Do You Remember These Cartoons When You Were A Kid?

Prepare to be transported back to a time of Saturday morning TV and cherished childhood memories!

For many of us, these six animated shows still hold a special place in our hearts. So let's take a nostalgic trip down memory lane - do you remember all of these?

1. Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! (1969-1970):

Long before modern remakes and live-action adaptations, "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!" introduced audiences to the lovable Great Dane, Scooby-Doo, and his mystery-solving gang, including Fred, Velma, Daphne, and Shaggy. The original classic series from Hanna-Barbera series followed the gang as they investigated supernatural mysteries, always revealing that the monsters were nothing more than clever disguises. The show's catchy theme song, comical antics, and spooky adventures made it an enduring favourite among generations of children.


2. ThunderCats (1985-1989):

"ThunderCats" transported viewers to the world of Third Earth, where a group of humanoid cat-like aliens fought against the forces of evil. Led by the noble Lion-O, the ThunderCats battled the wicked Mumm-Ra and his minions, using their incredible powers and iconic weapons. This action-packed animated series captured imaginations with its epic battles, memorable characters, and themes of friendship and bravery.


3. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987-1996):

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" brought the crime-fighting adventures of Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo to British screens. The four pizza-loving turtles, trained in the art of ninjutsu by their wise rat sensei, Splinter, battled against the nefarious Shredder and his Foot Clan. With its unique blend of humour, action, and catchy catchphrases, this animated series became a cultural phenomenon, inspiring toys, merchandise, and even a live-action film franchise.


4. The Simpsons (1989-present):

"The Simpsons", of course, needs no introduction. This long-running animated sitcom created by Matt Groening follows the misadventures of the dysfunctional Simpson family - Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie alongside the residents of Springfield. With its sharp social commentary and lovable characters, "The Simpsons" has become an integral part of popular culture. Spanning over three decades, the show continues to entertain audiences with its satirical take on family life and its countless memorable episodes.


5. The Flintstones (1960-1966):

"The Flintstones" takes us back to the Stone Age, where the modern Stone Age family - Fred and Wilma Flintstone, and their neighbours, Barney and Betty Rubble - navigate everyday life with prehistoric flair. This animated sitcom, set in the fictional town of Bedrock, delighted British audiences with its clever puns, iconic catchphrases, and imaginative stone-age inventions. "The Flintstones" laid the foundation for future animated sitcoms and remains an iconic classic.


6. Danger Mouse (1981-1992):

"Danger Mouse" is a British animated series that introduced viewers to the heroic adventures of the titular secret agent mouse and his trusty sidekick, Penfold. Together, they fought against various villains, most notably the dastardly Baron Greenback.
