Oh man, where to start with Helga. So first of all her family is the definition of dysfunctional. Her dad is a bully and a control freak, her mom is an alcoholic (context clues) who is pretty neglectful and they both love Helga’s older, brilliant sister, Olga, more than Helga. She clearly doesn’t know how to handle emotions properly since she can’t help but lash out and deride people she loves, like Arnold and sometimes even her bestie Phoebe. Even when her parents show her some love, it is so short lived. No wonder Helga’s so grouchy all the time.
That You Can’t Have it All: Charlotte Pickles is the bomb. She’s a feminist, working woman and mom. But the show makes her seem like an absent mother who cares about her career more than her daughter. Why can’t Charlotte be a leader in her company AND be there for Angelica? It’s definitely possible.
THE EPISODE WHERE CHUCKIE SWALLOWS THE WATERMELON SEED IS BUILT ON NIGHTMARES.
Doug was almost called ‘The Funnies’! Nickelodeon changed the series name to Doug because they weren’t into the double entendre. Good call, Nick. Good call.
While The Wild Thornberrys definitely didn’t turn me into a nature girl, this show is formative in a way that other old cartoon favorites aren’t. It unintentionally led me to retain a ton of information about animals that I normally wouldn’t bother researching. Seriously, it’s almost funny how many things about animals and ecosystems and the environment that I remember to this day thanks to that show! And on the less educational front, I wanted to be Debbie Thornberry so badly
Sid’s outfit is my favorite!
We’ve all had a cartoon crush. Admit it.
My favorite post from today. How to dress like a ’90s Nicktoon! So cool!
He might not look like much in his old baseball hat, but T.J. has the potential to be a total babe when he gets older. He was my hero as a kid, always going against the rules of school and adults. I mean, nobody doesn’t like T.J. – he makes sure of that.
