When I was four, I had so many shows I loved. I started every day watching The Fairly OddParents, ate lunch with my mother watching Disney’s House of Mouse, and returned to my Powerpuff Girl themed room every night.
While I loved all of those shows, one series I watched as a child has stuck with me all these years. We all have that one series we remember vividly; that one series that makes us feel good when we watch it; that one series we get hit by wave after wave of nostalgia about.
And with the English dub of the new movies coming out September 15th, it's time to rehash some of the lessons I've learned from my favorite childhood series.
