Do you like cartoons and animated films? Well, I really do and they’re my personal favorite means of entertainment. When I was young, I would always rush home from school to see my personal favorite animation character on TV. In this modern day and age, animation is significantly more sophisticated. The painstakingly hand drawings of the last decade has been replaced by computer aided images. Nevertheless, I still like everything whether is the lush colors of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves or the latest state of the art Pixar creation. The creative invention of the animation character is the main thing for me. I like characters that are presented well with good characterization and story.
Top Cat, Yogi Bear, Popeye and other shows gripped my imagination when I was young. The animation character of Top Cat, or TC, as he was known to his friends, is certainly one of my favorites. He ruled over his alleyway, was the king of his gang and ran rings round the local cops. Top Cat introduced me to the thought of anarchy. However, my mother was disappointed when my devotion to Popeye did not cause a love of spinach.
Tom and Jerry still plays today and is essentially the most enduring of the old cartoons. The slapstick that characterizes this show translates into any language anime boob mouse pad. Adults appear to like this type of animation character around the kids do. I also loved the Pink Panther series when he was such a cool dude, and I liked the jazz score that played on his show.
The kind of animation character that went against authority, the rebel or anti-hero was my favorite. They were a contrast to the goody two shoes that typically filled a Disney film. However, Disney had great villains too, such as the wonderful Cruella da Ville from 101 Dalmatians. She must be the greatest baddie cartoon character of time. Young children today are still probably afraid of her character.
There are also some very nice TV animated series around in the current day and age. For example, the Simpsons is an amazing success story. It’s remarkable that it has maintained its high standard over many years. Its cultural and political references are entertaining and I believe adults have more from the jawhorse than kids.
There are animation character shows that are openly targeted at a grown-up audience. The Family Guy and King of the Hill are good examples. These adult oriented shows have a great deal to say about American society. Animators can do plenty of satire by having an animation character. They could also make them say things that real people wouldn’t dare to say.
