Re: Best scifi cartoon series?

If the poll included them I'd vote for the Mobile Suit Gundam and Macross anime franchises. I'd also like to put in an honorable mention for Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

It's not a great show. but Quest's creator Doug Wildey went on to do the Planet of the Apes Cartoon.
I just finished watching Return to the Planet of the Apes on Hulu. That is the creepiest, darkest opening sequence I've ever seen in a TV cartoon.

The show itself is a mixed bag. Its animation is so limited it makes Filmation's animation look fluid, but the still art is sometimes really striking and beautiful in a rough Doug Wildey-ish way. It's also very slow-paced, which felt cinematic at first but got a bit tedious after a while. The storytelling's very interesting, though, very rare for the era in that it had a continuously developing arc over the season, with every episode contributing something to the larger storyline. Although that got me expecting some kind of a big finish in the finale, and it didn't really deliver.

Still, it's the one part of the Apes screen franchise I don't think I've seen before (which is odd, since it was on when I was seven, and it doesn't seem to have been aired opposite anything else I watched). And now I've filled that gap in my knowledge, and I'm glad I did.
