More about cartoons

When I was a kid and we didn’t have any dedicated cartoon channels like Cartoon Network, etc, every time a cartoon comes on, my mum would call for us to watch it. We kids back then didn’t live in front of tvs the way most kids these days do. Heh. But even so, man… Those were the days. He-Man, She-Ra, Jem (and the Holograms), Thundercats (hooooo~!), Silverhawks, Voltron, Ultraman… OMG. Nostalgia~! I found out that DVD versions of most of these cartoons were released some years ago. They only have one volume of Silverhawks though. =( If I recall correctly, we had a VHS tape of Silverhawks, so we never really watched the whole thing. I sooo wanna watch it all now after watching one episode on Youtube. *laughs*

I’m looking at a list of 1980s cartoons and I know quite a number: DuckTales (OMG. Still one of the cutest cartoons ever), The Smurfs, The Real Ghostbusters, Heathcliff, M.A.S.K., Fantastic Max, Centurions…

Did anyone ever watch Alfred J Kwak? All I recall is a cute little duck with a long name, but for some reason the name sticks with me and I remember it when I recall cartoons from back then. ^_^

And in the 90s, we had Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (we had this on VHS before it was aired on the local channel), Darkwing Duck, Pirates Of Dark Water, Biker Mice from Mars, Animaniacs (I love Marsupalammi best), Adventures of the Gummi Bears (love the opening theme), TaleSpin (gotta love Baloo), Gargoyles (OMG, this was so love–beastmen-like beings!), Mummies Alive!, Extreme Ghostbusters (this was fun), Captain Planet, NKOTB (haha)…

In the 2000s, we had Disney Channel and Cartoon Network at last. But the stuff I recall the most are kids cartoons from Disney, in particular Rolie Polie Olie (I love this show) and Bu Bu Cha Cha (I seriously want this on DVD!).

The difference in the cartoons you find now and the cartoons back then… Cartoons after the 90s just get smarter and smarter, and the humour and scriptwriting seems a whole lot more mature. Or it could be that I matured and could appreciate better storylines more… *laughs* But back then, some of the cartoon stuff didn’t have to make too much sense. These days, the stuff seem tighter knit.

*happy sigh* I love my cartoons.
