Nope. Specially not the Tom and Jerry Kids one. I was a big fan of Tom & Jerry so I would goble everything Tom & Jerry. Heck, I used to drink Tom & Jerry chocolate milk all the time just because it had Tom & Jerry on the carton! Though I would probably get bored of it if I watched it today.

I also used to be big into Power Rangers when I was younger, but I've recently watched the first episode and I've never been so bored in my life.

I do still watch Pokemon and Dragon Ball. Another two shows that I used to watch religiously.

In that case you probably would've loved MS paint version too.

Watching chocolate milk definitely loses some of it's appeal when you grow up.

I didn't know they could go cheaper than they did.

Now that's a scary thought.

You obviously haven't watched it under the right frame of mind.

Used to watch a lot of T&J cartoons growing up, as well as a lot of Walter Lance cartoons that probably couldn't be aired today without a lot of heavy editing. Hell, I used to spend most of my Sat. mornings watching WB cartoons! Also liked some HB and Filmation, though looking back on those cartoons with modern eyes makes me wonder why on earth for.

More recently, it's still WB - Pinky & The Brain, Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures. Also like me some anime, too, especially Slayers. But narrowing everything down to just one character? That's tough. If I'm out somewhere and come across WB characters my interest picks up, and I'll probably be looking for her:

I always really liked Heathcliff. What sets him apart from other cartoon characters is that he's an unabashedly terrible role model. While Bugs Bunny would always have some flimsy excuse for unleashing his wrath on someone (and then he'd say "you realize, this means war!"), Heathcliff is very often the instigator of whatever comflict occurs in a given episode, and unlike Bart and Homer he almost never gets his comeuppance, because he's just that good. The "if you can back it up you can get away with anything" theme from this show was a refreshing change from all of the other syrupy crap that was on in the early 80s.

The Red Guy from Cow and Chicken was always my number one. I can't get enough of his crossdressing, buttwalking and disturbing moaning. I also love Etno from Space Goofs, his voice (Maurice LaMarche) just makes me swoon.

Unfortunately, cable isn't yet in our household budget, so we're stuck with whatever we can find on network TV. OTOH, from what little I'm seeing in the way of new animation showing today, I don't think I'm missing much...

Brock Sampson. Though William Murderface is a close second. Or if we're harkening back to the the olden days of yore, I was always a pretty big Shaggy fan.

I get compared to him a lot.

"Y'know, you kinda remind me of that guy from Scooby-Doo. What's-his-name..."
"Shaggy."
"Yeah. Right. That's the one."
