This is my thread dedicated to the discussion of when Fox Kids reigned supreme. It started out in 1990 with great shows, like it's original top show...

Bobby's World. Then had stuff also good like...
Attack of The Killer Tomatoes
Defenders of Dinotron City
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
Beetlejuice
Taz-Mania

Then in the early 90's shows were added like...
X-Men
Batman: The Animated Series
Dog City
The Tick
Spider-Man
Power Rangers (even though i despised this show)
Eak The Cat
Animaniacs

Then we got things like Goosebumps. Wasn't realy scary but it helped that Fox Kids originaly had it on Friday afternoons before it got dark rather than sat mornings.

Then mid to late 90's...
Life With Louie (great show)
Ned's Newt
Sam and Max: Freelance Police
Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation ( I know, we dont talk about it)
Silver Surfer
Transformers: beast Machines

Then it started getting bad.
Spider-Man Unlimited
Avengers
Power Rangers : Million different series later befroe disney bought them and took over
Digimon
Godzilla
loads of other stuff

Now the only thing they have is TMNT.

BTW, does anyone know since Fox owns X-Men rights why they didtn produce X-Men: Evolution?

Fox needs to do a comeback, get a new kick ass Spider-Man cartoon. Mayve an animated (good) adaptation of The Avengers, with Justice League quality. Make Fox rule again!

Sorry thats my rant. Remember lots of these great shows/
 
I like goosebumps. Now they have that stupid anime all day Saturday.
 
i miss the early - mid 90s. great shows they were.
 
what about Tom and Jerry Kids? werent they fox?
 
Digimon and some of the later Power Rangers season are helluva ROCKING.
 
im sorry, but they dont hold a candle to the tick or batman or bobbys world....
 
I slightly remember the Bill and Ted cartoon. I think I even had a tape of it somewhere. I remember enjoying Beetlejuice. The first season or so was great but the show had gone downhill by the time his Jeckyl/Hyde car was introduced. I absolutely loved Sam and Max, I wish that show had continued. And I thought the Silver Surfer looked great, it had tons of potential. It's a shame it was never exploited.

those anime shows are everywhere! i mean arent there enough of them! i truly cant stand them and have no idea why they are so popular :confused: i say bring in new superhero TV series! :up:
 
Wow...This thread depressed me pretty quickly.:(
They should have like a FoxKids cartoon series of DVDs. Like every month a new show would be released on DVD or something. You know, back when shows were good.

P.S-Can't believe someone else remembers Dog City! I was beginning to think I was insane and just imagined it or something!
 
I think that 4Kids and Marvel need to get together and relaunch the Fox Box with some brand new Marvel shows. The anime needs to go (with the exception of TMNT and Winx Club. I like those shows).

I'm currently doing Marvel Spotlight in the Marvel Films forum. And, I think it could be a great launching pad for solo series on the new Marvel Fox Box!
 
4Kids blows. Marvel needs to get together with somebody a whole lot better.
 
The only channels that show non-anime on saturday mornings are Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and ABC. That Fox Box and ABC Family....Jesus. I remember looking forward to getting up on Saturday to see what new cartoons ABC, CBS, and NBC were preimering for September. Now it's all outsourced.:p
 
I know. It's all about some crazy anime that all looks alike. What in the world is the difference between Pokeman, Digimon, and Monster Rancher? they look all the same!
Oh.........TMNT are anime. They just happen to have anime shows all around them so they are type cast as one. You would think that some of these channels would realize with the success of superhero movies, that they would relaunch superhero cartoons and get rid of these stupid anime ones. I mean, they are on basically every channel on Saturday morning! I don't even wake up to watch cartoons no more.

You have to WATCH them to know the differences. =D
 
believe it or not, I tried to watch them. I wanted to know what the craze was all about. I was so mad cuase they all are to silly. Well...........I did like Monster Ranch a little, especially the story of how the bad guy came to be. I just wish they would have beat him some kind of way. Still......all the shows seem to be about calling up things to fight for you.
 
What you people have got to realise is that these shows are aimed at KIDS (yeah who would have thunk it:rolleyes: ) and KIDS LOVE these shows. Networks don't give a crap about old teens and 20 somethings pining over 80's and 90's cartoons.

not many people over 8 like those shows and most kids all like superheros, take the movies, like spider-man 2 you went into the theater and there were people from 4 to like 85 all enjoying the movie whereas if you went into a pokemon movie there would be like 4-10 year olds and their parents who really dont want to be there :p so with superhero TV shows they might be able to get the little kids and us teens and adults :)
 
ok :D

plus theres sooo many of those shows cant we have just one superhero show :(....preferably a new spider-man series like the one in the 90s :p
 
any Marvel cartoon, and I would be happy. And a real life Punisher tv series.
