Top 5 Cartoon Characters

This week’s Listography is a goody, “top 5 cartoon characters from your youth.” Here we go…

Inspector Gadget
The theme tune went like this “Do do-do do do Inspector Gadget.” I have a clear memory of riding on the back of a ute with a friend who sang, “do do-do do do Inspector your gadget.” It was probably the funniest, rudest thing I had ever heard. The poor guy, I made him sing it for the rest of the afternoon.  I doubt he is reading this, but if he is – I’m sorry.  But you did make me laugh.

“Go go gadget bottle of wine!” Ah you’ve got to dream, don’t you.

What girl didn’t want to be Penny?
No-one wanted to be Brain.  Then again, he was a dog.

Danger Mouse
He’s amazing, he’s fantastic, whenever there is danger he’ll be there… although have the makers of Danger Mouse ever seen a real mouse? I’m struggling to see where they found their inspiration.

Wilma Flintstone
In truth, I could have picked anyone from The Flintstones. How can you not love them? But I picked Wilma. No-one carried off a white one-shoulder everyday dress quiet like her.

Wile E Coyote
Let’s face it, he didn’t exactly have an IQ to be proud of, did he? But he made up for idiocy with persistence.

Astro Boy
I really don’t get why I was so into Astro Boy. It just doesn’t seem very me. But I was also into hot pink taffeta, so times have changed.

What would make your list?

This November, I’m writing one post every day as part of NaBloPoMo.
