This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — What is the greatest cartoon?

Djere delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by Job, Connie, and MC-B:

The Simpsons. They’ve been on top for almost 20 years, have 23 Emmys, and the show was named Time Magazine’s best TV show of the 20th Century. D’oh!


Steve dissents, joined by Mike and Chloe:

The old school Looney Tunes with Bugs Bunny and friends. There’s no improving on that.


Erin dissents, joined by David:

The Animaniacs.


Mike dissents, joined by Erin:

The Flintstones effortlessly blended the early ’60s and the Stone Age!


Tom dissents:

Felix the cat. Drama. Adventure. Comedy. Love. All mixed with Deus Ex Machina anyone can get behind, the magic bag of tricks.


Josh dissents:

He-man and the Masters of the Universe. Super strength, secret identity, magic sword, pet tiger to ride, and an ongoing battle against arch-villain Skeletor.


Chloe dissents:

Jackie Chan Adventures – it’s remarkably quotable. And it’s Jackie Chan!


David dissents:

The Tick; it was hilariously funny.


Next time: What is the ideal bedtime?

    I was surprised to see Jackie Chan Adventures on the list, not because it was bad, but because I thought I was the only one who’d ever seen it.

    I’m torn between The Tick and the old school Looney Tunes. The Tick was hilarious, but I still remember lying on the floor in my grandparent’s living room watching those old Looney Tunes when I was like five. You can’t beat that.
