As a child I was always fascinated by the idea of the kids cartoon.
I’ve loved the way cartoons in the late 80s and 90s were such a different kind of media.
Kids cartoons were more about fun, and there was something very special about watching your favourite cartoonist’s artwork being made into a cartoon.
There was something about that feeling of watching the work of your favourite artists and seeing it in action.
It was a time when animation was a whole new thing, and it was amazing how many of us had an idea of what a cartoon should be.
In those early days, it was just about the fun.
In the early years of the 21st century, it’s about the craft, and we’re all proud to have worked on some of the most amazing animation of all times.
But what I loved about cartoons in those early years was the fact that it wasn’t just about fun.
It wasn’t about getting kids to laugh at themselves.
It had to be a serious effort, a commitment to make sure the work was well thought out and that the visuals were very clear.
It needed to be realistic, but also playful, and have an emotional connection to the viewer.
It also had to have some sort of visual impact, to feel like the character you were watching was doing something in the real world.
That’s what animation was all about at that time, and that’s what cartoons are today.
The craftsmanship and the artistry are all there.
There’s a reason we call them kids cartoons, and they’re so good.
We can’t really get too much right about them.
You’ll see a lot of kids cartoons from the late 90s and early 2000s, but there’s always room for improvement.
It’s the best cartoons of the late 20s, early 30s and 40s, with some of those great artists still making them.
