    Cartoons for kids AND adults

    If you're like me, you watch some of what your kids are watching...is there anything you enjoy watching that's geared toward kids? I know there's the standbys like Tom and Jerry and Looney Tunes, but anything else that's new and palatable as an adult?

    I have gotten hooked on Disney's "Phineas and Ferb". And of course, I still like Spongebob.

    You?

    When it was on, we always watched Kim Possible together as a family.

    iCarly and the Penguins of Madagascar now...

    Re: Cartoons for kids AND adults

    I've watched more Dora and Diego than I care to count, their not bad but definitely old by now. I've actually caught pieces of Phineas and Ferb, that's the one with the mad scientist guy and the penguin or whatever right? That's pretty funny. I can't handle Spongebob.

    The Disney morning cartoons are fairly decent. Handy Manny, a new one called Special Agent Oso, Sid the Science Kid, all watchable. I watch more cartoons than anything else by a long shot.

    Re: Cartoons for kids AND adults

    I watched Avatar with my niece and nephew a year or two ago and I didn't get totally into it but I think I would have loved that show when I was a kid.

    They are making a live action trilogy based on it though, which I will definitely see.

    My kids are a bit older, but I've been through the Dora/Diego stage.

    Yep, you're right on the Phineas and Ferb stuff, except it's a pet platypus. It's a weird show, but that's what's funny.

    My 2 year old loves Blue's Clues and Handy Manny. I'll watch the older BCs with Steve but I can't stand the newer ones with "Joe".

    Thankfully my kids enjoy Mythbusters, Deadliest Catch and Top Gear besides cartoons.

    Steve>>>Joe, for sure!

    Did you know that Steve put out an indie rock album after quitting the show? I have it, it's pretty good...seriously.

    I'm a backpack loaded up with things and knicknacks too.

    Yeah that's it, I love that scientist guy, hilarious.

    Re: Cartoons for kids AND adults

    As someone who is planning to have kids in the next 2-3 years, I am glad that there are still some cartoons that are palatable. I was beginning to think that most modern cartoons could not hold a candle to the cartoons I watched growing up. I am sure there will still be a few days when I have to pop in the DVD of Transformers - Season One from 1984, though.

    For the record, Phineas and Ferb has a awesome theme song, by Bowling for Soup. The songs in the episodes are great, too.
