There are kids tv-shows which you’ll always remember. For me Disneklubben and Disneydags are two of those shows. Disneydags (disney time) was a swedish version of The Disney Afternoon which aired pretty much the same cartoons.
Just as when it comes to Disney movies I think the Disney cartoons of the early nineties are much better than the ones of today. Of course that might not be the case in actuality because however young in mind I am I still can’t apprechiate a cartoon today in the same way I did almost twenty years ago.
Anyway, you guys remember Tale spin, Duck Tales, Rescue Rangers, Adventures of the Gummi Bears and Tiny Toons? Then there was also Quack Pack and Goof Troop but by the time those shows were aired I at least pretended I was too old to care about cartoons. Even though I watched a few episodes here and there early weekend mornings.
Out of these shows Duck Tales was my absolute favourite. I mean, a robot duck and a neaderthal, can it get any more exciting?! For a eight year old, apparantly not, since I still remember the exact voice of Bubba.
You know what? I’m actually gonna try to find Duck Tales online and re-watch a couple of episodes. I’m afraid I might be disappointed but actually I think I won’t be. After all, I still love Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and the Little Mermaid.
There’s something about things you loved when you were a kid. I still prefer the old Narnia movies to the new ones. That’s really not logical since I know the new versions really are better. At least when you look at the special effects, because the effects of the old movies are really, really awful. Still, there’s something about the old movies which the new ones doesn’t capture. The fact that Aslan looks like a stuffed lion stolen from some kind of wildlife museum in the old versions doesn’t bother me much since I thought he looked very real when I was seven. That’s what I grew up with and that’s what I love. No amount of CGI can change that.
