Walking Down Memory Lane With Our Favorite Childhood Cartoons
The Telegraph

Our elementary school days not only included Lunchables but also spending the afternoons watching our favorite cartoons. Some of the best cartoons were played on the Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Now the two networks don't provide the same quality of cartoons as they did back in the early 2000s. We millennials, should be thankful for being blessed with unique and funny cartoon characters that we will forever remember.


We witnessed how strong the friendship between Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil was and how mean cousin Angelica was to them. These toddlers would take us inside their adventurous imaginations and sometimes they would have actual adventures without their parents ever finding out. These adorable characters told us how life was going to be like.

And thanks to these toddlers, Nickelodeon brought us "The Rugrats Movie." Our little hearts broke and tears streamed down our faces during this emotional scene between Tommy and Dil.

"Dexter's Laboratory"

Growing up I was jealous of Dexter because I wanted a secret laboratory as well. We watched as this boy-genius invented extraordinary things and how he struggled to keep his sister Dee Dee out of his laboratory.

"Rocket Power"

Otto, Reggie, Twister and Sam's daily routine included playing extreme sports. They made us go out and try to become skateboarders or surfers because they made it look so cool. But our favorite character had to be their Hawaiian/Surfer/Cook/Philosopher friend, Tito Makani, who gave us life lessons with very interesting quotes.

"Ed, Edd n Eddy"

These three best friends would always try to scam the neighborhood kids and get their money just to buy jawbreakers. That was their goal on every episode and they would fail every time. We wanted these three characters to succeed even though they always wanted the easy way out. We have to admit that we wanted Plank to be our friend, he was a great listener.


Cat and Dog were conjoined twins; one end was the head of a cat while the other end was the head of a dog. "CatDog" was one of those weird cartoons that made us ask ourselves, how is that possible? Their difference in personality was the cause of many arguments. The fact that these two siblings shared one body and fought all the time without the opportunity of getting away from each other made us laugh. At the end of the day like all siblings they would solve their differences, teaching us how to compromise.

"Courage the Cowardly Dog"

Our favorite middle of Nowhere resident was Courage, the pink dog that would go through a lot to save his owners, Maurice and Eustace. The middle of Nowhere was the constant target of paranormal events and supernatural creatures which Courage would easily be frightened of. Our least favorite part of the show had to be how Eustace would give poor Courage a hard time.

After all that, by the end of each episode Courage would live up to his name and defend his owners against the frequent unwanted visitors of the town.

Every time we remember anything related to our childhood, it makes us miss the days when we didn't have to worry about writing papers or applying for jobs. Now we wish we never said, "I can't wait to be a grown up."

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
