I had the pilot movie VHS of The Mighty Ducks, and remember watching it quite a few times, although watching actual episodes of the show was pretty disappointing. That still had better memories for me than Loonatics, so it wins by default.

Even though I've never seen it, I'll go with Mighty Ducks. It's just so ridiculously over the top. A hockey team of ducks who are also crime fighters is just so 90's that I kind of love it.

I've seen Loonatics Unleashed and I don't think it was particularly good. I thought that the promos for it looked cool initially, but I don't remember liking the show. I think it was just trying too hard to make classic Looney Tunes characters look cool and hip for the kids, so that just turned me off.

I forgot to comment on the last match:

I actually like both Mighty Ducks and Loonatics Unleashed. I think Loonatics Unleashed takes itself just a tiny bit too seriously, whereas Mighty Ducks.....well, it didn't consider itself a witty satire (like "Darkwing Duck"), but it....I dunno, it realized it was the mid 90's and acted accordingly. I don't know how to explain it.

Meanwhile, in today's match: "The PJs" is actually Disney's first "adult" animated TV show! I'm not sure how it came to end up airing on FOX, but it was the late 90's....

On the other hand, "Mike Tyson Mysteries" is Warner Bros. Animation's first "Adult Swim" animated TV show.

So yeah, it's a battle of "adult" animated shows, Disney vs. Warner Bros. style!

Never watched The PJs and only watched very little of Mike Tyson Mysteries, but I'll vote for the latter since it seems like a pretty fun premise.

Mike Tyson Mysteries isn't just my vote of choice, but definitely what I recommend you give a fair watch or two someday, if you can, of course.

The PJs is a show that deserves to be forgotten for being such a waste of something truly unique like Claymation, IMHO.

I'll give The PJs a vote. I remember watching a little bit of it back in the day, but I'd be lying if that counts as an endorsement. I just haven't seen Mike Tyson Mysteries, and I'm not really jazzed to, although I like the idea of the show. I just wish it starred Dennis Rodman or someone else instead.

I guess I'll vote for Mike Tyson Mysteries. I've only seen bits of it, but it was funny. Although, I also wish that it starred someone else instead of Mike Tyson since that's a big reason why I don't want to watch more of it.

I barely remember the PJs, but it was pretty bad and forgettable from what I can recall of it.

My vote goes to The Lion King's Timon and Pumbaa. It's a great show, not much people mention it when they're talking of Disney Afternoon shows.

I remember liking Krypto the Superdog when it was on, but don't really remember much about that show.

Marge Simpson is trending on Twitter. I won't say why, though.
I wonder if the mid 30's Fleischer cartoons with the 3d backgrounds with 2d characters was an inspiration for Paper Mario

Here's a teaser that announces Mulan (2020) coming to Disney+ next month .
Given how Jason J. Lewis loves Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm, he must've been really excited getting to work with Kevin Conroy on Justice League Action.

I decided to cancel my Boomerang subscription. The App didn't have a feature to save shows to watch later, it felt bare bones, and not really worth the price. I just hope more of the content would move over to HBO Max.
