All the Warner Brother's stable of 'toons.

For some reason, Popeye, in every iteration from 1933 to 1962

And the Japanese import "8th Man"

(With all the engineers and tech people here I'm a little surprised this one hasn't been mentioned yet)

Oh yes! The cartoons from "NTA" or whatever the closing credits used to say. There was also a cat and a goose team. The Goose was an Ed Wynn knock-off and the cat was a sort of Jimmy Durante knock-off.

Now I'm gonna be up all g/d night trying to come up with the names

I should clarify that when I said Rocky & Bullwinkle, I meant their whole family of features:
Rocky & Bullwinkle (often versus Boris, Natasha and Fearless Leader)
Fractured Fairy Tales (narrated by Hans Conried)
Peabody's Improbable History (with Sherman and the Wayback Machine)
Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties
Mr. Know-It-All
Aesop & Son

The cool thing about this show is that they were so full of inside jokes aimed at grownups that people of any age could enjoy them.

There was Snuffles the Floating Dog, he was cool. Points at his mouth, gets a treat, and floats up on his back.

Yep. I think that's them. Didn't see them too much. They were not over-exposed cartoon actors....haha. But they made me laugh.

Thanks!

I remember a religious cartoon that was on the Lutheran channel on Sunday, Davy and Goliath. Also some cartoon with a square jawed man--Chuck Connors look alike--and young boy?

I grew up in Chicagoland where so many of these cartoons came on the Frazier Thomas after school show, in between the antics of bunny rabbit.

Very True. I remember when Boris decided not to shoot up the US Congress with 'Goof Gas' because "somebody already has".

I always looked forward to Space Ghost and Speed Racer for some reason.

A bit later, I enjoyed Battle of the Planets even through it was probably targeted toward a younger audience. A bunch of us used to watch it after school.

Not sure these are any more favorite than the ones already mentioned, just different.

I didn't watch many cartoons but I do recall watching the Jetsons and The Flintstones on occasions.

Yes, and they weren't the only ones. Other cartoon series also had the occasional grownup humor (some even a bit risqué) woven in so discretely that I remained clueless until catching reruns as a full-fledged adult. I'm reminded of one particular episode of the roadrunner & Wile E. Coyote.

All the classic Warner Brothers cartoons (Bugs, Daffy, Roadrunner, etc)

Rocky, Bullwinkle, and the rest of the Jay Ward bunch.

Not really a cartoon, but I really liked the "Supermarionation" of the Thunderbirds.

I never caught the Thunderbirds but my younger brother and I were regular watchers of its predecessor, Steve Zodiac and the Fireball XL5.
