I feel like the only person in my age group who can't gel with even pre-movie SpongeBob. Every so often, I try to watch a classic episode and I still don't end up laughing.

Also, I'm surprised, but pleased, to see EEnE beat Powerpuff.

Spongebob has some great standout moments and really lovable voice acting, but it's never been a show I've particularly cared about. I watched it back in the day because it was on but I'd never consider purposefully revisiting it or buying the DVDs.

Happy to see Courage almost made it to the end! Now there's a show I want to get on video someday, though it's annoying that they didn't include the pilot on any of the releases...

Surprised by how far Rick and Morty went. I thought /co/ despised the show thanks to the fanbase and April Fools delaying a Jack episode, especially considering Steven Universe couldn't even make it past round 2.

The fine people on /co/ made a Suffering chart for various cartoon and comic characters.

I've been rewatching Chowder for the past month or so, and I'm finishing it now. Looking at it now after some distance, and after finally seeing every episode, I think that the show started to take a turn for the worst partway through season 2, a little  before the halfway point. One of the big drawbacks is when the show just stopped caring about the distinction between Mung Daal being Chowder's apprentice and just started making him and Truffles his parents. The writing started to increasingly to go off the walls and build on the show's worst traits (loudness, grossness, overextending gags) rather than its best.

But for a while, it really was a funny little show, and would have been great for kids if it caught on a little more. And it's funny, a lot of us were hoping this would be a step in the right direction for Cartoon Network, after a couple of years of mediocre originals. But the show got lost in the CN Real shuffle, and doesn't really seem to fit in with the current crop of CN shows. It's still a good show, but feels a little out of touch.

I think I've mentioned before that I've been watching The Flintstones on and off for a while now, putting an episode or two on at night if I'm having trouble falling asleep. It works really well for that, as it's soothing to hear these voices and music cues I've been familiar with all my life before I knock out, and it's still pretty funny too. Definitely a product of its time though, and the last two seasons get increasingly gimmicky and skew a bit younger. Not that the show was very adult, but part of its charm early on was that it felt a little more mature than its contemporary series at the time, even among other live-action sitcoms. The first 4 seasons are genuinely good stuff, and the core characters are rightfully iconic. I'm glad to have the complete series set, and that I got to experience the show in full.

I think the next series I'm going to use for this method is The Brave & the Bold. I ordered the first season a few weeks ago (albeit the half sets, since it was cheaper to get them that way, but I think that I'll order season 2 in full), and I've been wanting to get to it again since. I'll pop the first disc in soon.

TB&TB is an excellent show to sit down and unwind to. It's just so enjoyable on every level. It takes a few episodes before they begin to take their own concept seriously, the first few episodes feel a bit too tongue in cheek and openly self aware for my liking, but it quickly hits its groove after them.
