Recently, without warning, I turned on my television to see Freakazoid! teaming up with the Teen Titans Go!  It was a shocking moment for me, since I don’t really watch TTG as a rule, and most people don’t even remember the ’90’s cartoon magic of Dexter D any more.  Of course, a lot of animated programs of the era are due for a return, what with the DuckTales resurgence, making me expect to see a new ‘Magic School Bus’ or ‘Rugrats’ episode.  Of course, since I never liked that last one, regardless of the pedigree or Tara Strong, it’ll probably end up being next, leading us to today’s Discman query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is waiting for more ‘Justice Friends’ but NOT more ‘Dexter’s Laboratory’, asking: Which 90s cartoon favorite is most overdue for a return?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    Harvey Birdman was 2000, so its kinda hard to come up with anything I’d really, actually want and hasn’t been done recently. Maybe a good Legend of Zelda cartoon, or a shared Nintendo characters thing, like Captain N.

  2. aside from the perennials that just happened to have huge cartoons in the 90’s like X-Men, Batman, TMNT, etc., the one specifically 90’s property i’d love to come back is Ren & Stimpy. R&S were a huge creative influence for me, but unfortunately their creator (and as far as i know, the sole owner of the rights) is a terrible, terrible person. so it’s probably never gonna happen without his involvement, or some amount of money going into his pocket. it’s a shame.
