Basically, are there any cartoons you guys know about, but barely anyone else seem to remember? Or cartoons you thought was some randome thing you did, only to soon find out it was an animated TV series? Can be any kind of cartoon, and anyone here who doesn’t watch cartoons can feel free to mention a forgotten TV show in general.

I remember on my local kids channel (not any of the main cable channels but on my country’s channel on tv) back when I was younger, after my favourite childhood cartoon, american dragon, finished its timeslot after that would be another show called ‘Legend of the dragon’. I mean it must have made sense to air 2 shows with dragon in the title back to back. After a long while I figured that this Legend of the dragon cartoon was just a fever dream because I never heard anyone talking about it, and then recently curiosity got the better of me and I looked it up and it actually exists.

And also that said, American dragon should be mentioned here too. It’s my favourite childhood show as a kid, but I barely hear anyone talk about it these days, and most people who do just say its ok or its ok but the 2nd season was meh (which is sorta true but I just enjoy the first season for what it was)

So what are some cartoons you guys feel are forgotten, barely mentioned, or just extremely obscure? Feel free to share!

... or really pretty much most cartoons from the early-mid 2000s. Those were some good times that I've missed, if I'm going to be honest.

American dragon was indeed awesome as was Fillmore!

Nobody ever seems to remember Samurai Pizza Cats or Megas XLR.

Megas XLR.
I do!! I used to watch it a bit but now I barely remember much. :c All I remember is that the main character was a mechanic who basically found a giant robot that he kicks ass with, basically. And that's all that part I cared about, haha.

I've had a backwards sleep schedule since I was young and used to literally turn on Cartoon Network after Adult Swim ended, so I could probably think of a bunch. The first ones that come to mind are...
*Hero 108 (I freakin' loved this one for some reason)
*Gormiti
*Chaotic

...I would've said Bakugan was forgotten, but apparently they're bringing it back. Whattaya know!

OMG yesss

To anyone missing this show, I give you all 95 Episodes, the two Episode prequel(recommended for new viewers. Why they didn’t start with that to begin with I’ll never know), Show’s music album(yeah how many shows have that?) and the show’s catchy as hell theme song: Code Lyoko English Channel Just peruse the channel’s videos. Start with Xana Awakens prequel for those new to it.

As for the show, I pretty much watched it in it’s entirety multiple times. Show centers around 5 Protagonists, four of whom(Jeremy, Ulrich, Yumi and Odd(yes Odd lol)) attend a private school in the suburbs of Paris, France. The school, while fictional in terms of name, does indeed actually exist along with the Abandoned Factory back when the show was made(totally surreal). The fifth protagonist in Aelita is the one I deem to be the keystone member or the one that the entire show is centered around. She exists on a virtual world of Lyoko where a maniacal and self-aware Computer Program Xana exists. The virtual world is housed on a Super Computer located in the basement of an Abandoned Factory and the Computer Program is able to cause havoc in the real world, forcing the other four kids to go to the Abandoned Factory where three of them are teleported(aka Virtualized) into Lyoko. There they battle the Computer Program’s minions and in a repetitive fashion in Season 1, end the attack before it causes irreparable harm.

At the end of Season 1, Aelita is brought into the real world but is forced to go back. At the beginning of Season 2, Aelita is brought back permanently and they continue to battle the Antagonist until the end of the show where they finally destroy it. Not really a spoiler but a foregone conclusion if the show was to end. They rebooted the series back in 2012 but I don’t speak of it for several reasons, not the least of which is that it was in French only.

As for forgotten cartoons... let’s start with the following:

Heathcliff
Woody the Woodpecker
Scooby Doo <- not really on TV anymore(although I hear they’re doing a reboot. Talking the old school original)
Flintstones(eh that show wasn’t bad)
Johnny Quest(my mother’s favorite)
Popeye
Ducktales(not the reboot but the 80’s Classic)
Chip&Dale Rescue Rangers(80’s Classic)
Tail Spin
Darkwing Duck(Lets get Dangerous meme lol)
Goof Troop
Tiny Toon adventures
Animaniacs
Pinky and the Brain

And I could go on....

Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go! was and will probably always be a guilty pleasure of mine because it wasn't really that great of a show but I really enjoyed it anyways. :')

I remember Freakazoid being a rather obscure cartoon. I think now it was a cult following though?

Wander Over Yonder.

A fantastic animated series prematurely cancelled by an uncaring corporation, so it technically counts as a forgotten cartoon.

The amount of homages in Season 2 and Lord Dominator being a phenomenal villain made the experience that more worthwhile.

The show had many funny and heartwarming moments.

Both Wander and Sylvia, as well as Hater and Peepers, were effective duos that contrasted each other quite well. Their actors delivered fantastic performances and sounded like they enjoyed their roles.

I hope, at the very least, the show makes it to Disney+ for future audiences to tune in at any given time.

Insektors. For about a decade, I had the ending tune in my head every now and then but I had no recollection of from where it came - only that there was creatures and color and dirt and possibly bugs in a tv show - until a year or two ago when someone here on PC finally understood what I was rambling about haha.

Anyone remember Courage the Cowardly Dog? I remember catching some episodes as a kid, mainly the one with the blue thing that said "You're not Perfect." *Shudders* Gives me chills to this day.
Wouldn't exactly call it forgotten but more so extremely underrated. That show deserved more recognition for the subtle nuances that go unnoticed by little kids. Re-watch as a Teen or an Adult and you're like damn this was better than I thought.

I do have a couple more submissions for relatively forgotten Cartoons from CN's early days. I believe both are on their Boomerang service that they run now but here's their intro's. For the first one, if anyone wanted to be a military pilot then this may have had an impact on you if you saw it.



As for the 2nd one, this one definitely was a forerunner for CGI animated series. Really underrated show I felt at the time too.
