    TMNT I think. But I haven't seen the new thundercats, I heard it was amazing. MLP is only for little girls so I wouldn't know.

    All of the above excluding He-Man.

    Thundercats was pretty good. Though I am very impressed with how they gave MLP new life.

    If I had to pick out of that list, I'd say Thundercats. That was surprisingly okay for a remake/revival show.


    actually, it goes right where the original series left off. i've been pretty interested in it too

    No, it doesn't pick up where the old one left off. It's a reimagining/alternate universe version.

    I'm did watched MLP Friendship is Magic after hearing great things about it and how straight guys enjoyed the show, i watched it last year and now i'm a brony. Such a hilarious and unique animated show in the style of Ren and Stimpy, Animaniacs and Tiny Toons with that special kind of humor you don't expect considering the original toon was extremely girly while this one appeals to both genders and all sexual orientations.

    A pretty damn good one too, although a bit drawn out at times. These Thundercats don't even have a headquarters yet. : P


    I wish the show wouldn't disappear for months on end without new episodes, however.

    The animation in the new thundercats is great, and the level of storytelling is generally high. The one thing I don't like about it though is that so many of the episodes play out like afternoon specials, just very drawn out morality lessons. The one with the sword collector & the willow guy is a prime example. Right from the get-go you knew it was going to be "being hotheaded is bad, mmkay", which they proceeded to drag out & beat you over the head with for the entire episode, not even advancing the plot in the process. It's like they can't decide if their target audience is teens+ (as indicated by the level of the art/animation & story telling) or preschool (as indicated by the endless morality lesson head beatings).

    You forgot Gadget and the Gadgetinis, which I'd prefer over My Little Pony any day


    I was going to mention this myself. I've seen the new MLP, and while I do like it a bit, I'd much prefer the bionic detective anyday.

    My Little Pony Friendship is Magic was a surprisingly good show, though I still don't know why people obsess over it.

    I've caught Thundercats since the premiere and it already declined a bit IMO. I'd love to get my hands on a season 1 blu ray, but Cartoon Network from what I've seen, would rather put out "volumes" instead. Either way, a marathon viewing is the way to go.

    The He-Man 200x series is one I recently exposed myself to (giggity?) via the 10 episode best of dvd, but I want the whole series now. It's just a fun adventure series with unique characters.

    The 2k heman series was good overall, but the poerpetually yellow sky & the way every male character was drawn like a hunchbacked troll really bugged me. At least the female characters were drawn attractively, but that just made the whole thing look like some kind of crossover between amazons & ogres.

    Uh.. I mentioned them both, way back on page 1. :p
    TF prime is good, but I don't like renegades at all.
