I didn't hop on the Avatar bandwagon til after the show was already over. I caught a marathon on one day and I was completely hooked. Went and bought the whole series that weekend.
It's honestly the best cartoon to come out in the past 10 years, by far. And like you said it's on par with regular TV shows, f*ck comparing it to cartoons. It's like how Lion King was to non-animated movies.
One interesting fact. Avatar is the only animated show in history to win a Peabody award for its character development
