Inspiration: TV cartoons

Group Description

Games directly inspired from cartoon shows aired on television. This includes American-made cartoons, European animation, and Asian anime. In cases where multiple media exist for a title name, the game has to be directly influenced by the events/storyline/style of the TV cartoon series for it to be included in this group.

Limitations
  • There have been a lot of cartoon shows based-off of other material; including books, comics, manga, TV series, movies or other adaptations. For the purposes of this game group, the content in the game must directly reference likeness, characters, and situations as they are depicted in the cartoon show. Usually an official license.
Additional Note
As aforementioned, please note many popular TV cartoons may not have been originally a TV cartoon, but based on various adaptations. Please research the background of a title in mention before submitting a title here and mention justification/source when submitting. Thank you.
