Cartoons today don't measure up to cartoons of yesteryear

The Top Ten

1 Better Characters

They had Bugs Bunny The Smurfs, Yogi Bear, Scooby Doo minus Scrappy Doo, Felix the cat, Popeye, Mighty Mouse and you get the picture, while some old cartoon characters are featured in newer versions of their cartoons its not quite the same. - egnomac

The modern characters were better. - AinezoChan

While We Do Have Amazing Cartoons With Good Characters Like The Ones In Steven Universe, MLP:FIM, Adventure Time And Gravity Falls...
Most Other Cartoons Have Terrible, Unlikable, Flat, And Backstoryless Characters.

2 They Were Way Funnier

Cartoons today are just filled with gross out and toilet humor which make me appreciate the good old days. - ZZDOORAL

Actually, they were cringe. - AinezoChan

3 They Had Better Cartoonists

They Had William Hanna & Joseph Barbara, Chuck Jones & Tex Avery while cartoonist today don't have the same passion that all these guys have. - egnomac

Cartoonists today don't care about making the product better they just do them for the money. - egnomac

The animation very superior for its time.

Why do people praise classic cartoonists like crazy? They must be nostalgiatards. - AinezoChan

4 Better Cartoon Series

Tom and Jerry, Looney Toons, Duck Tales, The Flintstones, The Jestsons and so many great cartoons now they don't show most of them anymore. - egnomac

5 They Weren't Over the Top

Actually, Ren & Stimpy and its vastly underrated contemporary Rocko's Modern Life were both incredibly over the top, although usually not in a bad way

Not true. - AinezoChan

6 Older Episodes Were Better

Some longer running series like The Simpsons, South Park and Family Guy all had their best episodes earlier on, but over the years they've completely run out of good ideas - egnomac

Old episodes are annoying. - AinezoChan

7 Nicktoons Was Better Before

Agreed. But still better except for Loud House, Winx and Regal Academy. - AinezoChan

Yeah! Now they just air crap like Crashletes

yes

8 Cartoon Network (Nod Era) Is Better Than The New Cartoon Network

When they got rid of the noods in 2009 with a live action launch, they destroyed their channel. - Turkeyasylum

Agreed but I still hate CN. - AinezoChan

9 CW 4Kids Is Better Than Vortex
10 They Weren't Trying To Be Hip With The Kids

What is even wrong with being hip with the kids? - AinezoChan

The Contenders

11 They Had Great Video Game Shows
12 Abundance of Hand Drawn Animation
13 New Shows are More Kid Friendly
14 Jetix, Kids WB, Fox Kids, Toon Disney ,CW 4Kids are canceled they are great kids Channels

They all sucked but Jetix. Disney is better. - AinezoChan

15 Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon. The series centers on the surreal life of an anthropomorphic Australian-immigrant wallaby named Rocko as well as his friends: the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko's faithful ...read more.

16 Older Spongebob Episodes Are Better Than the New Episodes

I never got why people were saying SpongeBob was overrated or one of the worst shows ever because of a lack of good episodes. Same with the Simpsons. They just both lost their glory days of good episodes. It doesn't mean they were bad shows to start off with and it doesn't mean they are overrated.

Back in the day Sponge Bob was great but somewhere down the road the show completely fell apart. - ZZDOORAL

Finally! I thought I was the only one who thought that

Seriously? Season 9 oneards episodes are even better. - AinezoChan

17 Cartoons Were Regularly Shown In Theaters

Cartoons shown in theaters? Oh come on, that's so ridiculous! - AinezoChan

18 New Shows Don't Have Any Moral Lesson

There is no real moral lesson with the (new) old shows, like Tom & Jerry; Loony Toons (they really screwed that one) etc. with the old shows, they always had some form of lesson towards the kids. a good example is with the old Disney characters such as donald duck.

now its really just meant for wholesome entertainment that to me, makes no real sense.

Not true! Tge 7D and MLP FiM do have moral lessons. - AinezoChan

19 They're More Interesting

The new ones are all boring. People just run out of ideas.
