders went through more adventures than I even know how to count to. My life would not have been complete without them-pathetic, I know.

5.) Looney Tunes

Well, you had to know the Looney Tunes would show up somewhere on this list. You got: Bugs constantly getting into his shenanigans, and Elmer always trying to hunt him down; Marvin the Martian trying to destroy the Earth with his "Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator;" and Wile E. Coyote constantly blowing himself to pieces trying to catch that shifty little Road Runner....beep beep!

4.) Batman: The Animated Series

I will always see Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, but the true voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman will always be Kevin Conroy to me. He had a demanding presence in the show, and the constant cat and mouse games between Bats and the Joker-Mark Hamill kicked ass with the Joker voice-kept the show dark and interesting. I know it is easy to single out the Joker because he is the most recognizable villain, but I have just always been truly intrigued by his antics and what he will do next.

3.) Avatar: The Last Airbender

At first glance, Avatar looks to be a cheesy anime guided towards kids that have ADD and want something pretty to look at. Boy was I wrong. The storyline and writing is very mature (discover who you are, and strive toward your full potential), yet it does not lose site that it is still a show for kids. I want Appa and Momo as my next pets.

2.) Dragon Ball Z (DBZ)

Immensely bad ass....yeah, that sounds about right. I watched just about every episode through the first appearance, and defeat, of Frieza-at one point, I felt the powers in the show were within myself....a kid can dream can't he? The show isn't just balls to the wall action-however, the action sequences were amazing-there was death, emotion, messages, etc. in most episodes. Shows, anymore, are just dumb downed piles of junk that have no business to be on the air. I know what you are asking yourself, and here is my answer: I am able to create a Kamehameha attack.

1.) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987 TV Series)

I would firstly like to point out that I never got a chance to watch the series from 2003, or much of the recent stuff. That aside, the 1987 series was fantastic. I cannot honestly sit here and say there was anything award winning about the storyline or writing. I can sit here and say that everything about the Turtles is ridiculously cool, and every bit deserving of the top spot in my list. Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael all had qualities that appealed to numerous personalities. Leonardo as the unofficial leader; Donatello as the braniac; and Michelangelo in the goofy comedic role were all great with their roles...but Raphael takes the cake as the rebellious smartass, who thinks of himself as a far greater leader than Leonardo. Raph is my all-time favorite cartoon character, and to that I say......Cowaabunngaaaa!!!
