During my early college days (oh so long ago!), I'd go to as many animation specials as possibles at various theaters/colleges. (Used to try cut-out animation myself. . . . just don't have the time or patience.)
With regards to T.V. cartoons, well . . . .
Love the older 'toons: Bugs Bunny, Road Runner, Johnny Quest, with my favorite being Rocky and Bullwinkle, etc.
With regards to the new 'toons: Simpsons, Futurama, South Park (it's a wickedly sick cartoon!), Sponge Bob Square Pants, Cow and Chicken, Dexter's Laboratory, Ed Edd and Eddy, King of the Hill, etc. . . .
I'm a cartoon junkie!
