I watched cartoons constantly as a kid, here are the ones I can think of off the top of my head:

The Smurfs, Alvin & the Chipmunks, He-Man, She-Ra, The Transformers, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rainbow Brite, Slimer! And the Real Ghostbusters, Scooby Doo, Thundercats, and the most holy of animated television shows...The Simpsons. (When I was seven or eight I had a huge collection of Simpsons toys that, sadly, was wiped out when our basement flooded many years ago.)

And to think, if not for my dad's love of animation, I would have seen only a couple of those.

It wasn't animated, but I loved the Krofft shows Dr. Shrinker, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, and Wonderbug (I think that's what it was called).

All-time favorites were Voltron, Transformers, G.I.Joe. Also does anyone else remember, I think it was called the USA cartoon express w/ Space Ghost & maybe the Fantstic Four, Jabber Jaws & all these really weird retro cartoons, I think there was one called hairbair or something, I can't remember but I loved all of them.

My list:

Transformers
GI Joe
He-Man
Thundercats
Mask

One more but I can't remember the name of it. It had 3 main characters in it. A guy kind of like He-Man with a sword that was made of energy. A woman with some kind of power. And a big Chewbacca type guy. Does anyone remember what the name of this cartoon was? I think I remember watching it in the early/middle 80's.

-Tom & Jerry (the original MGM ones, not the ones H-B did years later, and particularly the really awful ones done by Filmation)

-The Magilla Gorilla Show, which included the Sheriff Bing-Bing-Bing! Rabbit stuff, and the three musketeer dogs (Yippee, Yappee, and Yahooey)

-Huckleberry Hound

-Marvel Superheroes (I forgot what it was called, but it had guys like The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Thor--all done in really, really crude animation).

-Woody Woodpecker

-Looney Tunes

It's too bad a lot of these cartoons are butchered and censored today because of its so-called violence and that they aren't "PC."

I'm 21 and I still watch it when it's on tv, it has imo the best story every written.
