Fast Five Friday: Childhood Cartoons

It's time for another installment of Fast Five Friday, created by the ladies over at Cover Girls! This week they've asked as to share five childhood cartoons. The hardest part was actually narrowing it down to five!

BTW, I was probably most obsessed with #1 when I was little (so I guess I've had an obsessive personality since childhood...). My stuffed Darkwing Duck was my favorite toy for quite some time and I even threw him a birthday party, complete with Easy Bake Oven treats. If that doesn't scream 90s I don't know what does.

1. Darkwing Duck
2. Garfield and Friends
3. Tiny Toon Adventures
4. Ren & Stimpy
5. Rocko's Modern Life

What were some of your favorite childhood cartoons? Have a great weekend, everyone! I've got my 300th blog post on Monday! Still no idea what it will be about, though...


  1. As a child in the UK in and after the war years, we didn't have such comics. I don't remember anything like that for younger kids at all.

  2. I am really going to show my age here but it was Bugs Bunny (I named our cat Bugsy) and the League of Justice. I always pretended to be wonder woman- then she got her own show which reinforced this behavior- running around the yard lassoing bad guys and taking off in my invisible jet with Aquaman (sigh).

  3. I know all of those! Awesome. Scooby-Doo was one of my favorites. Have a great weekend! :)

  4. I loved Darkwing Duck when I was little. I should try to find it and watch it again.

  5. I remember the ones from the '50's and '60's: Mighty Mouse, Heckle & Jeckle, Woody Woodpecker, Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, Quick Draw McGraw, Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy, Magilla Gorilla, The Flintstones, Top Cat, Pixie and Dixie with Jinks the cat, Beany and Cecil, the whole Warner Brothers and Hanna-Barbera crowd, Tom Terrific, all the Harveytoons like Richie Rich and Baby Huey, the Archie gang, and, when I got older, all the characters from the underground comics, like Snappy Sammy Smooth, Mr. Natural, the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, Fritz the Cat, etc. etc. etc. I was really into cartoons...

  6. Oh, man, my whole childhood was cartoons!
    - Looney Tunes (Bugs 'n' Daffy for liiiiiife)
    - Scooby-Doo (Shaggy for liiiiiife)
    - Garfield and Friends
    - Casper the Friendly Ghost
    - Magic School Bus (also for liiiiiife, Ralphie)
    - The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    - Arthur (based on the Marc Brown books, dontcha know)
    - The television series of Disney's Aladdin (FOR LIIIIIIIIFE) and Little Mermaid
    And then there was the special treat that we only got to see at our grandparents' house, 'cause they had cable: The entirety of the Cartoon Network.
    I'd go on, but I think the rest of my favorites didn't show up until my teen years, so we'll close the childhood chapter here.

  7. Wow, you are definitely a young'un with those cartoons. I was into a few of those from the 90's (Ren & Stimpy and Rocko's and Tiny Toons), if only for the music (love the B-52's doing the Rocko theme), but being that I just turned a half century, my speed while growing up was the classic Warner Brother cartoons. Most everything else pales by comparison.

  8. I loved all of these growing up!
