Please recommend the best cartoons you can think of (in the vein of say, Samurai Jack or Flapjack) for my cartoon-lovin' 8 year old and myself. We're obsessed and need new material!
went up this morning about a new cartoon from the dude that did Flapjack and as my kid and I are utterly obsessed with cartoons -- our DVD library is huge as we watch nothing on the tele other than PBS -- I'd like some more toon suggestions.
Things we have loved and watch on the regular:
Flapjack, of course.
Samurai Jack. Kid wants to BE Samurai.
Scooby Doo, old and new.
Pee Wee's Playhouse. I had forgotten how creatively awesome this show was.
And then I'll admit that yes, I do let him watch other various Adult Swim shows. He has a couple Aqua Teen seasons and all the seasons of Frisky Dingo. Please don't lecture me about this, either. He's 8 but he gets that there are certain things he shan't repeat, the inappropriate jokes he doesn't understand, and the joy of being able to run around and quote that show when no one knows what we're talking about has increased my happiness in life ten-fold. YOU'RE A LOOSE CANNON, CODY!
So, what are we missing. I'll of course check out Gravity Falls (though I'm not sure I can get it on DVD yet) but I'd like to beef up his Christmas DVD wishlist with some great shows we could be missing.
