List Rules Vote up your fave animated shows that you'd love to see end up on the big screen.
Children of '80s and early '90s spent a lot of Saturday mornings watching cartoons: from funny cartoons to anime, they took in the modern cartoons as well as reruns of some of the amazing cartoons from the '60s and '70s. They watched the best cartoons and the worst cartoons. As long as it was animated and intended to be fun for kids, they watched it. Over time, a lot of the greats have been made into feature length films (some good, some bad), but there are still a wealth of titles that have yet to be given the feature film treatment and that is a missed opportunity.
You may have asked yourself before: which kids cartoons should be adapted for the big screen? Nostalgic fans of the cartoons of the '60s through the '90s would certainly flock to theaters to see big-screen adaptations of the titles they grew up watching every weekend. Whether the adaptation is live action like the Transformers movie or animated like The Jetsons movie, nostalgia buffs don't necessarily care (as long as it is done right).
With all of that said: it's safe to say that cartoon buffs are anxious to see some of the classic cartoons of yesteryear adapted for the big screen. Here are fifteen picks for kids cartoons that should be made into movies.
Yakko, Wakko, and Dot were such clever characters and a testament to the creativity that went in to the cartoons of years past. An animated adaptation of this '90s series geared for the big screen would be a welcome sight for an entire generation that grew up watching this whacky trio!
One of the most cosplayed characters of all time, Sailor Moon and her cohorts are an obvious choice to make the leap to the big screen. Fans of the classic cartoon would undoubtedly be lined up around the block to get tickets for a "Sailor Moon" film. "Sailor Moon" could probably work as a live-action adaptation or a cartoon, but many of the fans are partial to the anime-style animations of the cartoon series.
Space Ghost is an epic and hilarious character that first appeared in the '60s and then resurfaced in the '90s on "Space Ghost: Coast to Coast." Space Ghost would be perfect for a live-action feature film or an animated feature. A live action feature would likely bring a bigger box office yield, but fans of the wisecracking Space Ghost will take him however they can get him!
This comic book series turned cartoon enjoyed a short lived live-action television series but "The Tick" still has not been given the feature-film treatment. Tick fans would love to see Patrick Warburton reprise his role as The Tick (from the live-action TV series) in a major feature film exploring the exploits of this bumbling superhero and his sidekick Arthur.
