Cartoon Characters that have defined my childhood years.
My early years 5 to about 12
My First memories of cartoons were from about five years old.
The very first character I can recall was Mickey mouse. His wife Minnie with her Polka dot bows. They were a strange family with Goofy and Horace
My next memories were of Donald Duck. His appendage Daggy and his nephews Huey, dewey and llouis. I adored Scrooge Mcduck and his vaults of money
Wile E Coyote
My next memories of cartoon characters were the Wile E Coyote series where he was always pitted against the road runner and never succeeded
Nancy and Sluggo
Nancy and Sluggo (I was about 10 years old at this time)
My later years were defined by Nancy and Sluggo cartoons
Litlle Lulu featured in my life at this time too (I was about 10 at the time).
I also enjoyed Little Lulu at this time more particular as she ahd a weight challenged friend Tubby. I too had a friend who was a bit tubby so I could really relate to this carton.!.
Archie Veronica and co.
As I grew older I related to Archie, Veronica and Co. More the comics than the cartoons and the Archies became a phenomena of the seveties which applied more to my children than me. However, I could relate to them.
Archie Veronica and Co.
So this really A call back past with a couple of reminiscences
My second Childhood 1980 - Present
As A young adult and older adult bringing up children the Simpsons has had a special poignancy for me. My kids saw me as Homer, My ex as Marge and my eldest son and youngest daughter as Bart and Lisa respectively. This cartoon has had a defining number of years in my life
