I was a fan of:

Thundercats
Scooby Doo
Mask
Duckula
Defenders of the Earth
X-Men
(And probably many others I can’t think of right now…)

Less childhood-ey, I discovered the Jackie Chan Adventures about 5 years ago, and have been a fervent fan ever since.

What were yours?

God yeah, not after that hideous crappy-doo turned up.
And yes, I forgot Spiderman and his Amazing Friends.

Oh, of course I loved the Warner Bros cartoons
Tom & Jerry (before they got nice to each other)
some others I can only vaguely remember.

Most of the Kroft stuff, though it doesn’t really count as cartoons.  It was cartoonish, though.

reruns of the Warner Bro’s cartoons
Rocko’s Modern Life
The Ren and Stimpy Show (first two seasons)
Shirt Tales (it was really lame but it had cute animals)
The Simpsons (though they weren’t on Saturday mornings)
Danger Mouse

Hey, I still know all the words to the theme tune (I was young, it just sank into my brain)

I liked Pink Panther, Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny et al too.
In fact I probably watched too much Bugs Bunny as a kid, because it was my dad’s excuse to watch it. I like the bullfight one best…

Actually, the Muppet Babies were the first I knew of the Muppets.

Nope. We adults who watch cartoons are really cosmopolitan and well rounded. Or something.

Muppet Babies.  Nobody mentioned them yet.

I never watched Rocky & Bullwinkle as a kid, but I like them now.

Anybody else remember Kid Video?  With that guy from Wham that wasn’t George Michael?  No?  Good.

Edit: D’oh!  Someone just mentioned them!

Boo, you really missed out on the Muppets then.  Granted, some of the episodes were cringe worthy (Mark Hamill was never a guest, didn’t happen), but it was still lots of fun.  Damnit, I miss Jim. downer
