Never has a dog and cat gotten together to more aptly illustrate our dysfunctional brains.
It was like watching The World of David the Gnome but without the racist tension of having different colored hats. Papa Smurf dishing out wisdom was accompanied by Smurfette delivering us our prepubescent blonde quota of the morning.
This purple-masked quack typically followed DuckTales, like a darker, edgier duck. Sort of like how Cinemax would show a police-themed episode after your parents' favorite detective shows were over.
This show, quirky enough to make a great cartoon but not a good movie, reminds us that dogs really are the brains of our operations.
What did we do Saturday mornings? The same thing we do every Saturday morning, try to try take over the world (but when that failed, Animaniacs). There were so many great subparts to this show (Pink and the Brain, Slappy Squirrel, The Goodfeathers). Seriously, who didn't love those fucking pigeons!?
Most of us just wanted to jump in the coin pit, but there's a good reasons this show is getting rebooted. Can't wait for more tales of duck.
Scooby and the gang got a lot of reincarnations, mostly progressively worse with some poor live-action attempts. Has this show really been in existence for almost 50 years? Christ, Scooby!
Ironically, they weren't the real original Ghostbusters, but they were still great. Starting in 1986 right after the hype of the first film and disappearing right after the sequel in 1991, we thought things were going downhill, then we got Extreme Ghostbusters. Yikes. Doesn't stop us from binging hard on the five seasons of this show that just went up on Netflix as we await the announcement of the new animated series and movie. It can't get much worse than the YouTube comment section on Paul Feig's reboot.
The Dark Knight has gotten a thousand different suits and cars, as well as butlers and villains, but none can compete with this cartoon series. This animated series showed up around the time of Burton's Batman Returns and ended right before Schumacher's Batman and Robin, the worst blockbuster of the last 20 years.
And who could top this foursome? Now 30 years since its conception, we celebrate all the brutal continuity errors and things that never made sense. Sadly, it's still better than whatever Michael Bay's company barfed up. Might be smart to revisit since it could be a long while until we get new turtle time outside of their Nickelodeon show.
