15 Things We learnt From Cartoon Network

If you are a 90’s kid, the chances are that you have grown up watching the best thing on T.V., the old Cartoon Network!

Yes, definitely ‘old’ because they don’t make them like that anymore! You swayed to the starting song of ‘Powerpuff Girls‘(Yes, I know you are singing it in your mind right now), you wished Dee-Dee would leave Dexter alone, you wished Daphne would marry Fred, you prayed that Wile-E-Coyote would at least ONCE be able to catch the road-runner. You could NEVER let your parents take the T.V. remote away from you when it was time for the Tom & Jerry show(Hands up if you changed your loyalties between Tom and Jerry with every show).

Courage, the Cowardly Dog, made sure you spent sleepless nights and crawled into your parent’s bed in the middle of the night, and Johnny Bravo made you feel much better about your flirting skills. You would make sure you watched The Flintstones and The Jetsons because they aired them back-to-back while they left you marveling at how two shows set in starkly different times could still steal your heart.

Baby Loony Tunes made you go all ‘aww’ while you couldn’t wait to cheer for the Scooby Doobies and boo the Really Rottens at the Laff-A-Lympics.

Deep sigh.

Don’t you wish you could sit in a time machine and go back to those glorious days to sit in front of the television when it wasn’t really an ‘idiot box’ because it gave us our entire childhood? However, just like Cartoon Network gave us our childhood, it also put forward for us some very interesting theories:
