    A classic bit of nostalgia there, Pink & The Brain rules. If I had to suggest another it would have to be Thundercats, it was pretty legendary. http://youtube.com/watch?v=fXaecyM2_1s

    Smurfs, only 5th?? What a shame. You should see the original French version with vocal and everything :)

    Yeah… Schtroumpf in French. It takes some time to remember that spelling.

    Classic! I watched everyone of these. Definitely my top 5. Maybe Scooby-Doo should be in Part 2 though.

    You forgot ‘ducktales’?! for shame.
    actually there were alot left out – but for a top 5 this is a pretty good start. Part 2 may have to be followed with a part 3 and 4, honestly.

    Snorks, Scooby Doo, Chip & Dale’s Rescue Rangers, Jem etc……

    just food for thought :P

    Fraggle Rock had to be one of our favorites. In fact, we were just talking about getting some DVDs for the winter.

    Well, over here we had japanese Robots included. There’s one called “Mazinger Z” (and I think in english its something like “Tranzor Z”). I don’t rknow the real impact of that cartoon in the US, but it was huge over here.

    I know!!! It was so hard to pick just 5. Maybe I have to do a Part 2. Animaniacs were awesome… I forgot about that one. I love just cartoons.

    Awesome top 5 – I had totally forgotten about Gummy Bears! I’m not sure what I’d bump out to sneak Animaniacs in there, but it’s high on my list for sure… nice to see someone else who remembers (and likes) Fraggle Rock ;)

    OMG, The Simpsons are the best!!! Good call. But they kinda don’t even compare to these. ;)

    Why are you leaving “The Simpsons” behind ?

    Oh, I dunno. I might have slipped in the Animaniacs in there somewhere…
