When I was younger cartoons were the center of my world, I got the toys, the movies, and more often then not the weapons that were in the series. My favorite toy being Lion-O’s sword of Thundera, yeah those were good times. Having a 7 year old nephew has shown me that cartoons nowadays aren’t what they used to be, and the ones that could be fun to watch are too adult for a 7 year old to really get. You don’t really have any leeway either, the show is either some teen show or a little kid show, I remember having Thundercats, Voltron, and my numerous superhero shows to watch. Thankfully someone heard the pleas of the younger and older generations wanting something to be that middle ground and in the next few years re-vamped versions of a few old favorites are coming out as well as a few new superhero shows that could very well be amazing. A new Thundercats, a new Voltron, and two brand new DC superhero series Green Lantern and Young Justice have all been announced in the last few months for 2011 or 2012. Seeing this makes my nerd heart happy simply enough for the chance that my nephew might now receive the gift of amazing cartoons, well that and a whole series about Green Lanterns will hopefully be pretty amazing.
Are you happy about all the new cartoons coming out? Which one looks the best? Which old cartoon was your favorite?
