With DuckTales Remastered coming out soon, I started to reminisce about the Disney cartoon shows I used to watch as a kid.  

What are/were your favorite Disney television cartoons?

I LOVED DuckTales. Rescue Rangers was cool too, but I liked DuckTales more. I didn't get into TaleSpin or Darkwing Duck as much, but DD's catch phrases were awesome. "I am the terror that flaps in the night." And I still say "let's get dangerous" in my vernacular.

Gummi Bears rocked and I'm a HUGE Winnie the Pooh fan and loved New Adventures. 

Among the new-school (2000 and beyond) Disney cartoons I enjoyed Kim Possible and Dave The Barbarian.

But nothing can ever top Gargoyles. Not only was it Disney's best televised cartoons, but it's one of the best televised cartoons of all time. To this day, it still broke new ground. How many other cartoons can you think of that have a multi-ethnic female protagonist? (Elisa Maza in Gargoyles was half black, half native American.) I still want the rest of season 2 on DVD or Blu-Ray, dammit!

Ducktales was great. Darkwing Duck was great. I don't remember much of Gargoyles besides I loved it.

Gargoyles was made by Disney?

Put my vote for that (except the last season...)

I always liked the duality in Demona and Xanatos as they're not really villains, nor are they really good guys.

I like all of what Dincrest has been mentioned. I also loved watching Hercules: The Animated series and Aladdin, cliche though they were. My favourite recent disney show would have to be The Emperors New Groove though. Really like the humour in it.

You referring to the multinational globetrotting fest where Goliath, his daughter, the Gargoyle Dog, and Elise are all stuck on a boat ending up literally god knows where every episode for an entire season? Because there were some fun episodes in there but by god did it go total "It's a Small World After All.". Thank god that a goodly chunk of those episodes swung around and tied back into what was going on with the core group, even if it involved checking up on old foes (actually most of the recurring foes on this show had some kind of duality going on with them), getting rid of some of those pesky magical artifacts left lying around, or the Manhattan crew getting visited by some of the more incidental characters like Griff and Arthur.

Also between Dincrest and Darilon pretty much all of my Disney cartoon viewing experiences have been covered except for Goof Troop and Quack Attack. Both of which are unfortunately a product of its time (even if Goof Troop led to that SuperNES game and A Goofy Movie getting made).

Do you mean Quack Pack?  Because that show was great!  DuckTales was my favorite Disney cartoon (watched it in a block with Darkwing Duck, TailSpin, and I think Gummi Bears?) but Goof Troop and Quack Pack were worthy late successors.  I still preferred the WB cartoons (Animaniacs, Batman TAS, Superman TAS), but Disney Afternoon had some quality in it.

Nope, the one after. It was bad enough that the show got canned.

Darkwing Duck. Best intro in a cartoon short of 1996 Iron Man.

Yes, that.

Also throwing Timone and Pumba a bone.

I was really into duck tales, tale spin, gummi bears, and rescue rangers.  I own the duck tale game and the rescue ranger game.  Here is an odd confession to make: when I was a kid, I was convinced I was going to marry Chip.  I think it was the hat, aviator jacket, or the fact he was so responsible.   

I also liked Pepper Ann and loved Fillmore .

My nephew has no attention span and loves to watch things on the computer, this has led me to watching cartoon openings with him. The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh has such a good intro and makes me super nostalgic. Same with Gummi Bears. Gargoyles is a great show that I really need to rewatch.

I second your nomination of Fillmore Clueless, that was a fine detective show. Unfortunately, you are clearly insane - Pepper Ann was awful.

Aww.  It wasn't that bad, though it clearly is the red headed stepchild of the bunch.

I liked the Aladdin show but I think that's cause I fancied Aladdin as a kid?

Recess was Disney, right? I loved that show.

I liked Aladdin too.

I liked Recess till recently when I found out the woman who voice Spinelli was a regular on Californication who waxes buttholes and was doing coke and screwing the guy who sang 'Jesse's Girl' (Rick Springfield?).
