At that time, when LazyTown was new, I was a single parent to a couple of toddlers. So during daytime, they would watch children's television shows, and when I'm not busy doing housework or cooking, I would watch with them.
I've always like to think that Robbie, despite wanting to be lazy, is the most busiest villain ever! He does his own hard work, compared to your usual typical run-of-the-mill movie villains who tend to have henchmen doing the work.
Example: Blofeld just sitting in a chair, petting his white cat, while the henchmen are doing the work, in the James Bond movies.
But, not Robbie, he's a villain alright, but he's willing to get the job done himself. That's what I love about LazyTown.
For me, favourite shows when I was a kid? I would say, mostly Bugs Bunny.
I had a LOT but probably ones on pbs kids like martha speaks and wordgirl, soo many shows on qubo likes jane and the dragon and jacob two two, and disney channel shows like that's so raven and zack and cody. AALL those shows are still hella good in my opinion
I grew up watching a lot of antenna TV shows. Mostly watch PBS and Qubo. My favorite shows where Arthur, Cyberchase, World Girl, Clifford, Curious Geroge, Between The Lions, The Ruff Ruff Man Show, Jacob Two-Two, Jane and the Dragon, Dragon's Tail, Maya & Miguel, Miss BG, and show much more!
Digimon Adventure, Yu-Gi-Oh, Dragon Ball, Inuyasha, Ruroni Kenshin, Yu-yu-Hakusho, Saint Seiya, Card Captor Sakura & Pokemon. I loved anime back then, but I don't like most of the current shows, lol. ❤
It feels like most "older fans" have trouble adjusting to the "newer stuff", me included. The only anime I'm still following are: Boruto (because of Naruto), Digimon (Cov-Reaper sucks, lol), Pokemon (barely), DB Super (DBZ). In other words, NOT A SINGLE "newer franchise", lol. But I can't say it's a BAD thing, truly.
Exactly! I think there's a very curious gap between the 80's, 90's & early 00's series and the current ones. I don't know why, but clearly something has changed. 😶 I think the newest thing I see and like is Attack on Titan, because I haven't seen most of the new versions/seasons of my favorite retro animes (the last Pokémon season I saw was Johto, lol) and the few I watched (like DBS & Digimon Tri) had a few remarkable details, but I found them to be largely boring. 😓
I hate AoT, but it's more of an emotional reason than quality-wise. It's funny that my last Pokemon season was also Johto, with me only coming back to the franchise because of Serena being quite literally Pokenata (and that being the ONLY reason I even cared to check it again). And Tri/Super/Boruto are simply "newer seasons of old franchises" in the first place.
I mostly follow the AoT manga, but the plot has given me several headaches from time to time (lol), so I get your point. XD The Johto opening theme was really nice, I can still sing it 20 years later, ha ha. 😂
When I was REALLY little I loved Thomas the Tank Engine. The farthest back I remember really intentionally watching something would probably be Dragon Ball Z. I think Cartoon Network had a block of Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon that I would watch.
I loved Maggie and the Ferocious Beast, and Bear in the Big Blue House, and Kipper the Dog. As I entered my teens and decided cartoons were boring it was Phineas and Ferb, which was what encouraged me to come to deviantART in the first place.
I like watching children's cartoons even now, though. When I'm really stressed and need to zone out it's good to just lie there and watch cartoons, without really having to think about anything. Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom is my favourite. I think it's made for like, six year olds, but it's lowkey alright.
The only show I remember from around that time would have been Reboot. Although technically it was less a favourite and more scary for some reason, and I only really appreciated it later when I found a DVD set of all four seasons somewhere
