If you are the host of a podcast about retro kid’s television shows, and Netflix drops a load of Cartoon Network gold in your lap, what do you do? Watch all of it, of course!
Watching is the easy part; however, picking where to start can be hard.
As with Nickelodeon in the early and mid-1990s, Cartoon Network had a lineup of wonderful cartoons by the end of the decade. I would be shocked if many of our listeners didn’t have fond memories of The Powerpuff Girls, Cow & Chicken, Johnny Bravo, etc.
To boot, many of the shows still hold up more than a decade later. Someday, I hope to share Dexter’s Laboratory with my kid (or kids).
I could sit down and marathon all of the shows, but of the bunch, Courage the Cowardly Dog wins the blue ribbon. It’s my favorite. John Dilworth created a gem, and I dig the supernatural vibe.
And don’t worry; knowing Klaus, as well as myself, we will surely watch many – if not all – of the cartoons from Cartoon Network’s golden era.
