So the whole change your profile pic to your favorite cartoon character these past few days on Facebook inspired this blog. Some are from my era and some I’ve endured these past 10 yrs as a mom.
Best Top 10: (No particular order)
Smurfs- can’t wait for the movie! Ashley still plays with Dan’s old Smurf toys. I wish I still had my Smurf raincoat to give her, it was way cool.
TMNT-I’ll admit I didn’t watch this one growing up, Dan turned me onto it when he bought all the movies. Now it’s a standard Saturday morning cartoon in the Ayres household.
Muppet Babies-I loved all the adventures they had and would try to recreate them on my own, even had Muppet Babies curtains way past the age of appropriate, lol.
Fraggle Rock-the theme song will forever live on in my head. Dance your cares away, Worry’s for another day, Let the music play, Down at Fraggle Rock
Thunder Cats-hopefully another one that’ll be a movie soon
My Little Pony-I’ll never forget coming downstairs Christmas morning when I was 5 yrs old to the huge My Little Pony castle Santa left under the tree.
Sponge Bob-I know many parents don’t like this one, but I can’t help myself–HILARIOUS!
Strawberry Shortcake-Any cartoon where characters are named after deserts is gonna have me as a fan. Even the DVD’s smell like strawberries, sweet!
Scooby Doo-just classic
Space Ghost Coast to Coast-if you’ve never seen this one, check You Tube for their songs.
Top 10 Worst: (again, no particular order. Explanations on these are mainly just too annoying or too vulgar).
Hello Kitty (I know she’s cute, but the cartoon is like listening to nails on a chalkboard), Dora, The Simpsons (one of Dan’s favorites), Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, Beavis & Butthead, Bratz, Metalocalypse, Caillou, and Peanuts. I’ll probably get into trouble for that last one, and I did love them growing up. But now that I have kids, I think it’s one of the worst because most of the characters are just so mean.
Feel free to agree or disagree and comment with your own suggestions!!
I still love Peanuts!
Hello Kitty is ahhmazing! i would cover my entire room with Hello Kitty merch, which I almost completely have! 😉
