Have No Fear, Underdog is Here!

We got a care package in the mail yesterday. My fabulous sister sent a box full of goodies. First and foremost she took care of her little sis by picking up sheer curtains at IKEA for $4.99 A PAIR! Can you believe it??!! We don't have an IKEA here, so she graciously offered to buy them in beautiful (but waaaay too cold for me) St. Paul and ship them to me. I'm going to hang them in our screened-in porch. Slowly my vision of an all white, shabby chic porch is becoming a reality.

Anyway, along with the curtains there was a DVD collection of the old Underdog cartoons. I don't think I've seen this cartoon since I was a kid. I know a movie version is coming out in August, which my 5 year old is dying to see. We'll have to wait to see the reviews because we usually only go to G movies.

We're going to the mountains this weekend and we're going to save the Underdog cartoons for the ride. I'm so excited to see the kids reactions! I know they're going to be thrilled.

Although, I liked Underdog, I think my favorite cartoon growing up was Josie and the Pussycats. I could, however, spend hours talking about my favorite Saturday morning shows from when I was a kid (I was a little bit addicted - it's ok, I've been through Schoolhouse Rock Rehab). I had soooo many favorites.

What cartoons/Saturday morning shows did you love to watch?

It so funny you mentioned this. Just this past week we got some movies at the library and my son chose "Underdog is Here!" (the collector's edition). And he love it. Almost too much. He picked it for our family party night and after about two episodes I was Underdogged out. I loved it as a kid though. Sigh. Those were the good ole days.

I loved the old Loony Tunes! Good ole Bugs Bunny. Scooby Doo and Yogi Bear were faves, too.

Your sister is a sweetie.

While I loved Underdog, and love,love,loved Josie and the Pussycats...I had an unhealthy obsession with Johnny Quest as a child. It was on every day after school and I would run home to watch it...Is that Scary?
