10 Cartoon Shows that deserve a Reboot
Isn’t watching old classic cartoon shows one of your major guilty pleasures. The 90’s and early 2000’s kids’ lives were filled with joy and happiness because of several Cartoon shows that were iconic or gained legendary status later on. But seeing today’s popular shows makes us feel bad for the younger lot. The current lot of kids programs are nowhere close to the shows we watched in our childhood. It would be great if today’s generation (kids) get an opportunity to relive our childhood experiences through the iconic and popular shows we had watched in our childhood. So, here are 10 Cartoon Shows that deserve a reboot.
10 Cartoon Shows that deserve a Reboot
The first name in our list is DC’s animated tv series ‘Justice League’ which was telecasted on Cartoon Network in the mid 2000’s. The show may not be the most popular show of its time but it aged like a fine wine. With time its recall value escalated in the kids and teens of that era. With time the show has achieved an iconic status. The storylines of the Justice League series were very impressive and had depth. This is the reason many consider it as a benchmark for any Big screen or OTT storyline of any DC venture. Giving a reboot to this iconic show would be a great idea. It will definitely entertain the masses and can provide strength to DC’s on screen struggles.
Ed, Edd n Eddy
The trio of Ed, Edd n Eddy has to be one of the most popular and iconic trios in history cartoon shows. The comedy series follows the lives of the amazing & cool trio. The slapstick comedy cartoon show had an impressive and a decade long run on Cartoon Network. The trio of the Eds (Ed, Edd and Eddy) showcase how childhood should be lived and what true friends & friendship means. In today’s delusional world this fun storyline can provide the needed messaging and lessons to kids.
There are very few characters who are as iconic and popular as Johnny Bravo. The muscular dude kept on trying to charm girls with his physique, humor and personality but unfortunately he always failed to do so. Many may talk about the characters’ approach, humor and storyline, which is somewhat problematic in today’s time. But a reboot can fix the minor issues and provide a suited but same version of Johnny Bravo to current cartoon viewers.
Codename: Kids Next Door
Codename: Kids Next Door was a show about teens who live independently, follow their own set of rules. They have code names and go on missions to avoid the typical duties that teenagers or children are expected to do. Codename: Kids Next Door is a fun show where children take stand against anything that they feel is a burden and impacts their playful & fun years of childhood. Be it extra HomeWorks or doing house chores. This is one of the cartoon shows which needs to reboot. As it directly and indirectly teaches children to take a stand against things that they don’t like or approve.
The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy
The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy was one of the biggest hits of its time. The cartoon show gained immense popularity. The storyline of the4 show depicts an unusual trio of a strong & bossy girl, a witty & carefree guy and Grim (a creature who has access to supernatural items and powers). The trio are always on some weird adventure all thanks to Grim. This show also showcases frenship and its values. And gives us the message that different types of personalities too can stay together when there is true friendship.
Winnie the Pooh
Who won’t recognize Winnie the Pooh, the iconic cute bear. The character of Winnie the Pooh was created by the American author A.A.Milne. This Disney character has been around from the 60’s and is still relevant. Everyone recognizes Winnie the Pooh but the current lot aren’t aware of its storyline and depiction. A reboot of the cute character through a cartoon series would be incredible. As the current lot (Kids) will get an opportunity to witness cuteness and innocent humor of the bear.
If we talk about Winnie the Pooh and the 60’s how can we forget an iconic 60’s show ‘The Jetsons’. The show was a milestone program and is considered one of the most iconic shows of all time. The Jetsons showcased a storyline of a family and was set in the future. Yes, it showcased a timeline 100 years ahead of its timeline. Apart from being futuristic, the series was also known for its humour. Giving a reboot to The Jetsons can be a great idea. As new innovative future perspectives and thoughts can be added to the storyline.
Baby Looney Tunes
If there is any character who can match the cuteness and innocence of Winnie-the-Pooh, it has to be the cute characters of Baby Looney Tunes. Baby Looney Tunes showcased the iconic characters of Looney Tunes. In the cartoon series the cute and little Looney Tunes lived with Granny. The series was a fun show where all the little kids (Looney Tunes creatures) lived together. It can be a great cartoon show for kids to learn basic manners and habits. It also tells how to adjust with different kinds (personality) of people under one roof.
Courage The Cowardly Dog
This show had a separated fanbase. Courage The Cowardly Dog was one of the most unique cartoon shows of its time. It showcased a story line of a couple who live with their dog (Courage). The couple always come across some serious issue (mostly supernatural) and Courage saves them from all the troubles. On a surface level it may seem like a simple horror comedy kind of a show. But Courage The Cowardly Dog had a very layered storyline which was way ahead of its time. We definitely need a reboot of the dark horror comedy cartoon show.
Dexter’s Laboratory was one of the most popular shows out there and was a Cartoon Network classic. Most cartoon shows ment for kids are about superhumans, superheroes or are simple humorous tales. Many people feel that these shows affect the value system and fundamentals of kids. And generally we see that geeky characters are villains or are sidelined in kids shows. But Dexter’s Laboratory is about Dexter who’s a genius and very focused child. He’s always busy with his work and innovations. A reboot of the show can provide many kids a motivation to do innovations or explore more in life.
