    Do Batman TAS and Superman TAS count? If so then then.

    Somebody will say TMNT, but they're wrong.

      I would say no to all three of those being reboots. They're all adaptations. A reboot is something different from another adaptation of source material.

        The Heathcliff cartoons by DiC were better than the ones made a few years earlier by Ruby-Spears. But that might be a situation like this one

      Of course the original DCAU counts.

      I will add Thundercats 2011.

    There are Cinemaphile examples (Cutie Honey, Devil Man) but that's different.

    I don't think there are any Cinemaphile examples.

    It's strange how the original Flintstones, Jetsons, Yogi Bear, Jonny Quest, Scooby-Doo, Rocky & Bullwinkle, and George of the Jungle are all still the best. You'd think we could make better cartoons than we did in the 1960s, yet here we are.

      Has there ever been a reboot of a 70s cartoon before? That would have to be better than the original, right?

        None that I can think of.

        Companies don't make reboots with the aim of improving upon the original, they do it to mine a successful IP as a means to make cheap money. With an emphasis on "cheap", hence why almost all cartoon reboots are trash.

          Also because registering character name and likeness costs money. If you already paid that money.....

          It's funny that Chuck said this when most of his best cartoons have extremely limited animation.

            I don't care what Chuck Jones said, I just think it is a funny joke. Also, limit animation all you want, Chuck could actually make it MORE more interestingly (characters move differently depending on situation, mood, etc) when they do move. Rocky & Bullwinkle for example while not completely terrible, does not have interesting movement for the characters. The professional term is character animation (don't move everyone at the same speed and intensity all the time).

              It might be funny but Chuck meant it in a disparaging way, as he usually did. He was talented guy who made some good cartoons, but he was also an ornery old git.

            Jellystone is for zoomer homosexuals. But you know that already. Your game needs some more work, but I'll give it a 3/10. One extra point for getting two replies.

    Thundercats 2011 i'd argue is way better than the original. As well as He-Man 2002 and even He-Man CGI i found myself enjoying more than the original and being functionally superior.

    4Kids TMNT was better than the 80's one (fite me) and i'm not sure if it counts, but the 3 Caballero's the series is way better than the movie and has nothing to do with it, so i'd count it as a reboot..

    Mystery Incorporated had an interesting overarching plot, fleshed out the characters more, and was still funny on top of all that, plus the art style was stylish without being jarringly different (like Be Cool Scooby Doo or the live action films)

          The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest managed to take one of the greatest action/adventure cartoons ever and turn it into an average 90s cartoon with some shit-awful CG thrown in for bad effect.

      Real Adventures wasn’t bad, but it’s still weaker than the OG. New Adventures was pretty mediocre.

      The only reboot of Johnny Quest that managed to surpass the original was Venture Bros.

    The ultimate redpill is realizing that the best TMNT is still the original comic.

      I love the original Mighty Mouse. It's a fun superhero parody series that feels like a product of its time in the best sense.
      I've never seen the reboot. What's so great about it?

        It's actually pretty terrible, though it is interesting for being something of a proto-Ren & Stimpy.

    2003 TMNT falls apart near the end (due almost entirely to executive meddling mind you, fricking suits) but overall it's a very competent product and I think it's superior to the original 1980s cartoon overall.
