Q & A #18

This is the most interesting question I've ever gotten. So far. Editor's note: I meant to publish this on Monday the 28th. C'est la vie!

Q: What is your favorite cartoon character?

A: Right now? SpongeBob SquarePants. Never can get enough of Patrick's antics. Always amuses me to no end that SpongeBob turns to Patrick for help/answers.

I used to follow Avatar: The Last Airbender until it concluded. Surprisingly deep story arcs in there. Yes, I was disappointed in the live action many things were thrown out and the movie felt rushed or the dialogue seemed out of place.

Iroh is played by a thin actor? Please, someone get Sammo Hung or a fat actor trained in martial arts. Cliff Curtis as the Fire Lord? He didn't look imposing at all. The actor playing General Zhao didn't look like he had watched the series at all. Not menancing at all or even...clever.

When I was a kid, I loved to wake up and catch my Saturday cartoons. Never got enough of Tom & Jerry or The Looney Tunes. Even Popeye was entertaining. As I went through the 80's, I'd run home to watch Thundercats or Voltron (I got confused when it was suddenly "different" and lost interest, not knowing it was in a different universe).

When I went away to college, I lived for Reboot and Batman. Stopped watching Batman when he sported a triangular torso frame.

Since my kids are grown, I haven't watched SpongeBob however, you can't help but know who he is! Ren & Stimpy and Daria were adult favs of mine.

There's something that brings out the childhood giggles when you watch cartoons.

Nitebyrd - I know exactly what you mean. (Giggling)

I never watched Ren & Stimpy (too weird to be understood without closed captioning) and Daria was clever but bit too dry to my taste.

Sponge is ok, but YES the first two seasons of Batman the animated series are incredible.

If you haven't seen Phineas & Ferb, you gotta check it out. Hilarious, even though every show has the same plot line. Season 1, 2, & 3 are on Netflix instant.

3GirlKnight - oh, I watch Phineas and Ferb. The ladies LOVE the show. I know exactly what you mean about the plot line. Don't knock works. ;)
