Favorite cartoons as a kid?

Here's a little drawing of Marvin the Martian because I always thought he was funny. I liked Daffy Duck too, and the Coyote and Roadrunner. Other cartoons I watched were He-Man, She-Ra, the Thundercats, Silverhawks, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and of course, the immortal Real Ghostbusters. I was the biggest ghosthead! I didn't like things like "Chip and Dale" and the Smurfs, or Rainbow Brite, or the Care Bears, very much at all. Speaking of Marvin, I was verrry verrry angrrry when a kid's show, Ranger Charlie and Rosco I think it was called, was shown instead of the Ghostbusters. The sacrilage! Do you have any fun childhood memories of watching cartoons?

Those would be good. I love anime now, at the time there wasn't much in the way of quality stuff available. I was stuck watching Network TV.

I remember Punky Brewster too. We probably are around the same age - I'm over 35, under 40.

@Rohvannyn Soleil as "Punky" -- was a real cutie-pie; and now, she is exquisitely lovely... Check out: Gorgeous Soleil Moon Frye...
Soleil Moon Frye is all grown up, but the actress still has love for her inner Punky Brewster. These days the star is hosting Home Made Simple on OWN and kee...

We had three channels, we watched Smurfs and some other things because well that was one of the few kid's shows on. That and Sesame Street, Mr Rodgers, Reading Rainbow (favorite there), Captain Kangaroo, and a couple others. I think we might have gotten an early Xmen version I liked as well.

Oh wow, I loved Reading Rainbow even though it was a bit juvenile for me. And I watched Sesame Street till a rather late age. It was the version that taught French instead of Spanish, because we were by the Canadian border.

I had TV from about age 6 to about age 22, then quit watching it again shortly after college. I do on a TV but I only watch anything on it once in a blue moon (maybe every few months?) and I don't miss it.

@Rohvannyn I have been watching TV a couple of times a month. I am thinking of keeping cable but only watching it every other month. I just want it there in case i have a burning desire t watch something. I don't miss TV when I don't watch it. I am going to try and see how long i can go without tv. i really have too much more constructive things i can do with my time!

@Marty1 How about ditching the cable and watching something on Netflix or Amazon if you really want to see it? You can usually download or stream things for maybe two dollars an episode, and it costs a lot less than cable.

All I can think of is that crazy roadrunner. I think I had a puzzle of Deputy Dawg when I was a kid.

Our son was a ghosthead when he was little too! Let's see, Tom and Jerry was my favorite since Jerry was the cutest mouse ever! I remember our son would watch Animaniacs which was hilarious to me. You did a great rendering of Marvin the Martian!
