Cartoons are quintessential television comedies. With their slapstick humor, they not only make us break out into a smile or a laugh, but they also feed our imaginations.
Some of the oldest cartoons can still compete with modern productions. There are cartoons from way back with clever animation, well scripted plots, a great variety of voices and music that fits each scene perfectly.
Let's remind ourselves of three well known cartoons that we loved when we were young. There's a good chance that you've seen plenty of episodes when it comes to these shows, and you probably enjoyed some of them just as much as I did.
In the 1960s through to the 1980s, we followed the trials and tribulations of the Jetsons, a space age family. It seemed very futuristic less than 30 years ago.
The way the program depicted life in the galaxies was not only entertaining but also credible. Many children envisioned the future just as the Jetsons lived it, and that simply wouldn't be such a bad thing. It seemed like a lot of fun to say the very least.
Popeye dates back over 50 years, but it was so well made you would hardly know it. Each episode was finely crafted and involved a timeless battle of good against evil.
Popeye always had to battle against Bluto for Olive Oil's affections. When he'd topped up on spinach, Popeye was like Clark Kent as Superman. Children would love watching his heroics after a can of spinach, and he was the quintessential superhero before comic books took hold.
Finally, let's not forget Looney Toons. The ultimate in classic cartoons, it has the legendary character, Bugs Bunny, who by no means looks his age.
Every Looney Toons episode has an excellent script and it's clear that great attention to detail was put into its making.
