I don’t know what it is about cartoons set in outer space that just sent me into a tizzy of energy between the ages of 8 and, oh, I don’t know, now. I’m sure it stems from my lifelong love of Star Wars, but anything Space Opera-related is going to get at least a few watches out of me. Here, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite action cartoons set in space. I’m leaving off The Clone Wars because obviously that’s awesome, and I’m also leaving off Futurama because it changes genre so much. Everything else is up for grabs, so here we go!10. Mobile Suit GundamBebop! Y’all forgot about Bebop! This show was part Film Noir, part Western, but all spacey. One of the best anime series of all time, each of the characters are memorable, likable, and heartbreaking in their own way. The Bebop is one of the coolest spaceships in all of sci-fi, and Spike and Faye each have their own very awesome individual ships. Yeah, a lot of the series takes place on the ground, but that’s true of all of the shows. Plus, it has maybe the best soundtrack of any show ever.So that’s my top ten space cartoons. What are yours? Surely I left off your favorite, because the law of averages is the way it is. Thanks to everybody who helped me remember some of these great shows. Until next time, look to the stars!
