I will say that some older shows like Pokemon and Dragonball Z were pretty darn good. They tended to have a lot of the same type of humour and personality that many of the great western cartoons possessed. Sailor moon also got a killer Dub back in the 90's when it was premiered on YTV. Loved that show! hehe. Plus, The Funimation Dragon Ball Z dub is hands down one of my favorite cartoons of all time...I was obsessed with DBZ(Cell Saga especially) at a near disturbing level during my mid teen years. bruce faulconers atmospheric synthasized score for the most part is flat out legendary. Packed so much heart, power and emotion into the show. And i think DBZ fans will agree, that Vegeta and Future Trunks are possibly the most bad ass characters to ever appear out of a cartoon series. I've honestly never gotten chills from a cartoon before....But holy He-man was DBZ funkin' epic to the point where nothing else even comes close. Anyways, i just can't get into most anime...That is, if it's the original Japanese audio, not to mention i can't stand a lot of those J-popish theme song introductions. It all just leaves me feeling cold....The voice overs typically don't stand out from one another either and there's usually hardly any music to speak of and when there IS it usually just doesn't connect with me or stand out. And i hate a lot of that stock generic anime where the character sport thsoe empty artifical & lifeless giant Doll eyes...Dragona Ball Z however had such an incredibly unique look... It had a slight western 80's/early 90's look to it that i really loved. DBZ had three head artists, where episodes usually went from looking ok, to good, to extremely detailed. As for modern western cartoons, there aren't many really at all that i can even manage to sit through... I do like the new TMNT 2012 however, which is suprising because i can't stand most of these cheap CG cartoons or a lot of that uninspired 'flash' animated crap. Adventure Time seems pretty rad, but there's something about it that slightly puts me off...It's probably the art style. Ahhh, i'm really in the mood for some Old School disney Mickey Mouse & Donald Duck shorts from the 1940-50's. They're just magical.
