What Cartoon Would Be A Good Live Action Movie?

Setting aside Archie (if they ever did it right), I'd go for Archer, or better yet, The Herculoids. The CGI alone could be cool. Zok, Igoo, Tundro, and the biggest challenge, Gloop and Gleep, would be awesome. Get a great script, of course. Space Ghost and (not Harvey) Birdman could have potential. Mightor? Possible. Jonny Quest should have been had a movie a while back. Discuss! :)

PTF

There's so many.

Just for scope, characters, and actions, I'll go Robotech.

Yeah! Why hasn't there been a Jonny Quest movie? That cartoon with Sherman and Peabody would be pretty cool as a movie.  I guess you could give the dog peanut butter to make its mouth move.  Sorry Peta.

I have to go with Clutch Cargo.

There were some great stories with Clutch, Spinner and Paddlefoot. The strange Syncro-Vox system gave the limited animation efforts a unique look with the inserted film of their lips moving. Strange stuff, but fun stuff. it would be a very interesting live action movie. Maybe the lips could be animated!

Second choice: anyone remember Colonel Bleep?

There already was a Mr. Peabody & Sherman movie (and a Dudley Do-Right movie, an Adventures of Bullwinkle & Rocky movie, and even a Boris & Natasha movie). Mr. Peabody & Sherman was all-CGI, Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle was live-action with CGI characters, and the others strictly live-action. Be careful what you wish for, though -- let's not forget they turned Speed Racer into a live-action movie (I actually saw that one in a theater, and it felt like being trapped inside a pinball game). I can't help but think Hollywood would completely mess up something like Jonny Quest, losing absolutely everything that made it cool as a cartoon in the first place. The Scooby-Doo movies weren't bad (for what they were), but for the most part that's more the exception than the rule. Most movies based on cartoons seem to turn out really badly. I guess if I had to pick one, I'd say Dynomutt.

Ok, sorry.  Not a movie person.  Didn't know Sherman and Peabody were already a movie.  What about that Penguin and walrus? How about that old dude who spins a globe and tells tall tales of his adventures? I think he might be a tippler.  :)

Tennessee Tuxedo & Chumly (Tennessee, the penguin, was voiced by Don Adams of "Get Smart" fame), and The World of Commander McBragg was the old dude who spins a globe -- "In his world, he's a king! He can do anything! Or so says the brag of McBragg". I think the only "insert" cartoons you missed were Klondike Kat ("I'll make mince-meat out of that mouse!") and the Go-Go Gophers, all of which have remained untouched by feature films. The exception to that bunch was the live-action UNDERDOG feature (made by Disney no less), which apart from filching some of the original character names (Polly Purebread and Simon Bar Sinister), had little to do with the cartoon. All of those original cartoons (along with The King Leonardo and Odie Show, which had as insert cartoons The Hunter and Tudor Turtle) were Total Television productions, and often get confused with the Jay Ward productions like Rocky & Bullwinkle, Dudley Do-Right, and George of the Jungle (who also had a live action movie) -- chiefly because both companies used the same Mexican animation studio to do the actual animation (scripts, storyboards, character design, music and voice acting were all handled by Jay Ward and Total Television, respectively).
