Japan has a good record (even in the current death throes of the anime industry) of doing science fiction related animation and using ideas from science fiction writers like Asimov and Clarke.

Had to go with Cowboy Bebop. Some of these aren't even sci-fi...

Re: Best scifi cartoon series?

Why is there only one Batman series on the list?

Also where is Return to the Planet of the Apes?

My vote goes to Sealab 2021.

You missed one of my all time favorites - Thundarr the Barbarian. It belongs on that list more than others listed.

Re: Best scifi cartoon series?

Well, I think I'm over the shock of seeing Rocko's Modern Life in a science fiction poll, so here's my vote.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. It has universe sized mecha throwing literal galaxies like ninja stars at each other. It also has extremely well developed characters, a unique plot, and completely deconstructs/reconstructs the stale mecha genre but who cares about that. Galaxy Ninja Stars!

Runner ups, in no particular order, are...

Beast Wars
Reboot
Code Geass
Invader Zim

Futurama. Of the choices given, I'd also give an honorable mention to Cowboy Bebop, though I prefer Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex to Bebop.

Re: Best scifi cartoon series?

theres only like 5ish scifi shows on that list. i mean rocko's modern life? it makes no sense. Therefore:

Space Runaway Ideon!

where else can you see a child get decapitated by a laserbeam?

(actually its pretty bad mostly.)

the various gundam shows include both some of the best and some of the worst scifi cartoons in my opinion. excepting the 08th MS squad-team-force miniseries-series, the general rule is it gets worse as it goes on.

Is that Anime? Lets leave anime out of this.
Then let's just shut down this entire thread because many of the best sci-fi cartoons are anime.

Since I and 99.4% of those who watched it couldn't care less about that, it doesn't bother me one bit.
