The best animated shows for female characters

“Over the years, animated shows have been able to give us solid proof that cartoons made by women, and cartoons made for women (and girls) can be successful. Here are just some of the extremely positive representations of women in different cartoon shows and franchises.”

VIDEO: Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue (1990)

It’s a mega Saturday morning crossover as Bugs Bunny, the Smurfs, Baby Kermit, Slimer, Winnie the Pooh, Garfield, ALF, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (singular) team up to tell you that drugs are bad. This is your brain after watching your favorite cartoon characters turn into major narcs!

VIDEO: The Batman “Q&A”

“In this episode, Ryan covers The Batman, a lighter, younger, more merchandise-oriented incarnation of the Caped Crusader, featuring vastly ‘reimagined’ versions of Batman’s villains. In the season one episode ‘Q&A’, Batman faces off against the Cluemaster, a subpar Riddler clone who’s been redesigned to be even more useless than he was in the comics.”

VIDEO: Spider-Man “Rocket Racer”

“Hey, kids, remember when Ryan wrote about ‘The Spot’, the second-worst episode of Spider-Man, the cartoon that ran on FOX Kids back in the ‘90s? Well, you’re in luck, because this time around, he looks at the worst episode of the series, ‘Rocket Racer’!“In it, a whiny kid gets his hands on a rocket-powered skateboard and decides to turn to a life of crime, but ends up being too much of a pussy to follow through on it. Eventually, he helps Spider-Man defeat his lamest villain ever, a guy riding around in a giant wheel. Featuring the voices of big names like Mark Hamill, Telma Hopkins, and, um, C.B. Barnes, ‘Rocket Racer’ is an episode you won’t forget… for at least two, maybe three minutes.”

VIDEO: Transformers “The Girl Who Loved Powerglide”

“We here at the Agony Booth don’t know for certain if a girl can really love a robot, or how physical congress between the two might actually transpire. But clearly, the Transformers writers never lost much sleep over questions such as these, giving us one of the most bizarre episodes of the show’s run. Watch the video and be disturbed.”
