Turning 30 at the end of this year is making me feel like I may finally have become a proper grown up. This makes it totally OK to look back on the past nostalgically, especially at the toys, fashions and cartoons we loved when we were little. I spent a little too long on Youtube watching some of my favourite childhood cartoons and thought I’d share them here. I was born in 1985 so I’ve just included stuff that I actually watched myself, here are 10 intros from my favourites…
Rude Dog and the Dweebs – This was my absolute favourite cartoon ever, it has achieved cult status in my home:
The Poddington Peas – Is it weird that I still know all the words to this one?
Jimbo and the Jetset – I remember singing this A LOT when I was little Jimboooooo!
Raggy Dolls – I’d forgotten all about this one until my mum reminded me of it. Now I can’t get the theme tune out of my head!
Superted – Superted is still completely awesome. I’m definitely going to watch this more with my kids.
Alvin and The Chipmunks:
The Animals of Farthing Wood: A little later than the others, but one of the best.
The Family Ness:
I hope you enjoyed watching these intros. Thank you to all the fantastic people who put these on YouTube. What were your favourite cartoons growing up? let me know in the comments and I’ll see if I remember them too!
