I'm surprised you game up with 5 at all, but the 'don't suck' thing seems to be stretching credibility!
Admittedly I'm not familiar with all of them, but Earthworm Jim is the only game-to-cartoon-series I've seen that was genuinely worth a watch. It's absolutely hilarious.

The SatAM Sonic series sucks. Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog is far superior.

Earthworm Jim clearly should be on its own little pedestal. It stands far above the rest.

I only ever saw one Eposide of 'Zelda and Link saying "Excuuuuse Meee" every other sentence was infuriating.. Strangely they made Zelda look strong and they Monsters actually died very unusual for a Nintendo Cartoon.. Was never keen on Earthworm Jim, and Double Dragon I thought was poor as it hardly used anybody from the game's except Abobo who died on the first eposide, or did they trap him in a mirror?

The salamander OVA isn't bad, if anime is included. EWJ is bang on at the top spot though. Surprised Pokemon wasn't on the list, it isn't great but more watchable than most cartoons at least.

I like that Kirby cartoon as well. King Dedede makes a very interesting antagonist. Love that Kirby channel on the Wii!

Earthworm Jim was a good cartoon as well. Didn't really like his games that much though.

What about Caddilacs and Dinosaurs, my face was glued to the screen with that one.
I used to watch EWJ and sonic all the time, I was fortunate enough to find the EWJ comic once but I think the 2 I had got thrown away :(

I played Super Mario World for the first time this year and it was just like I imagined having watched the cartoons many years ago.

Earthworm Jim was also a favourite of mine.
