Childhood Cartoons

“I don’t think of cartoons or comics as being for kids.”

– Jeff Kinney

In the past few days I’ve been watching cartoons again, since my classmates from graphic design couldn’t stop talking about those good old days. Talking about cartoons and anime is like talking about food for them, it’s so funny to see their faces like: “Oh, do you remember…. And did you watch…” So I decided to give you guys a list of my favorite childhood- and present Cartoons.

1. Hey Arnold! is about a 4th grader, jazz loving, big football headed 9 year old called Arnold, who lives with his grandparents Phil and Gertie. Arnold will often help schoolmates solve a personal problem and is always up to adventures with his best friends. Gerald, the keeper of Urban Tales and the coolest kid in class and Helga who is really mean to Arnold but secretly loves him.

2. Dexter Laboratory  is about Dexter, a genius boy who’s always working on new inventions and creations in his secret laboratory, but his annoying sister Dee Dee always seems to find a way to sneak into his laboratory  and destroy his work .

3. Daria is seriously my favorite! Daria is a sarcastic and intelligent teen. Sometimes people even consider she’s mentally unstable, she is very unpopular and the brain of the school. She doesn’t have allot of friends and seems only to hang out with her best friend Jane Lane. She rarely shows signs of  emotion, but her family and friends often claim it’s because she’s afraid that she’ll try to fit in and still not be accepted. But Daria is just Daria and she doesn’t care about what people think.

4. Recess is about six 4th graders, TJ Detweiler, Vince LaSalle, Ashley Spinelli, Gretchen Grundler, Mikey Blumberg and Gus Griswald. As they go to the Third Street Elementary School where the playground is ruled by King Bob. Funny enough their recess has allot of rules, its own government, class system, and set of unwritten laws.

5. The Powerpuff Girls is about 3 girls, Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup created in the lab of the professor Professor Utonium out of “sugar, spice and everything nice”, and accidentally some Chemical X. And that’s how the Powerpuff girs were created.  They save their city Townsville from  evil monsters.

6. Ed, Edd ‘n’ Eddy, everybody knows them. The show based on three boys known as Ed, Edd ‘n’ Eddy who hang around their suburban neighborhood Peach Creek who come up with scams and weird idea’s. Their plans normally fail and  the funny thing is that the adults are never around.
