Default 10 Cartoons that changed my life.

Ten cartoons that shaped my life:

1. The Simpsons- No one cartoon has said as much about American culture as the Simpsons. It is simply the smartest show on TV. Amid its cutting edge humor and intellectualism, it's interesting to note that the core of the show is a nuclear family, which maintains some traditional values.

2. GI Joe- No one cartoon has taught me more about loyalty, leadership, and how to survive a fiery disaster than GI Joe. Forget realism- GI Joe delivers you 20 minutes of up to 3 different battles, each of which teaches a moral lesson.

3. Robotech- This cartoon has it all- action, romance, adventure, humor. Robotech is an adult cartoon- they never meant it for children, but how can you resist watching a jet fighter transform into a robot! Robotech is like putting Transformers and Days of Our Lives in a blender, a perfect cartoon to watch in your early teens.

4. Ren and Stimpy- Ren and Stimpy. Rocko and Heifer. Beavis and Butthead. The cartoon duo should really only take up one slot, but few of these taught us the lessons of friendship and powdered toast that Ren and Stimpy did. Yes- Ren and Stimpy were gay, and perhaps it was another perspective into that lifestyle as well.

5. Southpark- Sex and the City and Desperate Housewives brought the female foursome into TV series formulas, but the boys in Colorado had it first! Southpark teaches tremendous social lessons in the same half hour that it rips celebrities to shreds, and offends us in every way imaginable. Southpark is brilliant TV, and if you are mature enough to understand the absurdity, you can learn a great deal from 4 4th graders.

6. Voltron- The five man formula has been a staple of Japanese cartoons. Voltron is no different. Like all five man Japanese toons, Voltron's key issue is teamwork. Plus they say "Let's go Voltron Force!" out of sync every time they form Voltron, which is hilarious.

7. Lord of the Rings- Ralph Bakshi's masterpiece, so snubbed by the fan film and contemporary fans, influenced my life tremendously. It was what got me into the books as a child, and it would echo through my life as I was a huge Legolas fan since the cartoon. I went from Tolkien Elves to Gygax Elves and now Space Elves (Eldar).

8. Watership Down- I will never look at rabbits the same, ever. Great cartoon, wonderfully cerebral and introspective.

9. Thundercats- Similar Japanese teamwork formula, but this time promoting ethnic diversity. Thundercats! Ho!! And don't forget Thundercats bloopers, some of the most hilarious [stuff] ever.

10.Battle of the Planets- G-Force!! Again, Japanese team of 5, but also taught me about the darker side of things as a young child. Raven (Jason in the American version) gets hooked on drugs, has a violent temper, and gets drugged and shot in the head by a drag queen. Fascinating lesson for a 6 year old me to learn. Power struggles, suicide wishes, and kamikaze tactics gave this cartoon some real gravity.

Could you name 10 cartoons that shaped your life?

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles
Bucky O Hare
Defenders Of The Earth
Street Sharks

Any of these sort of Cartoons....That is what society is lacking. In Britain, they don't seem to show cartoons like that any more. They are too violent or something.

Now, When I was younger, I idolised thosae cartoons. They gave me hero's dammit!!! Something to aspire to. Its like, Yeah!!! I want to be Raphael!

What do kids in Britain have today....Tracey Beaker. A Stroppy, self centred, annoying little brat that needs a damned good kicking.

Thats why we must bring back Cult 80's cartoons.

No love, it's GREAT Britain....the clue's in the name

Thanx to Kais for the sig
