Cartoons you'd like to see remade?

I think there was also a He-man cartoon in the early 2000s as well. A lot of the shows that sold toys have all been done again. TMNT, Batman and Spider-man seem to constantly be remade.

I loved the He-Man remake in 2002. Right now there's a She-Ra reboot on Netflix that many people love. 

Transformers is another one constantly being remade or continued. There's like 2 or 3 series that were strictly shown in Japan that aside from ignoring the 3 episodes of season 4 directly continue from the G1 series.

Then there was Beast Wars, as much as I loved the original cartoon I could never get into it except for a few episodes that directly relate to the the G1 cartoon. 

Then a bunch of other Transformers series I never got into until Transfrmers: Prime. I liked that one.

It often feels like there's at least 2versions of transformers on at any given time.

Sadly i missed most of beast wars/war machines as it was only shown in 10 minute indtsllments during holidays in UK. When i got access to it on sky beast machines was ending but those last few episodes were pretty epic. On the whole the mainframe shows were pretty good and they told stories not just aimed at pre-teens or at the least didn't treat them like idiots

Darkwing motherfucking Duck.

Next logical step after the Ducktales reboot. Honestly, couldn’t particularly get into the original series but the reboot just wowed me.

I wouldn't mind some gi joe or mask remade, but it would depend on the animation.  The animation is what has always turned me off of all the transformers after the original.

Not sure that I need to see these remade or just released somewhere where I can watch them again:

Spiral Zone

Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers

 

Starblazers, on the other hand, I would welcome a remake. This was a hallmark of my childhood.  Got to see a few episodes a couple of years ago and it did not hold up.

Holy shit that was bad! Though looking at the numpty with the top knot they had talking about it, perhaps not surprising. 100k dislikes, haha.

The “Teen Titans Go” thing of taking decent cartoons and turning them into fart joke stories really needs to stop.

Pirates of Dark Water is one of those great/frustrating shows (of course, I haven't seen it since the 90s either, so yeah, it could be crap). 

But it's a show built on finding 13(?) items. The show "ends" when they find the items, so we get bloated episodes of them finding nothing. I feel like this was a specific formula in the 80s and 90s. Now, I think it'd be fine because it'd be Season 1: Find 13 items, Season 2: Realize a bigger, worse thing is out there, Season: Etc.

IMHO, Pirates of Dark Water was the proto-Avatar the Last Airbender that featured an animated cast of non-white characters on a linear quest to save the world. (Also I loved the weird-fantasy Filipino/Austronesian aesthetic.) Avatar the Last Airbender was built around three seasons for Aang to learn three elements and then defeat Firelord Ozai within a year. I think building a show around finding the 13 lost Treasures of Rul to defeat the Dark Dweller is okay, though it could also be structured around the restoration of Octopon. And just because you find the treasures doesn't mean you know what to do with them. And much as Aang had to learn how to be the Avatar while helping others in his travels, Ren could be learning what it means to be the King of Octopon, or even the imperfections of King Primus or how Octopon was not necessarily the Utopian gem it was imagined to be.
 

My list shows have already been mentioned, and it is dominated by Science-Fantasy:
* Pirates of Dark Water
* Thundarr the Barbarian
* Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light
* ReBoot
* War Planets / Shadow Raiders
* He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: I loved the 2002 reboot, but it needs another shot. Maybe it will be a spin-off of the new She-Ra?

Although I am not really a fan of any of the remakes mentioned so far, there were a few cartoons from my childhood that stuck with me and I can imagine working for a mixed age audience.
 

  • Ulysses 31 - A wierd mix of french and japanese (I think) writing and aesthetic, it was wonderfully haunting and odd. It was also quite terrifying, and stood out due to its sense of melancholy and lack of hope. I would hope that it wouldn't go down a straight Anime route thought
  • Dogtanian and the 3 Muskehounds - Again its a classic tale.. but with dogs. There are tons of remakes of this story, sometimes classic, sometimes steampunk'd, but this is still my fave. 
  • Dungeons & Dragons - I absolutely loved this as a kid, but part of me was always confused as to how it related to the game I heard so much about. Why not do a version that isn't just a bunch of kids thrown into a weird world from a rollercoaster. Do it properly. Thats what I wanted when I was younger, and maybe we could get it.

Teen Titans Go is amazing.  The episode where bees are used as currency should have won awards.

Darkwing Duck needs more love. 

And an oddball, i would like to see Bravestarr redone with native writers.

I was NOT down with the change from the old Titans show to Teen Titans Go when it happened...but time and distance and a couple kids now in the age range for the show have me watching it and it's actually really really sharp.  The movie this summer was really good.  Yeah, it's kinda lowbrow, but then it isn't...

 

And let's get a remake of the vehicles versuon of Voltron...

Native to the planet, new texas, far deep in space? They could include a horse whisperer too. But i imagine the native American influenced themes of the show are a bit cringe worthy now. 

They could do a sequel where white europeans have now settled there in greater number and are systematically displacing the original inhabitants.

Saying Teen Titans Go is just fart jokes shows you have never seen an episode of Teen Titans Go.

I have seen it. It’s cute.  It’s campy.  I dislike it for the same reason I dislike the Adam West and Joel Shoemake Batman iterations.  Not my thing.  

I also don’t want to see “Star Blazers, BOOM!” or “Macross, ZAP!” or “G.I. YO!” done in the same kiddie style animation as “Teen Titans, Go!”.

In these troubling times we need a reboot of Captain Planet and the Planeteers.

I didn't get to see all of it but the overall mythology of the series was truly stunning.  

I will say that I thought that Doc was misplaced in the overall story.

Among those already mentioned: GargoylesReBoot, Pirates of Dark Water and Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers (actually I wouldn't mind seeing the latter in a live-action format)

BattleTech - didn't see many episodes, but it was cooooool!!!

I wouldn't mind another version of Jonny Quest.

Then don't try G.I.Joe Renegades the animation is very off putting. It's a shame though because the story is excellent. It follows a select group of Joes around (Duke, Scarlett, Snake Eyes, Roadblock, and Tunnel Rat) meeting up with other familiar Joes and COBRAs each episode, charged with crimes they didn't commit as they try to gather evidence t prove their innocence and expose the real culprits (Cobra Industries, a nefarious organization with a legitimate Walmart-like facade so everybody loves them- headed by Adam DeCobray [Cobra Commander] and his underlings).

Imagine an animated G.I.Joe/A-Team/The Fugitive hybrid with ugly character designs.
