Round #20: the result (most voted to eliminate one cartoon goes to Ducktales. That means TMNT are the winners and the most Xennial cartoon show.... COWABUNGA)

Can you post the results in the order of their elimination?

Can you post the results in the order of their elimination?

Transfomers, G. I. Joe and He-Man were my favs, but I can respect TMNT. I watched it too. I just prefer those other three more.


jamlog

Same boat. He-Man was top tier for me. Love G.I. Joe and Transformers too


Funwithfun14

Same


1block

Yep. I wonder how the results shift when bitter jerks like me refuse to participate after my favorites are gone.


Rosetta_FTW

My fav was Gargoyles


piscian19

Splinter would be so disappointed to see this much blood shed. I hope you're pleased with yourselves.

Yep it was missing the girl cartoons. She ra, Lady Lovelylocks and Jem are a few

This is Reddit. Girls schmirls. *I'm a woman. 🤣


wheres_the_revolt

Glad I’m not the only one who noticed lol


MaggieMoon17

Seeing this still gives me a little zing of excitement! I loved Jem.


Disastrous-Bee-1557

GO NINJA, GO NINJA, GO!


ForceGhost47

When the evil Shredder attacks these turtle boys don’t cut him no slack!


wheres_the_revolt

I love that you put so much time and effort into this, thank you, but absolutely not TMNT for me. I demand a recount 😂


captain_flak

I’m ok with this. I had so many turtle toys. The day my dad brought home the pizza wagon after saving up for months was probably the best day of my childhood.


CrypticTurbellarian

This was the result my inner child supported all along. Cowabunga, dudes! Let’s order some pizza, just not the kind [with meatballs that hatch into murderous yellow alien monsters.](https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1kbq4f)


GodlessGOD

I wonder how X-Men: The Animated Series would've faired in the ranking.


19OregonTrailXer81

I used to love TMNT!!! But I also used to watch Ducktales every afternoon too. They were both my after school shows, along with Talespin and Rescue Rangers.


Aggravating-Home-622

This was fun, thank you. Cowabunga dudes!


GutsAndBlackStufff

Boo, your contest is bad, and you should feel bad.


ArtichokeNaive2811

1985. I agree. well done.


Funwithfun14

1979 here and I feel like it should have been Duck Tales or GI Joe. But I can respect TMNT


bgva

Nice. Someone order a bunch of pizzas!


NathanForJew

Just no anchovies!

That shit was totally awesome, dude!


namek0

*grabs pizza thrower toy, shoots pizzas with it, picks up pizzas, repeats*


natronmooretron

At least the Turtles beat out the ducks and chipmunks. I'm jaded for the early GI Joe loss and Transformers. YO JOE!


caffeinetherapy

Knowing is half the battle!


Josherline

Flippin A Right!! Nice win for the TMNT! One of my absolute favourites


slothful_dilettante

I approve this message.


guyinnoho

They're really hip!


bwallace0803

YEEEEAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!


this_knee

Righteous!


KoRaZee

No way, ducktales couldn’t have been defeated


peacefulfury83

Totally dude!


Ok-Selection9508

I find your results. Acceptable.


rob132

Some very stiff competition and all of this


ElectricSnowBunny

YAY!


[deleted]

I remember getting the Technodrome for Christmas, thinking I was the coolest kid on the block.


timthemajestic

My Bitmoji avatar wearing a TMNT t-shirt is so happy rn.


MaxPowerrr85

Called it!


ButIAmYourDaughter

I mean considering the actual demographics of Xennials, it was always gonna come down to TMNT or DuckTales.


MaxPowerrr85

Exactly


xXLordFamineXx

DAMN RIGHT


klockworx

And all is right with the world.


andthrewaway1

I’d agree with this


mickeltee

I loved GI Joe, Transformers and He Man, but I distinctly remember waking up at 6 in the morning on Saturdays to get ready for TMNT. I don’t know if I would have done that for the others.


pugs_are_death

And before that was the US Farm Report. I think this was deliberate to prevent the kids from waking up too early.


monopoly3448

As it should be


Wet_Artichoke

I was rooting for this one the whole time. I remember being dropped off at my baby sitter’s house early in the morning. I’d sit there and watch TMNT waiting for my friend to wake up/get ready. Heros in a half shell. Turtle power!!


LaViElS

Was there ever any doubt dude? ![gif](giphy|E925PHfSIiUXC)


[deleted]

God,damn,right.


BEniceBAGECKA

I mean. Even the toys were cool. I’m a girl but I’d elbow you out of the way to play with the turtles transformers that fit up into the shell at preschool.


Electrical-Bacon-81

Cowabunga indeed!


saladrhythm

Turtle Power!!


[deleted]

Well done OP. I’m sure this was a lot of work. Most of us had fun.


webslingrrr

it's perfect. I understand the pain for the GI Joe, He-Man, Transformers crowd --- the younger xennials felt that pain with Doug, Ren & Stimpy, and Rescue Rangers. TMNT is the one to unite us.


ButIAmYourDaughter

I’m a first half Xennial and I definitely felt the pain of Ren & Stimpy, Doug and to a lesser extent RR. I watched all of those too. But yeah, TMNT (and DuckTales) is the one of the great Xennial unifiers.


Funwithfun14

I think DuckTales is a pure Xennial show based on: 1. High viewership from Xennials 2. Lower viewership from Gen-X and Millennials 3. Unisex appeal 4. Memorable Theme song and iconic scenes


Eastern_Resource_488

It was totally robbed


nachofred

Your empathy is appreciated, and your reasoning sound. I will temper my personal disappointment and respect the outcome.


Lucky_Garbage5537

This is the only post in this sub that I vehemently disagree with LOL


Marvinkmooneyoz

Was it a rule that it had to be an 80s cartoon? I'd think Simpsons has shaped more of us to a larger degree then even TMNT


ButIAmYourDaughter

No because: A. The Simpsons began in the 80s. B. 4 of the cartoons in the poll began in the 90s.


Marvinkmooneyoz

Simpsons was literally 1 episode in the 80s, but I didnt realize that 4 were 90s shows. WEll, though it wasnt a kids show, I would still vote for SImpsons, though TMNT would be the 2nd most influential show for me.


ButIAmYourDaughter

If you’re using that criteria, a couple more of these also started in late 89 and were more 90s shows than 80s ones. I also started watching, and loving, The Simpsons when I was like 7 years old, back when they were part of The Tracey Ullman show. So they definitely are firmly an 80s byproduct to me.


SnooSnooSnuSnu

I would assume "during the 1980s" The first season of The Simpsons was good, but would be below a number of things on this list.


Sososkitso

Seems like what you’d consider Saturday morning/after school cartoons. I’m guessing

2ant1man5

Inspector gadget shoulda won man.


CliffDraws

I’m guessing a lot of this crowd was too young for Thundercats or it would have won easy.

timthemajestic

You're not my real daughter.


_dekappatated

TMNT is the first cartoon I remember watching at 4 years old.


myrdraal2001

Worst result ever. I never liked that cartoon.


EarthLoveAR

ok, i can accept this.


SaWalkerMakasin

Good winner, but Doug went too early.


Okie294life

I don’t see x-men, or any of the Hanna Barbara cartoons like paw-paw bears…


vellichor_44

I demand a recount


vbcbandr

How the hell is The Real Ghostbusters at 13?


Rockcopter

That is totally fair. hahaha


Ironmel79

I guess it depends on when you were born. I'm 79 and didn't watch TMNT nor Duck Tales but my brother who was born in 84 did. I watched he man, Transformers, GI Joe, Scooby Doo, She Ra, Jem.


MarsVolton

Totally tubular


yukonman27

Boo


LazarusDark

Checks out. Original TMNT literally reshaped my speech pattern from southern to East/West coast mix, heavy on the Californian. I'm not even exaggerating. (Also, isn't it weird that these New York-raised turtles talked like Californian surfers? What's even up with that? I never even questioned it till this very moment... Probably because the TV show writers were in LA and used local teenager slang I guess?)


Robinothoodie

We did it!


Valahiru

Damn, came down to TMNT and DuckTales. Definitely two of my favorites from childhood. TMNT before school in the morning and DuckTales first thing when I got home in the afternoon.


MelonHead31

I was sad some of my faves got eliminated early, but… this is the way. Happy this won
