"THE 100 GREATEST CARTOONS"

Tonight (Sunday 27th) from 8pm onwards - Channel 4.

"From Mickey Mouse to Marge Simpson, Top Cat to Toy Story and Bugs Bunny to Belleville Rendez-Vous this programme charts the 100 Greatest Cartoons of all time, as voted for by you!

Whether you grew up on a diet of Tom & Jerry and Porky Pig or modern classics like South Park, The Simpsons and King of the Hill (pictured), everyone has their favourite cartoon and characters. We'll cover everything from Popeye to cult Japanese Anime in what will be a comprehensive history of over a century of animation, as well as a poll to find out the nation's favourite cartoon of all time.

Funny, nostalgic, heart-warming and occasionally down right rude, the 100 Greatest Cartoons is the ultimate tribute to the 'thwock' sound effect, to running in the air but not going anywhere, to being a mild mannered janitor by day but kung fu super hero at night, and of course to saying 'D'oh' every time you mess up."

Hmmm....I have a funny feeling the Simpsons might be number 1.

I'm still gonna watch it though, a 4 hour trip down memory lane :thumbsup:

Sadly, I'll be watching 'The Life Aquatic'... (any good?)... though I'm sure they'll have the rundown posted on the C4 servers shortly after the show airs. :thumbsup:

I'm curious to see where, if anywhere, 'Futurama' ends up.

26 - Futurama.

Not bad. Not bad at all. It wasn't going to beat The Simpsons, though I still believe it's much better. Kudos to the voters.

*Peers at TV*

Dangermouse!!! :applause:

'Crumbs!'

Haha... :D

I've never been a fan of Futurama. Feels too much like the Simpsons. But POPEYE!!! Jesus, it's been years since I seen that! :scream:

Oh how we all knew what number one would be!

Bentagon
02-27-2005, 10:56 PM
I can't believe things like Beavis and Buthead, Pokemon and Inspector Gadget do better than Jungle Book and Snow White...

And it seems you guys missed Monsters inc at 22 when you thought there were only 2 Pixar films when Nemo got on the list...

**argh animated-news.com has only listed to number 7 atm!

Simpsons no1. Great but they should explicitly only include seasons 3-11 as everything they did after that is utter crap. I cant sit through a whole episode of the newer one's. It's lost its charm in my opinion.

stewartjones
02-27-2005, 10:57 PM
I think there was a total of 4 Pixar movies?

Monsters Inc
Incredibles
Toy Story
Nemo


Any others I missed?

stewartjones
02-27-2005, 10:59 PM
double bill of south park on chaps! :)

alexyork
02-27-2005, 11:00 PM
seems as tho animated feature films didn't get much of a look-in. mainly series. all the same not a bad list. could have been a lot worse that's for sure!

vfx
02-27-2005, 11:01 PM
Yup none missed there! 4 pixars...

Did anyone count how many 3d films were in the top 10?...interesting.

Was fun.

NickBFTD
02-27-2005, 11:03 PM
a bugs life was in there too

mushroomgod
02-27-2005, 11:07 PM
bugs life was around 80ish,


"watership down was below woodie the woodpecker.."

yep.........oh well

That was an odd mix for sure. Some of Disney's classic films were extremely high up and many poorer 'toons were in the Top30. Nice to see a glimpse of ThunderCats again though (why oh why not DVD Boxset).

I disagreed with allot of it but you can't really argue against The Simpsons (in its glory days anyway, last few years have made it into a joke). Still, it had to be #1 really didn't it.... Ch4 have paid 700,000 per episode. :D

Bentagon
02-27-2005, 11:27 PM
Except for the Shrek films, and some I didn't see, I thought the top 30 was a pretty good list. I had put some Disney Classics in there though, like Bambi, and I'd also put Beauty and the Beast a bit higher than Aladdin. Ah well, it was still nice to see this list...

Woodpacker deserved around 40 or lower, how can you hate that, it was my favourite anyway was Ice Age in there, think I missed that

Cameo

A nice, if somewhat predictable, walk down memory lane.

That said these top 100, greatest ever programmes are getting really tiresome. Does Jimmy Carr not do any other sort of work? Are there any more z-list nobodies that [i]havent appeared on these sorts of programmes?

Bentagon

Woodpacker deserved around 40 or lower, how can you hate that, it was my favourite anyway was Ice Age in there, think I missed thatNope, no Ice Age. Something else I was wondering about: why isn't the Muppet Show included as an animated show? If it were, it would definitly have been in there...

Ah it was good to see TOm and jerry so high in the charts. whatwhatwhat No Antz didn't chart? Woof Thudercats is coming to DVD finially. I seem to remember Panthro had nunkucs in the series, did I dream that?

DVDToons is reporting that one of the trailers in the upcoming Batman: The Animated Series Volume 3 boxset is for ThunderCats: Season One

Was quite sad to see some of the best animated features ever made like Fantasia, Jungle Book and Pinoccio down the list... then see some very poor examples of cartoons on top of list.

It must be said that recent movies did very good (as usual), and that's not
really the proper strenght compared to classics.
It's good to see many good movies there too, even the order is not quite right.
Also sad thing is that some of the classics like Tom & Jerry have their newer editions
which are usually rather poor.
Main question is what can be seen today on the TV is really not so great,
and many of the classics are hard to find. How about Jetsons?
Could they be a huge hit today?
(futurama vs simpsons, jetsons vs flintstones)

Dissapointed they didn't had The Smurfs or The prince of Egypt.

What?! No Mysterious Cities Of Gold?! Thats a disgrace! :shrug:

I agree, no cities of gold, that's out of order, i say out of order...... foghorn leghorn .. did u get that... nevermind...

what happend to....

MASK
Jayce and the wheeled wariors
Visionaries
The Centurions
Count Duckula
Defenders of the Earth and so on........

Anyway, how come they had feature films? Should have just been 100% T.V cartoons. IMO
