This month we’re trying to decide which cartoon from the golden age of cartoons had the greatest theme song. We started out with 64 of the best cartoons of the 80's and the 90's, but it’s time to whittle that number down further. So let’s go vote!
The Madness brackets make their triumphant return. We took April off, but now we’re back, and this time around we’re answering the question, which decade had the greatest cartoon theme song? It’s a battle between the 1980s and the 1990s, and it’s your votes that will decide.
You might be familiar with the music of this little cartoon — that is Musorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain. Russian artist Galina Shakitskaya was the director and the writer behind this 10-minute-long gem, which was created using oil painting on celluloid. As a lead artist, she also created many more cartoons, including …
Tragety trigger warning. From the creator of Gravity Falls:
Maurice LaMarche, voice actor who brought most of us our childhood, posted this up on Twitter and Vine a bit ago. Apparently, the Justice League and their beloved Hall are coming down at WB studios. Maurice adds appropriate narration to the scene as heard on the Vine.

Children's programming used to be a highly lucrative television market, but…
He is still doing some scripts and storyboards, but he left cause of the stress.
I can't blame the guy. Lauren Faust kinda had the same shit happened to her with MLP.
Saturday morning American broadcast TV was once animation's home field. Filling a cereal bowl with artificially colored sugar pebbles and staring at the tube was every kid's weekend plan. Not any more: For the first time in 50-plus years, you won't find a block of animation on broadcast this morning. It's the end of…
