You know, now that you mention it, you're right. Patlabor would be a good series to air on something like CN. Other good ones would be Record of Lodoss War (maybe), Irresponsible Captain Tylor, Nadesico, maybe even Fushigi Yuugi (to really drive home that point that anime isn't just action or comedy, although MSG and Escaflowne should also do that).

Slayers would be another good one. Just run the series back to back. Works as one storyline is carried over into the next series.
