Every kid grew up watching cartoons. Cartoons are what truly makes a kid a kid and I still go back and re-watch episodes to this day. Every kid has a different cartoon that they call their favorite. Whether you grew up in the 60s or the early 2000s, you had one cartoon in your life that you just had to watch daily. I was definitely a toon head growing up and it was very hard to choose just 3 for this list.
3. Courage the Cowardly Dog
Courage the Cowardly Dog is probably one of the creepiest shows I have ever seen. This little purple dog in the middle of no where protecting his owners Eustace and Muriel from all of these creepy creatures was definitely an odd concept for a children's show. Oddly the show didn't affect me when I was younger but as I grew older and watched an episode, I instantly got chills. The monsters in this show are really disturbing and it makes me wonder how this show ever got aired on Cartoon Network. It is definitely one of my favorite cartoons but watch at your own psychological risk!
2. Ed, Edd, n Eddy
Continuing on with the creepy kid's show trend, Ed, Edd, n Eddy comes in at number 2 on the list. Ed, Edd, n Eddy is again one of those shows that is awesome when you are a kid, but kind of creeps you out when you are older. I still love Ed, Edd, and Eddy though, and anytime I see an episode on Tv I don't hesitate to flip to it and enjoy a big piece of my childhood. As odd as it may sound, Ed, Edd, n Eddy was one of the most influential shows in my life as a child and I will forever cherish it. I remember the last episode where we finally see Eddy's brother for the first time. I cried and was in a funk for a while. Luckily I can catch a few of the episodes on Netflix!
1. Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! (1969)
I was fortunate enough to grow up with the Boomerang channel available to me. Boomerang was essentially Cartoon Network's sister channel that specialized in airing classic cartoons. One of these classics happened to be Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! Scooby-Doo was hands down the biggest show in my life as a child. It was so great being able to grow up watching the same shows my parents used to watch every Saturday morning as kids. Scooby-Doo is again one of those cartoons you go back to and notice things that were a bit inappropriate. Looking back now I realize that Shaggy and Scooby were essentially just stoners and always had the munchies. Despite that, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! will always be considered one of the greatest cartoons of all time. Scooby-Doo is still relevant today so that just goes to show how legendary this show is. Scooby-Doo will definitely be a show I watch with my children.
