ITT: we discuss the opening sequneces/intros to cartoon. The good, the bad and the ugly.

Give ratings and analysis. Disagree with idiots. Post webms. Whatever.

Warning: opinions will appear in this thread

Opening the thread with a strong one:
>not just a lazy compilation of scenes from episodes
>high replay value
>great background tune
>not obnoxiously long
>succinctly yet sufficiently introduces core characters and themes (assuming you are already familiar with the Grim Reaper)
>actually has VFX

I rate it highly.

I never really liked this intro.

First off, everything except the title card is a bunch of random shots from from the pilot episode. And they kept same intro that all the way throughout the series, with the only change being that they removed John K's credit at the end.

The music is alright, but apart from showing a little bit of Ren's personality, all the opening sequence does is convey 'wacky cartoon shenanigans' (which, to be fair, is what the show is about) but for a 40+ second intro, it doesn't do much to introduce the show at all.

and then there is Regular Show.

Sure, it doesn't really say or do much, but at least it's succinct. Not particularly good, but not bad either. I'd take it over a bunch of filler any day.

Everyone knows the objectively best cartoon OP belongs to "Batman: The Animated Series".
I don't know, Men In Black always gets the props.
