    I like Regular Show. Haven't seen much of Adventure Time but my cousin did recommend it. I guess I just haven't found a way to watch all the episodes in order yet.

    I mostly like things like Family Guy, South Park etc in the way of cartoons but I do also strangely enjoy some very very childish cartoons - About 3 years ago I went through a phase of being obsessed with Angry Beavers. I'm not sure where that came from but I think it was the interesting use of language, lots of playing around with words and phrases that I was obsessed with. The problem with it was it made me go through a phase of saying very strange things that I'd heard on Angry Beavers in normal conversations, I think the best example was when I complained that one of the guitar amps at university sounded like "a bag of cats gargling razor blades". I would feel very uncomfortable discussing this anywhere else other than here. :)

    Oh I love Angry Beavers! Anyone who things 'a bag of cats gargling razorblades' is a problematic description clearly has no imagination :) I often use the phrase 'daft as a box of kittens' when describing things.

    I loved the original Looney Tunes cartoons. I used to watch the re-runs of that all the time when I was a kid.

    I have to say that my favorite cartoon of all time was Doug. It was a Nicktoons cartoon which aired on Nickelodeon in the early and mid 1990's. I think one of the reasons I loved the cartoon so much was that the main character reminded me a lot of me. He was kind of socially awkward and was intimidated trying to function in school and in a new town. I used to watch the re-runs of it too even after they stopped airing new episodes.

    It was brought back later under the Disney banner I believe but it wasn't as good. All the characters were a few years older and had changed some, and it just didn't seem right.

    I went through a phase of staying up religiously to watch repeats of "The Magic Roundabout". Wouldn't have been so weird if I weren't in my mid teens. :p (And no, no drugs were involved)

    Nowadays, I love most cartoons. Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Dexters Laboratory, Johnny Bravo (even funnier when my mum was in the room - she hated him with a purple passion), Teen Titans (older version and "Go!"), and maybe a few others.

    Most definitely Adventure Time. If only I had the TV time to keep up with it these days!

    Angry Beavers was AWESOME :).
    I remember when I was leaving home, at 12h30 to go to school, but I really needed to watch it.

    Most of these are not current cartoons.

    Courage the Cowardly Dog
    Johnny Bravo
    Time Squad
    Tom and Jerry (original)
    Scooby Doo (original)
    Samurai Jack

    When I was younger...

    Brave Starr
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    Dino Riders
    Beast Wars: Transformers
    Conan the Adventurer
    He Man
    Doug

    I don't watch a lot of current ones but the first few episodes of Regular Show were quite good, but to me its gotten worst as the season have gone on. The same with Billy and Mandy, which started out ok.

    I thought Batman Beyond (also known as "Batman of the Future") was pretty good. For those who don't know it, it was a version of Batman set in 2039 - with an elderly Bruce Wayne having retired from crime fighting and tutoring a 17 year old named Terry McGinnis into becoming the new Batman.

    I found the series really good, with Bruce been a grouchy but compassionate father-figure to Terry - who was himself a 'bad kid' in the past (spending three months in juvenile detention at one point). I also liked the futuristic appearance of Gotham, some of the new villains were quite creative - with some paying homage to previous batman foes - and there were even some old faces returning such as Barbara Gordon (Batgirl) as the new Police Commissioner as well as the villains Ra's al Ghul and Victor Fries (Mr Freeze). Even Bane's strength-enhancing 'Venom' made a reappearance in the series



    I also liked how some of what Terry goes through in the series mimics what Bruce went through in the past.
    For example, Terry starts a relationship with a girl called Melanie, who is later revealed to be a part of a futuristic version of the "Royal Flush Gang". This later prompts Bruce to recall his own on/off relationship in the past with Selina Kyle (Catwoman).

    The show later got a Direct-to-video film called Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, in which Batman's most infamous adversary returned to Gotham (despite having apparently died years earlier, with Bruce witnessing his old foe's demise). Mark Hamill once again reprised his role as the voice of the Joker - having done it in both Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures.
