Sooo, I'm sure this has been discussed before, but does anyone have any favorite western animated shows they still look back on? Things that aired on Cartoon Network (which finally seems to be returning somewhat to former show variety in the past year, thank god), Nickelodeon, Disney, or Fox years ago (or right now)?
I completely admit I'm a big animation nerd and like to search and look out for new stuff to see if its worth picking up, and not just with anime. Note that I'd count any animated series (web or tv) and animated movie (disney, dreamworks, etc.) as long as its american/latin american/european/canada based in creation. I'm not so sure if dubbed anime that was heavily edited (most of the ones aimed at kids we all know) counts, unless you think it's THAT removed from the original and is practically a new show.
A quick list of favorites that still stand out to me (won't go into descriptions because this post would put you to sleep):
Cartoon Network: Dexter's Laboratory, Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Ed, Edd n' Eddy, Codename Kids Next Door, Teen Titans, Code Lyoko (from France originally), Samurai Jack, Total Drama (newer, but its got some fun characters, even if its always really good or really bad depending on the season), Xiaolin Showdown (apparently has a sequel now, huh...) Steven Universe (just checked this one out this year, is pretty good and those backgrounds are gorgeous)
(Don't like Cow and Chicken/I Am Weasel shenanigans and I've seen some of Ren and Stimpy and Rocko but was too young when they first came out)
(NEED to watch Over the Garden Wall)
Nickelodeon: Hey Arnold, Spongebob (seasons 1-3 to movie ), Fairly Odd Parents (earlier seasons as well, haven't seen others), Avatar and Korra (DUH), Danny Phantom, As Told By Ginger, Jimmy Neutron, Invader Zim (LOL)
(I know I didn't put other originals like Doug/Rugrats/Wild Thornberry's here, they were always meh to me personally)
Disney: Recess, Kim Possible, Duck Tales, Lilo and Stitch the Series, most Disney Movies
(Gravity Falls is on the list...)
Warner Bros. (WB block): Animaniacs, Tiny Toons, Pinky and the Brain
