Reply 18 of 71 ijerry Posts: 615member August 6, 2002 12:00PM I like the classics...Voltron, Thundercats, Mask, Trans-Formers, Spinwheel, Fraggle Rock.Real classics...All in the family, Whats Happening?. Reply 19 of 71 evangellydonut Posts: 76member August 6, 2002 12:33PM after so many posts and nobody mentioned Futurama? Fox can'd it mid-way last season and said there would be another season, but how many eps? like 6 or something? *sigh*the Simpsons was good for a while, and it's a good thing that its going into the final season, but you can't seriously expect King of the Hill to replace it?!? it's a Piece of Sh!t!!!!! boring as hell...Now, only if they ran Futurama for like 10 seasons and 300 eps...If you don't like offensive humor, don't watch it, simple as that! Reply 20 of 71 matsu Posts: 6,558member August 6, 2002 1:07PM The critic was great (but I'm not sure about the squiggly lines).I'm also not sure about why I like Fraggle Rock so much as a kid??? It's still on sometimes on the local public broadcaster. «1234» Sign In or Register to comment.
