Cartoons That Might Have Shaped My Childhood

I was going to do a list of shows but then I knew I’d need to include a bunch more things (Boy Meets World, Sabrina, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, etc.)   So I decided I would limit my list to cartoons. Additionally, I’m going to break this down into two separate lists.  The first will be cartoons I believe had a positive impact on me.  The second will be those cartoons which either totally freaked me out or just likely had a negative impact on my fragile child psyche.

Cartoons That Rocked

1. Science Court / Squigglevision – Seriously like nobody knows about this cartoon.  My sister and I loved it.  It is so forgotten that I can’t even find a clip on Youtube.  Just this sad Wikipedia article.

2. Sabrina the Animated Series – Enchanted cookie jar, talking cat, weird teenage aunts, what more could you want in a cartoon?

3. Gummi Bears – They bounced here and there and everywhere had high adventure beyond compare and lived in a sweet tree house thing.

4. The Weekenders – Probably one of my favorite cartoons of all time.  If nothing else I love how frequently this cartoon would break the fourth wall.

5. Pepper Ann – She’s much too cool for seventh grade.  She’s like one in a million.  And the show was awesome.

6. Doug – Both Nick’s version and Disney’s.

7. Hey Arnold – Stoop kid, football head, you’ve just got to love it.

8. Rocket Power – We are riders on a mission action kids in play position. Rocket Power!

9. As Told By Ginger – The grass was much greener on this show.

10. The Wild Thornberrys – Really cool and not a bit secret.

And last but not least,

11. DuckTales – Taught me that diving into a pool full of gold coins will not hurt you at all and will in fact act just like water would.

Horrible Cartoons

1. Rocko's Modern Life – Hated it.

2. The Ren & Stimpy Show – Awful

3. CatDog – Not good.

4. Aaahh!!! Real Monsters – Terrifying.

5. The Angry Beavers – Just bad.
