I use to love Catch the Peigion and Whacy Races sadly these are no longer on now. But my 2 grandchildren are getting to the age were they are being to watch TV so I guess its just a matter of time till I end up with new favourites
 
Just throwing it out there...did anyone ever watch The Banana Splits?

For me, all of the above, plus many more Japanese imports. Some that come to mind: Yattaman, Hokuto no Ken, Mazinger, DragonBall, etc etc.

These days I've been enjoying catching up with all seasons of Jojo Bizarre Adventures, and I just started Monster.
 
I was an adult when it came out, but The Tick TV cartoon series was great, and had a lot of innuendo that adults got but kids didn't, much like Spongebob.

As a kid, Top Cat, Huckleberry Hound, Speedy Gonzales, Deputy Dog, Quick Draw McGraw, Magilla Gorilla, Cool McCool, Underdog, Secret Squirrel, Bullwinkle and Rocky, Dudley Do-Right, Snagglepuss, Peabody and Sherman, Beanie and Cecil, Tennessee Tuxedo, Ricochet Rabbit, Atom Ant, and The Beatles to name a few.
 
As a child: Popeye (The Fleisher era), (Pre-Scrappy) Scooby Doo, The Flintstones, Looney Tunes, Merrie Melodies, *The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends, *Jonny Quest, Tom & Jerry, Woody Woodpecker, Droopy
(* favorites)

As an adult (via my kids): Dexter's Lab, Power Puff Girls, Avatar The Last Air Bender, Legend of Korra, Spongebob.

As an adult: The first 7-8 seasons of The Simpsons, Bob's Burgers, Dr. Katz Professional Therapist, Cowboy Bebop.

Movies: Spirited Away, Kiki's Delivery Service, Totoro, etc. by Miyazaki and/or Studio Ghibli

I used to watch the Banana Splits, also enjoyed H.R. Puff n’ Stuff, another with live action. The Amazing Spider-Man, Rocket Robinhood, The Flintstones, Johnny Quest, Hercules, Super Friends and The Fantastic Four were some other time killers.
 
I'm only giving the tip of the iceberg.
Looney Tunes, and Tom & Jerry are timeless. I still watch them now.
@hairless wonder reminded me about Talespin, I loved that show! Also in my younger days were Ren & Stimpy, Batman: The Animated Series, and anything on Cartoon Network from the mid 90s to early 2000s.
A lot of anime, the top ones being DragonBall, Cowboy Bebop, and One Piece.
 
This was a brilliant show. I'd forgotten about it.
I agree, I thought it was very original and ground-breaking for its time. My wife and I really enjoyed it back in the day. The humor could be pretty dry and sarcastic so it probably wasn't for everyone. I should revisit the show to see how it's stood up over time.
 
I forgot to add:

As a little kid:
Masters of the Universe, She-Ra: Princess of Power, Transformers, Thundercats, Challenge of the GoBots, The Smurfs, Snorks, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, Care Bears, Inspector Gadget, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Kidd Video, Doraemon, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and Schoolhouse Rock.

As a late elementary school-junior high school kid:
King Arthur and the Knights of Justice, The Real Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Gummy Bears, Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers, Aladdin, Goof Troop, and Muppet Babies.

As an adult:
Family Guy, King of the Hill, Futurama, Dragonball Z, Recess, Pepper Ann, Class of Titans, The Legend of Tarzan, Hercules: The Animated Series, and Buzz Lightyear of Star Command.
