Hey guys.
What is your all-time favorite cartoon? No pussy-footing "one of my favorites", I mean hands down your absolute most loved cartoon.
It doesn't have to be objectively the greatest, I just want to know what that greatest is to YOU.

By all means, factor in nostalgia, factor in the memories, and shine light unto some good ass cartoons.

After, "Waiting" it was all downhill for me.

Probably Kids Next Door, I was really into it for a while. The lore is good, the characters are endearing, the morals and lessons are touching, the themes are fun, the character interaction is fulfilling, and it can hit hard when it wants to. Operation Z.E.R.O. and Operation I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S. are still some of my favorite cartoon specials.

I'm really starting to love this show, it's very charming, doesn't have to rely on powers/fantasy/randomness, and has this nostalgic feel to it. And the artstyle makes tons of characters look cute. I love Belson and Mel but my favorite has to be Percy.

It had three seasons and rumor has it the only reason it lasted as long as it did was because the creators knew the CEO. Or that's how the story goes anyway.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

It definitely isn't the BEST cartoon I've watched and I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone, but I like it more than anything else. I think it's because other better, higher quality cartoons are repeatable. A really good cartoon will always come along eventually.

But MLP:FiM was lightning in a bottle. I don't think that another cartoon anytime soon is going to have the established media presence from three and a half generations of children's programming, the freedom of airing on a new experimental channel, or a premise charmingly novel enough to do all the things MLP:FiM has done.

People on /co/ always say "this is going to be the new MLP," but the truth is there probably will never be a new MLP.

Did you at least watch the English dubbed version?

Looney Tunes.

Those shorts practically define American animation, not to mention that they're visually gorgeous and make me laugh out loud no matter how many times I watch it. I ended up watching "One Froggy Evening" about a week ago, even after seeing at least 100 times in my life, and still found myself laughing.

>>69009895

Maybe we should ask the new admin to change it to /ani/ - animation and /mc/ - manga and comics. The shitposting for /ani/ would be glorious.
>>
Adventure Time, not even trolling.

It's fucked itself up so many times and deserves most of the criticisms it receives on /co/, but with that being said I still love the fuck out of it and feel it's chugging along pretty adequately.
It's like a 6/10 show objectively, but I REALLY like it. I'm a fag like that.

I'd be able to forgive a lot if the ending isn't shit, but it's probably gonna go on for another 3 seasons so I don't really see that happening. Ah well.

Ed, Edd n' Eddy

That show is so funny all around, from the over-your-head jokes to the audio gags, and it's just so nostalgic of that "summertime" feel as a kid.

Plus, it's REALLY fun to watch stoned.

I came to /co/ for AT threads, and their the main reason I'm still here.
When there's an episode they're good for shooting the shit.

I feel that people don't give it enough credit (on 4chan at least, overrated everywhere else), even those shit seasons have lots of great episodes.

Oh, and as a reply to OP, to me that show would be Beavis and Butthead. It helped me discover my music taste, not to mention the main characters are unbelievably idiotic, yet somehow retain a charm that not a lot of other shows can achieve with similar characters of low IQ.

king of the hill

love the characters and their interactions, the fact that it was committed to the whole realism aspect, and of course the style of humor

it has its flaws but, for me, never crossed the line like the simpsons eventually did-- where you just start to hate it and everyone involved for letting it stay on so long

No, it was really terrible in just about every way, and left a stain so huge on the franchise that not even Omniverse could save it. UAF seriously killed the franchise.

Ed, Edd'n Eddy. It's literally the best cartoon ever. This is fact. I loved coming home to watch it after school. I loved watching their schemes unfold, and hoped that they would pan out. It was interesting to see the show from what was basically the perspective of the "bad guys" who were just trying to be apart of the crowd.

Ed had the best one liners
Edd was the best Ed
Eddy had the best lines ultimately. Especially insults. Combine the funny squash and stretch animation with the god tier sound effects and you've got a 9 out of 10 show. The one thing I only wish it did was expand it's cast. but for only having 13 characters, it did some amazing shit.

You glazed over "ruined Gwen" but I guess that could be divided into the lesser categories. I think it could do with its own mention though.

Definitely a close second. OS and OV were based. AF was ok. I think it's unanimous that UA can fuck off.
>>
>Gravity Falls
First thing I have in common with my way younger cousins and siblings. It opened a door.

Before that it was Speedy Gonzales.
>>
>Invader Zim

Humor is subjective, I get that. But it still holds up in terms of art direction, animation, CG, and action.

One of the best sci-fi cartoons ever.
>>
>>69010617
I was going to write a bit about how Gwen and Kevin were characters in name only but I could've went on and on about that so I just said it wasn't faithful.

>>69010642
OS and OV are about equal, but I think OV might have been a bit higher for me just form how fun it was. It brought back alien fusions, Ben 10K, brought in alt universes, and speculating with you guys was fun.
>>
>>69010558
>Double D was best Ed
>Not Ed
nigga plz
>>
>>69010113
>>69010558

agreed. This show helped me through a dark time and I'll never forget it for it.

I have fuckin like 5 years worth of fan art for it
>>
>>69010719
also in my opinion Eddy was the best Ed. I loved him since season 2 and the movie fucking cemented it.
>>
>>69010597
I guess I just relate to him more. Instead of being a zany trouble maker who likes to go out doing crazy shit, I'd just tag along for the ride and try to steer course, when ultimately, I'd rather just be at home doing something autistic like meticulous computer work.
>>69010703
Ed was funniest Ed. But would you want to hang out with him? He's clinically retarded and smells like Kentucky fried ass. But he would like comics and cartoons.
>>
>>69010693
Yes. I used to sit in my living room with cap n crunch and watch this for hours. Haven't watched it in forever though.
>>
>>69009256
Stupid fucking question. There are so many varied genres and styles of cartoons one cannot merely pick an "all-time favorite" because human beings do not exist in the same mood with the exact same preferences at all times of their lives, or even at every time of the day.

Ed, Edd, n Eddy. It has so much love and effort put into it's animation, slapstick, voice acting,setting, and tone. For something so simple it manages to still hold up to me even though I've grown up.

Wallace and Gromit. It's just so goddamn comfy and a big factor is nostalgia. I watched their 3 shorts too many times to count throughout my childhood.
>>
If Nostalgia is aloud then I'm gonna pick this one. I don't care how cheesy it was I loved it, and I loved the world it was set in.
>>
God, this is hard OP. So many good cartoons, and so many that I love have already been named in this thread: Gravity Falls, Venture Bros., Mission Hill, Gumball, Batman TAS, Ducktails...

But if I had to chose one I'd have to pick Talespin. It's so deliciously pulp, and there's so much nostalgia tied up in it. It's the first cartoon that made me think that the characters inhabited a wider world, rather than living in their own little isolated pocket of reality, and the world they inhabited was super cool. All those airplanes, and that interwar streamline/deco art design. Loved it.

I haven't been brave enough to watch it again, though. I'm afraid the magic will rub away.

I think it would have to be Fred's Head, mostly because of the lengths I have gone to just to watch it, and while there are plenty of shows I would consider superior in a multitude of ways I doubt I would bother putting in the same amount of effort into any of them if it was required.
Honorable mention to Duckman, a very close runner up. On top of being a great show all around, it made it's ugliness work while any other show would have been made lesser for it.

Well fuck me. There's a lot of great cartoons out there, so I have to pussyfoot a little here.
Like all of us, I watched cartoons and a bit of anime (Pokemon, Digimon, whatever they aired in Finland) when I was just a little kid. Without going too deep into personal blog territory, let's just say that I've gotten more out of cartoons now that I'm older and have REALLY gotten into them.
That in mind, my all time favorite is probably Oban Star-Racers. I've seen it only once, watched it a good while ago when I managed to snatch it through some links on /co/, but the memories are vivid as ever. Everything tickled me just right - the art style, the story, the characters, the music, and even the 3D in the race sequences worked. It was near perfect in every way.
