Nothing beats the Transformers. G.I. Joe was close, but the Transformers kill all. Optimus Prime was a bitch though. It was always about Megatron!

Don't forget about Voltron too.

When I have kids, they will not watch crap like Sponge Bon etc. I am currently collecting all the classic Cartoons on DVD. I have the first 2 Seasons of the Transformers, all 140 episodes of Tom and Jerry and some of Scooby Doo.

The Roadrunner first came out in the early '60s. I believe the criteria is for cartoons that first debuted in the '80s.

Ummm riiiiiiiiiiight. Why don't you throw in the Flintstones and basically all of the Mickey Mouse cartoons and Looney Toons.

All of the above rocked. Damn we got scammed by the cartoons.

    Glad to see Garfield and Friends being mentioned... that was always my favorite, except for the U.S. Acres stuff that went with it. I still like that show. I picked it up a while ago (several episodes on dvd), along with my favorite non-cartoon show-- MacGyver.

    Transformers was good, I also liked Thundercats.

    Speaking of cartoons, is it me or has the whole Saturday morning cartoon thing gone out the window? When I was a kid, almost every major network had nothing but cartoons from 6am-noon every saturday. I'm thinking I might do the same as KROC and start collecting them on DVD. As if my future kids are going to watch trading spaces and extreme makeover every Saturday  Yeah sure

    Makes sense though.... in the days of Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Toon Disney, and the like; what's the point of filling Saturday morning programming with cartoons when you can be advertising to adults?

    Ah, those were the days! Saturday morning cartoons were the best. Sitting on the couch, big bowl of Capt'n Crunch and hours of cartoons.

    There were so many that I loved watching, can't list them all, but check this out...
