Growing up in the 90’s the one thing I used to absolutely love after playing outdoors all day was watching cartoons. Back then TV only started at a certain hour so during the day you had to be creative and find ways to keep yourself entertained. I think cartoons started at 2pm and ran till 4pm and then we’d disappear from the house again only to return just before 6pm looking like we were literally swimming in dust. The only thing visible on our bodies were our eyes and teeth. That was a sign that you had a great day playing with your friends and it was time to catch your evening bath, eat and watch TV till 8pm because after that it was time for the adults to watch TV. How my little heart hurt that I couldn’t watch Santa Barbra…
Today my creative crush is Tina. I love her blog because her blog name is a real reflection of her. She has the prettiest dimples you have ever seen. Tina is a Marketer by profession and is currently studying Law. Her blog on her Favourite 80’s and 90’s cartoons inspired today’s post.
I still want to see the person who’s responsible for creating Spartakus and The Sun Beneath The Sea. That was the most horrible cartoon on the face of the earth. You’d be surprised that in as much as I used to hate it, Tina absolutely loved it!
I have a couple of my personal favourites from back in the day which include:
- Spiral Zone
- Captain Planet
- Pink Panther
- Muppet Babies
- Care Bears
- Courage The Cowardly Dog
- Ed Edd and Eddy
Such sweet memories that come with these cartoons. Life was simple back then and the cartoons were actually fun to watch not the things I’m seeing these days. How does a cartoon grow up? Ben 10 is now a whole man as we speak. Sigh…
