Tintin is the second best thing Canadians have ever animated (I LOVED the original books too) {The best thing Canadians ever animated is of course, ponies}

The Animals of Farthing Wood




Chip n Dale

I was never a huge fan of those late 80s/early 90s cartoons like TMNT, Ren and Stimpy, etc.


I am a huge fan of early Tom and Jerry, Roadrunner, etc. though. I love all the older Looney Tunes shows. But my favorite cartoons are Ed Edd n Eddy, Teen Titans, Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Powerpuff Girls, Hey Arnold, Kim Possible, and I know there's a few others I'm forgetting.


One more thing: I love the Pink Panther

Oh yeah, I like to back and revisit the stuff I watched as a kid Spider-Man The Animated Series, Batman The Animated Series, TMNT '87, Beast Wars. LOVED those as a kid.


I also take a look at some of the cartoons that were before my day like Transformers, My Little Pony and Captain N the Game Master (I know it's stupid but it is fun to watch XD)

I watched a few retro cartoons although I was a 2000's kid. I had a Garfield and Friends DVD when I was a third or fourth grader (and got the whole collection a few years ago), watched Wakko's Wish, Animaniacs, and Pinky and the Brain when I was around that age or older, watched a few episodes of Popples, and now my current favorite retro cartoon is Britt Allcroft's Magic Adventures of Mumfie.


This series was created by Britt Allcroft, the creator of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends, based off the works of Katharine Tozer. I MAY have watched this show on Fox Family when I was a baby, as when I watched the episodes on Hulu, some scenes in the episodes seemed familiar). 

The show follows a young elephant named Mumfie who thinks adventures come in parcels, but he discovers this isn't true, and sets off to find an adventure.  This cartoon is about an elephant who was all alone and had no friends, so he set out to find an adventure. He wound up meeting Scarecrow and Pinkey the Flying Pig and went to an island to help the Queen of Night (voiced by Britt Allcroft herself, surprisingly) bring happiness back to her island that was taken over by the Secretary of Night. This story was told in a movie called "Mumfie's Quest." After the movie, two seasons of the show were made. Each episode is 10 minutes long, but the show aired in America as a twenty minute show with two stories and a Mumfie Melodies segment, which were AMV-like music videos of two songs from Mumfie's Quest. These were usually played in between stories. 


My favorite character is Bristle because he is so hilarious. He is a fat midget who mostly likes RUUEELS (how he pronounces rules, he also pronounces the "r" sound weirdly) and sometimes, he likes keeping everything clean and tidy. I also liked the Secretary of Night from Mumfie's Quest because he's mysterious and wants magical powers, but I want to know more about him, because the film never told us about him. (According to a poem about the Mumfie books, in the Katharine Tozer book, Mumfie's Magic Box, his goal is to invade the minds of dreamers, which is different from Mumfie's Quest.) Also, Pinkey the flying pig is ADORABLE! 


According to an article about a house Britt Allcroft renovated, she is currently working on new episodes of Mumfie!


You can watch Mumfie on Netflix (only the first 26 episodes, the Christmas special and the movie), Hulu (has all the episodes, minus 4 missing ones and the episode version of Mumfie's Quest, the Christmas special and the movie), and Amazon Prime (same selection as Hulu).

Wow, this thread was posted two years ago then revived outta nowhere and no one said a thing.  Also kinda surprised such a thread has had so few replies after all this time, lol.


Well, I love cartoons and animation of all types, but most of all 2d Western cartoons (like, not-anime, though I do love anime too).  Some stuff I grew up like Tiny Toons, Animaniacs etc. I always considered my very favorites of all time until pretty recently when seeing them again on the Hub I wasn't as into them as I thought I'd be.  They were great and all but there are various elements that kinda keep them from being ideal, like the weird and often-messy animation due to being animated by like tons of different studios around the world at once and all of them being rushed, to get 5 new eps out per week.  Also, abhorrently huge amounts of crappy early-90s pop culture references over actually skillful writing too much of the time.  They're definitely still great cartoons, though, just not as great as I remember.


Freakzaoid and Pinkie and the Brain were the better, younger siblings of those cartoons, though I daresay for the better writing and animation they had much less likable characters in comparison.  Not that half of Animaniacs' cast were that likable, but the MAIN ones were.


I'm still a huge fan of the late 80s/early 90s Disney TV faire, like Ducktales, Darkwing Duck, Goof Troop and Chip n' Dale.  When I see them again now I'm really impressed with how great the animation and writing are, and their NOT RELYING ON POP CULTURE.  Goodness, that makes all the difference.


I did watch a ton of those video game shows like the Mario, Zelda, Sonic shows and Captain N growing up.  I was too young to realize they were mostly pretty bad, but I dunno, there are good things about them.  Like how outright freakishly surreal they are, which kind of appeals to me as an adult, ESPECIALLY the Mario cartoons (before they went all boring same-thing-every-episode caveman crap with Mario World).  Sonic SatAM is pretty incredible, too, and introduced tons of very likable characters into the Sonic mix, way better than what they ended up putting into the later games imho, even if their designs weren't exactly perfect or anything; their personalities were fanatastic.  I still wanna read those Sonic comics but never get around to it...  Also, Captain N still has one of my favorite cartoon intros ever.  It's like the ultimate nostalgia trip for me:




There's tons more great ones I could go on about like The Tick, Earthworm Jim, Angry Beavers and so on, and ones that I have mixed opinions about now but adored as a kid like Ren and Stimpy and Rocko's Modern Life... but yeah, I grew up watching the heck out of cartoons and I still watch the heck out of them to this day, but new and old.  (And sometimes REALLY old, like Looney Tunes or the older versions of Felix)... It's what lead me to a certain batch of cartoon ponies that has become easily one of my very favorite cartoons of all time.
