    Who remembers this show? I remembering it being my favorite show on Cartoon Network. It started a lot of great shows, Dexter, Cow & Chicken, Courage The Cowardly Dog, Johnny Bravo.
    I use to love hearing WHAT! A! CARTOOOOOOON OON OON!



    So what was everyone's favorite short?

    Mine was Gramps or Mina And The Count

    My favorite shorts are:

    Larry & Steve by Seth McFarlane (Ironically this was one I liked the most as a kid, but I never really liked Seth's actual show Family Guy)

    Gramps, Hillbilly Blue, and Pfish & Chip by Butch Hartman (the same guy that made Fairly Oddparents on Nick)

    Mina and the Count

    Pizza Boy

    Godfrey and Zeek

    Rat in a Hot Tin Can

    Help?

    Shake and Flick: "Raw Deal in Rome"

    A couple shorts of Dino from The Flintstones made by Joseph Barbera

    And of course all of the pilots for Dexter's Lab, Johnny Bravo, Cow & Chicken, Powerpuff Girls, and Courage the Cowardly Dog.

    The thing that made it obvious for me was the voices. Steve the dog had a very distinctive voice in that cartoon, so years later when I was taking a quick peek at Family Guy I saw Brian with the same voice and could have sworn that I heard it somewhere before. And as it turns out, they were the early versions of Peter and Brian (different characters but same voices).

    Where was Quagmire? At the department store they went to? Considering Larry is an old man, its kinda wierd picturing him with Peter's voice.

    The first time I ever saw this show was at 7:00am when they were airing one of the Powerpuff Girls pilots. I didn't relise I was watching the pilot episode of PPG, despite the animation style being different.

    You have to give Butch Hartman some credit: if he could make a short like that then he must have been a good cartoonist, despite the kind of animation he has to work with now. I'll admit, Fairly Oddparents looks kind of bland with characters having the same heads and stuff, but it's still kind of a funny show to watch and Gramps was great!
