List Rules Vote up your favorite animated TV shows that aired in the 1970s

Check out this totally far out list of 70s cartoons! In the 70s, cartoons became more popular than ever. With shows like Looney Tunes and Scooby-Doo, who could resist spending their Saturday morning in front of that colorful 2D picture show? If you feel as strongly about classic television as we do, you should vote for your favorite cartoon so it ends up in the NO. 1 spot on this list. 

Ready for a blast from the past? Remember Schoolhouse Rock!? Well, those catchy and witty jingles obviously landed themselves a spot on this homage list. This educational 1970s cartoon was created by David McCall and premiered in 1973. Some classic songs from this good 1970s cartoon include “Conjunction Junction,” “Electricity, Electricity” and “I'm Just a Bill" (ohh, sweet, sweet nostalgia).

Other good 70s cartoon shows like The Pink Panther Show and The Jackson 5ive also appear on this list of great 1970s cartoons. Looney Tunes was also a popular cartoon of the 1970s, even though most of the episodes were created decades earlier.

Where does your favorite 1970s cartoon show fall on this list? Be sure to vote it to the top spot and share your thoughts in the comments section!
