Childhood Cartoons You Forgot About

Childhood Cartoons You Forgot About

Looking back on old, iconic cartoons.

32

It's a weekend in the middle of July 2006. Your parents let you stay up past your bedtime last night but you're still up at 7 am, flipping between Disney, Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon for the perfect Saturday morning cartoons. What do you find?

Snorks

Snorks

Snorks was on the air from 1984 to 1988 and was considered a spinoff of the Smurfs. It was the cutest little show about a group of odd-looking underwater creatures that just hang out and make music. Hands down one of my favorite Boomerang cartoons!

The Smurfs

Smurfs

The Smurfs aired from 1981 to 1989. The TV series was based off of a Belgian comic series by the same name. It tells the adventures of Papa Smurf and the other Smurfs and their battles against the evil Gargamel.

The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy

Billy and Mandy

Airing from 2003 to 2007, Billy & Mandy started as a series of segments on Grim & Evil but eventually became its own show. It's all about the adventures of naive, happy-go-lucky Billy and Mandy, who is cynical and daunting. Grim puts up with all of Billy & Mandy's teasing and heckling and comes to love them over time.

The Flinstones

The Flintstones

Airing from 1961 to 1966, The Flinstones was all about Fred, Wilma, and Pebbles Flinstone, and Barney, Betty, and Bam-Bam Rubble and their stone age adventures.

Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends

Fosters Home

Foster's was on air from 2004 to 2009. Mac, a young boy, is forced to give up his imaginary friend, Bloo. However, Mac finds Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, where Bloo can live with other imaginary friends and still get a daily visit from Mac. The show is all about their adventures and shenanigans with the other imaginary friends.

The Jetsons

The Jetsons

The Jetsons, which aired from 1962 to 1963 and again from 1985 to 1987, was the space-age counterpart to The Flinstones. It's all about the futuristic adventures of George and Jane Jetson, and their kids, Judy and Elroy.

Hong Kong Phooey

Hong Kong

Although it was only on air for a year in 1974, Hong Kong Phooey is one of the best cartoons ever. It captures the adventures of Penry Pooch, whose secret identity is Hong Kong Phooey. He learns from the Hong Kong Book of Kung Fu and uses his job at the police station to take down criminals.

My Life as a Teenage Robot

Teenage Robot

My Life as a Teenage Robot ran from 2003 to 2009 and told of the adventures of robot XJ-19, or Jenny Wakeman. She was created by her mother to be earth's protector but really wants to live a normal teenage life.

Dave the Barbarian

Dave

Dave the Barbarian aired from 2004 to 2005. It takes place in the kingdom of Udrogoth during the Middle Ages and keeps up with Dave and his two siblings, Candy and Fang, and their battles against evil.

Brandy & Mr. Whiskers

Brandy

Airing from 2004 to 2006, this show captured the adventures of Brandy, a dog, and her sidekick, Mr. Whiskers, and what happens to them when they get stuck in the Amazon Rainforest together.

Hopefully, this inspires you to set aside a Saturday morning and rewatch all your old favorites - you can find most of them on Hulu!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
