@nessisonett For a while, I had "Noot noot!!" as my text message alert. You'd be surprised how many professional adults were overcome with uncontrollable joy whenever they heard it.

Out of those three American Dad would probably be the best I've seen. Family Guy I only really enjoyed for the first few seasons and I've never really seen any South Park to be perfectly honest @Draco_V_Ecliptic.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy I would highly recommend South Park if you liked American Dad and Family Guy, it's the king of adult animation. If you do feel like exploring it let me know what you think, but be warned, the humor is definitely not for the faint-hearted, not that I am saying you are, in any way shape or form - faint-hearted.

Pre-School/Educational: I'm planning to catch up on The Lion Guard, PJ Masks, and Jake and the Neverland Pirates sometime this year.

Grade School Age: I've been binge watching W.I.T.C.H. Season 2, only have two more episodes left.

After that I need to get back to watching Craig of the Creek, Ben 10 rewatch and the reboot, Powerpuff Girls rewatch and the reboot, The Loud House, and The Casagrandes.

Adult Animation: I've been binge watching Big Mouth: Season 3, and I plan to get back to my Archer: Season 1 rewatch soon.

@KidBoruto Tiny Toon Adventures & Biker Mice from Mars are my childhood Western cartoon series during 90's era.

Tiny Toons is great, I've been meaning to re-watch it, especially after the reboot/revival announcement.

I used to really like Regular Show and Adventure Time. Any fans of those shows on here?

I loved both shows! I started to collect the comics/graphic novels that continue the story, but sadly the physical versions are slowly going out of print.

Still need to watch the first two Adventure Time: Distant Land specials that are on HBO Max.

@KidBoruto big fan of archer too! Takes a while to get used to but it is so funny once the characters have warmed on you.

I love the show enough that I started to do a big re-watch on Hulu, but then I got distracted and stopped XD.

Haha, Pingu was awesome! My sister is terrified of penguins, which may or may not be related to Pingu. She's never clarified.

When I was a small child I watched whatever was on BBC, ITV or Channel 4's kids programming. Inspector Gadget, Bananaman, Penny Crayon, Raggy Doll and The Raccoons. Oh and Sharky and George. There must be loads I've forgotten about. Mostly all I remember of them is the theme songs. Surely they're better than the CG crap that kids watch nowadays? My niece frequently had something on called Lady Bird, which I found insufferable, and my nephew was obsessed with Paw Patrol.

As I got slightly older I enjoyed Babar, The Animals of Farthing Wood and Albert the Fifth Musketeer. Arthur has mostly pleasant social messaging based on what I've seen - something I know has drawn the ire of conservative religious groups in America over the years - and is generally a nice, well animated programme. Plus it has a great theme song, which is important for any cartoon.

A few years ago I watched Avatar and The Legend of Korra, finding both amazing (especially Avatar). Quite exceptional quality for cartoons originally on a kids channel and the ending of Korra is so sweet.
The Simpsons hasn't been good for over 20 years, but the classic episodes are still among the very best TV of all time, so I love to cycle through seasons 1-10 reasonably frequently. It's also provided us with a reference for every occasion.

As @RogerRoger points out The Clone Wars is excellent too. I admittedly wasn't initially sold on it, but once it found its footing and become more ambitious in its storytelling it was absolutely essential viewing. It has brilliant, intelligently written and mature story arcs that greatly flesh out the lore of Star Wars and provide greater context to the events of Attack of the Clones (and later Revenge of the Sith). Anakin has a charismatic voice actor in Matt Lanter, which I found to be a big improvement on Hayden Christenden's rather flat performances. My favourite character is undoubtedly Ahsoka, but I guess I have a soft spot for Ventress and her character arc, too. One of the best bits of the show was how it gave character to the clones themselves. They went from being props in the prequel trilogy to people the audience care about, which in turn questioned the ethics of their creation and usage in the first place.
I'm glad I saw it because it gave Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's story a little additional context. And after playing that I'm rather looking forward to watching Rebels, which has big shoes to fill.

@KidBoruto I think archer is better on a binge to be honest, I watched it all up to season 9 and when season 10 came out I was a bit lost in terms of the humour. I felt like it would have been better to watch 10 directly after the first 9 seasons because I'd be more used to it!

Same with Ricky and Morty as well actually, they are hard shows to dip in and out of unlike other adult animated shows and are much better when they are binged!

@mookysam I was a big fan of the inspector gadget cartoon! I even loved the movie with Matthew Broderick as well. Sharky and George was awesome too and I semi regularly sing the theme tune even now. It's mad how these cartoons stick with you so much into adulthood

I used to have a banana man duvet cover and pillow case actually but I can't really remember the show though I think we had a video of it. We had a video tape of super Ted I believe but there was one other tape that I remember the case of but I can't remember what it was called. It wasn't mighty max (though we had a video of that too with like a 3d (sticky out-y) picture of one of the toy sets on the front) but i think it was called something max or Max something. I think it had an animated boy with a big round face in a space suit (without a helmet) and he had like a tuft of sticky out red hair on the top of his head, I think he had freckles too.

I don't think I ever watched king Babar but he always reminded me of my (now late) grandfather because of the suit he wore! How do you pronounce Babar out of interest, Bar-Bar or Bay-Bar? And if it's Bar-Bar, is it acceptable to say Bay-Bar because that's how I say it because I'm from London 😂

@ralphdibny I’ve always said Bah-bar. Then again, it’s not like I speak RP and so would most definitely be wrong.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

ralphdibny

@nessisonett I had to look up RP! I think I speak like a posh commoner, probably with a more commoner accent though. It depends on who I'm around, I think I lean more common when I'm around posher sounder people and I mix and match when around fellow commoners. I am also constantly doing accents and funny voices though just because they make me (and hopefully other people) laugh a lot! I like doing impressions a lot too

@ralphdibny I completely forgot Super Ted! I just pronounce Babar "Bar-Bar". I'm from Kent, so just have whatever that accent that is. Halfway between posh and Albert Square? 😂 I have a friend from Newcastle who lived there for several years, and she used to take the piss because I'd say bar at the beginning of other words where there's no "r", like bath, b****** etc. Me, Mum and sister talk to each other in funny accents too!

#BlackLivesMatter

ralphdibny

@mookysam oh nice! Technically I'm Kent too, I'm in one of those funny border boroughs so I imagine we have similar accents. It's easier to say London to non-Londoners but I'm more specific when speaking to local people. I just watched a clip on you tube and it's pronounced B-bar or Ba-Bar with a quick first syllable. I almost wish I didn't know now though.

That's how your supposed to pronounce bath (like car) though! Well I think so anyway, turns out that outside of the south east you pronounce it bath (like cat) 😅.

@mookysam @ralphdibny This just reminds me of when my younger brother was watching children’s programs back in the day and there would be ‘rhyming words’ that only rhymed in a London accent 😂😂

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

@nessisonett we have a whole dialect named after our (sometimes questionable) ability to rhyme so I'm not surprised 😅, anyway I'm off to take off my bins and clean up my boat because I got a ruby all around my mouth after dinner

mookysam

@ralphdibny Noooo, B-Bar has ruined it for me. Oh well, it'll always be Bar-Bar in my head! With my friend, the reverse was sometimes true. She couldn't for the life of her say "arse" and that does have an "r'!

@nessisonett I'm probably now going to spend the rest of the evening thinking of words that only rhyme in a London accent.

#BlackLivesMatter

ralphdibny

@mookysam oh no haha! I'm so sorry, I did wonder after I posted if I'd spoiled it for you as well as myself! I thought you might have remembered how to pronounce it since you've actually watched it. I think I'll stick with Bay-Bar anyway too. I probably look like an idiot saying Bay-Bar but then again I can't imagine in what real world situation as an adult that I wouldn't look like an idiot bringing up King Babar anyway 😅. "I gotta get on the 17:08 train home. Corrr, I wish I was King Babar, then I wouldn't have to take a rush hour train!"

Arse is a funny one because of the word ass. I always say arse as arse and say ass as ass. One is a bum and one is a donkey. I think it's confusing because in America the word ass means both bum and donkey and that's how they say it but I think it is actually two different words over here...at least in the south east where we say ca(r)stle and ba(r)th
