Cartoons are Not Just for Kids!

By Cody Subscribe to RSS | December 14th 2011 | Views:

As a child you would have never slept even for a day without watching cartoons. Here is a short rewind of the emergence of cartoons. The term Cartoon originated in the 19th century. Those days, it was used to refer to a piece of drawing or painting on the wall, stained glass, or tapestry. The word cartoon was primarily used to describe humorous illustrations that featured in magazines and newspapers. In the late 1980’s, the word “cartoon” was condensed to “toon”. The term ‘cartoon’ in the 20th century is being used to refer to comic strips and animated movies.

Cartoons are not only popular among the kids but also among the older people. There are many genres of cartoons like adventurous, humorous, romantic, and also ghost oriented cartoons with a bit of humor. The specialty of cartoons is that it includes a slew of interesting characters. Some of the most popular cartoons that entail animal characters are Tom and Jerry, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Bugs Bunny, Tweety, Garfield, Pluto, and Bambi. Some of the popular super hero cartoons are Super Man, Spider Man, He Man, Bat Man, and Super Friends. And there are also cartoons that come with a moral. By watching moral cartoons, we tend to get a pessimistic view of life. Most of the cartoons on those lines were filmed based on stories that were very popular during our grandma’s time.

The good thing about cartoons is that they are family gathering shows and you can watch them with your kids and family. For children, watching cartoons helps to develop creativity. Children can also improve their personality by admiring their favorite super hero characters. Cartoons help to enhance our self-esteem. By improving self-esteem, one can face challenges confidently and be happy in life. It’s also fun watching cartoons. If you feel bored up, catching a glimpse of your favorite cartoon show can be a good pastime. The peppy music of cartoons gives relaxation and joy to the mind. A recent study proved that children who watch cartoons have greater problem-solving abilities than those who don’t watch cartoons. It helps kids to develop their drawing skills at a very young age itself.

In the late 1960’s, cartoon books were just giveaways, thanks to the dealer. One example of such a giveaway is Think Small. These days, you can find the reprints of old cartoons in newspapers and magazines. As a result of their popularity, cartoons found their way into the homes of the audience in the form of Video games, books, and movies long back.

Cartoon shows like Tom and Jerry, Spider man, and Super man dominated the television world throughout the 80’s and 90’s. One of my favorite cartoons is Tom and Jerry. It’s an interesting animated cartoon which deals with a never-ending rivalry between a cat and a mouse. The cat (Tom) chases the mouse (Jerry) and it’s interesting to see how the little mouse comes up with its plans to escape from the cat. This cartoon was a worldwide hit. Tom and Jerry is notably a winner of several awards. It’s a seven time winner of the Academy Award for Animated Short Film.

Enjoying a cartoon is as simple as renting or buying a DVD and playing it on your player. However, there are TV channels that run a slew of cartoon shows throughout the day.

All right, guys! I’ve already come up with my plan for the weekend. I’m planning to watch some of my favorite cartoons on Cartoon Network with my TV powered by ATT UVerse Cable connection. So, what are you guys waiting for? Snuggle on your couch, have pop corn and enjoy your day
