    The cartoons? Oh, I never really liked the cartoons... I watched it for all the Sesame Street people!

    And yet, Mike, you recently responded to your own post about summer songs on TMS, a post that had been ignored by everyone for a year:


    What's more, your second posting got a response. Maybe sometimes it does pay to ask more than once, eh?

    My personal top 5 favorites:

    5. A cartoon I've unofficially called "Leave the Flowers Alone": a child picks flowers, thinks of picking more when the first ones wilt, but reconsiders when he sees the living flowers shrink away in fear. When the child does the right thing, a burst of rosy hearts appears in the sky as upbeat music plays.

    4. "O Imagination/The O Song": a musical cartoon with stream-of-consciousness lyrics, telling a story full of long-O words. Animated by the Hubleys, just like the "E Imagination" cartoon in Episode 1.

    3. "A loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of butter." The one thing that puzzled me as a girl: why a generic "container", instead of a size (gallon/quart) or type (carton/bottle)?

    2. "Cowboy X": I always had mixed feelings whenever X was the letter of the day; a lot of the segments about that letter seemed negative or even scary to me as a girl. But the Cowboy X cartoon was an exception. The narrative was clever ("it's so crazy it just might work"..."they really weren't very smart"), and the "getting off on a technicality" ending would make any mischievous toddler laugh out loud.

    1. "1-20 Raga": I don't know CTW's official title for this one, but it's the Hinduesque counting cartoon that aired (in English and Spanish) during Episode 276. The strange instrumental music, the psychedelic patterns, and the four-armed figure counting on his fingers all fascinated me as a girl.

    Dude, I know someone who was totally afraid of that one. But I love that one myself.

    My favorites are virtually anything done by established or rising animators, especially Craig Bartlett, Mo Willems, John Dilworth (three of my favorite CN shows were done by them, Mo also wrote for KND), Bud Luckey and Sally Kruikshank.

    I also loved the guest cartoons... Superman and Batman (still don't get the one in the pilot about the letter D, though) Jughead Jones, and of course the Pink Panther.

    By my absolute favorite was the cat impatiently waiting for his dinner. That one's so good, it should have also toured with animation shows.

    No one's replied to this thread for five years but I figure threads like this will always be relevant.
    Here's some good ole' Bud Luckey animation, this is hands down my favorite of all time:

    The style of the animation is beautiful and so is the song. The two kids playing at the end gets to me every time :cry:

    As for more recent cartoons, this is certainly one of my favorites:

    This one has a very classic feel to it.

    Earlier this week, or the week before, I had done a fanart piece on classic Sesame animation, which was fueled by my rekindled admiration for skits from the first season, such as this one by Cliff Roberts.

    Recently it occurred to me just how much Jim Thurman had a hand in these animations (and ones made later on, like "Teeny Little Superguy" and "Calcutta Joe," the modern rhino) and what a fun and distinct voice actor he is when he's not writing. I wonder if he also had anything to do with the old McDonaldland ads.
