A 85% complete listing of all the cartoons i've ever seen...

A while back during my last obsession resurrection phase about 2 months ago, (which is an event that happens when every once and a while during my life, an old obsession of mine comes back), and the last phase rekindled my love for animation from outside Japan. During that time, I sat down and made a complete listing of every single cartoon and animated film I viewed throughout my entire life (check out my anime list if you want a complete listing of anime i’ve seen). Why did I do this? I was curious mostly, after having a list on for anime, I put together my own personal list just for cartoons (which I'm now reposting here just to help get this blog rollin). I knew I had seen alot of cartoons during my childhood years, I had a very dull childhood afteral. Being an only child, growing up in the middle of nowhere, having very few friends, and with my mom working during the day and my dad worked at night. He was usually asleep in his chair or watching his football or NASCAR. So basically all there was for me to do was either play by myself, play on the computer or watch TV all day. Sure it was lonely sometimes, but I enjoyed being in my own little world much of the time. So I watched every single cartoon that aired on TV back in the early 90’s from (mostly around 1993-1997-ish), didn’t matter watch station it came on, or if I loved it or hated it, I watched it anyways. So whatever show you can name that aired then, old or new, there's a 90% chance I've seen it. Like the old Hanna Barbara cartoons from the 60s-70s that aired on Cartoon Network back then, the classic Nicktoons, the old Disney Afternoon cartoons, even the shows that aired on saturday morning on CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX and WB. Oddly enough, even I still remember most of them (I seem to have such a keen memory for this sort of thing apparently). So I have always loved animation, its just that in recent years my interests have moved away from cartoons and onto anime. Now let the list began, I have the series categorized by how frequently I watched them back then....
