Posts Tagged ‘Cartoon Network’

I have two cousins around the age of 9 and 4.  When they come visit me [or I come visit them from college], I, my parents, and my uncle and aunt have found television a great way to pacify them.  As cruel and demeaning to them as it sounds, I’m sure my parent readers know what it’s like to require some peace and quiet.  But when I don’t feel old enough to talk to my parents and uncles and aunts [although I’m 20, so I feel as though I should], more than often, I sit with them to see what’s still running on good old Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network these days.  Truth be told, I’m pretty disgusted in what flies as acceptable for cartoon shows these days.  Things like this Gumball show or Chowder, what have you.  I don’t identify with any of it.  But I’m probably as disgusted as my parents were when I turned on shows like Spongebob and Fairly Odd Parents in the 2000s, and even shows like Doug and Rockos Modern Life in the 90s.  Regardless, despite the childish aspect of some of these cartoon shows, there are a couple of respectable cartoon shows that, while catered to children, also capture my interest due to themes only adults would get and character/story development that goes far beyond the minds of the targeted demographic.  Below I’ve compiled 5 cartoon shows that are catered to mostly children and my explanations as to why a 20 year old like myself would totally still watch it.

Adam Withers got a commission [got paid to visualize an idea] to draw this collection of cartoon intellects.  When I originally saw this image, I could only identify about half, Velma, Dexter, Edd, and Nigel Uno.  When I visited his deviantart page, I soon realized that Jimmy Neutron is stud in the leather biker jacket.  The other two are apparently from TV shows called Daria and Johnny Test which I think we’re a little after my time.  Regardless, this is a genius collection of  cartoon intellects that with they’re combined knowledge, they could create world peace…or the means to destroy it.

Samurai Jack is one of the few Cartoon Network series that I see as entertainment for adults.  Had it not been on Cartoon Network, Jack could have been incredibly badass and not only limited to slicing robots.  I have compiled deviantarts take on Samurai Jack.  Interestingly enough, this could’ve been a character profile for Jack’s Nemesis, Aku.  Check out the gallery below.
