What happened to cartoons?

Saturday morning. I'm lying here on my couch with a freaking cold. I hate any part of being sick. No, not hate-loathe. Yes, that's better. I spent a good portion of my childhood being sick, so when I have even a hint of a sniffle, I'm just annoyed. But oh well, it is what it is, and I'll get over it...hold on, just let me take some Nyquil.

Now, I don't often just hang out on the couch on Saturday mornings. I'm usually up and cleaning house or off to run errands (translation: errands usually = shopping. ha!). But since I am just lying here this morning, you know what would have been super nice? A morning full of cartoons. Yeah, I know...you moms may be saying, you're joking right? That's all I do is watch cartoons. But I'm not talking about the cartoons of today. I'm talking about the cartoons we all grew up with. Now, I realize I may not be up to date with what's on TV now, but it just seems to me that a good portion of today's cartoons just aren't funny. I don't think it's because I'm an adult, because I admit that I have the sense of humor of a child. One of my favorite gadgets is my fart machine (the best $10 I ever spent). I really think it's because these cartoons just aren't funny. What ever happened to the greats like Thundercats, the Smurfs, Snorks, He-Man and She-Ra, Gummi Bears, or <enter your favorite cartoon here>?? Those were great cartoons!

When I was a kid, there was absolutely nothing better than to wake up, realize that I didn't have to go to school, roll out of bed, roll onto the couch (after I turned the TV on and switched the dial MANUALLY. How did we survive with no remotes?), and watch cartoons all morning. And Saturday mornings usually meant pancakes. I'm telling you, there was nothing better than that. I guess with these cable stations now, there's no need for Saturday morning cartoons. You can have cartoons all the time, and that's fine, but dudes, take a look a your cartoons and make them better at least. Make them funny! So, with no good cartoons on right now, I guess I'm just going to have to pick out a dvd...oh no, a decision.

PS. For all of you He-Man fans, Hulu.com has posted some episodes of season 1. Go re-live your childhood!

About Me

My photo
I'm a walking contradiction. While I love to draw, paint and read, I also love all things gadgets, science and even science fiction (I know). My animals (two dogs and two birds) are my heart, and if I could figure out how to legally own a giraffe, I would. That all said, I have my BS in Mathematics. :o)
