Agree with everything there. Ninja turles was awesome. Scooby Doo was good also back in the day. I also like anime but I wouldn't show that stuff to a kid.

Bad Scooby Doo - Anything with Scrappy, anything lacking Velma, Fred and Daphne, any episode about zaniness, with no mystery-solving.
Good Scooby Doo - All the characters are present (except Scrappy) and they solve a mystery (even better if it's because Velma seems to know 400 languages). Hopefully, the scoundrel will proclaim them meddlin' kids.

I once saw a "zaniness" episode that featured Shaggy, Sccoby, and Velma (but no Fred or Daphne). Wierd.

Speaking of Cliff, he also had a small part in the star-studded classic "A Bridge Too Far." He plays a lieutenant in the 82nd Airborne who has one line -- he says, "What do we know about the boats?" to Robert Redford, who replies "I'm reasonably assured that they float. What we do know is that the river is wide and the current is swift. If I get any more cheery news, I'll only be too happy to pass it along."
Then, on the river crossing, Cliff gets his face blown off.

Not really a cartoon, but a great kid's show was New Zoo Revue. I'm thinking you have to be anywhere from 27-37 to recall it, but not really sure. It still comes on at 7am on Wednesdays from a station out of Akron. I don't get it, but I'm having my brother, who lives there, tape them for me.

Kevin got the Scooby Doo circumstances right. Scrappy was a ringer.

Old Tom and Jerry is a good choice.

And to throw support to Gen X, I LOVED Schoolhouse Rock.

I remember the "New Zoo Revue!"
I think it was a bunch of animals (or, more accurately, people in animal outfits) singing and dancing and doing skits.
Theme song: "It's the New Zoo Revue/Coming right at you..."
Can't believe it's still on the air.

A couple of the ones I used to watch about 12-14 years ago, after I got off the 7 to 3 shift at the spring mill were Darkwing Duck and Duck Tales (both featuring Launchpad McQuack, the hardest-working duck in cartoons).

KB had the Scoobies just right, as 78 noted.
I have vague recollections of the New Zoo Revue, but none of actually watching it.

Tom & Jerry is classic, but like Scooby, has conditions:
Evil T&J: when they're friends, when they talk
Good T&J: when they stop at nothing to destroy one another

It should also be noted that while Looney Tunes rules, there are moments, especially in the anti-violence era (meanwhile, anime is extraordinarily popular...hmmm) when the editing leaves it a little empty. Wile E. Coyote should always blow up, be disfigured, crawiling out of a crater at the end of a run-in with the Roadrunner. They always seem to "imply" the disastrous consequences of his malicious intent now. And I can't help wondering if that touchy-feely take on his repeated and hilarious attacks on the Roadrunner make it easier for harbingers of mayhem to forget that their idiotic behavior HAS CONSEQUENCES, as we've recently seen first hand here in Beantown.

Dave

My favorite cartoons are Rocky and Bullwinkle. Kids love them becuase they are furry, talking critters, but they were really written for adults. Most of the gags go right over the kids' heads.

I think you're onto something Dave, if you're saying that just implying the injurious effects of Wile E Coyote does more to encourage impressionalbe kids to emulate them. Kind of funny, since I'm sure the less-graphic Looney Tunes was intended to have the oppositve effect.

Buckeye opened this up to non-cartoon kid shows. Does anyone remember a show about different cultures called Vegetable Soup? It had a peaceful message, so it's ironic that I would KILL to see it again. I probably haven't seen it since I was six, but I remember a bit of the them song, ("Come on along and join us! ...for a little bowl of vegetable soup.")

Dave...

There's nothing worse than watching a Tom and Jerry and one of them opens their mouth and talks. AMEN !

I also recall watching a new Wiley E. Coyote and thinking this isn't right.

Kevin...

Vegetable Soup? Ah, no for me. I could ask my siblings, they might recall.

ESP...

You got New Zoo Revue right. That is the song and set up. My brother is coming over from Akron tommorrow. He has the tape with a few episodes on it for me ( now to only not let the wife know I'm doing something this " childish").

Kevin...

Do you recall 33 Pow ! out of Youngstown growing up. It was a local show. Perhaps you got in Akron, perhaps not. It ran in the EARLY 80s.

Anyone like the Electric Company?

3-2-1 Contact?

The Bloodhound Gang?

Duffy Moon? ( " You can do it Duffy Moon.")

Some of these shows were on when I was even a little older, but I watch anything...as my wife notes.

Electric Co, 3-2-1 Contact and Bloodhound Gang I remember is vague terms.

Morgan Freeman started on Electric Company. If I'm not mistaken, there was also the cry "Hey! YOU GUYYYS!" (which is featured in the movie The Goonies).

3-2-1 Contact and Blookhound Gang I remember very poorly.
Duffy Moon. Nope. Never heard of it.

Dave

That's weird, they are a little closer to your prime of childhood watching. They were on PBS Dave. Did you get it out of Pittsburgh? I got two, one from Pitt and another from Akron, so all those shows were on constantly.
