What was best childhood cartoon for you?

Sara PintoDec 27, 2021, 4:45 PM

For me, it's The House of Mouse on Disney. Basically, a mashup of all the Disney cartoons. It brings me such good memories https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHaO2byF8jw&ab_channel=CanadaToonFan

What about you? Limarc Ambalina Inception-Cafe Daniel Guzman Jack Boreham M贸nica Freitas Allyson Blinkhorn

M贸nica FreitasDec 28, 2021, 11:38 AM

Sara Pinto There are tons. Here's my list: Sailor Moon, Yu-gi-oh, Pokemon, Tom & Jerry, Pink Panther, a few Disney shows like Hercules (I was a sucker for this one), etc. I can't possibly finish this list, ahaha. Cartoons were my favorite thing as a child. I wish I could go back just for those Saturdays mornings, where I'd wake up early so that I could watch them.

Hercules was super underrated!

Limarc AmbalinaDec 28, 2021, 11:41 AM

So for my adolescent/teen years, I loved this one for some reason: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwFxGgs7T1k

M贸nica Freitas聽Limarc Ambalina聽I loved all of these!!! But Hercules does have a special place in my heart. The Disney series were the best, did you saw the other ones as well?

Sara PintoDec 28, 2021, 6:53 PM

Limarc Ambalina Both are great choices, but you got me binging videos of Arthur on Youtube! It brings such a wholesome feeling to watch these shows again

M贸nica FreitasDec 29, 2021, 12:29 PM

Sara Pinto, do you mean other Disney series?
I saw them all. From Hannah Montana and the Wizards of Waverley Place to Brandy to American Dragon, Timon & Pumba and Brandy and Mr Whiskers.

M贸nica FreitasDec 29, 2021, 12:30 PM

Sara Pinto speaking on it, what's your favorite Disney series and movie?

Sara PintoDec 29, 2021, 10:14 PM

M贸nica Freitas I meant Disney series from the movies, like Timon and Pumbaa. They also had a series on Aladdin and The Little Mermaid, as far as I remember. Did you watch them too?

Sara PintoDec 29, 2021, 10:18 PM

M贸nica Freitas Oof, hard question. Do I really have to choose? Haha. I think I would have to go with Hercules or Tarzan, for movies. And for the series, it's a tight race between House of Mouse and those series from the movies, like the Hercules one you mentioned.

M贸nica FreitasDec 30, 2021, 11:34 AM

Sara Pinto Oh, I used to see the Aladdin one. The genie was THE character to watch. As for The Little Mermaid, I didn't know there was a series.

M贸nica FreitasDec 30, 2021, 11:38 AM

Sara Pinto Nice choices. For me is Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Hercules. Honorable mentions to the Treasure Planet, Aladdin, Mulan, and The Emperor's New Groove. Just recently, I saw Rava, and it is incredible!

Sara PintoDec 30, 2021, 1:06 PM

M贸nica Freitas Oh, Rava was a good one! I pay close attention to the actors who give voice to the characters, and I have to say that Awkwafina did not disappoint

Sara PintoDec 30, 2021, 1:09 PM

M贸nica Freitas I found the intro to The Little Mermaid series! Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5ZLRqVPupo&ab_channel=TheLittleMermaidHD

Jack BorehamDec 30, 2021, 3:35 PM

Sara Pinto SPONGE BOB, or legend of the dragon. Have you guys seen it?

Jack BorehamDec 30, 2021, 3:37 PM

Sara PintoDec 30, 2021, 8:07 PM

Jack Boreham I've never seen either, but Legend of the Dragon seems pretty cool. What's the story?

M贸nica FreitasDec 31, 2021, 10:35 AM

Sara Pinto oh yeah, her voice is instantly recognisable

M贸nica FreitasDec 31, 2021, 10:35 AM

Sara Pinto, I guess I missed it ahaha

Jack BorehamDec 31, 2021, 12:23 PM

Sara Pinto, it's about a guy who gets dragon powers from a brand/bracelet. He then has to go collect other bracelets to save their world by stopping evil from getting their hands on them!

Sara PintoJan 3, 2022, 2:01 PM

Jack Boreham Oh, that's pretty cool! I wished that had passed during my childhood haha

Limarc AmbalinaJan 7, 2022, 6:40 AM

Sara Pinto I'm super super happy (and surprised) that Arthur made it out to Portugal!!
