Favorite Nicktoon?

This thread might be a spectacular failure, but I figured I'd at least give it a whirl. Feel free to discuss all things Nicktoon below, and if I missed yours or your kid's favorite show let me know.

As much as I like Fairly Oddparents and Jimmy Neutron, Spongebob Squarepants is so where it's at. That show rocks my pants.

The old school stuff -- Doug, Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy -- were all pretty good. Doug wasn't very good when it came back on ABC, and Rugrats was especially lousy when they started producing new episodes in 1997. That was a bummer for me, because it was my favorite Nicktoon, I think.

I never saw this thread first time round - but another vote for Spongebob Squarepants from me!
I watched it with my Godson a few times, he loves it and there's definitely enough to keep the adults amused.

My neigbour's kid calls him "Funbob" - a habit I've picked up. It's actually been several months since I last called him Spongebob...

my top three favs are Spongebob, Jimmy Neutron, and Fairly Odd Parents. i voted for Jimmy Neutron, but really it is a toss up between Jimmy and Spongebob. both have funnier, more witty writing than most, prime time sit-coms. we should have a "favorite cartoon episode" thread. :D "ruby madness! ruby madness!"

It's my favorite hands down. Yeah, Invader Zim was brilliant and all, but I honestly think it had no place on Nickelodeon. I'm going to try and get FOP on DVD to watch with my class, the show is just so crazy and fun while still being kid oriented at the same time.

I remember Salute Your Shorts. I feel bad for Donkeylips, because that motherfucker could cure cancer and the headline would read Donkeylips Cures Cancer.

Also, the Angry Beavers is one of the greatest cartoons ever, if you get that Nicktoon channel, check it out sometime. One of the beavers is voiced by the guy who went on to do Zim's voice. Wonderful show..

As for "Angry Beavers," I could never stand that show. Maybe I should try to re-watch it now and see if I feel any differently about it, but whenever the two beavers would do those weird shouty voices, it was like fingernails on a chalkboard for me.

They were all pretty good in their own way- or, at least better than most of The Disney Channels offerings- and I'm finding it hard to pick a favourite. For me NOW it'd be Invader Zim, but the one I watched the most must have been Doug. Doug and Skeeter's garage band kicked ass and took names. "Banging on a trashcan, drumming on a streetlight".

It's a shame about that vociferously lame Doug Movie.


One thing I can't stand on retrospect, though, are some of Nick's terrible live-action programs like Sister, Sister, Drake and Josh and a couple of others. They had quite a few gems like Clarissa Explains it All and Pete&Pete tucked in between the turds though.

"Invader ZIM"...hilarious.

Also, "Angry Beavers" is classic, both of these in part to Richard Horowitz.

But I miss the live-action stuff...the good stuff like "Pete and Pete". Though I do admit I find the bizarre Canadian puppet show "Mr. Meaty" to be funny.

Now poo comes out of your mouth? What?

Listen, Nicktoons is the reason Ren & Stimpy lost its teeth, due in no short part to MTV (another Viacom property) firing John K. from his own goddamnn show.

Of course, the man was nefarious already at that time for the 'Might Mouse snorting coke' fiasco, and for keeping company with the rat-bastard of all animation, Bakshi.

But still, Viacom fires the man from his creation, because they can't find a way to edit his stuff down enough for kids TV - so for the sake of John K., don't thank Ren & Stimpy for anything to do with Nicktoons

You raise a the good points, paisan, but a perhaps a the Dino, he should have a gone onna further... The Nickelodeon, they rape a the Ren anna Stimpy of alla things good anna clever, anna dance onna the corpse of a the John K. alla the while trying to bring a the "Ren anna Stimpy" feeling to alla their other animated properties, no?

It's a sort of a like when a the Beatles, they kick outta the Clarence Walker from a the band anna iffa you play back a the "Love a Me Do" back-a-wards you can a hear a the John Lennon say "Hey, Paul! Let's alla get rid of a the Clarence anna steal alla his good ideas, eh?"
