2. Batman: The Animated Series (1992)
I think this should be at the number 1 spot. Although for a cartoon that ran for, what, four seasons at the no. 2 spot, that's gotta be one hell of an accomplishment.

This is the only place I've ever seen it called Batman of the Future. Everyone, and everywhere else its Batman Beyond. It's even on the picture.

This one and Mystery Science Theatre 3000 are why Adult Swim is the way it is. God bless 'em.

So good, someone decided it'd be a good idea to continue the series as a comic twelve years later. Starts at the end of the Third season.

33. Robotech (1985)
Made up of three separate series: SDF Macross, Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber Mospeada. So these three shows got mashed up and out came Robotech. It shouldn't exist, but here it is. My guess is it is made of pure awesome.

Wolverine actually managed to kill a few people in this X-men cartoon. Off-camera, though it may have been. That alone should earn this show a spot on this list.

Wizard Magazine came up with a list of the 100 best cartoons of all time. As far far as what's been aired in the US, atleast. It kind of sucks. Some great cartoons are missing, some should be higher and some shouldn't be on the list but w/e. Here's their list in order. from one to one-hundred.


Many thanks to the people that helped me in figuring out just what went where and correcting me where I went wrong. You've helped make this list better.

simpsons are my fav

I am surprised to see that you haven't listed any of Hanna Barbera's brilliant cartoons in 1990s like SWAT Kats, Pirates of Dark Water, and Jonny Quest Real Adventures.
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Jul 9 2:25
dude, atleast read the lists name. This list ain't mine and I wouldn't call it mine, since it more or less sucks. Wizard should stick with comic books, really.
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Jul 9 5:31
There is one sad subject I would like to mention. In my opinion, Hanna Barbera Productions never got the recognition they deserved with the action cartoons.
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Sep 11 6:03
A million thanks xpuser. You are my hero.

Own that magazine. If you're wondering why the 2003 TMNT isn't on there, the mage came out late August/early Sept. 2001. It was the regular Ren and Stimpy and only said Batman Beyond.
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at Jan 31 0:19
Also, it was the 1960s FF that was on the list, not the 90s.
Posted: 5 years, 1 month ago at Mar 7 20:44
Batman: The Animated Series definitely belongs so far up there! An incredible accomplishment in animation.
Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Jul 28 22:06
Okay, I think I finally got it fixed completely. More or less anyway. Enjoy!
Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Feb 23 19:27
This list brings back memories and is fun to read, even if I don't agree with everything on it.
Posted: 2 years, 10 months ago at Jun 8 9:11
Let's hear it for Batman: The Animated Series!! Not only a GREAT show, deserving of its high rank, but also THE BEST interpretation of the world of Gotham and it's characters, period!
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at Sep 22 16:34
Justice League should of been on that list, same goes for Avatar the Last Airbender.
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at Sep 22 18:52
This list came out before Justice League and Avatar aired, otherwise I'm sure they would be on this list.
Posted: 11 months, 1 week ago at May 15 20:57
Number 35 should be Number 1!
