10 Animated TV Shows That I Wouldn’t Mind Getting The Live-Action Treatment

With the One Piece live-action series being a hit and the new Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action series showing great promise, I think it’s safe to say that live-action remakes of classic cartoons/anime are the future of entertainment. Of course it hasn’t been smooth sailing for most live-action remakes –I’m looking at you, Cowboy Bebop – but if done right, I feel like these remakes can be a huge hit amongst old fans and garner new ones in the process.

Since my hopes for live-action seem to be at an all time high, I thought of a few animated TV shows that I wouldn’t mind getting live-action remakes.

1.Dragon Ball Z (1989-1996)
