If you were born in the 90s, chances are, you’ve watched the same cartoons I have. Titles like “Courage the Cowardly Dog,” “The Powerpuff Girls,” “Dexter’s Laboratory,” and “Tom & Jerry” probably hit close to home.
In the Cartoon Edition of “Blast From the Past,” I’ll be jumping in the time machine and reliving my childhood. Maybe I’ll even jog some great memories from yours or get you to re-watch the series all over again, as I have.
This is no particular order, as I love all of these shows equally. This is only part 1 of the cartoon edition, written by yours truly, Lauren!
1 ) “Courage the Cowardly Dog” (1999-2002)
I’m a big fan of horror. I guess some of that influence comes from watching shows like “Courage the Cowardly Dog” and “The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy” as a kid.
“Courage the Cowardly Dog” revolves around a pink, cowardly dog named Courage who lives with Muriel and Eustace Bagges in the middle of Nowhere (the town is literally named “Nowhere”). Strange things happen to the family on a daily basis, and it’s always up to Courage to save his family from the perils of living in the middle of Nowhere, where the doctors, police, and authorities are useless.
Guided by his own instincts, and occasionally help from his talking computer or a generous character, Courage wards off creepy monsters to protect the people he loves… and often gets involved in situations difficult to get out of. If you’re into creepy stuff, this is the cartoon for you (and for me).
I mean, who can forget characters like Katz, Le Quack, Freaky Fred, and Di Lung, that one Asian guy with the memorable laugh? (I’m Asian, by the way.)
