[TV] Cartoons You Grew Up With
I’m quite sure, at some point in your life, from infancy to an adult, you have seen cartoons. As for me, there wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t watch at least 10 a day. There’s nothing like waking up on a Saturday morning and binge watch on cartoons until Nascar came on. Whether it be anime, all American, or whatever stylistic origin, people have their favorites. I have my favorites of today, but I’m going to focus on cartoons from my childhood.
The Rugrats has always been one of my favorite cartoons. Whether it be the cartoon I watch on my way out the door for school, or Nickelodeon has a Rugrats marathon on its programming block, I never missed it. This cartoon has literally grown up with me, even through high school. You can’t say anything about this one.
If you don’t recognize this cartoon, then you never watched cartoons, period. This one came on tv at the perfect time, both during morning and evening hours. For some reason, everyone related to this one, in one way or another. Even your parents approved of this one. I’ll just let you go on a nostalgia trip.
Rocko’s Modern life
This one has pushed so many boundaries. If you go back and watch this one, I guarantee you that you will laugh harder. I’m so thankful my mom didn’t catch a lot of the boundary-pushing humor this cartoon had to offer.
Ren and Stimpy
Now, I’m FOREVER glad that my mom has never seen me watch this cartoon. I can only imagine the whoopings I would have gotten for watching this one. It may gross some people out at some points, but it was always funny to me, being that I’ve caught on to some of the slapstick humor as well. I have to admit, though, the adult version that released in the 2000s kind of ruined my childhood, but still funny.
What other cartoons do you remember?
