Samurai Jack.

Some Insights into the character: It was inspired from the character of "Professor Utonium" from the powerpuff girls.
Good stories and setup makes it one of my favourites

Default Lighter Side of Life : The Official Cartoons Thread

Cartoons. A beautiful way to look at life, at ourselves. A sure way to start your day with a smile.

Everyone - well, almost - has his favorites. I find these funnier than some of the most popular (by public response) comedy flicks. I love & admire the way the authors bring out this quirky side of humans. In a way that we can actually laugh at ourselves.

Like all, my affair with cartoons started from comic strips, and today I love Calvin & Hobbes, Snoopy, Tintin, Tom & Jerry, Dennis the Menace, and many others. Here's a life sized cheers: to the creators of these loveable characters.


One that I feel, captures the essence of a lot of things in life (Sorry, Bill - have edited the last part of this beautiful piece) :

If we are talking animated series, nothing can beat The Simpsons. Maybe some would say South Park. But for me, its The Simpsons all the way.

Tom & Jerry is a classic. Unbeatable in its arena. Another favorite is Pink Panther.

However I think we're a bit OT and the gentleman that started the thread is concerned with comic books/ strips. Amongst those, Asterix is my favorite. Closely followed by MAD. Used to read a lot of a comic book called 'Beano' when I was younger. Just cant trace it anymore.

Great thread! I'm a big cartoon fan too. All the ones you've mentioned, and then Beetle Bailey, Hubert, Blondie (and Dagwood), Bringing up Father etc etc. (Mostly oldies).

My Dad used to cut out the cartoons page of sunday newspapers for me, and kept doing that for over 8 years while I was a kid (from the time I was 2, I think). He made huge scrapbooks of cartoons that way. I enjoyed the collection he madetill I was in the 10th std or so, and gave away the bunch to a cousin (BIG Mistake -- it has disappeared now).

I have the entire collection of Calvin & Hobbes with me on my phone for regular doses of laughter all through the day.

Post away!
