Hmmm…

I remember watching Thundercats, He-man (& Shera), but can barely remember them.
I loved Tom & Jerry.
X-Men.
(Dare I say it?) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles…
Scooby Doo (yes, pre-Scrappy).
Samurai Pizza Cats were a vaguely interesting diversion through high school at one stage, too.

Oh, I use to love Heathcliff and Ninja Turtles, but they were on at the same time every day.  I would usually watch the first half of one and then the second half of the other.

Well, I never saw a cartoon until I was in my late teens, but ones that I did enjoy then:

The old Warner Bros. cartoons (especially the ones with the roadrunner and coyote)
Some of the older Disney ones (not the newer ones from recent decades, though)
Rocky & Bullwinkle
Danger Mouse
X-Men
The Pink Panther

Naturally, now that I’m an adult(ish) person, I don’t ever watch cartoons any more. . .
*quickly hides his Danger Mouse tapes*

And Jackie Chan Adventures sounds interesting.

What do you mean, when you were a bit younger, Thunder?  Is it possible for you to be any younger than you already are?

Yes smile I watched pokemon when it first came out, so when I was about twelve or thirteen?

So yep, I wasn’t born a 16 year old. God, can you imagine that :S

Boo, you really missed out on the Muppets then.  Granted, some of the episodes were cringe worthy (Mark Hamill was never a guest, didn’t happen), but it was still lots of fun.  Damnit, I miss Jim. downer

Yeah, the muppets were great!

A “long” time ago, when I was a kid, there was only one channel in my country (in my language). There were also some foreign stations. Not much cartoons then, or TV for kids.
It wasn’t until the first commercial station was founded (I was six or seven), the offer of cartoons became broader. But still only Saturday mornings and before prime-time.
Sometime after was my first contact with some older cartoons from Warner Bros. and Disney (they were cheaper I guess). Later it also included Turtles and Flintstones, and that was it. (No x-men, just recently discovered it)

My favorites were:
The Gummy bears
The Raccoons
The Pink Panther
The Legend of Prince Valiant
The TMNT smile
There also was one series I can’t remember. (just one of the main characters, the minion of the bad guy: a frog-lizard like thing with just two feet and a horn on his forehead. If anyone recognizes this?)

The real increase in cartoons (also the newer ones) came at my mid teens. (after 1997 actually)
(And Thunder-chan, I also watched the first episodes of Pokemon tongue wink )
These days, there are much more channels and a lot of cartoons.
