    This is for all of you who lived your childhood, entered the midst of adulthood, and forgot all those marvellous retro cartoons you used to watch :p

    The objective of this thread is to compile a list of as many 90's retro cartoons as possible. I'll start the list with a few, and other people can submit entries that will be discussed and either verified or rejected by other posters :)

    Finally we will all vote on the *Best Ever Retro Cartoon* and feel all the better for it [face_laugh]

    I will be updating the list everytime it grows substantially... let's aim for at least 100! Here's my thoughts so far:

    Ragidolls
    Bananaman
    Sharky and George
    Transformers (oh yes!)
    Thundercats
    Boy Meets World (not a cartoon, but still cool)
    Duck Tails
    Tailspin
    Mighty Mouse
    Danger Mouse
    The Clangers
    Rod and Emu (!)
    Count Duckula
    X-Men
    Spiderman
    Thomas the Tank Engine
    Who's Afraid of the Dark?
    Tots Tv (!)
    Morph
    Henry's Cat
    David the Gnome (any ideas on that one?)
    Muppet Babbies
    Family Ness (an old favourite)
    Teddy Ruxbin
    Ghostbusters (possibly the best)
    Wizzadora
    He-Man
    She-Ra
    Noel's House Party (Soz, couldn't resist it :D )
    Pole Position
    Poddington Peas
    Albert the 5th Muskateer
    Dogtanian
    Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles
    Mighty Max
    Itsa Bitsa
    Why Don't You (lame I know)
    Animaniacs

    Clarissa Explains All...
    Goosebumps
    Rude Dogs and the Dweebs

    *sniffs*

    i smell someone with far too much time to compile that list, but i wouldn't be surprised if you had that saved on your PC :p

    It has to be Teenage Mutant Turtles for the best, the only really craze i got caught up and i loved it (it's meant to be coming back you know)

    I contest the inclusion of the Simpsons as a kids cartoon, it is so much more

    ok you've changed the thread's point while i was mid-post so i contest its inclusion as retro when any one with sense will tell you know it's better than ever!

    SHOW LOVE TO THE SIMPSONS!

    I've got Transformers on DVD [face_love]

    Henry's Cat ruled. As did Roobarb and Custard.

    Pigeon Street was also pretty awesome.

    good executive decision there boss, the simpsons is the best show ever not some crappy retro show which we like cos we're students and it's kitsch (sp?)

    SHOW LOVE TO THE SIMPSONS! (and MCR's sig, i love that episode)

    How about Ulysses, Pirates of Black Water, Ludwig, Super Ted and The Mysterious Cities of Gold?

    Not sure if these were around in the 90s but there are some of my favs from my younger days, which were a long long time ago ;)

    EDIT: Oh yeah, Chorlton and the Wheelies :D

    80s.

    Mysterious cities of gold was the best ever.

    Ullyses 31 I think it was called.

    Bod?

    Chock-a-Block?

    My top ten:

    1. Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles
    2. Thundercats
    3. Ghostbusters
    4. Animaniacs (controversially among my split personalities)
    5. Rainbow (i still have an original zippy dressed (by me) in a man united shirt)
    6. Tiny Toons
    7. Scooby-Doo
    8. Catch the Pigeon (you have to sing the tune when you type that :D )
    9. Saved by the bell
    10. Mike and Angelo (patent pending)

    i want to put sabrina the teenage witch in (damn she was hot from the perspective of a 13 year old :D and Salem is nearly as good a character as Bender) but i couldn't leave any of the others out. and yes i'm aware how sad it was to be watching such shows at 13 but it was on saturday mornings so i could just lay in bed and drool over Sabrina (i'm shallow but i'm happy)

    My mates and I wanted to go on Knightmare, but we were always too pissed up on cider and we couldn't walk in straight lines, so we'd probably get 'sliced up' or something... [face_plain]

    i always wanted it to be real so the people never made it out alive, that would be my type of game [face_mischief]

    I seem to have a memory of 'serving wenches' in push-up brassieres for some reason... I'm sure they were in Knightmare somewhere... :confused:

    I always thought the people would do better without that stupid helmet so they could see where they were going - but then I guess they'd see the game for waht it really was. A blue screen.
