Have you ever sat and reminisced about what was popular when you were a kid? Well…. “Then and Now” Thursdays is right up your alley.

Remember cartoons, back in the day? Like the Smurfs, for instance.

The sweet, grainy cartoons we shot out of bed early on Saturday mornings to watch. I’d cuddle up in my long, frilly nightgown and nibble on my soggy Cap’n Crunch.

Have you noticed the change in quality over the years? Now, the cartoons are so realistic, it’s sometimes difficult to even tell they are animation.

What was your favorite cartoon growing up?

    Jem. She was truly outrageous. I had such a crush on her boyfriend, Rio. Wow. Just thinkin’ about him….Hmmmmmmm… (Jem was a big inspiration for Heather, my MC.)

    I really liked Bugs Bunny, too. I especially loved the Rabbit of Seville with Elmer Fudd.

    And Capt. Caveman. Zowie Wowie Teen Angels!

    Oh, and you definitely can’t forget Scooby Doo! Where are You? (The very first episodes.)

    I’m such a cartoon junkie I could go on all day long. I’m still a cartoon fan. I love Veggie Tales and The Simpsons.

    X-Men. That was the best ever!

    I found a video of one of the X-Men cartoon’s at a garage sale once. Good times!

    Kat’s right, Jem really was truly, truly, truly outrageous! But so were the My Little Ponies…
