Cartoons, who doesn’t love them? When was the last time you watched your favorite cartoons? I am sure we all grew up in a different cultural environment, but the 90s babies for sure share the same nostalgia in this top 10 Cartoon Network’s programs. Let’s go back to memory lane together!
1. Dexter’s Laboratory
‘Ooh, what does this button do?’
Didn’t we all want a secret laboratory when we were kids? Watching Dexter, I wanted so bad to have a secret place just for me, just as Dexter did. It showed me that a child’s imagination is limitless and that our parents didn’t fully understand our own secret world.
2. Johnny Bravo
‘Enough about you, let’s talk about me!’
Are we talking toxic masculinity or not? Let’s be real: Johnny Bravo is one of the first alpha males we have met. Even as a child, I strongly disliked him. His character taught girls what kind of man to avoid and boys what kind of man not to become.
3. The Powerpuff girls
And the day is saved!
Didn’t we all want to be the kids that saved the day? Maybe we didn’t save our town from villains like Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles did; but we for sure made the day of our parents when we talked about serving justice with our bare hands. Talking about hands, I am still wondering how Powerpuff girls’ hands could fight fingerless.
4. Ed, Edd n Eddy
Didn’t you want to eat a jawbreaker? They seemed to be so tasty, and that Ed, Edd, and Eddy craved them so bad made it all so frustrating.
5. Courage the Cowardly Dog
Cowardly Dog was another example of a hero in disguise. Nobody knew what he was dealing with, but the small dog always protected Muriel and Eustace from the monsters around the house.
6. Codename: Kids next door
What was your favorite number growing up? I had a thing for number 4, the happy Asian-American girl that had a green outfit and long sleeves.
7. The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy
The death isn’t so scary after you have been watching Grim being so kind and human, right? We all learned that life is full of grim adventures, but sharing this with your friends makes it better, right?
8. The Addams Family
The abnormal family strikes again! I used to like Addams family, but I found out later that they were an example of a backward family. It is disturbing to think that Morticia and Gomez loved each other so much so they could show an example of twisted reality.
9. The Flintstones
Don’t you use your feet to go places? One of the hilarious things that I liked about The Flintstones was using their own feet to drive. And all of those electronics that were eco friendly! Not so much animal-friendly, tho.
10. Scooby-Doo, Where are you?
Would you do it for a scooby snack?
Would you take the mask of things for a scooby snack? Scooby really did his job, teaching us that monsters were just human beings with masks and hurt feelings.
These are some of the best cartoons I watched in my childhood. We all learned so many things from there and they helped us see the world with fresh eyes. Don’t you miss the times when your major responsibility was to enjoy your cartoons?
