Ah ;).. U31 was great too ;)...

I'm from Belgium, i've probably watched the same cartoons as you...

don't forget :

Albator (captain harlock): intersideral travels Capitaine Flam : intersideral travels, AI, robotics,... galaxy express 999 : immortality /robotics Jayce et les conquérants de la lumière : transhuman biotechnology/robotics
Ken le Survivant, dragonball Z : transhuman art of war Les Schtroumpfs (the smurfs) : lilliputian posthumans Les Transformers : transformation of the self Le Village dans les nuages : transhumanist technologies Alice au pays des Merveilles (Alice in wonderland) : virtual realities Le Croque-monstres Show : transhuman bodies Les Trois Mousquetaires (un pour tous et tous pour un) : iterated prisonner dilemna


but seriously, perhaps we could discuss the most transhumanistic cartoons we know of ??
