Use to love the old Mr Men cartoons plus the original pink panther show.
The new shmoo was good too.

There's only one. Battle of the Planets. :-)
In the 90's, it was ReBoot

In the mid-late 70s, the only cartoon that mattered was Battle of the Planets (or G Force as it was also called).

Cue lots of reenactments in the school yard.

Dungeons & Dragons, Mr Ben, Bagpuss and The Flumps (though the last two weren't really 'cartoons' I guess) :D

I have the Flumps theme in my iTunes and often find myself humming it without realising. Its one of those tunes that's stuck with me.

Only one choice for me, I think this just about squeezes inside the 1985 limit. The absolute best -

No mention of Dangermouse yet?

FOR SHAME!

I honestly think that Custard is the single greatest episode of any cartoon serial ever made, EVER!
