The joy of watching cartoons!

May 26, 2016 6:18am CST
I am generally a TV show fan and I have recently developed a great liking for movies as well. We all know how satisfying it can be to watch a good movie while laying in bed or just binge watch your favorite TV series on a lazy weekend. But recently, I was just surfing through channels on my TV and I casually turned to cartoon network to watch an episode of Tom and Jerry because there seemed to be nothing better on tv that day. It was surprisingly an incredible experience. I really don't know why but I reconnected with my childhood self. Thee was a strange sense of contentment as I sunk into my couch and watched Tom and Jerry back to back. It was as if I had for once been able to completely let go and just have fun. Maybe we should all just watch more cartoons. They are surprisingly enjoyable and have some great themes and jokes(some adult jokes as well!) So yes, I just wanted to share how I felt after watching cartoons probably after 6 years. It just felt great to feel like a child again!! So just sit down, look for your favourite cartoons and watch them.i had a fun time doing so and im pretty sure a lot of you would too! It's however very sad that they don't make such good cartoons anymore. It's almost like good cartoons stopped coming after the 90s. Sad for these kids.

Those persons who worked out cartoons like Tom and Jerry were real artists who loved what they were doing. I really miss those times.

I completely agree. The display of creativity in most of these cartoons was absolutely amazing, Those cartoons are evergreen and people of all generations have been able to enjoy them alike

Loved it always! Here's some interesting trivia. Did you know that it's been running since the 40s. I was pretty surprised when I learnt this!

It truly is a great show. No wonder it's been equally loved since decades!

maybe, kids just love more of this kind of cartoons than our era

I just feel like the new cartoons are not half as good. Sure, kids enjoy them. But the cartoons in the 90s and earlier just had better concepts and ideas in them. And great characters too. A lot of cartoons today imitate those old series.

@Curlybobby for example, my kids love Oggy and Cockroaches and Adventure Time, but I don't like them.

@ilocosboy Haha. Oggy seems to be the new favourite. But don't you think it has an uncanny resemblance to Tom and Jerry? Just an observation. Could just be me though..

Agreed... watching tom and jerry surely has direct connection to the childhood... But today's cartoons too have their story line to attract kids...

True. As long as they love their cartoons, it's all cool!! I guess it's just a thing to have a bias for our childhood cartoons
