Cartoon Network


I grew up in Accra, Ghana in my early years. On GTV (national television), Cartoon Network was sometimes aired for the best of my pleasure. I remember after school, I would sit there and enjoy some afternoons with colorful characters instead of studying.

Well, out of some nostalgia from those periods of insouciance and farniente, I tried to recollect the programs I use to watch. Those programs fueled me with plenty of ideas, some understanding of the world. Sometimes for the good, and sometimes for worse.

I started listing the intros of some programs I could remember.:

Johnny Bravo

U follow this guy, Johnny, who babysits his niece while hitting on women. Sighs…

The Jetsons

Kinda sounds like simpsons.

Scooby Doo

No need to expand on that.

Top Cat

I loved TC. Always able to fall on his feet.

Ed Edd n’ Eddy

Three crazy brothers….

Captain Planet

A bunch of students covering the human impact on environment and invoking Captain planet to solve everything.

Swat Kats

HHAHA, My brother (used to) love this program.

Powerpuff girls

One of my favorite. Mogogogo was a great evil character.

Dexter’s Laboratory

Made me believe in technology. Even if Dexter was actually evil.

Samurai Jack

Out of words. Flawless

Closing Notes

When 90s Nostalgia kicks in…

Those programs give some insights on the period they were aired on: Climate change, technology, war, and family were recurring themes.
