That aside. Rocko's Modern Life and a bunch of old Nick Toons are now on Netflix instant. My life is complete.

This is pretty much what made me interested in a lot of things that interest me today, like SCIENCE and EVOLUTION and GENETICS.

It's probably also the reason why I'm so fucking obsessed with breeding perfect Pokémon. Thanks, Creatures. Best games ever.

  My mother was an animation nut, so I got to see all these weird cartoons growing up. I was still in training pants when I watched my first Anime which was Warriors of the Wind, the mid-80's English release of Nausicaa.
My parents still have the epic box art and tape somewhere at their house...

  One more thing - JAZZ FUCKING JACKRABBIT. My first video game ever, which came with my family's first PC in the mid-90's. I would have posted the boxart or some gameplay footage, but honestly, I think it's the soundtrack that's stuck with me the most (particularly this tune, the bonus level theme, and the Medivo theme).

Toonami in general makes me sigh in nostalgia (and the occasional tear).
From Peter Cullen's promos, to the anime (it was what introduced me to Rorouni Kenshin and Dragonball), to the sweet music, to the hosts themselves.
Goodness how I miss TOM and SARAH and all their adventures on the Absolution. They weren't just distractions to tide you over till the next episode, they were actual characters, a show in itself.
The best thing about Toonami was how personal it was to the audience. TOM would review videogames, his motivational speeches were uplifting yet never condescending, there were the story arcs where the audience could actively participate in (with help from the internet).
The way it ended, even with the silly looking TOM and CLYDES, makes me very very sad to this day.
And now looking at what Cartoon Network is playing nowadays...

>> No. 3672
>>3671
OMG LAMBCHOP! I still have one of her toys!
Loved her, such a pretentious little lady!
Loved her interactions with Shari, very mother daughter between them; her big brother Charlie Horse, and Hush Puppy was adorable.
It took me ages to find out that Shari was a ventriloquist, i totally thought they were voiced by the puppeteer/different people.
So sad when Shari died. :(
This is the song that never ends....

How about Big Comfy Couch? I don't know where my Molly doll went, but I know I still have my Snicklefritz doll.
I absolutely loved the Dust Bunnies.

Dude, I used to have the Lambchop hand puppet. That thing was boss, it used to sing me to bed every night.

Also nostalgia-ing hard the other day, found my old VHS stash and here's a list of what I've got:
Planes, Trains and Automobiles
Two episodes of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers (the two-parter where Kimberly got high off the pollen and went nuts, and When There's Smoke, There's Fire)
An episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The first two episodes of the older X-Men cartoon
The animated Transformers movie from 1985
Robotech tapes (thanks mom!)

Doom was my first FPS, but Hexen was the one that I played over and over and over again. The soundtrack and the visual style is really what stuck with me. I'm totally going to cosplay the Heresiarch at some point, holy fuck he is so badass.

Also One Must Fall 2097, Battle Beast, and Hocus Pocus. I was strictly a PC gamer until I got Pokemon in 4th grade.

There was also this. My favourite in this game was the Sentry.

I was shit with him because he was one of those characters that the computer could rape you with but would magically become complete shit the second the player picked him up. Unfortunately for me, I would not be deterred by this as I was retarded back then.

I later learned to fucking love this crappy game.

The devs had fun making this game. You can tell because it's full of hilarious bullshit. Much of it you have to unlock - one of the secret characters is a chicken.

That's right. An actual chicken. Not a person in a chicken suit or a giant chicken. Just a normal chicken. And it has its own ending after you beat the final boss with it.

Unfortunately Ubisoft is doing that thing wherein they make a new game with the same name (Petz series, Dogz, Catz) and pretend the previous game never existed (website gone, all online support gone) while at the same time adding new, horrible games to the new series (Horsez, Hamsterz, Dolphinz, etc.), which are nowhere near as good as the old ones.

The new games are shovelware, essentially. I like how companies that used to make games with character and some degree of effort have jumped on the FUCK THE CONSUMER cashcow bandwagon.

Sorry to post a YTP, but I watched this and the part where he GETS DOWN stirred some kind of vague memory for me. I saw this when I was a kid, even though I have no recollection of it other than this one really short clip and have no idea what it's called.

I can logically deduce that it's a cartoon about WWF (back when it was called that) but fuck knows about anything else. Hulk Hogan used to be my favourite. Back before he wasn't really, really too old to still be doing it. ._.

EDIT: Link's here since the new server apparently hates YouTube embedding today.
