Subject: 90s V.S. 00s cartoons

Written By: GameDude2008 on 04/01/07 at 1:05 pm

Which do you feel were "the days" for animation, the 90s or the 00s, and why do you feel so. I personally love the 90s cartoons, partly because it was the time of my childhood and mainly because cartoons then were well thought out, and creative. Too many cartoons today feel as if they were put together overnight and rushed to be brodcasted--this is just my oppinion; what is yours?
Note: I also liked the early 00s cartoon, because they were all new seasons of shows from the 90s, but it seems that after 9/11 everything began to change.

I've always preferred '90s cartoons. There are very few of todays that i actually like. Of course I grew up in the '90s so I'm sort of biased.

Traditional animation got completed replaced with CGI. At first it looked cool but now it's overused and annoying (I want to rip out my hair everytime another Disney movie comes out). 90's cartoons are way better than it is now. We had the Nicktoons from the early-mid 90's (Doug, Ren & Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, etc.), the "Golden Age" of Disney (Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Lion King etc.), some of Cartoon Network (Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Powerpuff Girls).

What does the 00's have? Spongebob?

The 1990's was a great era for animation and the fact it became appealing to a wide range of audience again rather than  being "kids stuff"

Though the best era of animation, IMHO, is the 1940's  8)

1989-mid 1998 - basically from the premiere of The Simpsons through the time it started going downhill and losing its innovation. I consider Beavis and Butthead to be a milestone of animated '90s shows too. Although inherintly juvenile and stupid on the surface, it actually did have somewhat of a message in a weird way, and was more intelligent than you'd think (well, in order to accurately portray them as dumb, it would have to be, lol).

Also, I think South Park (while inspired by B&B-esque shows somewhat) sorta killed the old-school animation era. That, and Spongebob for the more kid-oriented shows. I liked alot of the early-mid '90s kids' animated movies/shows, even if I felt too old to admit it at the time.

Because it's extremely simple and I'm too tired to make a long description, '90s cartoons were definately better!

I'm probably only saying this because I grew up watching the 90's cartoons, but the current stuff just doesn't stack up.

You're not the only one, dude. I'm sure most people on here would preferentialize the '90s over the '00s (although every decade has its good points too).

I think the 90's cartoons were way better than they are now.  I don't think they are very educational now days and they are very stupid.  when we woke up on saturday morning we could sit and watch cartoons all day till noon.  now the kids have nothing to look forward to on saturday mornings.  All they can do is get up and play a game or get on computer.  how fun is that.  if they had cartoons to watch I think they would sit and watch them.

I don't you can compare the two decades because of the two demographics.  A year ago, my roomates cousin, born in 1997, didn't like any 90's cartoons that were on the computer except the Simpsons.  She watches a lot of Adult Swim episodes and such.  It's like comparing the 90's cartoons vs 80's cartoons, can't be compared imo.

Yeah, it seemed after 2001...everything changed when it came to the media. Mostly sell-outs!

But I wish that there would be another cartoon station for Nickelodeon like "Nick Rewind", Cartoon Network for "Cartoon Cartoons Channel", and Disney with a "Vault Disney Channel".

90s cartoons, definitely. The animation creativity during that decade will probably never be matched again. You can tell that time and effort were put into them. 00s ones are thrown-together, cheap CGI sheesh.

If you saw my post on CGI, you'll know what my opinion is. I like certain well-done CGI movies, but its starting to get WAY overdone. Call me old fashioned but hand-drawn animation just has a distinct beauty that CG lacks. I really miss it.

Look, Punk...

Yes, we DID grow-up during the 90's and most cartoons were hand-drawn. Yes, there ARE good cartoons for the 00's, but it's for people who watched Cartoons during the 90's. I'll watch a few 00's cartoons such as Robot Chicken, The Cleveland Show, and American Dad! But with cartoons in the 00's rather than in the 90's, kids won't get the 90's cartoons like "Animaniacs" because they have a lot of aim toward people who grew-up in the 90's because of the pop culture of the time. And the older people got some of the jokes on "Animaniacs" because The Warners had similarities to The Marx Brothers, Pinky and the Brain had a lot of similarities to Orson Welles, The Goodfeathers had a lot of similarities to the movie The Goodfellas and The Godfather, and Rita and Runt was a cartoon version of Rain Man!

But also in the 90's you did have sheesh (Capitol Critters, Family Dog, Fish Police) and cartoons of the 00's don't have that pop culture prior to 2000, unless you watch an adult cartoon! Because no one would get the joke...NO ONE! There's just a gap now for the middle, and look at the cartoons of the 50's and 60's...sure they're sheesh, but grown-ups actually watched the simple Hanna-Barbera cartoons (One guy who pwned a bar even said he shouldn't be disturbed when Huckleberry Hound was on) and Looney Tunes WEREN'T aimed toward children.

So fudge you...get your facts straight before getting defensive!

Most 00s cartoons are crap, garbage, not worthy of anyone's eyes staring at them because it's a good way to go blind.

The late '30s-early '60s however were the real "golden age" of cartoons. Many of these are still on certain classic TV stations, in certain DVD sets, and are the real "gold standard". The late '80s and '90s are more the "silver age". Unfortunately with the overdependance of CGI, that means a lack of new animators known to hand-draw stuff; without new talent to replace them, hand-drawn cartoons are well on their way to becoming a lost art.

I wanted to become a hand-draw animator  :) I didn't persue a career in it though for obvious reasons

And I disagree. There will always be animators capable of hand-drawn animation. The majority of CGI animators also have knowledge in hand-drawn animation...Iin fact many of them are ex-hand draw animators who switched to keep their jobs.

I'd say the transitional period between the 90s and 00s(1996-2003) had the best cartoons. Sponge Bob, Dexter's Lab, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Johnny Bravo, Catdog, Rocko's Modern Life, Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Powerpuff Girls, Ed Edd and Eddy, and whole lot of them I am forgetting.

In my opinion, 90's Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Disney Channel > 00's Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Disney Channel. I mean, Jesus Christ, Cartoon Network shows live action/reality TV shows now! 8-P However, I will admit I liked some of the new cartoons that did come out in the early/mid 00's (2000-2003), but they still kinda had that 90's influence to them.
