Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers, syndicated
Amazon; IMDb; official website; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

I honestly don't recall whether I ever saw any of this. I might have, or I might be thinking of Blackstar, or maybe BraveStarr. (Of the three shows, the one I'm most likely to have seen is Blackstar, but I could have seen two or even all three of them.) Anyway, this is something I'd probably like to check out someday.


Animals., HBO
HBO; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; Wikipedia

I can't watch this because I don't get HBO. I have no idea if I'd like it, but I probably wouldn't mind checking it out. I first heard of it the day it premiered (Feb. 5, 2016) because it was mentioned in EW's "What to Watch" section, which said it "might be the best Adult Swim cartoon that never aired on Adult Swim." And since I like Adult Swim, I take that as a ringing endorsement.


The Archie Show, CBS
Amazon; Archie Comics Wiki; Hulu; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

Aka "The Archies." This aired several years before I was born. It's the first in a series of shows featuring characters from Archie comics. I don't think I'd want to see every series in the franchise, but I'd certainly like to start with this one, and after that at least check out a spin-off featuring Sabrina the Teenage Witch. I'm passingly familiar with Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica, as I must have read some of their comics when I was a kid, or saw some of the characters in various incarnations (I definitely remember seeing Jughead in an animated short on Sesame Street.) But I don't think I've ever seen them in any sort of ongoing format like this on a regular basis. So they're not super familiar to me, though the whole "Betty and Veronica" dynamic is a pretty familiar trope.


Avengers Assemble, Disney XD
Amazon; Disney XD; IMDb; Marvel.com; MAU Wiki; MarvelKids.com; Teletoon; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

Don't get Disney XD, so I haven't had a chance to see this. And I'm fairly sure I didn't get to see all of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, either... but I guess this isn't part of the same continuity. So whatever.


Ben 10: Omniverse, Cartoon Network
Amazon; Ben 10 Planet; Cartoon Network; CN UK; CN Wiki; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This is the fourth series in the Ben 10 franchise, but I lost Cartoon Network sometime before the end of the third series, so someday I'll have to catch up on that, and then I look forward to checking this series out. But I have no idea when that'll happen.


Beware the Batman (CGI), Cartoon Network
Adult Swim; Amazon; DC Comics; IMDb; Teletoon; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia; World's Finest

Definitely want to see this, but I don't get Cartoon Network right now. And I haven't even seen all of "Batman: The Brave and the Bold."


Bionic Six, syndicated
IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

I think I saw a very little bit of this, but I don't really remember it that well. The only name I even remember at all is Dr. Scarab. Anyway, I'd like to see it again sometime, and decide whether it interests me or not.


BoJack Horseman, Netflix
A.V. Club; IMDb; Netflix; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

I can't watch this because I don't get Netflix. And when I first heard of it, it didn't sound like something that would interest me, anyway. But since then, I guess I've read some good things about it, so I might like to at least check it out, someday.


Burka Avenger


Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, CBS
Amazon; IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This Saturday morning cartoon was based on a comic book called "Xenozoic Tales," which I never read. The only thing I remember about the show is the title. I find it strange that my memory of a show from the early 90s is as fuzzy as my memory of some shows from the early 80s. But whatever, it's something I'd like to see again, someday.


Captain Simian & the Space Monkeys, syndicated
IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This ran for one season in 1996-97. I vaguely recall reading about it at the time, and wishing I could see it, but I don't think it was on any channel I got.


Code Monkeys, G4
G4; IMDb; Shout! Factory; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

This aired in 2007-08. I feel like I might have watched the first episode, maybe even the first few eps. But I don't remember for sure, and if I did watch any of the show, I probably decided I didn't really care for it. But since then I've enjoyed a couple of webseries, Outlands and Your Dungeon My Dragon, made by the creator of this show, which had a similar style and sensibility. Because of that, I'd like to give this another chance sometime.


Dawn of the Croods, Netflix
DreamWorks; IMDb; Netflix; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

This is a prequel to the movie The Croods. I've been unable to see it because I don't get Netflix, but I'd like to check it out someday.


Dino-Riders, syndicated
fansite; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

I have some of the toys from this show. I don't think at the time I had any idea that it was a show, though the toys did come with mini-comics. So, whatever. Someday, somehow, I must watch this show.


Droids, ABC
IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; Wikipedia; Wookieepedia

I didn't get ABC when this aired in the mid-80s, so I didn't have a chance to see it. I think at some point I maybe saw a bit of it on VHS or something, but I don't really remember it. Anyway, I'd like to see the whole series, someday. (At the same time, there was a cartoon called Ewoks, which I did sort of get to see.)


The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang, ABC
Hanna-Barbera Wiki; IMDb; Retro Junk; Sitcoms Online; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This aired from 1980-81, at which point I didn't get ABC. Somehow I stumbled upon the existence of the show in 2016, before which I don't think I'd ever heard of it. Anyway, it sounds like something I might want to check out someday, if I can.


Gravity Falls, Disney Channel
Amazon; A.V. Club; Disney Channel; Disney Wiki; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

I have absolutely no idea if I'd like this or not, but it's something I'd at least like to check out someday. Unfortunately, I don't currently get Disney Channel.


Green Lantern: The Animated Series (CGI), Cartoon Network
Amazon; CN Wiki; DC Comics; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia; World's Finest

Definitely something I want to see, but I don't currently have Cartoon Network.


Guardians of the Galaxy, Disney XD
Amazon; A.V. Club; Disney Wiki; Disney XD; IMDb; Marvel.com; MAU Wiki; MarvelKids.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This is sort of a continuation of the live-action movie Guardians of the Galaxy, though not actually part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Anyway, I'd really like to see it, but I can't, because I don't get Disney XD.


The Head, MTV
Amazon; IMDb; Liquid Television; MTV; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

An animated series on MTV's Oddities, from 1994-96. Since it started like a year before I had cable, I didn't get a chance to see it, but I think I've always vaguely wanted to.


Hotel Transylvania: The Series, Disney Channel
Amazon; IMDb; SPA; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

This is a prequel to the movie Hotel Transylvania. I'd like to check it out, but I don't currently get Disney Channel.


Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, syndicated
DHX Media; IMDb; Mill Creek; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

I had some of the toys this show was made to sell in the 80s, but I think it wasn't until many years later that I even knew the show existed (or maybe I just forgot about it). I have no idea if I'd like it, but I'd at least like to check it out, someday.


Jonny Quest, ABC
Amazon; Classic Jonny Quest; CN Wiki; IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Warner Bros.; Wikia; Wikipedia

This originally aired in 1964-65, about 11 years before I was born. Since then it has occasionally rerun on Cartoon Network, so I've probably seen a little bit of it, but I don't really remember. I think quite possibly the first time I ever even heard of it would have been in the mid-90s, when I saw it mentioned on the internet. Not long after that, in 1996, Cartoon Network began airing a new series called "The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest," of which I must have seen a bit. I don't remember being particularly impressed by it, but I wouldn't mind checking it out again someday, though I'm more interested in seeing the original series. (There was also a series in the mid-80s, but I have little if any interest in that.)


Justice League Action, Cartoon Network
Amazon; Cartoon Network; CN UK; CN Wiki; DC Comics; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia; World's Finest

Can't watch because I don't get Cartoon Network.


Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness (CGI), Nickelodeon
Amazon; DreamWorks; IMDb; Kung Fu Panda Wiki; Nickelodeon; Nickipedia; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

I'm a fan of the movies on which this series is based, but I don't get Nick right now, so I haven't had a chance to see this.


The Legend of Calamity Jane, The WB
IMDb; official site; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

I don't really know anything about this cartoon. It aired very briefly on Kids' WB, but that was before I got the network, so I never had a chance to see it. I don't recall having heard of it until quite a few years later, but I may have. Anyway, I'd definitely like to check it out sometime.


The Lion Guard, Disney Junior/Disney Channel
Amazon; Disney Junior; Disney Movies; Disney Wiki; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

This sequel series to the movie The Lion King started with a TV movie ("The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar") in November 2015, before the series premiere in January 2016. It's something I wanted to see, but I don't get the channels it's on, unfortunately.


Mighty Magiswords, Cartoon Network
Amazon; Cartoon Network; IMDb; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

This started as a webseries on CartoonNetwork.com before becoming a TV series. And I love the digital shorts, so I'd really like to watch the TV show, but alas, I don't currently get Cartoon Network. Sigh.


Milo Murphy's Law, Disney XD
Amazon; A.V. Club; Disney Wiki; Disney XD; IMDb; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

I'd really like to check this out, because it's from the creators of Phineas & Ferb, plus the voice cast includes a lot of people I like (including two people from Agents of SHIELD). But alas, I don't currently get Disney XD, so I can't watch the show.


Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir, TF1 (France) / Nickelodeon (USA)
IMDb; Nickelodeon; official website; PGS Entertainment; TFOU; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

Somehow I didn't even know this show existed until I happened to find the DVD listed on Amazon while working on my website's calendar. I have no idea if I'd like it, but it looks like something I'd like to check out.


Monsters vs. Aliens (CGI), Nickelodeon
Amazon; DreamWorks; IMDb; Nickelodeon; Nickipedia; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

This is based on the movie of the same name. Unfortunately, I don't currently get Nickelodeon, so I'm not sure when I'll get to see this.


Peter Pan & the Pirates, FOX
IMDb; Neverpedia; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This aired in 1990-91, at which time I didn't have access to FOX, so I never got to see it. (I probably did have access to Fox Family when it reran on that channel several years later, but somehow I still didn't see it.) Anyway, I'm a fan of plenty of different adaptations of the story, so I reckon I'd like to check this one out someday, if I can.


The Pirates of Dark Water, Fox Kids / ABC / syndicated
fansite; IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Warner Bros.; Wikia; Wikipedia

This aired from 1991-93. I didn't get to see this because it wasn't on a channel I had access to, at the time it aired. I'm not sure if I was even aware of it until much later. But it's something I'd like to check out, someday. (Though I'm sure if I do, I'll end up horribly disappointed about it having been cancelled prematurely.)


The Powerpuff Girls , Cartoon Network
Amazon; Cartoon Network; CN UK; CN Wiki; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

This is a 2016 reboot of the 1998-2005 series of the same name. Unfortunately, I don't currently get Cartoon Network, so I can't watch the new show. But I definitely hope to see it someday. The TV series, which premiered in April, was preceded in February and March by four online shorts.


Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles (CGI), syndicated
Crackle; IMDb; Retro Junk; Sony Pictures; Starship Troopers Wiki; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

I'm pretty sure I saw at least a bit of this on a Canadian station that didn't come in too well. Not sure if I saw the whole series or not, but it only had one season, anyway. (It's also possible I didn't see any of the series, but merely wanted to, at the time it was on. But I probably saw some. I dunno.) It's an animated series that's based on the science fiction novel "Starship Troopers," and on the movie of the same name. While I don't remember anything specific about the show, I'm fairly sure it was better than the live-action movie. Anyway, I'd definitely like to check out the whole series sometime.


She-Ra: Princess of Power, syndicated
Hulu; IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wiki Grayskull; Wikipedia

When I was a kid in the 80s, I watched He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, and at some point I became aware of this spin-off, but I don't think this ever aired on any channel I got. So I've always wanted to see it.


Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century, FOX
Amazon; Baker Street Wiki; DHX Media; IMDb; Mill Creek; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This aired for two seasons in 1999-2001. I must have been aware of it at the time, and I may have seen bits and pieces, but I don't recall ever seeing a whole episode. And I don't remember anything specific about the show, but it's something I wouldn't mind checking out someday.


SilverHawks, syndicated
IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

When I was a kid, I had a bunch of the action figures from this show, and I thought they were sooo cool, even though I never had a chance to see the cartoon. I don't have them any more. I guess I must've sold them at flea markets or something. Dammit. Ah well, anyway, I think at some point I actually did manage to see a few episodes, though I don't really remember them. But I'd really love to see the whole series sometime. And to get my damn toys back!


Star vs. The Forces of Evil, Disney XD
Amazon; A.V. Club; Disney Wiki; Disney XD; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

I don't know if I'd like this, but it's something I'd check out if I had Disney Channel or Disney XD. But I don't.


Star Wars Rebels (CGI), Disney XD
Amazon; A.V. Club; Disney Wiki; Disney XD; IMDb; Lucasfilm; StarWars.com; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia; Wookieepedia

This premiered as a one-hour movie on Disney Channel in October 2014, ten days before launching as a regular series on Disney XD. Also there are some shorts that I guess aired on Disney Channel as well as online. I haven't seen any of that, since I don't get Disney Channel or Disney XD. It's set five years before Star Wars episode IV: A New Hope. And... I don't know what else to tell you, right now. I really wish I could watch it, but I haven't even finished the previous series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.


Tangled: The Series, Disney Channel
Amazon; Disney Channel; Disney Wiki; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This traditionally animated 2017 series is a sequel to the 2010 CGI movie Tangled, and a prequel to the 2012 CGI short film "Tangled Ever After." A couple of weeks prior to the official start of the series, there was a special called "Tangled: Before Ever After." Since I loved the movie, I'd really like to see the show (and the special that preceded it), but alas, I don't currently get Disney Channel. So... hopefully someday. Sigh.


Teen Titans Go!, Cartoon Network
Amazon; Cartoon Network; CN Wiki; DC Comics; IMDb; Teletoon; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Warner Bros.; Wikia; Wikipedia; World's Finest

I'm a fan of Teen Titans, so this is definitely something I want to see, but I don't currently have Cartoon Network.


ThunderCats, Cartoon Network
Amazon; CN UK; CN Wiki; IMDb; ThunderCats Wiki; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

A modern reboot of the old 1980s cartoon, which I kinda liked. So I'd like to check this out, but I don't get Cartoon Network right now.


Tron: Uprising (CGI), Disney XD
Amazon; Disney XD; IMDb; TRON Wiki; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

I think this is related to the movie "Tron Legacy," which I haven't seen yet, though I am a fan of the original Tron movie. Anyway, I haven't got Disney XD now, but even if I did, I wouldn't want to watch this before the movie.


Tutenstein, Discovery Kids
IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

A Saturday morning cartoon about a 10-year-old pharaoh who died and was mummified, then came back to life as a mummy in the modern world. He had a modern day friend named Cleo. I'm not sure if I've ever seen a whole episode, but I've seen a few bits and pieces. When this originally aired, it was opposite some show on another channel, so I think I've mainly only ever seen it during commercial breaks from whatever I was actually watching. But what little I've seen seemed cool, so I'd like to try to check out the whole series, someday.


The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat, CBS
IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

I'm sure I must have seen this Saturday morning cartoon when it aired in the 90s, and liked it. It was a sort of surreal cartoon based on... older cartoons from like the 1920s or something. I dunno. Now I don't remember it well at all, so I'd really like to see it again.


Ultimate Spider-Man, Disney XD
Amazon; A.V. Club; Disney XD; IMDb; Marvel.com; MAU Wiki; MarvelKids.com; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

Haven't had a chance to see it because I don't currently get Disney XD.


Xiaolin Chronicles, Disney XD
Disney XD; IMDb; official website; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia; Xiaolinpedia

This is a continuation of the former WB series Xiaolin Showdown, of which I was a fan. So of course I'd like to check this out, but... as I may have mentioned, I don't currently get Disney XD.
