X-Men: The Animated Series

Aired: 1992-1997

You can watch all 76 episodes of X-Men: The Animated Series on Marvel.com. If you haven’t already clicked that link and disappeared down the X-Hole, here are some reasons why the show was so much better than its rivals. As well as the built-in brilliance of the key team’s chosen characters – notably including your favourite card-throwing Cajun, Gambit – it dealt with issues everyone else would run a mile from: the Holocaust, AIDS, divorce, religion and, of course, racial prejudice. Then there were its interpretations of classic runs from the comics, notably Days Of Future Past (the inspiration of the upcoming film of the same name), The Legacy Virus and The Dark Phoenix Saga, on top of cameos from Deadpool, Spider-Man, Punisher and many more. Sure, firework-firing ‘80s hangover Jubilee could be one of the most annoying superheroes ever created, but there’s more than enough bickering between Wolverine and Beast to make up for it.

1 Star Fleet
a sort of next level Thunderbirds - with spooky puppets, giant robots and vader-esque villains. How dare you exclude this superb Sat morning fare (usually sandwiched inbetween number 73 I think or the Saturday Dustbin with Gaz Top) More

2 Visionaries!
Disappointed that Visionaries didn't make the list. Medieval Knights that could turn into animals knocking seven shades of shiiiiii out of each other. Classic. More

4 Scary stuff!
Chorlton & The Wheelies used to scare the crap out of me, and it probably still would! Nobody ever knows what I'm on about when I mention it. Kudos Empire! (Ps Shame the Flumps wasn't on there) More

5 Missing A Few Goodies.
Like the list, but what about Johny Quest, The Flintstones and Scooby Doo: Where Are You?. Why aren't they on the list. More

13 RE: Star fleet
Danny I managed to get a copy of this a few years ago and watched it all. It certainly stood the test of time and is bloody brilliant. More

14 Animaniacs
This cartoon was pure genius. WB were once going to make a movie out of it. Shame as this would have been brilliant. Certainly right up there with any of the classic Looney Tunes cartoons. More

15 39 year old thanks
As a 39 yr old, I was just too old for He-Man. I have not seen the Centurions since I was a kid, and loved Spiderman & friends. That Godzilla trailer took me right back ! (Godzooki .... HA HA HA ! ! !). Chorlton & the Wheelies was my fave as a young kid. Just how messed up were the TV execs back in those days ? Probably still coming down from the 60's More

16 Star fleet
How about mad Japanese puppet show Star Fleet,which Brian May loved so much that he got together with Eddie Van Halen & released a kick ass version of the theme tune? More

Posted by Darth Smiffy on Thursday October 31, 2013, 15:18

17 TMNT?
Think i loved nearly all of these except one or two that predate me. So many classics that its hard nay on impossible to pick a favorite! God damn love that Mask is there though, but what about those heroes in a half shell? Turtle power! More

18 RE:
L: lorn99 Around the World in Eighty Days ow many people remember sending off for the lyric sheet for the theme tune to that and singing along with Andy Crane in the Broom Cupboard with Edd The Duck? More

19 Chorlton and the wheelies was banned
Honest! On the witches book, rather than a pentacle it had the star of David (the designer didn't know how to draw a pentacle) so it was thought to be antisemitic (hook nosed ugly witch clutching a book with the star of David on it- not good imagery). It was all an honest mistake, but it's actually more controversial than you'd think. More
