As a child of the 80s and 90s, I have witnessed a massive lack of creativity while some of my favorite cartoons get the reboot treatment. Don’t get me wrong, in some cases this has gone well and I get to relive a childhood moment with a modern flare. Many cases though, this results in some weird mutation that no one wants to touch. On the flip side, there are also some great cartoons from the 80s that never got revisited as a new cartoon. I looked through some of my old favorites and found a modest list of toons that could be put through a reboot, but I think I am happy they didn’t.
Keep in mind I am only talking about cartoons that have been rebooted as a new cartoon series. If I missed something let me know.
I had a few others that I really thought would fit here but they had a cartoon reboot that I was not aware of until I started digging around. Out of each one of these, the only one I would actually like see a reboot of is Zelda, but only if it is done with a more serious tone.
Thank you for reading,

**After note: I wanted to add Captain Planet but I found out it was rebooted as The New Adventures of Captain Planet.
