Anime for the win!!


Cartoons for me! :raising_hand_woman:t4:
From what I’ve seen, anime usually has the same style.
Cartoons have some really bizarre characters.


I like the old Looney Toon types of cartoons.
I don’t watch many other cartoons or anime.






For me it was Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry (when they didn’t ruin it by making them talk) and hey Arnold :heart: Oh and recess!


I love anime too much. It’s bc I draw it a lot lol


I love cartoons :3 I currently love star vs forces of evil & miraculous ladybug & My little Pony




Oh my goodness I ALWAYSSSSSS watched hey Arnold!!!


The most shocking thing about Hey Arnold was he was wearing a shirt not a dress :joy:


:joy: I never even realized that


I only found out a few months ago so you aren’t alone with not realizing! I came across an article about Hey Arnold and saw that and thought “how did I not notice?!” :joy:

The same article mentioned Rugrats (which I loved and still do more than anything), Phil & Lil can be seen as genderless, Chuckie had a single working dad as a parent and Phil & Lil’s parents had a role reversal… She was masculine and he was feminine.

It’s funny what you don’t realize til your older :thinking:


:joy: it really is and the rugrats it makes since I could never tell between those two.


I always looked for the little pink bow :ribbon:

There was quite a few they mentioned but I can’t remember them all. They mentioned Recess too. Spinelli’s male personality, the infrastructure of the playground was like politics - King Bob, Randall e.t.c
It’s amazing the amount of detail they put into kids programmes that kids wouldn’t and don’t understand :joy: I’m pretty sure Hey Arnold was written to mirror poverty and the characters each represented a minority affected the most by it.


One of the main reasons why I loved Hey Arnold.


I just found this and thought everyone might be interested to know what their favourite childhood cartoons represented:

Johnny Bravo - Unsolicited and relentless flirting is never a way to gain a woman’s affection.
The Flintstones - You can lead a happy life without technology
Scooby Doo - The real monsters are humans & food is life.
Roadrunner - Never give up.
Powerpuff Girls - Size doesn’t matter and you can be a badass without compromising femininity
Courage, The Cowardly Dog - Face your fears head on.
Dexters Laboratory - It’s ok to love science and have a passion at a young age.
Tom & Jerry - Even if you fight with your BFF all the time, you still love them at the end of the day.
Popeye - We can all harness strength from somewhere.
The Addams Family - You’re not weird, just different.


Dude I love the Adams family.
We wear black on Wednesday
