cartoons that an entire generation really loves or hates?

Inspired by that woody woodpecker tweet and how zoomers also seem to hate the shit out of foster’s home for imaginary friends. On the other hand I’ve yet to meet a boomer who hates the flintstones or a gen xer with scooby doo
What are some shows you think will be (un)popular with gen alpha and beyond?

            I know, I'm brazilian. I'm wondering what's the tweet.
            I've seen people on Cinemaphile hate on early Woody because honestly, he was a total jerk, but there's some later shorts that are pretty funny.

        I feel like there was a real generational divide on Teen Titans Go where it was really popular among kids but people who grew up with the original Teen Titans hated it.

        Reminds me how people who grew up with the comic TItans hated the cartoon

        never seen anybody hate spongebob (except fans who hate the later seasons.) at worst there's people who just think it's a generic kid's show and people who are annoyed that it's so popular

          The annoyance with Spongebobs popularity has to do with the Spongebob Standard that is unfairly placed on new shows since the mid 2000s.

      There was also a generational divide on Teen Titans 03 where those who were young when it premiered loved it but those who knew the comics hated it, but this has been memory holed

      I grew up with the 03 show, and still enjoyed what I saw of TTG as an adult, I guess I understand wanting one thing and getting another, but TTG is just so obviously a different type of show, its hard for me to even compare them

    Because Walter Lantz cartoons weren't endlessly shown like Looney Tunes and Popeye, kids went decades without watching them. For a lot of younger people, they know Woody Woodpecker as a laugh and a Seinfeld reference.

      As a millennial (92), I remember watching some Woody Woodpecker on VHS and TV, though I held no firm opinion on it. Popeye on the other hand was my jam, and Mighty Mouse for some reason.

      I hardly ever see a good word about it unless it’s just Frankie cooming which is pretty much its own fan base at this rate.
      Shame too fosters is a fun show. But you can see it hasn’t reached the meme heights of like Phineas and Ferb or FOP or Jimmy neutron let alone Simpsons, Family Guy, ATLA or SpongeBob tier. Which is weird for a show that was apparently widely liked at one point

    GenXers are the only ones who care about 80's cartoons like He-Man or Thundercats

      Scooby Doo is pretty bad. It's basically The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew in cartoon form. Which is to say, it's pretending to be a mystery but is really just a bunch of idiots wandering around until they stumble upon a solution.

      >GenXers are the only ones who care about 80's cartoons like He-Man or Thundercats
      This is slightly more true, although I don't think any of these cartoons really has much worth. They really were just toy commercials.

        That's what makes for good cartoons after the Golden Age.

          To be honest being a toy commercial doesn’t really mean anything, a lot of Merry Melodies were just WB pushing a star or record they had and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was made purely so Quaker could market a line of chocolate bars. Being a shill product doesn’t mean anyone creative involved has to just tune out and not give a shit.

            In fact, you can argue that it being a toy commercial sometimes gives people even more freedom since most executives wouldn't give less of a shit about quality, and as long as it doesn't hurt the brand you can do whatever, like with Real Ghostbusters or Beast Wars

            Well, that's what I said. Commercials used to mean someone would be pushing them to do a good job, good designs etc.

      A lot of those parents also had beef with ed Edd n eddy
      As for the other OP question, I think a rugrats reboot aimed for gen alpha was a bad move since these days there are tiny cameras and helicopter parents everywhere these days. So these kids having free rein must be an alien feeling
      Now if the reboot was about the Rugrats (mid millennials) being actually all grown up with their own kids dealing with their elderly boomer parents not knowing any better would make way more sense.

      I felt after a while like I was only watching Looney Tunes because I was supposed to as a kid; action and narrative based cartoons were way more interesting to me and then-modern comedy shows felt funnier and less reliant on "lol ANVIL!" comedy. I'll give those theatrical shorts the usual respect for the quality of animation, but I have no interest in watching most of them.
