Who misses getting up early on Saturday mornings and watching cartoons? I sure do. I’m pretty positive that cartoons are good for your soul. None of the elementary schoolers I work with watch them though. What’s up with that? It’s all about Hannah Montana and The Suite Life on Deck. I’m not saying anything about the quality of those shows, but I wish I saw more cartoons every now and then. So for the person who loves cartoons as much as I do, I give you the top 7 CARTOONS CHARACTERS IN SUNGLASSES!
6. Johnny Bravo
Johnny Bravo, anyone? Me either. However, he was Cartoon Network’s beef cake for four seasons.
5. Hey Arnold
Oooh Hey Arnold. Sometimes I still want to say “Move it, football head!” Are you jealous of the men in black? ‘Cause I kind of am.
There’s Mr. Joe Cool, aka Snoopy. Growing up my favorite part of the newspaper was the funnies, especially on Sundays when they would be in color. I would rip open my newspaper to read Peanuts.
I’m not ashamed to admit my love of Pokemon. Or that I collected the cards. Or that I still have a Pokemon pillow. Or that I was in a Pokemon league where we would have battles once a week and could earn badges. Ok, that part was embarrassing. But seriously, look at Squirtle in those shades. I think it’s an instant transformation: cutesy to BA.
Rocket Power had me wanting to surf. It had me saying “dude.” It had me wanting to be a writer for the ‘zine. And I had a cartoon crush on Otto. He’s so cool.
Last, but not least I give you the adorable sponge guy from Bikini Bottom who stole the hearts of many. Everyone loves Spongebob whether they’re five years old or a full grown adult. There’s just something about that guy who lives under the sea! And Patrick!
I hope you enjoyed this trip down cartoon lane. Now go watch some good ‘toons. Like I said, good for the soul.
