Favorite cartoon?

February 10, 2012

It's 3:30 in the afternoon and I am watching the clock very intently.  Finally, I hear the final school bell of the day.  

My goal now is to get home by 4 p.m. before afternoon cartoons start. 

My Mother stops at the Piggly Wiggly on the way home to get dinner and I pick up an afternoon snack.  I am rushing my mother along. 

We finally get home and I grab my snack and rush to the TV and adjust the rabbit ears and get ready to watch my favorite afternoon cartoons through all the snow but it is still my moment of bliss.

These are my memories of a normal afternoon at the Kight household.

Did anyone else have a similar experience growing up?  Cartoons were a big part of my life as a kid and I still love to watch them. 

My TV is usually on Cartoon Network, Boomerang, HUB, and CNN.

Some of my favorite cartoon as a kid were He-man, Thundercats, Transformers, and G.I. Joe.

What were some of your favorite cartoons growing up?

Do you still like to watch them sometimes for nostalgia?

Here is the intro to the G.I. Joe cartoon from the 80s:

 

 This is still my favorite cartoon and I still can watch the episodes at night.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
