Like many kids who grew up from the late 80s through the 90s, I spent most of my time watching cartoons, and the rest of my time with a game controller in my hands. Now, as an adult... I pretty much do the same thing.
In short, this is basically a summary of my life from age 2-15.
This list is organized based on my memory of when I watched a particular show. Sometimes I didn't catch a show until a different network picked up reruns.
Transformers and TMNT kick-started a lifetime of animation obsession. Disney afternoon solidified it.
In third grade SatAM Sonic came along and started a long love affair with all things Sonic that will never be tarnished, no matter how many craptastic games Sega puts out. During this time, Nickelodeon really started to come into its own.
In Junior High, a wonderful thing happened. Toonami premiered. Followed a few years down the road by Adult Swim. Once upon a time, these programing blocks were worth watching. Not so much anymore. Regardless, Toonami started an anime infatuation that would persist until around 2007.
