and Believe me, the smurfs will be up with those garbage movies as one of the worst of the century.

Peyo would be absolutely ashamed at this if were alive, it's been almost 2 decades since he died in christmas time 1992.
the death of peyo and the time traveling season 9 was the beginning of the end of the legacy of the smurfs.

and this upcoming movie will be the final nail in the coffin.

Little kids? Yeah, you're right. Older kids? Shows like Clone Wars and The Simpsons are fine for older kids.

I wouldn't put South Park on a best of list. Occasionally it's fantastic. But it's just obnoxious more often than not.

The '80s only continued this trend --- and then some. At least in the '70s, cartoons were only intended to attract kids so that networks could air the commercials. In the '80s, the shows BECAME the commercials (Smurfs, Care Bears, Gummi Bears, My Little Pony, Transformers, G.I. Joe, Pac-Man, Super Mario Brothers, etc.) It wasn't about story or character or even good animation. It was all about selling product.

The WB saved American cartoons in the '90s, giving us Batman: The Animated Series, Animaniacs, Pinky & the Brain, etc. Real art returned to the animation, intelligence came back to the writing on a level that hadn't been seen since the '50s Chuck Jones classics, and stories were so good that they appealed to both adults and kids.

Disney even got its groove back in the '90s (The Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King).

And then along comes Pixar, doing all of the above and then some.

The '90s may have been crap for music, but for animation, it was a new golden era.
For me the 80's saved cartoons from extinction, that was the new golden era.
and yes it selling a commercial product, but at least it had a story, characters and situations.
Especially the smurfs.

I Rather watch 80's cartoons then watch all of the junk now and 2000's to present era had none of the talent nor substance that the 80's had and yes 90's was the second golden era, it was also the beginning of the end of cartoons as well, it started becoming bad in the mid to late 1990's

And Jonathan Winters, you may have been great as grandpa smurf in the original cartoon series the smurfs, but you are no the late don messick here as papa smurf.

and yes the 80's were selling products in cartoons, but 90's and 2000's were selling products from cartoons as well.
tiny toon adventures video game, the power rangers mania, spongebob square pants and others.

This show saved NBC Saturday Morning cartoons and television cartoons as a whole.


YouTube - ‪Joe Barbera on developing "The Smurfs" TV series - EMMYTVLEGENDS.ORG‬‏

Barbera saved the show.

Not to me, I'll stick to the original cartoon thank you very much.

The Original cartoon had substance.
