Sep 01, 2011 Cartoons: Old Vs. New My wife saw my blog last night about ThunderCats, and her response to my excitement in her future son’s voice, “Daddy I don’t want to watch old cartoons!” She might have a point. So, I now have a goal. I have to figure out how to get my little one to like what daddy likes. I will respect his choice of cartoons, but will he respect my cartoons? How can I convince him to be open minded enough to enjoy cartoons that I grew up with from the 80s such as Scooby Doo and GI Joe? To all my fans, do I even have a chance? Will my favorites cartoons even compete against shows such Sponge Bob or Bob the Builder?
