    The Ducktales video game has held up as well, they even did a Remastered Edition a few years ago.

    Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers holds up well too IMO. Haven't tried Tale Spin or Darkwing Duck though.

    Part of a group of shows from when Disney was pouring lots of money into syndicated morning cartoons (along with their Second Golden Age feature movies).

    Gummi Bears, DuckTales, Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, and Gargoyles are the most notable. Still highly resonate among the 25-40 crowd.

    It's great to watch old Looney Tunes and Fleischer Studio cartoons. Not just because they can be racy, but they're as subversive as anything on TV now.

    Don't forget Merrie Melodies.

    I have never understood the difference until this moment:

    Producer Leon Schlesinger had already produced one cartoon in the Looney Tunes series, based on music, and its success prompted him to try to sell a sister series to Warner Bros. His selling point was that the new cartoons would feature music from the soundtracks of Warner Bros. films and would thus serve as advertisements for Warner Bros. recordings and sheet music. The studio agreed, and Schlesinger dubbed the series Merrie Melodies. Walt Disney Productions had already scored with their Silly Symphonies. Since cartoon production usually began with a soundtrack, animating a piece of music made it easier to devise plot elements and even characters.

    The origins of the Merrie Melodies series begin with the failure of a live action series of musical shorts called Spooney Melodies, which featured popular songs of the day. These shorts were basically an early type of music video that included segments with a popular artist singing along with appropriate background sequences. Warner Bros. wanted to promote this music because they had recently acquired (in 1930) the ownership of Brunswick Records along with four music publishers for US $28 million. Because of the success of their Looney Tunes series, Warner Bros. decided to develop a new series of animated musical shorts called Merrie Melodies. Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising led the development. It was meant to be a series of musical cartoons that featured hit songs of the day, especially those then owned by Warner Bros. and featured in their musical films. In 1931, many of the shorts featured the orchestra of Abe Lyman, one of the most famous band leaders of his day.
    I remember wondering as a kid why some of the cartoons were built around song lyrics and others weren't.

    Re: TV: The Golden Era Reborn

    There's an excellent WW2 sub movie on right now on TCM called The War Below. It is EXTREMELY similar to the "Balance of Terror" episode of Star Trek TOS. ("You and I are of a kind. In another reality, I could have called you 'friend'.") I had neither heard of the movie nor had known the episode (one of the very best, IMO) had more than a general debt to movies such as Run Silent, Run Deep, but the particular similarities between the German and Romulan commanders are too strong to be coincidence.

    Looney Tunes ARE the epitome of cartoons. However, Rocko's Modern Life is far and away the best cartoon made since them.
