I watched cartoons today. After ages and ages and ages!!
I thoroughly enjoyed it - Sylvester and Tweety. I tink I thaw a putty tat!! I did, I did!! I did tee a putty tat! Man, they don't make cartoons like they used to anymore.
I remembered all the ones I loved to watch as a kid (and if I'm being completely honest, still do!). The kiddy ones like The Smurfs, Gloworms, Basil Brush and as a friend reminded me the other day - Morph!! Please tell me someone remembers that gorgeous lil' orangey brown plasticine man!
Then the girly ones like Rainbow Bright - she was my favorite with her horse, Starlight I think... and little star thingys she used to throw around - I'd drop everything to briefly attach myself to the floor right in front of the tv during that show. Another few I liked were The Paw Paw Bears and Sylvanian Families, but they weren't too famous and unfortunately not many people remember them. (lemme know if you do though, you'll immediately be a good friend)
Then the classic Tom & Jerry. I don't think I'll ever tire of those 2 lunatics!
We used to even watch the typical boys cartoons...He-Man, Bionic Six, the Fantastic Four - yes they were cartoons first! the Power Extreme guys..I don't remember the name of the cartoon though..it had a girl and an orangutan in it...sounds weird? My generation loved it! And oooh TMNT!! (For the ignorant, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) I'm singing the theme song as I type.

As we got older, the cartoons changed a bit - Looney Tunes, Victor & Hugo - Bunglers in Crime, Animaniancs, Marsupilami to name a few - I don't remember them too clearly, but I think they were nice as well.
It's been nice going back to the fun cartoons - not like todays Ed, Edd and Eddy...they have a friend who's a plank. Of wood. Yeah.
Long live the likes of Quick Draw McGraw, Pepe le Pew and Bugs Bunny.
I'll end with a favorite famous quote, by a man wise beyond his years...
Tttthat's all folks!!
