KIDS AREN'T THE ONLY ONES WHO think Saturday morning cartoons are cool. Some rockers still get such a kick out of Scooby-Doo and Spider-Man that they lent their voices to a compilation CD of cartoon themes—Saturday Morning Cartoons' Greatest Hits (MCA). PEOPLE asked which shows these hipsters love:

MATTHEW SWEET: Old Warner Bros, shorts, like One Froggy Evening. "A man finds a frog that sings for him—but then it won't for anyone else. The poor guy gets so excited, but then nothing happens. It's a classic situation in life."

JULIANA HATFIELD: Pepe Le Pew. "It's so over-the-top. It takes the stereotype of a hopelessly romantic Frenchman to an extreme."

THE RAMONES' JOEY RAMONE: Quick Draw McGraw. "He and sidekick Baba Looey had real personalities. Before political correctness, cartoons could do whatever felt funny, like Baba Looey's Mexican accent."

THE MURMURS' HEATHER GRODY: The Flintstones. "I watched to figure out what was on the drive-in roof."

SPONGE'S VINNIE: The Tick. "Who can't appreciate a superhero involved with a character like Chairface Chippendale?"
