I'll vote for Pokemon also as one of my favorites. Along with classic Johnny Quest, Scooby Doo, Simpsons, Robotech: The Macross Saga, Tenchi Muyo (the Japanese storyline not the crappy Tenchi Universe American storyline) and The Maxx (while it lasted).

Wow, this is a tough one. I'm going to split this (roughly) into two camps, "When I was younger" and "More recent years". There are quite a few cartoons that are sometimes shown these days but I have not seen them in years.

When I was Younger:
Jonny Quest (for its time, and perhaps any time, one of the best)
Super Friends
Sealab 2020 (very few people remember this Hanna Barbera gem)
The Herculoids
Valley of the Dinosaurs
Tarzan (Filmation)
Flash Gordon (Filmation)
Thundarr the Barbarian

More Recent Years:
The Simpsons
South Park
The Family Guy
Dr. Katz
The Critic
Ren & Stimpy
Space Ghost Coast to Coast/Cartoon Planet
The Brak Show (Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim")
Sealab 2021 (Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim")
Aqua Teen Hunger Force (Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim")
Home Movies (Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim")

Okay, you see I have referenced the Adult Swim block from Cartoon Network quite often. If you are fortunate enough to have Cartoon Network, look for this on Sunday nights around 9 PM Central. Home Movies (which is by the people who made Dr. Katz for Comedy Central) is a witty show about a group of kids who make their own movies on video. The characters are great and the quick paced banter really makes the show. The Brak Show is a bizarre mix of Space Ghost Coast to Coast style bits of old footage re-used (Zorak also appears) along with new character animation set against photographic (rather than painted) backgrounds. The basic idea is that it is something akin to the 50's family sitcom (in fact each Brak Show has a title that reflects the theme, like "Leave it to Brak" or "Brak Knows Best"). His inexplicably diminutive, Spainish father steals many a scene, as does the gigantic, robotic neighbor, Mr. Thundercles. Aqua Teen Hunger Force is by far the most bizarre of the mix, a super-hero team consisting of anthropomorphic fast food (a shake, a box of fries, complete with a goatee, and a meatball). Finally, my personal favorite is Sealab 2021. In the vein of the Space Ghost vehicles from Cartoon Planet, footage from the 70's sci-fi cartoon, Sealab 2020 is recut with additional characters and irrevrant dialogue to make one of the funniest cartoons ever! Eric Estrada lends his voice to Marco, one of the regulars on 2020, and of course on 2021, and his stereotype role has not escaped the attention of the writers and animators, as Marco was once shown wearing a police motorcycle helmet, and in another episode, his transportation cart had flashing red and blue lights. Check this stuff out if you can! Home Movies shows every week, as does Space Ghost Coast to Coast, while the other features are rotated so you don't get all of them each week. Another feature of this block of shows is "Henry Birdman, Attorney at Law", which I have yet to catch. Using the same techniqes as Space Ghost, Brak, and Sealab, classic HB character Birdman is given an irrevrant new lease on life as a lawer defending various HB characters from Booboo Bear to Dr. Benton Quest! If anyone has seen any of his cases, please say something here!

One final note, for those who love Space Ghost, you may have seen the Space Ghost Coast to Coast action figure set (with desk, coffee mug, note cards and chair) in both regular and "ghost mode" translucent figure styles from a couple of years ago. Well, the rest of the cast is finally being made! Yes, Brak, Zorak, and Moltar are on the way (sometime after the first of the year)! Brak will have interchangeable hands, Moltar will have his director's control console, and Zorac will come with his piano! I can't wait to have this set of figures!

What happened to it?

I think that there's a network rule that if there's more than one Star Trek actor of a show, it cannot remain on television.

By the way, we (Wheeee!!!) (http://www.sirstevesguide.com/vbportal/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1259&highlight=cartoons) covered this, kinda, before...

Rocko would be on my list too! I can't believe I forgot that show... Nick needs to produce more eps of that one.

i used to love watching those Nick cartoons (Ren & Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life etc) but the ones they have now kind of stink. With the exception of The Angry Beavers of course, that show kicks.

For some reason I like Spongebob Squarepants in an empty headed, idiotic sort of way.

Right on Darth Rage! Robotech and Star Blazers are great choices.

I will also add Fushigiyugi : Mysterious Play to the mix. I cannot give this anime higher praise. This is just an awesome cartoon.

Does no-one here like the Mobile Suit Gundam universe? I know that Gundam wing was a bad choice to bring overseas first, but (most of) the rest of the series is great. I would humbly suggest that anyone who liked the superdimensional series(robotech in the US) and space cruiser yamato(starblazers in US) check out the original Gundam series- it RULES!!
