Favorite cartoon while growing up

What was your favorite cartoon(s) that you watched while growing up?
I always liked the Flintstones.

Looney Tunes. In fact, my wife has bought me all of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVDs and I still enjoy them.

As a kid I would say the Looney Tunes also. Although I was never a real big cartoon watcher.

As older I liked The Far Side or Dilbert.

Well some do, sort of... When DD and family got their new Roomba, they decided to name it (her) Rosie.

The ones that come to mind are the Flintstones, the Jetsons, Looney Tunes and Yogi Bear. But Yogi doesn't seem to make any lists? Most Popular TV Shows for animation and 1960-1969 - TV.com

For years people have denied his existence! I swear at least 20 people have told me no such rabbit. I was thinking it was a regional thing.
