Cartoons that don't show anymore.

Movies, TV and Entertainment
What are some cartoons you used to watch when you were a kid that don't show anymore and that you miss? For me:

1. Tiny Toons
2. Dexter's Lab
3. Rocko's Modern Life
4. Invader Zim- I was a teen when this aired but I liked it at the time.

How about you all?

Idk if this is still on or not but ruggrats? I loved that show when I was really young. There were many cartoons that I watched as a kid that are no longer on but I forgot them all.
2 Stupid Dogs lol
Dave the Barbarian was always one of my favorites.

Johnny Bravo, too. It's still on Boomerang and Cartoon Network, I believe.
This will show my age, but I like Bugs, Foghorn, Roadrunner, Daffy, and all of the old Warner Bros cartoons which used to be shown on Saturday mornings. Scooby Doo was another favorite. I also loved Ultraman, which was a live-action Japanese show featuring a superhero who could transform into a giant human to fight Godzilla-type monsters. Anyone remember that? This was l-o-n-g before Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network.
Captain Caveman.
Laff-A-Lympics.
The Shmoo.
Kid's Superpower Hour.
Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends.
Kimba the White Lion
Battle of the Planets (circa 1972)
Thundarr the Barbarian

Ariel! Ookla! We ride!

Ultraman and Johnny Sokko and His flying Robot..... Battle of the Planets was another of my favorites....G-FORCE!!!!
Robotech was like my crack as a child. I remember it came on at the crack of dawn on some local station back then, and I would always get up early just to watch it before school. I was a sad little kid when the stopped showing it. I've thought about buying the box sets, but I honestly don't know how well it would hold up.
COURAGE THE COWARDLY DOG!!!!!! :D (i still watch it on youtube)
David the Gnome! It's probably responsible for my lifelong love of gnomes 8)

Maya the Bee was another good one.

darkwing duck

gummy bears
chip and dales rescue rangers
johnny quest
denver the last dinosaur
MASK
mighty max

that's about all i can think of right now off the top of my head. ai'm sure i could name a lot more, but i'm a little sleep deprived atm, so not thinking too clearly ><
Grim Adventures of B&M, best show ever.

"DESTROY US ALL, DESTROY US ALL, i'll have the chicken, DESTROY US ALL."
The cartoon series for Mario World (Mama Luigi!), Sonic, and Megaman.

My favorite Megaman episode was when he meets up with X and they kick butt together, with X being a million times cooler and stronger, of course.

Oh, I forgot about Ninja Turtles, with my favorite episodes being about the Alienesque pizza monsters and another about the mousers.

Here's another vote for Robotech. I first caught it late on a Saturday in 1985 before it was moved to weekday afternoons, and was enthralled — especially by the "first" of Harmony Gold's three adapted series, the Macross saga. The maturity of the show's content left me spoiled; I found most cartoons ho-hum after that.

As for revisiting it: as an adult, you'll notice the repetition of music and animations, as well as some of the more youthful character interactions. But it's still pretty compelling.
Dexter's Lab can be found, along with many others on Cartoon Network.

Have a great day
