Cartoons hold a special place in most everyone’s heart. Whether you watched them as a child, were educated culturally by Disney or they’re at the center of some of your most cherished family memories, it’s really of no consequence; we can’t really imagine a scenario where people dislike cartoons! Make no mistake, we’re suckers for nostalgia, and that’s in part why we’ve gone and put together a list of classic cartoons that still hold up today.
If you’d like to keep your memories as is, avoid these at all cost. But rest assured, they’re still all very awesome and they’ll make you feel young again at heart.
10. Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995)
There’s a small sect of comic books nerds who will argue avidly that it’s this interpretation of the Batman universe that is the most faithful to the comic books. That’s right; not Tim Burton’s Batman universe, not Joel Schumacher’s universe, or even Christopher Nolan’s hyper-realistic take on Gotham…no, the fans prefer Batman: The Animated Series, which aired on Fox from 1992-1995. Starring Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman, along with celebrated guest stars like Mark Hamill (His Joker is still the favorite interpretation of many fans, even in light of Heath Ledger’s posthumous Oscar win for the same role), Ed Asner and Ron Perlman, Batman: The Animated Series won a slew of Emmys during its time on the air, and is consistently ranked amongst the greatest animated series of all time. Special praise is often directed at the series’ darker tone (in relation to most programming aimed at children) and exceptional artwork and animation.
