ONTD Original: Four nostalgic cartoon shows that deserve the reboot/remake treatment

4. Dungeons and Dragons



Dungeons and Dragons may have been one of those shows that was more popular in Latin America than in the U.S, so bear with me American ONTDers. Based on the role-playing game of the same name, this cartoon followed a group of young friends who find themselves magically transported into the realm of Dungeons and Dragons via a amusement park roller coaster of death (yeah, it didn’t make much sense back then either.) Unfortunately, the series was cancelled before the children ever made it back to their own world, to this day leaving their fans with questions like: was the baby unicorn secretly evil or just annoying? Was Venger actually the hero and the Dungeon Master the villain? Did the kids die in a roller coaster accident and end up in purgatory? Was Eric gay? We may never know, but a remake could answer at least some of those questions.


3. X-Men Evolution



Once upon a time, Marvel used to put out decent cartoons now and then. X-Men Evolution was an early 2000s show following the lives of the young mutants of Professor Xavier’s Academy as they balanced their super hero training with every day typical teen drama like trying to fit. While the show managed to wrap everything up pretty nicely by the last episode, there were talks of an unproduced fifth season that would have reportedly delved into the Dark Phoenix Saga. With the current batch of superhero shows being unremarkable at best, a show like X-Men Evolution has been sorely missed.

2. Yu Yu Hakusho



Listen, if Sailor Moon, Digimon and even Hunter X Hunter have managed to get remakes in the last few years, there’s no reason for Yu Yu Hakusho to not get one as well. This early 90’s anime follows the teenage delinquent Yusuke Urameshi as he’s thrown into a world of demons, the afterlife and dark tournaments. For an anime that ended over twenty years ago, Yu Yu Hakusho holds up very well. Still, fans would love to see this classic with updated animation and exposure to a new fanbase. If any anime deserves a remake, it’s Yu Yu Hakusho.

1. Justice League Unlimited, or alternatively, just bring back the whole damn DCAU



While DC has put out some decent to great shows over the years, like Teen Titans and Young Justice, nothing will ever be able to compete with the perfection that was the DCAU. Justice League Unlimited was the ultimate ensemble cast show, being able to perfectly balance it's characters so that every hero had a chance to shine. And it was hardly the only great DC show at the time, others being the flawless Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond and Static Shock. These were the shows that gave DC the reputation of having a fantastic animation department, and they are dearly missed nowadays.
