Today I thought it'll be a good day to share with you guys what were the cartoons I used to watch as a kid in the 90's. Yup, that's how lame this post is going to be, but of course you can bare through this! At least those readers, who are at the same age as I am.. you youngsters may not even recognize the cartoons at all. And it's kind of sad too, because nowadays' cartoons and kids' shows are lame and awful. I guess I'm starting to get old XD
This is the very rare exception, when I think the Finnish version of the theme song is way better than English.. I can't explain why, but of course it does have to do something small with the fact it's the first version I ever heard of Pokémon. Overall, I still love to watch the first two movies~ They both have such an awesome soundtrack I can't stop listening to them! Everyone knows the song "The Power of One"!
But honestly I can't remember almost anything about the plot itself.. I guess I missed so many episodes so the plot and dialogue were too absurd to me at the time.I might re-watch this series some day, with some popcorn and friends!
Biker Mice from Mars is obviously an American cartoon (and the target audience is actually little boys, but I still love it! I used to play them in kindergarten!), since the scenarios are located in Chicago. I totally recommend to watch this series as it was in the 90's! I still can't get over that electronic voice repeating "Biker Mice from Mars -- Biker Mice from Mars -- Biker Mice from Mars".. it was something so unique at that time and it can't be compared with anything! I still want Vinnie's red bike!
Also, the trio of Throttle, Vinnie and Modo has a bro-code, which you can totally sense while watching the show. Home-brewed beer, hot-dogs and more heavy metal to everyone! Brofist!
There are many more cartoons I used to watch as a kid, but I'm going to close this post with two animes.
The series itself is about a very naive girl and her life from an orphan baby to an adult. There's nothing much more to say, because there are tons of events she confronts during this series - well, it is a long time period after all. But, what bothers me, is that she keeps her naive attitude towards every f-ing person she confronts, even though they are complete douchebags right from the start. She does say what she thinks about things though.
And for last but not the least:
But that's for now! I'll leave you with a longer video with a Finnish dub song I totally like as it is. The original lyrics go "I need a hero" but in order to fit the lyrics in Finnish with the beat, they changed it into "I want a man". May I present you: Shrek 2 - Mä Miehen Tahdon
