    I didn't see the entire list, but what makes me wonder is what makes them judge these shows? Do they get high and then just start naming cartoons off the top of their heads and put it on a list or are they actually sitting down and thinking about it?

    Mixed feelings as I'm still perusing the list. How is Inspector Gadget ranked ahead of MOTU? Some of the cartoons didn't even make it through a full season. How can they even be on the list?

    The very idea that G.I.Joe is somehow a better show than Justice League Unlimited makes me laugh heartily, in the most mocking manner imaginable.

    Wow, this list just seems to be totally random. There really seems little reasoning was given for what beat out another. They seem to give credit to nostalgia in some places, cult followings in others, and then random other reasons that never actually have any relation to anything else on the list. Oh, and Adult Swim is getting a bit too much respect there, among other things.

    Oh well, a good place just to read a little about a bunch of cartoons.

    Not one bit. Though, that's true of almost any opinion IGN has nowadays.

    Why is Tom and Jerry so low on that list? That should be in the Top 20 at least, especially compared to Invader ZIM, Naruto, or MUPPET BABIES.

    And I personally think the Transformers should have switched spots with GI Joe. I love the Joe cartoon, but I felt G1 was better animation wise, while Joes kept with the Comics (Excluding Cold Slither). But JLU should have topped them both.

    It's obvious that BTAS, Loony Tunes, South Park (This should not have been in the top 10. I'd say more around the 15-11 area), Family Guy (Which should not even be close to the top of the list)and the Simpsons. I hope Bugs gets the 1 spot with BTAS in the top 5.

    But no Superjail love?

    I'm not clicking NEXT 99 more times. The list fails on the basis there isn't a condensed version of it somewhere. Eff them.

    I'm going to guess that they are still working on the list and will post the rest soon. Somebody let me know when numbers 10-1 are posted.

    QFT. I'm not even bothering with this @#$%.

    Although I do think that every cartoon fan should at least attempt to make a list what they believe to be the top 25 best cartoons, just once in their life. It's not an easy task.

    You could ask 100 people and you'd get 100 lists. And I can gaurentee you that someone will cry bloody murder because of the placements of their personal favorites. :D

    Tell that to the Joe fans.

    Heathen.

    The problem is a lot of these cartoons, Joe and TF included, were written and animated in a haphazard manner to sell toys or placate small children. Their "quality" is really more a matter of nostalgia.

    It's not until the late 80s early 90s, when Disney launched DuckTails, and WB Tiny Toons, that they started making cartoons again* with an eye towards quality, making the show more than just another commercial.

    *When I say again, I mean, at least in the American market, for the first time. Really, most of the old cartoons (Hanna Barbera and Filmation esp) were weak too, with a handful of exceptions. The best stuff, like Tom and Jerry and Looney Tunes, were often recycling old theatrical cartoons. When they tried using the characters in stories made just for tv, you ended up with a noticably inferior product.
