Re: Best scifi cartoon series?

Cast my vote too for Star Blazers, Robotech, Battle of the Superfriends, Battle of the Planets and Thundarr (no particular order). Can someone re-do the poll?

Then let's just shut down this entire thread because many of the best sci-fi cartoons are anime.
I suggested leaving Anime out of this because I consider anime to be a somewhat different category than simple "cartoons." I consider "cartoons" to be primarily for kids or kid/family friendly. Most anime is neither and it seems inappropriate to compare them with cartoons.

Anime tends to be more sophisticated and less censored than American cartoons, but anime like One Piece, Naruto, Fairy Tail, and Full Metal Alchemist are aimed at kids just as much as Ben 10 or My Little Pony. Shonen and Shojo anime should definitely count if we're talking about shows primarily for kids.

Jonny Quest without a doubt if you consider it enough sci-fi to qualify.

It's not a great show. but Quest's creator Doug Wildey went on to do the Planet of the Apes Cartoon.

Jonny Quest probably fits more comfortably into the category "Adventure," but there is no question that it was pushing the limits of Jet Age science so it seems reasonable to call at least some of it science fiction.

The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest clearly featured scifi elements.

what ranks in the top 10 animated television science fiction series?
It shows how young the pollster is that Jonny Quest didn't make it onto the list.

They used rocket packs, hovercraft, crawling submersibles, submarines that launched fighters, interdimensional monsters and robot spies. That show is as much science fiction as anything else listed.

Considering the inclusion of Transformers and the time period of most of the rest of the poll list, I'm surprised (Starship Troopers)Roughnecks didn't even make the list

How has no one mentioned Ulysses 31 yet?!
That was one of my favourites.

Of the ones listed, I've only seen Transformers, Flash and Trek (and Trek only since it came out on DVD). When I saw TF and Flash, I probably enjoyed TF slightly more.

Not listed (but mentioned) that I enjoyed was Mask. There was also Centurions which I liked.

Re: Best scifi cartoon series?

I really don't understand some of the poll options. It's also kind of ridiculous to exclude anime from the conversation. Anyway, I digress.

Contributing to the thread, here's a list of 20 of my favorite Sci-Fi themed cartoons, in no particular order:
Silverhawks
Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors
Transformers G1/G2/Beast Wars/Beast Machines
Red Planet
Highlander: The Animated Series
Robotech
Voltron
Batman Beyond
Men in Black: The Animated Series
Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Biker Mice from Mars
Mighty Max
Cyberquest
M.A.S.K.
Digimon
Bravestarr
He-Man/The New Adventures of He-Man
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987-1994 iteration)
Jem and the Holograms
She-Ra

Archer is also on the list. How is a "kids" cartoon?

Have only seen a few episodes, but liked what I saw. Much better than the movies (difficult to be worse). A good tie to the original novel.

The list has some obvious problems given that Drawn Together cannot be considered scifi nor is Family Guy and Rocco's Modern Life.
