Movies/TV Underrated Nostalgic Cartoons?

Are there any cartoons that you loved as a kid and still love today--but no one seems to remember or appreciate them?

 

I got the idea for this topic when I was watching my old tapes of The Cartoon Adventures of Larryboy. It was basically a tribute to the old cheesy superhero cartoons--with some good lessons as well. Unfortunately, it obviously didn't do so well, since it lasted only four episodes...:(

 

There were also chapter books based on the cartoon, a few of which were novelizations of the episodes...all I can say is that those books sure were weird :lol:

Futurama.

 

That show disverved so much better. With a higher budget and better writers it would be so much better. 

 

"Nothing is impossible, not if you can imagine it." And also multiverse of which Futurama had.

Teen Titans, Megas XLR, Samurai Jack, and --- Okay, that's all I can think of at the moment! I loved all three shows, and think all three deserved SOOO much more! All three had awesome writing, excellent cast of voice actors, and interesting stories.

...Futurama? That series ended just this year. How is that nostalgic?

Some probably wouldn't consider this overrated, since it's got quite a cult following even to this day, but it seemed to me that Invader Zim was always underappreciated by the mainstream. It truly deserved a longer run than it got, and I can't believe Nickelodeon - the network that let Rocko's Modern Life and Ren and Stimpy get away with so much - pussed out and forbade creator Jhonen Vasquez from going in the direction he wanted to. Sad, sad times.

 

Other than that, I really liked Rocket Power despite its horrendously stereotyped portrayal of West Coasters. Guilty pleasure, I guess...

I remember a nostalgia cartoon that I loved so much. Static Shock was probably one of my favorite superhero cartoons, I just wish some people still remember it.

 

Static Shock? That show about the likeable guy in an urban environment who gains electricity-based powers and uses them to be completely awesome despite increasingly powerful and bizarre enemies?

Definitely gotta be The Ripping Friends from the same guys, who created Ren & Stimpy! Also Megas XLR was one of those cartoons that I really loved! :)

 

Too bad that both of these cartoons were discontinued very early! :(

Tom and Jerry.

 

While it may not be underrated, it's still nostalgic.

Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century, it didn't run very long(I think somewhere right around 26 episodes) but it's really good and surprisingly well written for a Saturday morning cartoon going off the premise of "let's take Sherlock Holmes and use some contrived "he was frozen and we revived him" plot to put him in the future.

Animaniacs..
I'm not sure if it's because I'm a Brit or not, but none of my friends seem to know about this show's existence.

Some of them know about Pinky and the Brain, but none of the other brilliant characters like the Warner Brothers (and sister), Slappy the Squirrel or the Goodfeathers.

Which is kinda upsetting because I don't think there's a cartoon that's smarter or funnier than Animaniacs.
