Cartoons I Have Loved

Every parent has watched cartoons with their children and you either found yourself laughing or grimacing. My husband has recently been ordering those eighties gems from Netflix, that hold after school memories for him. I have compiled lists of my personal current favorites and golden oldies that I have loved.


  1. Little Bear--He is kind, creative and my personal favorite obedient. Each episode is like a little adventure and it is the least formulaic of the bunch.
  2. Handy Manny--"You break it, we fix it." Love the tools and Manny. How cute is a town named Sheetrock Falls?
  3. Veggie Tales--Wisdom and Morals in a funny, clever cartoon. Pitch perfect writing that I have used over and over again with my children. For example "a thankful heart is a happy heart," can be used in so many circumstances. Thank you Madame Blueberry.
  4. Little Einsteins--Beautiful music and art in an adventurous fantasy world. Probably my kid's favorites and I find them humming the classics all the time.
Golden Oldies
  1. Penelope Pitstop and the Wacky Races--My sister and I used to fight over who would be Penelope.
  2. Bugs Bunny--The most classic of all, if you have watched any vintage bunny recently it's also a time capsule. There are tons of WWII references and even a few shameful episodes that deal with race.
  3. The Chipmunks--Probably a really dreadful cartoon, but I loved it as a kid.
  4. Tom and Jerry--They still hold up today my kids argue over who is the mean one.
  5. XMen--My favorite of all the comic book cartoons probably because they had plenty of cool girls to relate to.
