Most of the folks who post here grew up watching kids' cartoons, and now some of us are animating these cartoons ourselves. Today, most kids' shows (in the US, anyway) are animated, or contain animated characters. While a lot of these cartoons get dubbed as "corny" by adult viewers, you gotta respect the people who actually try to provide quality cartoons for children.
I don't really care for most of the kids stuff on tv, but there are a few shows that I consider outstanding...
Sagwa the Chinese Siamese Cat:
A PBS cartoon based on Amy Tan's book by the same name. The animation is very stylized, and made to resemble chinese paintings. Also, the writing and voice talent are fabulous!
A cartoon Nick Jr. made for toddlers. This has to be the best 3D cartoon out there--the acting is believable, the sets are beautiful, and the choreography for the dance numbers is amazing. (It also features great music.) Unlike most 3D tv shows, this one manages not to look stiff or blobby.
Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends:
You've probably already heard of it. I was lucky enough to catch a marathon of this show last summer. The art in this cartoon is amazing.
Those are my top picks. How about you guys? Have any of today's kids' cartoons earned your respect?
