I’m a big fan of nostalgia. I think that’s why I enjoy shows like The Nostalgia Critic and Angry Video Game Nerd, people telling what they enjoyed in the past, whether it be from television or gaming, is an automatic win to me. That’s one of the reasons why I created that Top Ten List. Well, that and the fact that I heard that Top Ten List are an easy ways to gain viewers. But I have recently found out that the host of a few of my favorite podcasts, Dame Dr. Foxy Brown, has posted a blog responding to my Top Ten List. And I’m loving it; like I said, I love hearing about what cartoons people loved. I just have moments like, “Cool, I liked that show too” or “Aww man, I thought I was the only one who liked that show.” If you want to read her blog post yourself:

 The Cartoons that Shaped Me or My Cartoons are Better than Yours Part 1

And that’s just part one, it looks like she has some more up her sleeves. I know we all have different taste when it comes to television and the like, so I look forward to what other shows she has in store.

Once again, it’s time for a Weckyboy Moment. Where I talk about what’s on the top of my mind at the moment.

Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana, she is a terrific actress. And she’s hot too, I might add. But people, why do you pronounce her name as “Zoey,” when it clearly should be pronounced “Zoh.” I mean, when you read the name Joe, you don’t pronounce it as “Joey” do you? So please people, when you are pronouncing her name, say “Zoh.”

This has been a Weckyboy Moment.

I have seen a lot of cartoons, but there are only a handful that I can call my favorites. “What are they?” You may ask, well I’ll tell you. These are my top ten favorite cartoons. But before I go on with the list, there are a few cartoons that didn’t quite make the list, but I would still like to give them an honorable mention.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

FILMORE

This cartoon took everything a person could love about shows like Law and Order, and turned it into a cartoon and made it about kids in safety patrol. This show was awesome, but it didn’t make the list.

DARKWING DUCK

Another really good show.

BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES

I know I’m gonna get a lot of hell for this one, but yeah, it didn’t make the list. This was an awesome show, but the reason it wasn’t added to the list will be explained later.

Now I could go on like this showing all the cartoons I wish were added, but I think I should just get on with the list.

MY TOP TEN

NUMBER TEN:

GARGOYLES

Now I know what you’re thinking, “What the hell, how did Gargoyles make the list but not Batman?” Well I was more invested in the characters of Gargoyles than I was with Batman. As awesome as Batman was, the show was kinda episodic. And in Gargoyles, characters evolve and take twist that most of the time I didn’t see coming. And that kept me coming back for more.

NUMBER NINE:

HOME MOVIES

I can’t explain why I love this show. I just f***ing do!

NUMBER EIGHT:

AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER

I loved this show from beginning to end. It’s story telling done right.

NUMBER SEVEN:

XIAOLIN SHOWDOWN

It was shows like this that gave you a reason to turn on your TV on Saturday mornings.

NUMBER SIX:

EEK THE CAT (TERRIBLE THUNDER LIZARDS/KLUTTER)

A hilarious show, that proves that it never hurts to help. Except when it does.

NUMBER FIVE:

ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE

One of, if not, the best Nickelodeon cartoon.

NUMBER FOUR:

SEALAB 2021

The funniest thing that ever came out of Adult Swim on Cartoon Network.

NUMBER THREE:

THE WEEKENDERS

To me, this cartoon reminds me a lot of Nickelodeon’s Doug, except done better. I really enjoyed this show.

NUMBER TWO:

DAVE THE BARBARIAN

This is the second best cartoon I have ever seen, it’s terrible how it didn’t really last that long. I demand someone make a complete series DVD of this cartoon!

AND MY NUMBER ONE FAVORITE CARTOON IS:

ED, EDD, AND EDDY

The best cartoon I have ever seen. This show was hilarity at its finest. I really hope this cartoon gets the same treatment as Power Puff Girls, and gets a complete series DVD. If they ever do, I would definitely get it.

And those are my top ten favorite cartoons. I really enjoy the funny cartoons over the action cartoons, and I think it shows here on this list. And I don’t know how I’m going to end this blog post, so I’ll just end it on this clip:

A while back, it had came to my attention that there is a bit of One Piece merchandise available in Japan that I would love to get my hands on. When it comes to anime merchandise, things likes models or character figures don’t really get my attention (I must admit, I’m a sucker for a well made poster though). But nice anime clothing is something that would definitely catch my attention. When I was younger I use to rock a Dragon Ball Z t-shirt any chance I could, up until I out grew it. So when I saw these:

One Piece fitted caps

I wanted to know how can I get one, where can I find these? Especially the Luffy cap, that’s the one I’m really looking for, although the Chopper cap is good too. And so I began to search through the inter-webs for these items,  and besides a few Japanese websites, the search came up dry. But I am still keeping an eye out for these caps, I’m hoping sites like JList; which are known for having Japanese items like this, will have them available one day. Until then, the search continues.
