10 Old Cartoons We Miss and Hope to Come Back
Adults know how great we had it when it came to childhood. We didn’t have phones or social media to keep us distracted. Our Sundays were booked watching reruns and marathons of our favorite cartoons. The cartoons of those days used to be good too instead of the violent, graphic and messy cartoons kids watch nowadays. We grew up laughing with Bugs Bunny, Jerry, Dexter and, of course the most mischievous one of all, Pink Panther. So here are ten of the cartoons that we miss and wish would come back so children of nowadays can know what actual entertainment is.
1. The Flintstones
The Flintstones was a cartoon that made us laugh so much with their antics and also amazed us at how they managed to do all the things we do without any technological help. Their animals, clothes and cars were all signs of a stone age era but their funny activities were very modern. Fred and Barney were the best of friends that taught us all how to have a healthy friendship in our lives.
2. Dexter’s Laboratory
Who can forget poor Dexter, boy genius, who only wanted to learn science and carry out experiments in his extraordinary laboratory but was always thwarted by his quirky and bubbly sister, Deedee. She always ruined his tests and experiments but also loved him like any elder sister would.
3. Scooby Doo
Scooby, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne, and Fred were the group of best friends that we wanted to be a part of. They were intelligent, funny and always went on fun adventures together in their Mystery Machine. Solving mysteries that at first seemed the work of a ghost or ghoul but turned to be just a devious human were a lesson we all needed to learn. Plus, who did not want to get a brown dog, named him “Scooby” and feed him full of treats?
4. The Powerpuff Girls
From the iconic song to the empowering theme of the cartoon, there was a hardly any flaw with Powerpuff Girls. We all wanted to be just as cool, strong, and fierce like Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup. They were the heroes every girl needed to have and would be even more relatable now, teaching little girls how to be strong and cute at the same time.
5. Looney Tunes
Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky, Sylvester, Tweety, Marvin, Lola Bunny, Coyote and the Road Runner always made us laugh uncontrollably with their funny antics. Their mischief drove the poor old woman wild but they were exactly the kind of friends we wanted.
6. Tom and Jerry
One of the best, if not the best, cartoon of 90s was hands down Tom and Jerry. The cat and mouse who spent their whole lives trying to one-up each other and pulling pranks on each other never left us bored. We were not worried about what would happen if Tom ever caught Jerry because he never could catch him and we knew they loved each other to ever do something harmful.
7. Popeye – The Sailor Man
The only one who could make young kids love eating spinach was Popeye. We saw how he would become super strong after eating cans of spinach and would try to immitate it, being too innocent to know the truth. Popeye was forever saving his damsel in distress, Olive and we loved the antics they would all get into.
8. Ed, Edd and Eddy
It wasn’t all about cool guys and girls winning the day back then. These three who failed at every one of their schemes to earn money reminded us that it is okay to be a bit of a loser or only hang out with our two best friends who are also weird and crazy like us.
9. Pink Panther
Who did not love the suave and smooth Pink Panther who always escaped from the clutches of Detective Jacques Clouseau? His antics may not have been totally legal but we had fun watching him do it. And the confusion it always brought upon the detective was always hilarious.
10. The Jetsons
The opposite of The Flintstones was The Jetsons, a cartoon about a family set in space-age where everything is futuristic and technologically advanced. The quirky inventions and the family’s adventures including those of their robot maid, Rosie, were always funny. We thought the future would be exactly like it no matter how impossible it seemed. We loved imagining living in such a convenient time not knowing that it is basically unrealistic but who knows maybe our wishes will be granted one day.
