2005, the year of the debut of what would soon become one of tv's most beloved cartoons. I am talking about Avatar, the Last Airbender. I remember watching this with my older sister. I was in elementary school during it's 3 season run. I love this show. I love the stories of each character, and how the characters change over time. It was full of difficult challenges, inner struggles, romance, and of course, humor. In my opinon, very few other cartoons can compare to the greatness of this show.

My favorite character: Toph. She's blind, but she doesn't let that stop her. Plus, she is full of sass, which is awesome. She can also find her way around by feeling vibrations in the earth, which is pure cool. I also really like Iroh, Zuko's uncle. He's a very likeable character. He always gives Zuko great advice and is never really a bad guy.

Favorite character development: Zuko

Favorite funny moment: The scene where the main group is lost in the desert, and Sokka drinks the cactus juice. Hilarity ensues.

Hi! :)

Gosh I adored it too. Didn't grow up with it because my parents didn't allow me to watch Nick but I binged watched it when I found it for the first time. But I did end up watching LOK on Nick through all the seasons and episodes. Some people say it's a good show some say it's terrible. It has its ups and downs and the ending was fine although throughout most of the show I had a lot of nostalgia from the original and missed the old cast of characters. 

My favorite character: CABBAGE MAN!!!! (and certainly Toph/Sokka)

Favorite character development: Yeah Zuko was the best. Best backstory angsty teen that grew up into a more mature leader. Plus Sokka developed some great leadership skills too.

Favorite funny moment: The Day in the Life of Sokka "We're in enemy territory, those are enemy birds"

Thumbtack, did you get in trouble with the Fire Nation again?

I've been seeing this show around a lot on tv but never watched it fully until just a few weeks ago and I have to say, it became quickly one of my favourite. The Last Airbender is really enjoyable, but personally I can't say the same about Legend of Korra. One of my favourite things about AtLA are for sure the Spirits, such as the Face Stealer or the giant creepy talking barn owl in the library of Human Knowledge. The creepier they are the more I like them. Iroh is definitely one of my favourite characters, I think everyone would like an uncle like him, playful and silly but at need wise and the best paternal figure Zuko could have had. Aang is also my favourite, although when he lets his hair grow I found him really weird. And I don't know if it counts as characters, but let me just say I love the duck-turtles! They're so tiny and cute and I want an army of them. My favourite funny moments is probably the "giant mushroom" part, which was used in a RTTE CRACK and made my jaw almost fall from astonishment when I realized it.
Fun fact: did you notice Katara is voiced by Heather? It took me ten episodes straight to realize it xD
And the guy having the half romance with Korra in the first season of LoK, he's voiced by David Faustino, aka Dagur's voice actor.
Which kind of bending would you guys like to have?

Oh, there it is. Silly old universe. The more I save it the more it needs saving. It’s a treadmill.

Yes, yes I know they’ll get it all wrong without me.

Well, I suppose….one more lifetime won’t kill anyone. Well, except me.

You wait a moment, Doctor. Let’s get it right. I’ve got a few things to say to you. Basic stuff first.

Never be cruel, never be cowardly. And never ever eat pears! Remember – hate is always foolish…and love, is always wise.

Always try, to be nice and never fail to be kind. Oh, and….and you mustn’t tell anyone your name. No-one would understand it anyway.

Except….children. Children can hear it. Sometimes – if their hearts are in the right place, and the stars are too. Children can hear your name.

But nobody else. Nobody else. Ever.

Laugh hard. Run fast. Be kind.

Doctor – I let you go.

Yes, Mae Whitman voices both Katara and Heather, and David Faustino voices Mako and Dagur. I remember reading that on (of all places) the TV tropes website. I agree, while Legend of Korra does have some good elements (like Naga, Korra's Polar Bear Dog), it's not nearly as good as the Last Airbender.

My favorite character: um i cant choose but either Katara or Toph

Favorite character development: Katara. She went from a weak, scared little girl to a master waterbender in months. I'm thinking of the episode she goes hunting for her mother's killer here, when she was going to end his life but spared him.

Favorite funny moment: um...

PENGUINS!!!!!!!

-water tribe-

"I CAN STILL FIGHT"

"It'll quench ya! It's the quenchiest!"

"That's a sharp outfit, Chan. Careful, you could puncture the hull of an empire-class Fire Nation battle ship, leaving thousands to drown at sea. Because... it's so sharp."

"So... papaya."

"Error 404, Subject Not Found"

Toph: "We can take 'em. Three on three.

Sokka: "Actually, Toph, there's four of us."

Toph: "Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't count you. You know, no bending and all."

Sokka: (hilariously enraged expression) "I CAN STILL FIGHT!"

Toph: "Ok, three on three plus Sokka."

Sokka: (raging)

Also, "Aang, this is my friend, Foofoocuddlypoops, Foofoocuddlypoops, Aang."
