    Of those you mentioned, I saw;
    He-Man and The Masters of the Universe
    Ducktales - the only Disney show I've ever enjoyed!
    Sonic The Hedgehog - I loved the Super Mario Bros. Cartoons aswell!
    Inspector Gadget
    The Smurfs
    Garfield and Friends - The Garfield Cartoon voice is iconic at least, I love it!
    Heathcliff - hilarious!
    The Smurfs

    I hate;
    The Simpsons - rap it up already, it's done!
    Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers
    Beavis and Butt-Head
    Armageddon will soon be here,
    the sinners will meet their fate.
    But I am calm and without fear,
    as I feed upon my hate.

    You have Centurions twice mate. I'd have to say Batman:TAS would be at my number one. There hasn't been a cartoon as well designed or written for years, it's a truly awesome series. Plus Justice League and JLU would be close to the top of my list, as well as the truly brilliant Samurai Jack, which is a serious contender for my favourite, but Bats just edges it.

    Reboot was good fun but in all honesty you have some terrible cartoons in there I mean The Raccoons was truly dreadful, as was The Smurfs and most of the Disney series' were dire. Where's Visionaries, Jayce & the Wheeled Warriors, Ulysses 31 & Inumanoids in your list??

    Alpha.

    Some of the ones listed were never aired here in ALOBAMER. I feel robbed. I knew about but never got to see Visionaries and Wheeled Warriors.

    I think your list is fine. I feel sure you're taking into account how much you enjoyed them when you were young as well as now. Smurfs may be be the best but when we were young that show was huge for a while.

    Another I don't see is Silverhawks which was really big around here during it's time.

    Out of the ones you mentioned these are the ones I loved when I was younger and still really enjoy:

    Animaniacs
    Batman The Animated Series
    Beavis and Butt-Head
    Garfield and Friends
    The Simpsons
    South Park
    Tenchi
    The Tick
    Tiny Toon Adventures


    These ones haven't aged so well but I still like them overall:

    Beast Wars: Transformers
    Freakazoid
    GI Joe
    She-Ra: Princess of Power
    The Smurfs
    Transformers
    X-Men

    I loved these, but they've completely lost their appeal to me as an adult:

    Ren and Stimpy
    Sailor Moon
    Spider-Man

    I haven't seen any of these in at least five years (over ten for most of them) and I can't imagine I'd like any of them very much now:

    Bravestarr
    COPS
    Count Duckula
    Doug
    Ducktales
    Gargoyles
    Inspector Gadget
    The Raccoons
    The Real Ghostbusters
    Talespin
    Thundercats

    These weren't mentioned but would definitely make it on my top 50 list:

    Dino-Riders (the first three episodes anyway)
    Eek the Cat
    Muppet Babies
    Rugrats
    Rocko's Modern Life
    TMNT
    Voltron

    Yeah I'm definitely more of a kid of the late 80s - early 90s (born in 84). I was late to the whole MOTU thing and never got into the Filmation toon.

    I have to be honest. With the exception of Visionaries, which I've heard of but know absolutely nothing about, I've never heard of any of these outside of he-man.org. Were these ever released in the States? They seem to be very popular though so I'll have to check them out sometime.

    See I find it intriguing how regional some of these things are. We didn't have cable and we had horrible reception so all we could catch were 3 local channels. Therefore Silverhawks reruns were some of the only action cartoons I could watch regularly as a wee one. I really liked the show, but never got any of the toys. They were really hard to come by and none of the kids I knew were into it so I'd have nobody to play with.

    I have a similar story regarding X-Men. I remember being ecstatic when the X-Men cartoon came out. I discovered X-Men through a Marvel Superheroes coloring book when I was seven. My parents bought me a few of the comics, but the toys were not available in my area (a middle-of-nowhere town in South Carolina). For a couple years my older brother would occassionally buy a new X-Men toy and ship it to me from Pennsylvania. So I was the only kid in my area who had X-Men toys or really even knew what it was. I introduced a few of my friends to it. We watched the first episode of the cartoon together, then we played X-Men in the back yard. It was one of the coolest cartoon related experiences of my youth.

    Oh I forgot about these. I used to love all of these. I have no idea how I'd feel about them now. Have you heard the Dinosaucers' theme recently? It is so awesomely cheesy!

    Oh yeah I love C.O.P.S and Galaxy Rangers. I would really love to have the complete seasons of C.O.P.S though since all thats out is the first season which really sucks.

    I think Ducktales is the best Disney's tv show ever shown! ...but not only Disney, I think in absolute!

    In Italy we will never have the complete DVD collection...only the first box...
