10 Cartoon Network Shows That Deserve A Revival in India


1. Scooby-Doo:


Scooby-Doo is one of the shows that will last forever. There were so many remakes of the original series, and the concept behind the storeys was just so new. There's no limit to how many different storylines can be made. This is evidenced by the fact that Scooby-Doo was first broadcast in 1969 and continues to be broadcasted in different formats to this day. Scooby-Doo is perhaps one of the most emblematic characters ever created along with the rest of the gang: Fred, Daphne, Velma, and, of course, Shaggy.


2. Dexters's Laboratory:


There's something completely charming about this little boy's genius and all the inventions he has come up with in his underground lab. Dexter's laboratory was just one of those shows that made you laugh for no reason at all. The relationship Dexter had with his sister Dee Dee was one of the highlights of the season, and the rivalry with fellow Mandark genius was just as sweet, of course. The relentless fights of Dexter are the stuff of humor. Although he may be highly intelligent, his carelessness and over-excitation take over much of the time , making him struggle miserably at what he does. The best part of this series is Dexter's incredibly thick accent, given the fact that he's coming from an all-American family. 


3. Courage the Cowardly dog:

Here's another terrifying CN series, which was more funny than terrifying. The main hero of the show, Bravery, was such a strong character that he was able to handle the entire series on his own. It may have been because it was pink and absolutely human-like, but Bravery was fun to watch. The dog and the elderly couple with whom he lived somehow kept finding themselves in strange circumstances involving the paranormal. Though he's not the bravest guy, Bravery still manages to defend his family, no matter what it took. 


4.Powerpuff Girls:

Blossoms, Bubbles, and Buttercup were the perfect sugar, spice and all nice combinations. The superpowered trio always managed to use their abilities to save the day from all the criminals. They may have been small but they've been full of forces. The chief, Blossom, could freeze her breath on something. Bubbles, the sweetest of all, has been able to emit sonic waves. Buttercup was the hardest fighter, lastly. While lacking a special skill, she has made up for it with plenty of will and determination to fight.


5. Looney Tunes:

A series of short films mainly composed the cartoons of Looney Tunes, and it gave us some of the world's most recognisable characters and an animation heritage. We were introduced to such characters as Bugs Rabbit, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Sylvester, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, Tasmanian Devil, Speedy Gonzales and a couple more during the golden age of American animation from 1930 to 1969. For several such characters are reminiscent of laughter and constant fun on Saturday morning. Looney Tunes are almost as timeless as any cartoon would.


6. Samurai Jack:

It's odd enough for the samurai to have a Western name in the series, Jack, but his adventures were some of the best ever. Jack was sent into a dystopian future to battle an enemy, Aku, which shifted form. Like all tyrannical villains ever made, Aku was set to take over the world and Jack was set to stop him in his tracks. The series debuted in 2001 and lasted five seasons. Samurai Jack was so amazing she won a total of eight Primetime Emmy Awards, and that doesn't even include all the other awards and nominations they got during the tenure.


7. Tom and Jerry:

Talking about going  classic, Tom and Jerry are one of the most classic cartoon favourites ever. We all know the whole cat-and - mouse chase premise, yet it never fails to make us laugh, no matter how many times we watch the cartoon. Tom and Jerry were created back in 1940, with the rivalry between the two characters as the main storyline. There have been times when they would be friendly but that has almost always been short-lived. The cartoon had no dialogue whatsoever which added entirely to its magic and charm.


8. Ben 10:

In the show Ben Tennyson conquers the outer space, Ben 10. The ten-year-old gets hold of an alien gadget known as the Omnitrix; he puts it on like a watch, and then he turns it into whatever alien creature he may need to be to fight a villain in space. It took Ben 10 a while to pick up momentum as exciting as this could sound. It eventually became successful, even spawning a couple of other shows to become a franchise. From 2005 until 2008 the series lasted for four seasons.


9. Teen Titans:


There is no lack of laughs and action in this series based on the same-name DC characters. Teen Titans has been the most beloved show on the network since it's debuted on CN back in 2003. Aside from the laughs and action, Teen Titans manages to discuss serious issues and handle the creation of characters as no other animated series might. The show has had a five-season run, with reruns to this day continuing to air on the network. Younger generations are stumbling across the show and falling in love with it, just as past watchers were doing about 15 years ago. 


10. Ed, Edd n Eddy:

Who knew it can be so amusing the tale of three preteen boys, who happen to share the same name? Maybe it's because the Eds were so relatable; anyway we've all done what they used to do. It was the perfect representation of life in the cul-de - sac, where children do what they do best: try to get the other children for their money. Unfortunately they always failed miserably as brilliant as the plans of the Eds could sound. All we know that it made for good tv.
