People can select from hundreds of channels of TV, but only a small fraction of those show cartoons, and the major channels only have one or two animated series at a time. That means you can still peg someone's age by the shared culture they grew up with, as new and different cartoons are offered over the years. For example, Baby Boomers watched Looney Tunes, and Gen X watched He Man and the Master of the Universe. Jill Harness designed a quiz that tests the recognition skills of Millennials in identifying cartoon characters, although anyone is welcome to try it. Yes, some are from animated series aimed at adults, but few older viewers know them. If you are a Millennial and didn't score at least 90%, you haven't been watching enough TV. I did respectably well for a Baby Boomer.
Try the quiz yourself, and find out how cartoon-savvy you are!
