luvcraft asked me to write about:
i was such a cartoon fanatic as a child. in fact, so much so that i can't quite separate the cartoons i like when i was *actually* a kid from those i liked as an adult. not sure if any of you read the short story i posted awhile back called "Sting," but part of that was autobiographical. i spent most of my childhood at my ancient neighbor's house doing homework and watching afternoon cartoons. i also used to get up specifically early on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons. i can recall being awake at 8am at the latest and switching stations to follow the cartoons i really liked and weed out the ones i didn't. i can remember that once Soul Train came on, it was useless; all the cartoons were over and i had to find something else to do. i don't know that i'm up for giving reviews of my childhood cartoon tastes, but i can give a bit of a list ("kids" cartoons only): Thundercats, Voltron, The Real Ghostbusters, any Warner Brothers cartoon--specifically the Merry Melodies and Bugs Bunny, Garfield and Friends, Space Ghost, Superfriends, Dungeons and Dragons, Pac Man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Robotech, The Smurfs, The Snorks, Danger Mouse, Transformers. cartoons i remember watching when i considered myself an "adult": Darkwing Duck, Duck Tales, Earthworm Jim, The Tick, Animaniacs, Tiny Toons, Eek! The Cat.
my personal childhood picks? Warner Brothers cartoons, Animaniacs, The Tick, The Real Ghostbusters , Earthworm Jim.
