What was your favorite cartoon when you were a child?

Why did you like it? or Why do you like it?

My favorite cartoon was Scooby Doo - A pup named Scooby Doo - It is still my favorite cartoon. I think I love it very much because I like dogs. I had a boxer dog, and I made a similarity between Scooby Doo and her. And also, I liked most the child's version (characters) than the others like "What's New Scooby Doo". I liked the moment when Bado Maloso appeared in the episodes, he wasn't my favorite character though. In my opinion, it has been one of the best cartoons of all times.

What is yours?

I think it was "Tom&Jerry". I was so addicted to watching the series that even if my mother called me for lunch or dinner, I couldn't even listen to her and lastly, with anger, she used to take the cable out of the TV leaving me crying the whole day. :)

Good question!!  When I was young, I had a huge fascination with the X-Men cartoon from the 1990's.  I really enjoyed the animation and art-style of this cartoon.  

Favorite X-Men backthen would have to be Bishop the time traveler, and my beloved Storm.

Oh, the nostalgia!

My favourites were Looney Tunes and that cool yellow hustling fellow called Top Cat :)

That's really hard 'cause I used to love a lot of cartoons. But one of my favorite it was The Powerpuff Girls. I used to watch with my cousins and after watching we pretend to be the Powerpuff Girls, I was Blossom and my cousins were Bubbles and Buttercup, and we used to play all day long. Good times! I still like to watch it sometimes 'cause it's really funny. There are lots of jokes that I didn't get it when I was a kid and I get it now though.

Funny thing, I didn't know the Powerpuff Girls' names in English till now and it's really different from Portuguese. "Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup = Lindinha, Florzinha e Docinho" hahaha good to know.

I don't think any regular series on television was wonderful, but I was completely enchanted by Disney's Dumbo. I did like "Rocky and Bullwinkle." I don't think The Simpsons or South Park count because they're not really for children, and they didn't exist when I was a kid.

When I was a kid, there was a sort of cartoon that I thought was stupid--but I watched it anyway. It was called "Winky Dink and You." The gimmick was that you had to buy a "magic window," a sheet of plastic that went on the television screen, and four "magic crayons" (black, green, red, and yellow) that were soft so that the marks could be fairly easily wiped off. The "magic window" stuck to the TV screen by static electricity. The cartoon was the most crudely animated cartoon I've every seen, not even one frame per second. At various points in the story Winky Dink would encounter problems, which you would deal with by drawing very simple line drawings on the "magic window." Perhaps you would draw a straight line across a river, which was a bridge that Winky Dink could cross. Or perhaps you would draw four lines to form a box around the villain, which became a cage in which to jail him.

We understood that our drawing didn't really do anything, and sometimes enjoyed not drawing what we were supposed to draw, and watching Winky Dink cross the river anyway.

There must have been thousands of households in which children caused clean-up work for parents by drawing directly on the TV screen with ordinary crayons!
