Just out of curiosity GSF, what would your top 10 (or top 5) look like? If you don't mind me asking.

Good choices. :)

Do you consider anime to be a separate thing, though?

Half of that list wasn't even anime. ;)

Good choices, btw.

Well, we tried to be objective about it (which is why Jake Long wasn't in the top 50), so really, anything is game!

Thank you, darklord.

Oh, I do. I forgot to retype that it would take me forever to combine the two because my phone ate the post. I might make a hybrid list..then run to Walmart to buy all the series

To be fair, I don't even think that AD is top 50 material. I wasn't a big fan of the first season, but I liked season 2 more. Which was one of the reasons I made a corner image for it on toonzone. I really like the art style and the different tone the show took in season two than one. Season one's art style felt too generic for me, along with the story structure.

With that said, can't wait to see what else is on this list.

Jake Long? Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

I know the review wasn't overly positive or anything, but still; kinda sounds like I'm the only one here who doesn't like it. Eh, different strokes for different folks I guess. I agree on the art style though; it does look nice, I'll give it that. But damn, this show was as bloody boring as they came IMO, and the writing could get downright painful at times.

Otherwise, good list so far. It warms my heart to see some love for Cow and Chicken; truly an underrated fixture of CN's early years. The writing was top notch, and villains just don't come any more entertaining than The Red Guy. I mean, the guy uses pantyhose as coffee filters. A+ for creativity, to be sure.

Yeah, I kinda pushed for Cow & Chicken on here. It doesn't really do anything special, but everything it does is top notch and I think a show like that deserves a mention.

As for Jake Long, well I personally like the second season and thought it was enjoyable, but the first season hurts it a lot on the list.

Also, this started as a top 50, and we kind of expanded it when we had shows overflowing our selections so we settled on 65. I think the first 15 might be a bit hit or miss with some people, but there are no outright bad choices.

Can't say I've ever really enjoyed it, myself. Or W.I.T.C.H. But it's not my list, and the other people involved with making it know a lot more about cartoons than I do.

I'm sure there were a lot of debates on how to rank certain shows on this list. I mean, it's a given since I would assume that giving them random numbers without reason would be the dumbest thing ever. I'm confident that the fine crew here fought tooth and nail for their series to make the list and what ranking they deserve.
