Reader Question: Childhood cartoons

What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?

For anyone who doesn’t know how old I am, this is going to do a good job of dating me. :) When I was really little I had a number of cartoons I loved: She-Ra, My Little Pony, Carebears, and The Raccoons, just to name a few. But I think my absolute favorite was Thunder Cats. I have many memories of playing Thunder Cats with friends, pretending to be one or another of the characters and racing off on great adventures.

As I got older, I stopped watching most cartoons, but there were a couple I still enjoyed in later childhood: The Little Prince and Belle and Sebastian.

It’s been forever since I’ve watched any of those, though. Now I’m feeling all nostalgic!

Okay, readers: What are your favorite childhood cartoons?

Rocky and His Friends


Clever, punny, witty, sophisticated humour.

I forgot about Rocky and Bullwinkle! My dad got my brother and I watching those and we loved them.

When I was 3, Thundercats was my favorite show. I used to watch it with my dad every afternoon. I never really remembered much about it, except the character's names and what they looked like and the fact that I loved it. I rented it from Netflix several months ago to see if it held up to memory. Sadly, no. Although my son loved it.

Yeah, some things I think it's better to keep as a fond memory. :) I've been sorely disappointed many times when I've gone back to books I loved as a kid, for example.

Beetlejuice was fun! I remember learning how to draw Lydia and thinking that was so cool.

She-Ra was awesome! 1980s feminine empowerment on steroids! I liked the Thundercats, too, but my all time favorite was always Tom and Jerry. I kind of felt sorry for poor Tom, who just wanted a snack.

It's funny, but kids now still watch Tom and Jerry. I'm a teacher, and one of my persuasive essay topics this year was for the students to convince me "Who is the most awesome cartoon character ever?" I gave this assignment to 2nd and 5th graders, and I did an example essay for them first. I chose Jerry of Tom and Jerry, and it's funny, but every single kid knew Tom and Jerry. Timeless entertainment, I suppose.

I wonder what the cartoons we chose as children says about us as adults?

Re: Cartoons
Hee hee, your comment about Tom and Jerry reminds me of how I felt about the Looney Tunes. I always felt bad for the coyote--he tried to hard to catch Roadrunner and had the most horrible things happen to him.

I am dating myself when I say Rocket Robin Hood. And when Bugs Bunny was on, I loved the Pepe le Pew skits.

OMG! Robin Hood in space! I don't think it can get any more awesome than that. :D
