I grew up watching a lot of cartoons. In fact I in my childhood only watched cartoons whenever I switched on the television. I watched cartoon shows very ardently until High school. There were some very amazing shows on cartoon network in my childhood like Dexter’s laboratory, Power puff girls, Popeye, Flinstones. It’s only later that I found out that these shows are pretty old and were on a rerun.
I spent all the afternoons on sticker to cartoon network channel, Pogo was introduced later but my first choice was always CN.
I learnt so many things through those animated characters, Powerpuff girls made me realise that there is an actual evil present in the world and we need some good powers to eliminate them out. Johny Bravo tells you that even the smartest people can be the dumbest. Winnie the pooh taught you that friends are must for your life and there is no harm if you sleep and eat honey all day. Popeye was the one who made me believe eating green vegetables is actually good for our health. Courage the cowardly dog was not that coward actually.
There was no violence, no blood shedding or any sort of theme which may affect a kid’s state of mind. Cartoons were pure, funny and innocent. I do not really follow what cartoon shows are running on television these days. But the set of cartoons that I watched was real gold. I still remember so many episodes, too many stories from too many cartoon shows.
Scooby do was one the most interesting, They always resolved the mystery cases and unmasked the culprit at the end. I was such a big fan of swat cats, that I used to imitate their acts while playing with my friends. I was glued to the screen when Aladin, Jetsons, Tom and jerry, chipmunks and Gummy bears were on. I loved Bugs bunny, The Sylvester and Tweety and Roadrunner too. I had quite a good laughs while watching these shows. Ed, ad and eddy were gross but I liked the way they had dubbed the series, I loved their voices.
Cartoons can bring a lot in the character of a kid. They teach you unbiased things. They do not bring differences in mind. They show that we should avoid bad intentions for any one and in the last its only good which wins over the bad. I doubt the phrase that cartoon is only for kids ? Is it really ?
