Another cracking listography from Kate Takes 5 – Click here to read all the others and add your own.
Cartoons ‘in my day’ were so much better than the ones around now. Most of the stuff on the kids channels (that I put on when I need to keep Boo quiet for five minutes) all looks the same and has had so much creativity syphoned out because of its computer animation.
Here’s my top five list of cartoon characters that I remember loving:
5. Potsworth and Company
An early 90s cartoon about a group of kids who meet up in the ‘dream zone’ when they are asleep and save the world from the evil clutches of the nightmare prince. Awesome.
4. Henrys Cat.
He’s yellow. He likes to eat and sleep…That’s about all that I remember.
3. Rainbow Brite
Typically girly and typically 80s, this was my video of choice when I was allowed to pick at the video rental place.
2. Penny Crayon.
She draws stuff and it comes to life. What’s not to love about that?!
1. Stop It And Tidy Up
I loved these guys. Each character was named after a demand often heard by children; Brush Your Teeth, Comb Your Hair, Beehave and Beequiet to name a few. Terry Wogan was the perfect choice for narrator. I
made let Boo watch an episode on YouTube and she loved it. That made me happy.
