They've been conditioned to it. Just as music has gone down hill and most of the younger generation are just fine with it. They know no better is all.

WHY WASN' I BORN 10 YEARS EARLIER.
post #8463 of 11312

Just think. If you'd been born 10 years earlier, you would have seen the pilots of Dexter's Laboratory and the Powerpuff Girls and Johnny Bravo, back when nobody knew they would go on to become series. And you would have gotten sick of seeing those pilots, actually, because they played them over and over. Technically, there had to be a first time when I saw each of them, but I have no idea what kind of a first impression they made.

 

It's funny. Now that I think back, I didn't actually "watch" the cartoons a lot of the time because my Legos were on the opposite side of the room as my television, which was pointed such that I couldn't see it when I was building. So if it was something I'd seen many times before I would just follow along by sound. I did have one of those things you could swivel the TV on, except the stand wasn't very sturdy and the TV actually fell to the floor once. Imagine how traumatic that is for an eight year old*. I never turned it again after that, even after I got a far sturdier stand.

 

*Particularly one who had seen the clock breaking scene in the movie Groundhog Day out of context, didn't understand what was happening, and was henceforth utterly terrified of anything to do with wrecked electronics. I didn't get over that phobia until I was 14 years old, and to this day when people get mad at a printer or something and start pummeling it I feel a twinge of apprehension. Yes, I'm thinking of that scene in Office Space.

There were some good original cartoons on Nick in the 90s. Angry Beavers, Aah! Real Monsters, Ren & Stimpy, CatDog, Doug, Wild Thornberrys, etc - especially if you were an adult watching them.

I forgot Hey Arnold, Rugrats, SpongeBob and one of my favorites: Rocko's Modern Life!

I think cartoons jumped the shark when they had the mouths blurring instead of articulating the words.

Oh, and astroboy hit the CRT's. Oh... woe is the cartoon industry......

 

Where today can you find such notable characters as Marvin the Martian, Griswald the dog and Daffy Duck?

 

Bronies beware.......

I finally found the term to describe my favorite type of music:
Symphonic Prog.

Even though I was more of a Cartoon Network kid than a Nick kid, I was aware of some of these, however vaguely. I seem to remember watching Doug, Ren & Stimpy, and of course Rugrats. Apart from Rugrats, though, I remember almost nothing about them.

I took a break from cartoons in 1998, and over a year later when I checked back on Cartoon Network again it had already started going downhill.

But hey! We've got My Little Pony, so maybe we made out in the trade!
Also! The new TMNT on Nick is actually good! Yes, the traditionalists will be in a uproar that it's in 3D but, it's actually a good and entertaining show and I don't mind watching it with my son when he asks for it. It's waaay better than watching Dora. redface.gif

I loved Doug and didn't take well to the version that Disney released. I remember watching R&S but I don't remember much from the series itself. Just an episode or two and some random clips like Powder Toast Man, Log commercial song, and Space Madness!!!

Stupid US Post Office. $%#%sldkfj. frown.gif I set up a Change of Address, forgot to update my address info and thought that it was no biggie that it was going to old address. WRONG. The package never got forwarded and the old address has a "Vacated Apt" notice in there so the postal worker won't leave my package with the office. Tracking just says that it's undeliverable and no one at the postal offices know where the fricking package is. Raaaaagh. frown.gif My M200s are lost. I'm going to try the main office again tomorrow. Blargh. *end rant*
