  Probably already on here if wu_kong got there first, and I can't really be bothered to check, but the thundercats is the best ever cartoon.  I mean, how many other cartoons had Mr T and (rather stupid) evil mutants in them?

Incidently Mr T was not on the show it's just that Dark Prince believes that's one of the characters was like Mr T.

Sigh, remember that Alvin & The Chipmunks episode with Mr. T? Man, that rocked.

P.S. I haven't heard anything since it was first announced, but there's supposed to be a new Sam & Max game coming out at some point. Also, the creator Steve Purcell is working as an artist at Pixar or something. I hope he gets Steve Jobs drunk at some point and convinces him to greenlight a Sam & Max movie. That would be so cool.

Anyone remember "Count Duckula"?  It was about a vegetarian vampire duck.  Good stuff. 

It was from the makers of "Danger Mouse" and it played on Nick in the late 80s.

I rented these videos from Blockbuster when I was a kid, they were about a platypus named Ovid and his friends who lived in an island. I thought it rocked, even though I didn't see the original TV show. I think it was a Canadian show.

I canNOT believe I forgot the entire Squigglevision line. All gone today, save for Home Movies on Cartoon Network, which I don't get here IN ONE OF THE BIGGEST CITIES IN AMERICA rat bastard cable company.

Squigglevision/Science Court ran on ABC's One Saturday Morning and FX ran two seasons of The Dick & Paula Celebrity Special, which I worshipped--but the crowning glory was Comedy Central's Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist. They all just up and died one by one--Katz's final season was run as a one-night marathon, and then it disappeared without one word of warning or explanation. To this day I do not know what happened.

I swore if that ever happened to a 'toon I loved again, I would unleash such carnage upon the people responsible as to make Pinhead and Freddy Krueger blow their lunches.

(cough)

The Squigglevision shows -- find Dr. Katz and run the clip! This guy was busted at San Francisco International Airport for trying to grab a rifle away from a National Guardsman. (I like him, he's funny, but he's a complete knothead.)

Squigglevision was fun, but I prefer HOme Movies to Dr. Katz. Too much reliance on stand-up comic guests, who are often just not funny.

BTW, anybody see "Saddle Rash", their latest offering?

Dr. Katz rocked, but yeah, most of the stand-up comedians were just lame. They should have focused more on Katz and his son(played by the same guy who does Coach McGuirk, if I'm remembering right. He's such a funny bastard). And also the secretary, she was pretty good.

I remember thinking of Home Movie as just "ok" when it first played on UPN, but for some reason I loved it as soon as I saw it on Cartoon Network. The new flash animation took a couple episodes to get used to, but the show is still hilarious. Coach McGuirk almost killing that disabled kid was was one of the funniest/most disturbing moments ever.

Saddle Rash was a pilot for a new cartoon about a town in the Old West. It aired about a month ago, and I bet they'll eventually rerun it.

I've only seen the UPN episodes. Are the character's hands still crazy--the same color as their shirt sleeves, like all their shirts and jackets had "jammie-feet"? That's what I had the biggest problem adjusting to...

No matter how lame a guest could get on Dr. Katz or Dick & Paula, you could always count on the animators to save it. Ray Romano would still be nobody if it weren't for the good doctor.

Dr. Katz made a guest appearance on South Park, being killed by a giant fireworks "snake."

Dr. Katz, Home Movies and Dick and Paula all rocked.  It's too bad that there's only one out of three left now.  frown

I can't believe I left out Dilbert!
Terrific show.  I was actually never a fan of the Dilbert comic strips, but the show captured so much smart humor I was left delirious afterwards.  A big shame the DVD never came to the states and UPN pulled the plug....

Edit: It's good to see other Sam & Max fans!  If they ever made a movie *faints*

Hey does anyone remember the animated series in which some character (possibly "Eric", I 'm not sure) always collapses in a very special way:  He starts hyperventilating, one of his veins swells, goes round his neck and strangles him.  All the episodes end like that.  This cartoon series may be British.

Another cartoon: some weird creature, of which one end is a cat, and the other end is a dog.

That first cartoon you were talking about is called "Stressed Eric" and the other one is called "catdog"

Thanks  smile

Other cartoons I remember: the X-men (not X-men evolution).

I used to love Duckman.  The way he sometimes slaughtered those annoyingly cute teddybears...  I say Duckman could have been a success.

Sam & Max are cool. I remember in one episode, there was a part where Max made the lights go out by clapping his hands.

One of the cartoons that aired when I was 4 years old was "The Super Mario Bros. Super show" which was based on Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario 2. I had always dreamed of being a guest star on the live action segments. Now with my Mario cartoons DVD, I will never be Marioless again...
