Favorite episode of any childhood tv show

For me, the answer is simple. Idiot Box from spongebob.

I don't think I could pick just one! I used to always watch The Fairly Odd Parents and Spongebob; they were all so good!

Here's one that sticks out for me and many people!

Besides the awesomeness of that, the episode had a great message and was just good fun!

My favorite episode of Spongebob is Krusty Krab Training Video. It isn't really from my childhood though, more my teen-years.

When it comes to childhood cartoons, I grew up on Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and, The Simpsons. From the first, my favorite episode of Invader Zim is 'Zim Eats Waffles' (close second is Angry Beavers wherein they stay up all night). From Cartoon Network: Top Cat, any episode because Top Cat is fucking awesome. As for The Simpsons, I really liked the episode where Bart and Lisa write Itchy and Scratchy cartoons under their Grandpa's name.

My favorite episode of MegasXLR was "All i wanted was a slushie"

I just love the over the top use of the typical MegasXLR humor and action. Plus the nature of the villain was kinda cool and clever.

Also for ed, edd, n Eddy was the one where they try to spy on Kevin, ill post the url to the moment that specified as to why i love that show later.

This episode of Justice League Unlimited stands out in my mind:

And Then There Was Shawn.

Hands down. Boy Meets World meets Scream/Scary Movie. Absolute perfection. Go youtube it right now.

(close second is Angry Beavers wherein they stay up all night)

God, I need to binge Angry Beavers at some stage. All the way through.

So ironically, when I get to the all nighter episode, I myself will be pulling an all nighter. I look forward to how that precise moment will feel.

Probably RECYCLE episode of Rocko's modern life. Show was always freaking bizzare, but that episode just nailed it!

MegasXLR

Didn't get to see that till my mid/late teens, so I was always more partial to the Bruce Cambell episodes. But that whole series is pretty much gold.

OT: Probably have to go with The tale of X9, from Samurai Jack. Go watch it, its quite good.

That one Rocko's Modern Life ep where Rocko goes to get his driver's license and everybody keeps telling him to watch out for "the fat guy". Don't know the title.

The episode of David The Gnome where after being accused of being a tad disagreeable, David exclaims "I am not a grumpy bear!"

That's always stuck with me.

"Don't get the fat guy!"

That was it. I think it's the same ep with the wild pig scene. Rocko's taking a class or something about driving and...

Hmm, this is pretty hard. From Hey Arnold, there are two episodes that stand out. One is a Christmas Special where Arnold tries to get Mr.Winn the perfect present: his daughter who is somewhere in the city. The ending of that episode where Helga is standing out of Arnold's place, with none of the main characters aware of how much she helped, and all she says is "Merry Christmas Arnold". My older sister saw that, and remarked that Helga "Looked like an Angel". Don't know why, but that always stuck with me.

The other episode is Helga on the Couch, where Helga goes to see a shrink. It really brought her character into focus, and the whole time she is describing her first (? I think?) day of preschool was just so terribly depressing. I always sort of liked the fact that Helga finally had someone that she could talk to about her emotions, and actually looked forward to seeing the shrink more often.

As a Runner Up, I submit any episode of the Rugrats where the story constantly switches between what the kids were doing, and what they were seeing in their imagination.

Oh, and Epilogue from Justice League Unlimited. Tied everything it needed to tie up, and made Batman Beyond particularly relevant in the whole DCAU.

That episode of Ed, Edd n' Eddy in which the Eds are nowhere to be found, the rest of the Cul-de-sac kids start to get increasingly paranoid, positive that they are preparing to ambush them with a scam, they find clues, eventually leading them to a monkey-themed park. The other kids start to make use of the rides, while Kevin remains paranoid, sure the Eds will spring on them and steal their cash or otherwise cause them misfortune. Basically, the rest of the neighbour kids get stuck or trapped in humourous ways and Kevin flees.

The final reveal is pretty funny. I won't give that away. But it's a great episode, the effects the eds have on Kevin's psyche is hilarious, and the over-the-top delivery really just MAKES this episode for me.

Oh, and nice avatar, OP. I approve.

EDIT: Oh, or the haunted house episode and the one where Double D gets "sick"!

Corking show, bought the DVD lately.

I always had a soft spot for Noggin the Nog. Very very charming stuff - the Ice Dragon in particular was one of my favourites. All of the Spongebob episodes linked were great too. Tricky stuff to call.

Thank you, I do enjoy Timesplitters. If you already don't know about it, check out this link. Has a lot of great maps to make for that series (provided you still play). http://s7.zetaboards.com/Rec_Room/index/

OT: My favorite episode out of anything the DCAU had was from the original Justice League. Episode: StarCrossed.

Watch from 3:30 on for possibly some of the best action moments in the series. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xp8gyu_starcrossed-5-of-6_shortfilms#.UaFdrUA-Y7c

For me it's a tie between the episode of ReBoot where Bob gets launched into The Net by Megabyte, or the episode of Beast Wars where Megatron manages to trick Optimus into killing himself.

Mostly I remember these episodes because holy shit not only did the bad guys win, but until following episodes they had effectively won decisively. That blew my mind as a kid.

I do still play. As a matter of fact I was playing it on my emulator just this evening! I was making my own story map and attempting those frustrating-as-hell challenges where basically you break stuff. I'll check out that link. Can't wait for Rewind!

The first episode of Pokémon. I think I got into the cards before the show began its run here, not sure though. One way or another I knew the show was coming, and I was pretty damn excited for it. And then, when the day came, I had to go visit my grandparents. I wasn't happy about it.

I first saw the episode much, MUCH later, when a friend got it on VHS, and it was glorious!

"Thought you didn't like to play the hero?"

"Doesn't mean I don't know how."

There are probably others that I like more but that's what I got right now.

Thomas the Tank Engine: Either Escape, Flying Kippur, or All at Sea.


And for TUGS, definitely Quarantine.

The one episode from my childhood that always stands out in my mind is when dragon ball and Dr.Slum had a cross over when i was a kid i was so happy

The Wallace and Gromitt episode with the evil penguin.

Sometimes the shows which have only small amounts of dialogue are the best, since they focus more on funny events.

Transformers G1- The episode when the first three Dionbot member were introduce since that episode brought about my favourite Transformers, Grimlock!

Looney Tunes - Oh, so much to choose from. For the moment, I think I'll pick Robin Hood Daffy.


"Ho! Haha! Guard! Turn! Parry! Dodge! Spin! Ha! Thrust!"
They absolutely perfected slapstick. Timeless.

Although, if we go into my later childhood, then we'd get to Avatar, which is still firmly on my top 10 list of all shows, maybe top 5. For that... Yikes, which episode was best? I think I'd probably pick the end of Book One - Siege of the Northern Water Tribe. Excellent music, character development, plot resolution, and they do some really effective and subtle stuff with the colour palette late in the episode that you probably don't notice the first time you watch it.

Damn, when will they announce the air date for Book 2 of Korra?

Teen Titans gets mixed feelings on this site, but I remember it fondly. The pseudo-anime style suited the mood(s) they were going for.

I actually watched that a couple of weeks ago. It was one of the trippier things I've seen lately. It also lasted 2-3 episodes.

I have two that spring to mind. The first is from Courage the cowardly dog and the episode is Freaky Fred and the other is The Grim adventures of Billy and Mandy and the part is Little rock of horrors as it had Voltaire singing Brains!. I also love the first season of Pokemon. The theme song brings back many fond memories.

I'm honestly surprised no one's mentioned the Johnny Bravo and Scooby Doo crossover episode.


I don't think I'll ever stop finding this joke funny. I think this might have been the first crossover of anything I'd seen too, so it was pretty darn cool at the time.

My Glasses i cant be seen with out my glasses! best line

Ed Edd and Eddy in the 'haunted' house. One episode that perfectly captures every characters, the world and its insanity. Easily some of Eds best confused lines.

For Johnny Bravo as awesome as the Scooby Doo crossover was I'd have to say where he runs to the toystore to buy something just to impress a little girls older sister. The ending was pure Bravo!

I was having trouble thinking of one, then I read that and the REGIS Mk V quotes hit my brain like a truck. "Do not panic. You will all die."

There are heaps, but I can't remember any of the names of the episodes since it's been awhile so just what I can find. Except I won't be throwing in The Simpsons and South Park because everyone who liked those shows has seen them all.

Popeye vs Sinbad. They called it a mini movie since it went a little longer than the average episode. I reckon this is the best of the series. Enjoy.

Finally found one... kinda. I could only find this weird vid with a little bit of the episode in it. This one Pokemon episode where this bitch kept going on about how all Pokemon matches could be predicted through a game machine thing they made and you just wanted to her to get her cu-muffins. One of the better episodes even though I'm no fan now.

Punky Brewster, episode: The Perils of Punky.

Watch this, and remember - this is for kids.

Sweet Jesus what were they thinking?

Coming up next on "Dora the Explorer: I Spit On Your Grave Edition" ...

EDIT: In case you were wondering, I'm a paranoid survivalist loon these days.

I blame Punky.

PUNKY

PUNNKKYYYYYY

Episode 21 of Digimon Adventure - Directed by Mamoru Hasoda who directed Summer Wars and The Girl Who Lept Through Time, this episode is very different to the episodes that came beore it. Essentially Tai is transported back to the real world and realised nothing as changed, he has to go back and help his friends but he wants to stay with his sister. Although that plot does not sound like much, the art direction is drastically different and has a washed out tone which complements the melancholic tone of the episode. One of my favourites.
