If this forum sticks around it needs a custom icon on the home page. So what character/icon should be used here? Give me some good ideas, I'll make mock-ups [or you can make them, I won't complain ^_^] and we'll run a poll to decide which one gets the job.

The Superman symbol. Or the symbol of the water tribe from the last airbender.

What are some fairly iconic western cartoons that appeal to a slightly order audience? Avatar? Adventure Time? Family Guy? The Simpsons? Batman the Animated Series? Spongebob?

Also, consider this a negative vote against anything MLP related.

12-10-2011, 12:29 AM
Well It's about western animation....Like Xero said, What's the most infamous icon to be associated with Western Animation? Looney Tunes, Transformers, Spongebob, Ren & Stimpy, Invader Zim, Superman, Batman, Charlie Brown, Ben 10, Family Guy?
What about Clay-mation stuff?

Let's not forget about European Animation as well.

This would have to be superman I believe. ( atleast ) he has been popular within American culture for a very long time and stays that way to this day and in the future more than likely.

12-10-2011, 06:23 AM
I'd have to vote for Invader ZIIIIIIIIM!!! O_o

As for actual old, easily recognisiable and memorable American animations ... being British, everything is 5 years behind so my opinion may well be moot >_> I'll have to think of something, because derp.

But otherwise, ZIIIIIIIIIIM!!!

Honestly I am more leaning towards Looney Tunes Bugs Bunny/Daffy/Tom & Jerry or maybe even something from Who Framed Roger Rabbit. My problem with say Batman or Superman is that they aren't primarily cartoons, the live action shows are at least as well known and came first in many cases. Transformers is partly (or actually in some cases) anime, so wouldn't stand out as much. Zim or Spongebob are good options as well. I'd skip over Adventure Time and MLP both because they are too new, and over Avatar because it wants to be anime a bit too much, so it can't have nice things. Charlie Brown makes me think of newspaper comics more then cartoons, and I'd shy away from Simpsons/Futurama or Family Guy, they'd feel way too specific.

These comments shouldn't be taken to mean I dislike any of the shows mentioned, I've actually enjoyed most of them, and will again, just thinking more about what would best represent this section

12-10-2011, 09:10 AM
I'd put my vote in for Invader Zim.

12-10-2011, 09:14 AM
Looney toons.... Road runner..... animaniacs.. I'd prefer something like that.

Or the following classic icons...



12-10-2011, 09:19 AM
I don't get it. What costum icon?

But even if I don't really understand what you are asking for (???) I'll say
Axis Powers Hetalia and Pokemon.

12-10-2011, 09:29 AM

One of the characthers from Avatar, since so many thinks it`s anime :P

12-10-2011, 11:29 AM
I'd suggest something from the early years of American Animation, Mickey Mouse from Steamboat Willie, or something from My Old Kentucky Home, even Felix the Cat.
Stuff from the Mid 1920's that pretty much started/inspired tons of animation throughout the world.

I'd veto Mickey, even the Steamboat Willie version because Disney has rabid lawyers on hand o_o; Felix the Cat is not a bad idea either however.

12-10-2011, 12:34 PM
Spongebob came first to mind. Good old Mickey would do too.

12-10-2011, 12:55 PM
Tom & Jerry?

That's really the only old western animated cartoon that comes to mind that I haven't seen already mentioned. I say "haven't seen" but I may well have missed it in my little skimming of this thread o_o; or I'm just being paranoid.

Definitely paranoid.

So.... if not that, then ZIIIIIIM! because that's all I can think of.

Or maybe me. 55059

I think Cosmo from Fairly Oddparents should be picked!~ He's
a well known character and holds a certain humor about him!~

12-10-2011, 06:47 PM

I approve of that ^^

12-10-2011, 10:28 PM
I'll also add by support to Cosmo being the icon.

12-10-2011, 11:28 PM
Cosmo would work too :D.

Kaitou Ace
12-10-2011, 11:33 PM
Cosmo can definitely work. And Aku no Hikari, I'll be adding those two to the speakies in the morning

12-11-2011, 02:52 AM
I also like Cosmo. Although, I must say that I also like Anti-Cosmo.:cool:


12-11-2011, 09:33 AM
animeyay - Too bad the icon would be too small to have them both... >w<
However I am talentless in creating graphics. So if somebody would be willing to create
a little cosmo icon.

I'd totes buy them cookiez 4 life~
