Major Lazer fans everywhere are rejoicing today as the groupโ€™s long-awaited self-titled cartoon is being premiered on the FXX network at midnight tonight. The cartoon promises a strange (and maybe trippy) cast of characters that evoke the spirit of the groupโ€™s high energy and inventive visual aesthetics while paying homage to their favorite eighties cartoons.

The cast led by Jamaican superhero and rasta commando โ€œMajor Lazerโ€โ€“ voiced by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje of Oz and Lost fameโ€“ will feature a sorted bunch: rapper Riff Raff, Oscar winner JK Simmons, comedian Andy Samberg and Vampire Weekend frontman, Ezra Koenig, as a โ€œvegan vampire.โ€

In the spirit of the cartoonโ€™s release today, and as a recollection of our own childhood memories of Saturday morning cartoons, we compiled a list of the ten most unforgettable cartoons based on musicians.
