    I will post our lists here in the comments in a day or two. Don’t want to ruin any potential surprises, just in case anyone didn’t want the full lists spoiled before they had a chance to listen.


    Kelly Reply:

    You can always post the time codes for the picks but not name the picks themselves to make navigating easier!


    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    That would probably take me all day, finding the times of each pick, lol


    ThePreciseClimber Reply:

    So… you gonna post those lists now? 😛


    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    Apologies. I will post them later on, have to record the podcast today first.

    I was thinking of posting my own “Top 10” list, but eh – that would be kind of boring. Instead I’m going to list 11 western shows I remember watching throughout various points of my life that I remember enjoying the most. No particular order!

    Martin Mystery – An enjoyable series that focuses on classic horrors and legends. The three main characters are basically supernatural investigators that work for a Men-in-Black-ish organization. Of course they don’t act like typical Men in Black at all – you have two step-sibling teens (one of them fanboys over anything even remotely supernatural, the other is a massive skeptic) and there’s also a caveman that learned to live in the modern world.

    My one gripe with Martin (the show, not the character), and it’s a preeeeetty big one, is that there isn’t an overarching narrative. At one point it almost seemed like they would introduce one (in Season 2 finale) with the Gatekeeper and how the stinger ending revealed he survived and was about to steal two gadget watches (Martin’s and his boss’), but no. Season 3 seemed to push the restart button and The Gatekeeper was never mentioned again. What a letdown.

    Delta State – one of the few shows I know of that utilizes rotoscopy animation. Actors are recorded and then their movements are translated into animation, frame by frame.

    The story itself was quite interesting – four amnesiacs had to fight the evil Rifters, creatures from another dimension, and restore their memories. Visits to the titular Delta State (the dimension where the Rifters originated from) were always visially appealing.

    Dragon Booster – a show that sadly got cancelled right when they were getting to the good stuff. Season 3 introduced the Shadow Booster and there were teases of another two boosters.

    The way the show is now (with only 3 seasons), there’s really no reason to get into it. Most of the episodes are just their own thing and we’re never going to see the conclusion.

    Time Jam: Valerian & Laureline – Valerian goes on the first time travel mission back to the Middle Ages and in the spur of the moment rescues Laureline from being hanged (or burned, my memory is a bit fuzzy. :P). When he returns to his own time it turns out Earth is missing! Completly gone from the solar system! And of course he can’t go back in time because the Flux Capacitor equivalent got broken.

    Space hijinks (with a tint of mystery) ensue. I found the mystery aspect to be fairly decent (even the inventor of the time travelling devices is involved in it), but I don’t think they had enough episodes focusing on it.

    Fantômette – a fairly typical super hero show (in certain ways similar to Miraculous Ladybug). Another series that got canelled to early, only after one season. And again – the overarching story was just getting started. The final episode revealed the main villain, SIlver Mask, really was somehow involved in the disapperance of the protagonist’s parents.

    Life with Louie – a purely comedic series, but in my opinion one of the best. A cartoon-ified version of Louie Anderson’s childhood.

    Jim Button – my first introduction of the wonderful world of overarching storytelling. The series was a continuous adventure from episode to episode. What definitely helped was the fact it was based on two novels my Michael Ende (of the Neverending Story fame). In Germany the guy is considered the best when it comes to books for kids.

    Oban: Star Racers – a French production inspired by anime. The 26 episodes kind of feel like two 13-episode Netflix seasons. Racers from all over the universe participate in the “Great Race of Oban” competition and the winner is going to become the Avatar. No, not THAT Avatar. 😛

    Here “The Avatar” is basically the god of this universe that’s replaced every 10,000 years.

    The Earth team REALLY needs to win because that’s basically their only chance of winning a war with an alien race. For the time of the competition there’s a ceasefire but once it’s over… and especially if the representative of that alien race becomes the Avatar… humanity would be pretty boned. 😛

    American Dragon Jake Long – Season 2 was really fun with how much plot progression the writers crammed in.

    Dofus: Treasures of Kerubim – a spinoff/prequel thing for Wakfu. No overarching storytelling, just slice-of-life tales of Kerubim, a retired adventurer. Still quite enjoyable, but it’s simply not as ambitious as Wakfu.

    However, Ankama made a movie (Dofus, Book 1: Julith), which takes place after the events of Treasures of Kerubim and that alone made watching all 52 11-min episodes worth it.

    Wakfu (original French version) – simply put, this is currently my favourite western cartoon. It doesn’t go overboard with “standalone adventure” kind of episodes. Each of the first two seasons only has 8 of those (out of 26) – in Season 1 they all happen in the first third, in Season 2 they’re more spread out.
    And even then I still find those kind of episodes to be quite enjoyable.(maybe even more so than a typical episode of shows like Gravity Falls or Star vs. the Forces of Evil)

    Ah, screw it. Here’s my list.

    1. Wakfu
    2. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
    3. Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated
    4. Avatar: The Last Airbender
    5. Life with Louie
    6. Code Lyoko
    7. Dofus: Treasures of Kerubim
    8. Tekkaman Blade
    9. Delta State
    10. Animaniacs

    Honourable mentions:

    The Tick
    The Mysterious Cities of Gold
    Rahan: Son of the Dark Age
    Power Stone
    Gravity Falls (even though I had MASSIVE gripes with this show…)

    One Piece doesn’t really count because I really only read the manga – I just find this story to be more enjoyable in this format. Easier to digest. Also character designs work better for me in a comic book rather than in animation.

    Funny that Kelly criticized the second season of Star vs. the Forces of Evil for not having much plot progression a day before Bon Bon the Birthday Clown aired. (an episode that changed the status quo in various ways)
