* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' just ended its second season and nobody mentioned it yet? For shame! It may have had some EarlyInstallmentWeirdness upon starting, but starting [[Recap/StarVsTheForcesOfEvilS1E11Mewberty with]] [[Recap/StarVsTheForcesOfEvilS1E15BloodMoonBall episodes]] [Recap/StarVsTheForcesOfEvilS1E19StOlgasReformSchoolForWaywardPrincess like]] [[Recap/StarVsTheForcesOfEvilS1E20MewnipendenceDay these]] have me convinced it may be my favorite show on Creator/DisneyXD. Star is essentially [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Mabel Pines]] taken UpToEleven, except she's a MagicalGirl who can Narwhal Blast your face in if you hurt her or those closest to her. There's also Marco, probably one of my favorite male leads in recent memory in that [[BadassNormal he actually fights the monsters after Star's wand]], and that's not counting the worlds the two go to and the characters encountered; there are so many awesome characters that I'd be taking up way more of your time than I need to. And season 2 manages to be even better, with more focus on character interactions and development, several major plot points being reintroduced, and the escalation of the overall plot with the status quo pretty much being shaken by this point. Oh, and it also has some SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' is ''nothing'' like ''[[ObviousBeta Rise of Lyric]]''. The main team of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and Sticks, while sometimes easily definable, actually provide a lot of laughs, and Dr. Eggman's IneffectualSympatheticVillain persona in this is nothing short of golden. The plots are entertaining, the jokes usually hit, and unlike something like WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo, its self-awareness comes off as more natural rather than flat-out insulting (it helps that Sonic media has broken the fourth wall before).


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'' doesn't get a lot of love, and I can see why. But ignoring all the [[OffModel problems with]] [[ContinuityReboot the show]], this is actually fun to watch. Characters that I expected to utterly despise (Sonia and Manic especially) end up turning into actual heroes throughout the series' run, getting some great focus episodes and development on their part. And as for the songs that happen OnceAnEpisode? I admit they're hit-or-miss, but I love it [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic when they hit]]. And then there's the Knuckles arc, which has plenty of nods to the comics (Athair is in it, Angel Island is referred to as the Floating Island and is powered by a sole Chaos Emerald, etc.) and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin gives everyone's favorite red echidna plenty of focus]]. I understand why the show isn't fondly remembered, but I gave it a chance and it didn't disappoint.

** ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''...just ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''. It may seem like a generic show about a bunch of fourth-graders at school getting in trouble, but there's more. It seems to have been created in a way that not only the kids can enjoy, but their parents as well (such as the movie, which is one big ShoutOut to TheSixties). It shows that the kid characters don't need [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents fairies]], [[{{Pokemon}} small superpowered creatures]], or superpowers to have an enjoyable show. What we have here are a group of kids that ''act'' like real kids. The humor is very witty and there are plenty of heartwarming moments (such as T.J.'s "best friend" essay in "The Break-Up"). Oh, and the main six are pretty BadassAdorable.

* A more classic example would be ''RockyAndBullwinkle''. Very possibly the wittiest animated cartoon ever produced.

* RubyGloom The show is hilarious and uses typically scary and villainous characters in a cute and funny way. And you know you enjoyed those before and after episode skits. What other children's show stars a re-animated doll, a skeleton, a cyclops, a banshee, a ghost, a bat, three ravens named Edgar, Allan, and Poe, a two-headed monster and a black cat?

* ''TheRoadToElDorado''. Sure, it was animated. Yes, there was Narm. But it was a cartoon movie with character development, snappy dialogue that wasn't forced, and slapstick that managed not to spoil the undercurrent of seriousness.

* The classic epiodes of ''ThomasTheTankEngine And Friends''. Drawing on some of [[TheRailwaySeries the finest source material]], and adding great voice talent, [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome amazing model work]], and [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic one of the best scores ever]] (done on a synthesizer, too).

* I'm just going to say it: ''WesterAnimation/ReadyJetGo''. This show is criminally underrated and is one of the greatest preschool cartoons of all time. I wouldn't say it was better than other PBS Kids shows such as Arthur and Wild Kratts, but Ready Jet Go is still extremely amazing. First off, the animation. The animation is very creative and crisp. It used to suck in the earlier episodes, but it has gotten much better as of recent times, and by God, is the animation real and perfect. Mindy's bear hat looks like an actual crocheted hat if you look closely enough. The scenes when they're in space, are the best parts. Next off, the characters. The characters are very likable, adorable, and very relatable. The main character happens to be an alien from Bortron 7 named [[AwesomeMcCoolName Jet Propulsion]]. Jet is everything you need to make a great cartoon character. A deep and well-thought out backstory, a unique design, amazing voice acting, relatable flaws, and very funny jokes. Plus, Jet is the greatest cartoon singer and songwriter ever. Sydney can appeal to Trekkies, because Sydney is a die-hard science fiction fan and a huge fan of Commander Cressida, and she owns all the comics and has seen every episode. She is also POC. Mindy Melendez is an adorable little Latina girl who can be snarky, but is a good character deep down and her wisecracks are some of the best wisecracks I've heard. Mitchell is a detective who wants to expose Jet's alien identity to the public, but in recent episodes, he is very likable, relatable, and hilarious. The parents aren't just bumbling morons, they have backstories and are very smart and competent. Face 9000 is charming and also delivers clever wisecracks. Sunspot is a great character for comedy and is cute. The best character: SEAN! Sean is not only very cute, he's also very smart and relatable. He is a deep complex character who wants to go into space and be the first person to land on Mars, but he's afraid of heights and gets space-sick easily. He's also a perfectionist who is obsessed with the scientific method. The plots are simple, but they tend to be relatable, charming, and educational. There are simple slice of life plots with a sci-fi twist and an educational concept per episode (Example: Gravity), but several episodes can seriously touch your heart and make you cry with their depressing moments and deep scenes. This show has an elite team of astronomers who work at NASA and producers of succesful properties such as What Women Want and Home Improvement. They work extra hard to make sure there is a lot to teach kids per episode. They teach space, science, and technology to children in a very fun and entertaining way, using humor, songs, and interstitials with Astronomer Amy Mainzer. They might even teach you things that you never knew about space. Last off, the soundtrack. The soundtrack is composed by Jim Lang and is just perfect. The musical feel of the series evokes the early rockíníroll ďJet PropulsionĒ song that the Propulsion family hear when they first follow a radio signal to Earth. Like the 50ís, itís upbeat and positive. The musical style can range from rockíníroll to Broadway. This rocking, retro vibe works with the shows mid-century design and setting. Not to mention, the show has a growing fanbase on Tumblr, Google+, and other social media sites, the main character is voiced by the legendary Rainbow Dash, and the show is created by Craig Bartlett. Yes, that Craig Bartlett.

** I feel blessed to have ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' be the first film I ever watched at age 2, one of my first memories in fact. I can never choose a favourite segment, because the music fits so beautifully with the animation, it's absolutely perfect. It was around age 20 that I started thinking seriously about why I love animation and it harkens back to Fantasia every time; it introduced animation to me, not as [[AnimationAgeGhetto something meant only for kids]], but as an artform, even if I didn't understand that at the time. Although I love ''Disney/TheLionKing'', ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' and every {{Pixar}} movie to date, I still think to this day that if I'd been introduced to animation through any other film I probably wouldn't appreciate it the way I do now.
