No Pink Panther?

Since no Pink Panther, I'm probably voting for "Underdog"

Pokemon is the song of it's time for sure.

Right now I am Chanting:

Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can.

Popeye was the song of it's time too.

These songs had lyrics. That gave them staying power.

How many schoolyard chants did my generation make up rewriting the lyrics to Batman?

The Caber-Agreed! From my childhood Rocky & Bullwinkle had to be the top.

No Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour? (we know every part by heart)

No Flintstones? (courtesy of Fred's two feet)

Rocky and Bullwinkle? (with Dudley Do-Right and Fractured Fairy Tales)

And I agree that you can't leave out the Pink Panther.

Not my absolute favorite, but Space Ghost should be on the list too.

But I'd probably have to vote for the Underdog.

Interesting note about Pink Panther. The cartoon was created as a lead-in for the first Pink Panther movie with Peter Sellars. Only after the movie was a success did it become a cartoon series. Theme was written by Henry Mancini.

I think a lot of shows on the list are great but on there for the merit of their theme songs. It did not even list Super Chicken.

Ok, on a second look at this thread, I've noticed some glaring omissions! Where is George Of The Jungle!?!

Fat Albert? (Heh! Bill Cosby looks so young!)

Underdog still wins though, in my book.

Hi everyone,

How could they not include Schoolhouse Rock? Admittedly, it's not a traditional cartoon series per say but who could ever forget classics like Conjunction Junction and I'm Just a Bill? Each cartoon had the theme song which was pretty cool and then an awesome song of its own.

For MY generation: Underdog, Bullwinkle, and of COURSE Super Chicken smiling smiley

But my kids (now 20-ish) vote for Pokemon and .. DIGIMON!

I'd totally forgotten the sounds-just-like-Bowie line in the middle:

To... save the digital [robotvoice] WORLD [/rv]
