Star Wars: the Clone Wars (2003-2005 microseries)
in 2003, Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky was given the task of creating all new Star Wars shorts that would run between shows on Cartoon Network, and then later a series of longer episodes for season 2. it was fucking amazing. it doesn't get much attention now, and some of that might be on purpose by Lucasfilm since the newer CGI show came out. but when i was drawing The Clone Wars for Dark Horse Comics a few years back, these were the shows that inspired me (much to the fan's disappointment haha. cartooniness is not exactly what SW fans are looking for). it's classic Star Wars that has the same spirit of the original films. enjoy.
