When I was in elementary school, boxes of hand-me-down clothing regularly arrived from my cousins. I was in second grade when a box arrived with a truly spectacular article of clothing. The next day at school, I put the message out for all the boys in my class to meet me in the coat closet, because I had something to show them.
And this was how my teacher ended up opening the coat closet door to find me standing on a chair, holding up my jumper to display my amazing new Wonder Woman underwear to a crowd of awe-struck 7-year old boys. My parents must be relieved that I became an accountant, not a stripper.
With that auspicious start, let's move on to my top 5 favourite cartoons for a Listography from Kate at Kate Takes 5 - the linky's here if you want to play too.
Can I just say how much I still love this logo? My two favourite colours, crisp clean lines, and a feline vibe...it's all good.
Thundercats was all about She-Ra for me. My little control freak heart thrilled at the idea of being a Princess of Power, red cape and all.
I don't think I saw the Popples show more than once, but it made an impression and my Popple was one of my favourite toys for years.
3) Rainbow Brite
Cuz she's just so cute! And that horse is magnificent.
4) Inspector Gadget
I still remember the day I realized that Penny was the one who actually solved all the cases. It just wasn't the same after that. I felt sorry for Penny having to put up with such a moron, and it took the fun out of the show for me.
La la la la la la, la la la la la....the best cartoon ever!
