I used to love the toons on after school and Saturday mornings.  Good times!  Apparently kids have lives nowadays.

Ducktales, Gummi Bears, and Rescue Rangers come to mind after the obvious.

I remember Big Guy & Rusty from late 90's?  That was a cool cartoon.

Not sure if we have any big cartoon watchers here, but I was just checking out this trailer for the new Avengers cartoon, and thought it looked pretty cool.

I saw there was some other animation news at SDCC as well, with four Marvel "anime" series coming to G4 (Iron Man - which they showed a bit of on G4, Wolverine, X-Men, and Blade), as well as a new Ultimate Spider-Man and Green Lantern cartoons on the way next fall (2011).  Not to mention the new Joe and Transformers stuff.

I'll admit that I'm a cartoon watcher from time to time, especially now with our daughter too.  I'll pop in the DVDs from the old G.I. Joe, Transformers, and He-Man - and also some of the modern stuff (pretty much anything superhero, Clone Wars of course, and anything our daughter likes - usually Spongebob :))

Cartoons are practically all I watch, Simpsons, Futurama, King of the Hill, Family Guy on occasion, Spongebob, Batman TAS, Justice League, Animaniacs, Looney Tunes and tons more. I love cartoons, they're just so much more fun than live action, especially since you're free to do practically anything in animation. I think a lot of people dismiss animated series as "for kids" but theres a number of very mature series out there that can be enjoyed by anyone. Gargoyles is a good example of this, that show has some great stories.

A new trailer for the upcoming Avengers cartoon.  I think it looks pretty cool so far...and definitely much better than the 90s series.

Grew up with the likes of Transformers,Robotech,M.A.S.K.,MOTU,Voltron,Bionic-Six and SpiderMan and have followed the Iron Man - Armoured Adventures in more recent times as well as Wolverine and the X-Men.

Clone Wars of course also being the most followed for me.

Same here, watched a lot of Hanna Barbera, MASK, TF, GI Joe as a kid. Years later we got Cartoon Network and such. I'm a huge fan of Ren & Stimpy, Johnny Bravo, Dexter's Laboratory, Spongebob, The Tick, Samurai Jack, Courage the Cowardly Dog and the short films of What! A! Cartoon! Brilliant stuff.

Now that I have a 5 y/o daughter and a nearly 2 y/o daughter, I watch quite a bit of Dora, Diego, Backyardigans (they're cool), Rocket Power and such.

But nothing beats Tom & Jerry and the Looney Tunes! Nothing.

For those that are interested, Marvel.com has been running "shorts" of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes as a lead up to the October 20th premiere of the regular cartoon.  These are sort of similar to the original Clone Wars series, as they are "micro episodes" that are around 5 minutes long each.  Just thought I'd post it for anyone interested.

Also, it appears that the new Joe cartoon "G.I. Joe: Renegades" is scheduled to premiere on October 10th on the Hub (Discovery Kids).

Just a slight update to my earlier post, you can view all of the Avengers shorts (so far) online HERE.  I've been watching the new one each day, and I think the show looks pretty good.  Looking forward to it.

I don't know if anyone has been watching it, but the new Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon on Disney XD is pretty good so far.  I caught the micro episodes online (which are now put together pretty seamlessly as character-focused episodes on television), as well as the first four episodes of the season, and all have been pretty well done I think.  Worth checking out if you care about such things.

That was hands-down the funniest episode of the entire season.  There seemed to be a lot of slow points for season 4, and not much of a cohesive storyline.  Still a fantastic show, but I didn't think it held up to the standards set by the first 3 seasons.

But the finale... talk about fantastic!  Saved by Spanish Fly.  Most bleeps of any episode to date.  The return of Triana. 

And man... I want a Rusty Venture!

Here's to hoping season 5 is fantastic!
