Re: I actually watched a couple of episodes of "Inspector Gadget" recently
I liked Ren and Stimpy when I was a teenager and thought they were a good cartoon for older kids and grownups. Kind of like the Simpsons and Beavis and Butthead.
I loved Loony Tunes as a kid. Bugs Bunny was a sadistic torcherer. He would drive men to suicide. Plus, the cartoons were violent and racist and funny as hell. You couldn't show a wimpy kid these cartoons today.
