Top 10 Cartoons of ALL TIME [Part 1]


Yep, this isn’t clickbait. Today we’re throwing away our rose-colored
glasses because we’re gonna need nostalgia goggles for this video. A lot of my viewers are probably thinking
to themselves: Well, yes, but it’s been about a month since
I returned, so I guess this video serves as somewhat of a thank you for the kind support
you all have given me. I absolutely love reading the comments, and
I’ve found more motivation from looking at them, so thank you again and I appreciate
it a lot. I know I shouldn’t have to explain myself
for this otherwise self-explanatory video topic but I’m going to do it anyway. This is all just my opinion, and I’m not
saying that I think “X show” is objectively better than “Y show” if its higher up on the
list. I’m just letting you know what my favorite
cartoons are. With some of the cartoons in this video still
on-going, and the fact that I continually re-watch and discover other cartoons, I don’t
expect this list to be permanent, and it might be outdated within the next year or two. Also, I re-watched a few episodes from each
series just to refresh myself on how I feel about them. But with all of that said, let’s start off
the rankings by showing you my obligatory list of honorable mentions that didn’t make
the cut. Believe it or not, I wasn’t really a fan
of the movie that started it all. I mean, I don’t think it’s bad, but it
never quite latched onto to me like the TV series did. If I’m being entirely honest, I don’t
know the exact reason why I love this weird show so much, but there’s definitely a lot
to love about it. I still think Jimmy Neutron is a hilarious
show. Sheen and Carl serve as great supplements
to Jimmy’s rather focused and straightforward personality, and of course you can’t forget
about fan-favorite Bolbi Stroganovsky or my personal favorite source of humor in the show:
Jimmy’s dad. Aside from all of the times that the characters’
odd behaviors and interests were made fun of, there was also a lot of pop-culture references
(that I’m sure flew right over my head when I was younger) and the occasional risque joke
that gone thrown in. Jimmy’s Dad: I don’t mind, once when I was seven years old, I sat on a banana and, of course, that changed my life. The animation was decent, especially for being
CGI animated content on TV in the 2000s, and I think the semi-retro aethstetic made it
more visually appealing. Obviously the animation isn’t the best,
and you’ll find some instances of stiff movement or less-detailed characters and backgrounds,
but with all of the explorations the characters went on in different environments, it seems
understandable that some were more detailed than others. And I also think the animation naturally improved
as the show progressed. I would say that Jimmy Neutron is somewhat
educational, but I reconsider saying that when I remember all of the bizarre and totally
unrealistic things that happened. In itself, the concept of a virtuoso child
scientist using wacky inventions to solve his problems is a pretty cool idea, but that
mixed together with a cast of charismatic characters and creative inventions makes for
a entertaining cartoon. For those of that don’t know, there was
a spinoff of Jimmy Neutron that was released in 2010 called Planet Sheen, and I’ll be
talking about that more in an upcoming video! I’ll post it either this upcoming week or
the week after that. Let’s just say it hasn’t been fun forcing
myself to go through all 26 episodes. I discovered Rick and Morty shortly after
it premiered, in keeping up with the current landscape of cartoons as a reviewer, and I
never expected it to get as popular as it did. I just thought it was going to be a niche,
single-season Adult Swim show that would be remembered as an overlooked gem, but man,
was I wrong. And it’s understandable why it’s so popular. We got it. We got it. [Pause] We got it. It’s not the first sci-fi comedy cartoon
to do a lot of these things *cough* cough*, but it certainly has taken a unique approach
at doing so. I know a lot of people think Justin Roiland’s
brand of humor is annoying, or even lazy, and I’d agree in saying that it’s not
very sophisticated, since most of the time it’s just him drunkenly stuttering and saying
a bunch of nonsensical things in a VO booth, but I really don’t care because I find it
super funny. I think the first season, and most of the
second are absolutely amazing, but I was super disappointed by season 3. I only thoroughly enjoyed two or three episodes
from that entire season, and felt especially let down by the finale. Like, with Pickle Rick, the joke that Rick
turned himself into a pickle is kind of funny at first, but then I feel like that meshing
the action-plot mixed in with family counseling and that trying to take itself somewhat seriously;
I just think they took a simple and mundane joke too far. The toxic portion of the Rick and Morty fanbase
is a vocal minority and isn’t representative of most fans or the people who work on the
show, but it has gotten a little frustrating seeing certain Rick and Morty fans say or
do something stupid, only for others to mock and imitate that stupid behavior, sometimes
looking more stupid than the original person. In regards to my overall thoughts, and similar
to how I feel about the fanbase: I hope it gets better as time goes on and doesn’t
lose what made it special in the first place. Also, I tried the McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce
a couple months ago, it wasn’t that great. Alien: Wow! This sauce is [expletive] amazing. You said it was promoting a movie? I’m so glad that Cartoon Network started
airing reruns of this show again because it’s filling a void in this current generation
of cartoons. Based on the supergroup from DC comics, Teen
Titans was one of many action-superhero cartoons airing at the time, like Justice League, The
Batman, and Static Shock, but Teen Titans was definitely distinguishable from the rest. The action was really solid and it was balanced
well alongside plot-building and comedic interventions. The anime-inspired aesthetic works really
well, especially with the comedic outbursts that some characters would have. Speaking of which, the series was a little
more upbeat when it started, but as it continued and developed relationships, character
arcs, and deeper themes, it took on a more serious tone. Each character had their own issues and the
series took time to explore them. Starfire assimilating into society while trying
not to forget her origins, Cyborg dealing with the consequences of being both man and
machine, Raven’s psychological problems and disputes with her father, and the list
goes on. There’s a chance that a season six could
happen, but I’m curious how that would turn out with the landscape of animation at the
moment. We already have a new Young Justice season
coming out too, so I’m definitely looking forward to that as well. Beast Boy: What? That’s how it ends? Starfire: And there is no sixth season to resolve the plots hanging from the cliff? Robin: You ended that show? You monster. What more can you say about this show that
already hasn’t been said. I’m fairly certain that SpongeBob is single-handedly
the most iconic cartoon of our generation. He’s a character that’s recognizable on
an international scale and has easily been Nickelodeon’s biggest cash cow. There’s tons of clothing, accessories, food,
figurines, videogames, and even a Broadway musical. All derived from a cartoon about a fry-cook
sea sponge and his anthropomorphic sea creature friends that live in an underwater city called
Bikini Bottom. The distinct premise lent itself to a lot
of really interesting ideas, like the in episode Pressure, and though it borrowed some things
from other cartoons like Ren and Stimpy, it was fairly experimental in its first couple
seasons. It’s a hilarious cartoon, full of legendary
visual gags and and an endless amount of quotes that still get recited on regular basis. It’s no surprise that there’s been a lot
of popular memes either, and I think some young people definitely acquired their sense
of humor from what they saw on SpongeBob. The use of music is also great, and I have
the lyrics from songs like Sweet Victory, the Campfire Song Song, and Ripped Pants ingrained
into my head. Comparable to others, I’m a fan of
the first three seasons, but really wasn’t a fan of anything beyond that. There’s some things that I liked from those
following seasons, but I haven’t watched SpongeBob since season 6. As the crew underwent major changes,
I think the characters got a little dumbed-down and the show became more repetitive in the
process. Now that it’s had two theatrical movies
and 11 seasons over than span of nearly 20 years, I think it’s fair to say that SpongeBob
has run its course, but from what I’ve heard among current SpongeBob fans, the past few
seasons have been decent, so maybe they do have more interesting stories to tell. They’re releasing another SpongeBob movie
in 2020 set to be directed by Tim Hill, also known for directing such critical hits as
Hop, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and perhaps his most notable film, Garfield: A Tale of
Two Kitties. If you want further thoughts on SpongeBob,
I’m no expert on the show, but my friend PieGuyRulz is, so I’d highly suggest checking
out his SpongeBob videos and his Every Episode of SpongeBob Reviewed series. Butters’s dad: There you are mister! Just what do you think you’re doing? Butters: Hello dad. It’s me, Butters! Butters’s dad: I know that. Why do you- Butters: This for all the times I got grounded! Butters: Ha! I could almost feel his balls on my fist! For the past twenty years, South Park has
continued to offer social commentary on relevant issues and deliver such commentary over comedic
characters and situations. However, since the introduction of the season-long
serialized story-arcs in season 19, I haven’t liked it as much, not only because they’re
trying to make meaningful story-arcs with formerly expendable characters and the show
hasn’t been as funny, but the story-arcs themselves aren’t that compelling either. In reference to some of the weaker comedy
in recent seasons, there’s the member berries, which are clearly there to make fun of the
annoying yet popular aspects of the 2010s nostalgia craze, but there’s not really
anything more to them. Member Berry: ‘Member Bionic Man? Randy: Oh, I ‘member! Member Berry: I love Bionic Man! Member Berry: ‘Member Chewbacca again? Member Berry: Oh, I love to ‘member Chewbacca! Pretty much everything prior the most recent
seasons though, I love. It’s amazing when they take a topic of relative
importance and exaggerate it for the sake of comedy. Like, the episode Chinpokomon makes fun of
the Pokemon craze that happened in America during the late 90’s, but they clearly hyperbolize
it by having the producers of Chinpokomon use the merchandise as a way to make American
children become Japanese child soldiers. Not to mention, Chinpoko also translates to
a pretty inappropriate Japanese phrase. Then, there’s episodes like Trapped in the
Closet where they’re already exploring a rather extreme topic, so they just let the
subject matter speak for itself. South Park always makes me laugh, and unless
the show continues down the rabbit-hole it’s been going through recently, I see it remaining
on the air for as long as there’s societal issues to make fun of. Hey guys. I wasn’t expecting this project to be split
into two parts, but I decided to do that after realizing how long it would’ve taken to
make the entire project in the matter of week. I’ll have the second part up on Friday,
and the following week after that is my Planet Sheen review, and I have a lot of other really
videos in the works that I’m looking forward to sharing with you. Thanks for watching, give me some feedback
and maybe guess what you think the top 5 are going to be in the comments, and have a spectacular
day.
