Sadly, I am addicted to Cartoon Network. Adult Swim calls to me every night. I'm worried that I may be sick and twisted.

lol, it's far too late to worry about that now.


my boy also loves "tom and jerry", but most of the bizarre new stuff is uninteresting to him, thankfully.
he likes spongebob (who doesn't), but bizarre japanese animation, as well as "fairly odd parents", "danny phantom", and others hold no interest for him. i'm very happy about that. the new stuff is just so stupid that i feel there's hope for the kids who reject it. stories need to mean something more than grand mal seizure inducing flashy scenes set within fragmented story lines, and i'm being generous by calling it a story.

is there any hope for the little bastids?

I totally sympathize. The only time I ever made it to a midnight release of...anything, really, was for Bender's Big Score. I've fallen out of FG fandom (too many manatee jokes), but as my avatar probably indicates, I still love Futurama.

This thread reminds me. A few days ago, one of my friends in California was very sick. As it happened, I had made an extra large batch of cookies that night and was going to send some to her. Being the dork that I am, I decided to put instructions in the box in the style of Cookie Monster, so I pulled up YouTube and found several old clips from Sesame Street that, even now, were hilarious.

Talk about hilarious--what about Monster Masterpiece Theater hosted by Alistair Cookie? Being a Masterpiece Theater fan I was on the floor when that came on.......and the Muppet Show---such jokes and innuendos............who says it was for kids

Cookie Monster was and is my favorite and Monsterpiece Theater was always the best. I used to think Cookie was stupid because of his broken English, but looking back, he's actually played as quite clever occasionally.

My favorite childhood cartoons were on the WB Network in the early- to mid-90s. Between Pinky and the Brain and Batman: the Animated Series, the house could be burning down around me so long as the TV was on one of those shows! Watching the DVDs these days made me realize they're not really "kid shows." They're "kid friendly", of course, but I've looked at them long and hard and can't find much that I'd characterize as childish (semi-anthropomorphized rodents aside). Batman in particular had a lot of depth and darkness--both literary and literal--for its intended audience.
