Sean’s Top 5 Cartoons As A Kid[VIDEO]
Today on the show, someone used the word “snarky”, and it immediately took me back to my childhood because it reminded me of the cartoon character, “Snarf” on the Thundercats. I loved Thundercats! And That got me thinking about those Saturday morning and weekday afternoons when I’d get excited to see my favorite cartoons. So I thought I’d take you on a quick trip down memory lane and see if we shared any favorites. I know yours will be vastly different, and I’d love to hear your favorites but here are my top five.
5. Jonny Quest.
I used to love the adventures of Jonny Quest and his faithful friend Hadji, and their dog Bandit. This cartoon had many of runs, I think dating back to the 1960’s, but this is the opening theme to the one I remember most.
I admit, I am a nerd. I love anything to do with space, science and technology. This one had it all for me. And I did love the idea of 5 robotic lions forming an ultimate fighting robot. Its about teamwork! Here is the opener.
Man this was a fun show. I loved the characters, Lion-O was so cool and lets be honest, Cheetarah was a little hot. For a alien cat like creature. But who amoung you can not say you were right there screaming along with the TV to “Thundercats, Thundercats, Thundercats, HOOOOOOO!”
2. Scooby Doo.
Much like Jonny Quest, Scooby Doo had been around before the eighties but there were always new ones being made. You could never get enough of ” ..and I would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for those meddling kids!” I also now loved that the guy who did the Top 40 Countdown on the radio, Casey Kasem was also the voice of Shaggy. Here is the theme I remember singing to the most.
1. Battle of the Planets.
Much like one of the people who posted on the video I found on Youtube, I went nuts for this cartoon. If you ask me now I cant tell you why, but I can tell you I watched it everyday after school. These guys were the original “G – Force” way before hamsters took that name. “Always five, acting as one.” I loved the adventures, of Mark, Jason, Princess, Tiny and Keyop.
I hope you enjoyed this ride down memory lane, so what were your favorites?
