1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
    This is the first show I can genuinely say I was obsessed with. I never missed a single episode. This was one of the shows that showed me girls can do anything guys do as well if not better.
  2. Angel
    Obviously this is related to Buffy but again one of the first obsessions
  3. Xena Warrior Princess
    This was it for me. This show was the one show that taught me to fight as hard as any man for the people I care about. Also ( though i didn't know it ) the first instance of a kickass bisexual woman.
  4. The Powerpuff Girls
    There will be a good list of cartoons on this list so bare with me. This show was the first on a long list of Cartoon Network shows. Buttercup was the first little girl I related too. She was a tomboy and damnit she was grumpy like I was.
  5. Yu Yu Hakusho
    Giphy downsized medium
    This was my gateway anime. I loved everything about anime once I started. I loved how beautifully it was drawn and then animated. Pretty soon I was watching more and then even started reading manga.
  6. Kim Possible
    Teenage girl becomes super spy. Teenage girl kicks ass. Shy nerdy best friend helps her save day from safety of his home. Best friend turns love interest and hapless sidekick. KICK ASS PET. what more is there to love?
  7. Samurai Jack
    I can admit that the first reason I liked this show was the art style. It was just so differently drawn then the other anime that I was watching at the time like DBZ and Yu Yu Hakusho.
  8. Avatar: The Last Airbender
    I just loved this show for so many reasons. As fun and kiddie as the show was, it had its deep moments. Deeper than you'd expect for a kids show. Darker too sometimes.
  9. The Proud Family
    The first cartoon I watched that all the characters were POC. That's it. A show about a black teenage girl and her friends and family.
  10. The Legend of Korra
    Sort of sequel to ATLA, Korra was a great great follow up show. The themes went darker and the writers built on the world they'd already created in such new and interesting ways. Adding on of powers and then using flashbacks to show how the cast of ATLA helped build the world that Korra and her friends live in.
