Kickin' it old school

Remeber the days when cartoons didn't suck? Yea, me too. It was the 90's. I could watch those all day long. No hidden educational crap, just good entertainment. Yea, I said it. My favorite was Rocko's Modern Life. Loved it. Rocko, Spunky, Heffer and Filburt were a good crew. It only lasted 4 short seasons. Tragic.

Another favorite was Doug. His song for Patti Mayonnaise was amazing. In case you've forgotten, it went a little something like this: "Patti you're the pickle in my coleslaw, Patti you're the sugar in my tea, Patti you're the relish on my hot dog, and Patti you're the Mayonnaise for me, whoa, whoa, whoa, Patty you're the Mayonnaise for me!" You'll be singing that all day now. Yea, you're welcome.

Rugrats hold a special place in my heart, but I'm talking about before Tommy's little brother, Dil came into the picture. And don't even get me started on that "All Grown Up" garbage that came out later. That's not the same. They ruined a good thing trying to make it "better". Yuck.

Last but not least is Hey Arnold. It came about a little later than the others, but still pretty good. That crazy football head kid was entertaining with all his dilemmas. But Helga was a jerk. Her eyebrows are awful. Arnold's grandpa gave him the worst advice, but what 80 year wouldn't do the same? Quality programming.

So what were your favorite kid cartoons? Don't even say Ren & Stimpy. Hated it.

I loved Doug especially! What happened to cartoons?! I'll have to find them on dvd for my nieces/nephews one day!
