Blame it on watching Scooby Doo, Arthur, and Disney Princess movies as a kid, but I love animation. Especially classic 2d animation. Yes, still. I’ve recently discovered Spongebob Squarepants, Phineas and Ferb (which has been on a marathon all day), Fox’s Animation Domination (Simpsons, Cleveland, Family Guy..) and South Park. Sometimes, when I’m in a really reminiscent mood, I’ll even flip on PBS and watch a Clifford re-run or find a disney movie just for kicks.
I don’t know what it is about this particular style, maybe it’s just the familiarity – but even still, I find it hard to resist the short satires and comedies where anything can happen and the characters are back in the next episode (well, with the exception of some south park episodes, poor chef). Maybe it’s just because it’s simply enjoyable and entertaining, I usually end up smiling if not laughing and in general it just cheers me up.
So I’m saying it. I like cartoons. I like kids cartoons and adult cartoons, and I have been watching the Pineas and Ferb marathon all day.
