Ren and Stimpy
Rocko's Modern Life
Powerpuff Girls
Dexter's Lab
Johnny Bravo
Invader Zim
Cow and Chicken
The Wild Thornberrys
As Told By Ginger
Rocket Power
Ah! Real Monsters
Hey Arnold
Angry Beavers

I mean seriously, where did they all go?
I know they are out there somewhere.
It's ashame that socitey can't put the old
with the new. We can compromise here.
I miss the classics. They are the best.
Nobody cares about some Fanboy and Chum.
Or Total Drama Island. Blah!
The classic stuff is the best. No doubt.
I just wish they would air them again.
Even if it was just one week out of the year
that they showed all the Classic Cartoons,
I would be happy. I'm tired of trying to look
them up on the internet. That's too much searching.
You know you miss them too.
Which one is your favorite classic cartoon?

I dislike the fact that we can't put the old with the new.

I agree with you. What happened to Dragon Tales, Clifford, Sarifia the Simise cat, and all the rest? What about the educational shows like Zamboomafo? What's little charmers?

I loved Ren and Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, Dexter's Lab, Rugrats, Invader Zim (I'm a die-hard fan x3), Ah! Real Monsters, Hey Arnold, and Angry Beavers. I'm so sad that these shows are all gone, especially since Invader Zim is only out on a DVD set that they stopped producing years ago. Even worse, when the public got furious with Zim's cancelation, Nickolodeon allowed the show to start again before promptly cancelling it once more. I can't find these episodes at all!

Dexter's Lab used to be one of the only TV shows I watched! Invader ZIM is one of the best shows ever aired. PLAY 'EM ALL AGAIN!!!!!

Rugrats! My favorite cartoon ever followed by Doug and Hey Arnold. As Told by Ginger was awesome as well. I love all the cartoons you mentioned. I wanna go back to those days haha! Cartoons now suck. There are a few good ones though like Penguins of Madagascar and El Tigre. Those are hilarious
