I think the same will be said about every generation especially when we only recall the shows we like. Whereas in the mean time, a bunch of crappier shows come up, but are inspirational to the younger generation. The process seems to keep going on.

Amen to that! those two are the only ones that are good anymore.

*sigh* I'm never going to forget all those awesome mornings I spent eating breakfast in elementry school. I always watched Mike, Lu and Og and/or the Sonic TV show. They were so awesome. And I still remember Lu's turtle was named Lancelot. :3

I've seen Kappa Mikey. I think it's gold. The premise is some poor japanophile ends up the star on a sentai show. That's just the setup though since it follows Mikey and the rest of the cast about their day in Japan. It's basically a fish out of water story. Maybe I only find it hilarious because Mikey could be any one of us if we were offered a part on our favorite sentai show. And yes, Avatar is win.

Onto another thought, I don't think nostalgia is the reason why we think the old cartoons we used to watch were good. Many of them actually were good. One exception I can think of that I used to love as a kid, but probably wouldn't be caught dead watching now would be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Its just so wrong on nearly every level. The new Ninja Turtles cartoon on the other hand, is just right however. It atleast skims the original stories from the comics. Frankly, skimming is about as close as they can get, I think. Those comics were freaking wild.

The list below is evidence that cartoons were wondrous in the 80s/90s.

Animaniacs.
Freakazoid.
Earthworm Jim.
Darkwing Duck.
Doug.
The Weekenders.
Recess.
Pinky and the Brain.
Johnny Bravo.
Samurai Pizza Cats.
Inspector Gadget.
Tin Tin.
Goof Troop.
Tale Spin.
Gargoyles.
Beetlejuice.
Tiny Toons.
The Raccoons.
Duck Tales.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
G.I. Joe.
Transformers.
Muppet Babies!
Paddington Bear.
Thundercats.
TMNT.

The first two on the list being (quite possibly) the best shows of our generation.

does anyone else get the feeling that cartoons have gone downhill since the 90's?


I saw anime beat cartoon with a stick.

Thats why cartoons are sucking balls now. Other than that there are exceptionally few good cartoons out there.

The audience for most American cartoons is children under the age of 13. That means that the themes and language is going to be focused on that age group.

However, there are some pretty good contemporary American toons. Johnny Test comes to mind, as does The Batman and Teen Titans.

The animation styles are definitely changing too. Most are done on high grade animation software, such as Combustion or 3DS Max. So, while the overall image quality is better, it becomes lifeless in a way, unlike in Anime, where I believe(but could be mistaken) that they use more hand drawn cels and images.

Also, the main focus of American cartoons/animation is motion. Oftentimes, in Anime, motion is subservient to the overall aesthetics of the frame/scene.

...


What was my pointconfused

I don't thing new american cartoon are that bad... I liked Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. I like american cartoon better for the fantasy-like universe and anime for the most close-to-real... Also from children's cartoon I like Courage the Couwardly Dog and Dexter's Laboratory.

The last good cartoon series I saw was TFO and Invader Zim (Im a big Jhonen Vasquez fan). I miss all the good cartoons I grew up with like Looney Toons, Rocko's Modern Life, Tom and Jerry, etc. Hell, the only reason I like TFO is for the jokes that older viewers would get. In fact I think there was a TFO episode that referenced old cartoons and the violence in them, which was hilarious.

It just kills when I walk past my step-brothers room and he is watching Sponge-Bob and laughing away. Because its not funny. Now if I want to watch my favorite cartoons I have to tune in to Boomerang...and for some reason I find that depressing. cry

American cartoons could be better if most of them actually had a main plot or just a plot. There is nothing that really keeps the audience wanting more since it's just episode by episode. I think the reason why Avatar did so well was because it had an overall plot.
