Cartoon Heroes

July 28, 2008 at 7:31 PM 31 comments


For all of you wondering whether these are the lyrics of one of my favourite songs Cartoon Heroes by Aqua, I am sorry but you are mistaken. I actually want to show you guys the role cartoons played in my life. Alright, I know what you are thinking. Is he such a nerd that he still watches cartoons? I am 21 yrs old for your information. But I find cartoons are much more than just 2D/3D animations. I am about to reveal a very startling fact to you. I actually learnt to speak some proper English only by watching cartoons. I know this sounds weird. But that is a fact.

I remember the good old days when I used to come home from school and watch a good bit of cartoons until my parents came home. The best part of all this is that we used to discuss cartoons like they were the most important things in the world in school. πŸ™‚ I still see many people discussing something like this; TV-series/soaps. πŸ˜€ It actually set me thinking. Do we actually need to watch these soaps and fill our hearts with contempt(I am not talking about my new theme πŸ˜€ :P) and sadness? I prefer getting a good laugh out of watching a cartoon series. But I now see even these cartoon series have changed a lot.

Whenever I switch on the TV and surf all the cartoon channels like Nick, Cartoon Network and Jetix all I see are a LOT of copied concepts and really annoying cartoon series which would be better off if they just stopped. I meant all these Power Ranger type of cartoons. I mean… what are they trying to achieve by doing this? But POGO is an exception where I still see some good shows like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and lots more. I had a good laugh and forgot all my troubles for a while.

Why is there so much merchandise on cartoons? :O I am still not able to comprehend all this. Of the half four show on the TV, approximately 15 mins of it is only commercials. and I HATE commercials. F*** those crazy B******S. For fear of being marked as a mature blog I have refrained from spelling out those words, which I would happily spell if someone asked. πŸ˜€

Why am I bitching about this here, you ask? I can’t find any other place where people will listen to me. πŸ˜› Simple, isn’t it? The other thing that captivated me as a young teen(wait… teens are SUPPOSED to be young. Right? πŸ˜€ Well whatever) are video/computer games. I was all coo-koo over them. πŸ™‚ Not my fault you see. Those people made them that way.

Ok. Be frank. Tell me how many of you have wondered how these games were actually made(do IΒ  use “actually” too often? πŸ™‚ )? I guess I could be one of the very few who wondered about this. But then I always had an over-active imagination. Some people may also refer to this as dweebism, if such a word exists. πŸ˜› But on the other hand, I have seriously considered taking up game development as a carreer. Sure, you can laugh at me. But all you people need to think for a bit. Are you taking up your carreer because you like it or because everyone is doing it and its the “in” thing?

Before this post gets diverted too much, I would like to say thank you for putting up with my nonsense for so long. πŸ˜€ Always glad to be of help.

-Yours lovingly,

Your friendly neighbourhood dweeb πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›

PS: Please go through my other posts and pages too. I am very disappointed because many people don’t. YEAH RIGHT!!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

    i feel pity for today’s kids for being unable to enjoy what a cartoon was really meant for… like, its main purpose is to make children think and appreciate the things in life which u cant experience when u r old…
    Cartoons like Tom & Jerry, Scooby Doo, Dexter’s Lab, etc make us think atleast few things… but these power rangers are gonna enhance only the terror factor… 😦

    i’d love to watch Tom & Jerry all day long even now…. as for Vid Games, its ur inheritance from your bro… πŸ˜‰ and i didnt get any such thing…

    @Apoorva
    Then why comment at all? But thank you for increasing the no. of comments by one. πŸ˜€

    @Smallstar
    You are very right. Maybe this is the reason why I stopped watching TV at all!

    @Harsha
    My brother? He has never played a video game before. Well maybe a computer game. But not a video game. And he always preferred playing outside rather than sitting in one place.

    You want serious gaming? How about bunking college for 3 months and sitting at a gaming center? Forgot so soon my pal? πŸ˜€ Thanks for telling on me though. Would hv ruined myself even more if you hadn’t. πŸ™‚

    @Apoorva
    Try watching them. They are fun. You are an artist yourself. Never wondered how these animations could be drawn? πŸ˜‰

    I agree with you completely! The old catroons – Looney Toons, Disney Hour and Batman are among the best! I still watch Tom and Jerry classics and as much as possible, I avoid Cartoon Network!! Too many ads and I can go make myself a nice meal by the time the ads end! Bah! Disgusting! I also love Courage, the Cowardly Dog! πŸ˜€

    Who doesn’t like cartoons? All of us do. We just don’t want to say it out because we are afraid other people will make fun of us. πŸ™‚
