Do you like cartoons and animated films? Well, I do and they are the best means of entertainment. When I was young, I would always rush home from school to see the best animation character on TV. In this contemporary and age, animation is a lot more sophisticated. The painstakingly hand drawings of the final decade has been replaced by computer aided images. Nevertheless, I still like everything whether is the lush colors of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves or the newest state of the art Pixar creation. The creative invention of the animation character is the main thing for me. I prefer characters which can be presented well with good characterization and story.
Top Cat, Yogi Bear, Popeye and other shows gripped my imagination when I was young. The animation character of Top Cat, or TC, as he was known to his friends, is one of my favorites. He ruled over his alleyway, was the king of his gang and ran rings round the local cops. Top Cat introduced me to the thought of anarchy. However, my mother was disappointed when my devotion to Popeye did not lead to a love of spinach.
Tom and Jerry still plays today and is the most enduring of the old cartoons. The slapstick that characterizes this show results in any language. Adults seem to such as this sort of animation character as much as the youngsters do 3D Mouse Pad. I also loved the Pink Panther series because he was this kind of cool dude, and I liked the jazz score that played on his show.
The sort of animation character that went against authority, the rebel or anti-hero was my favorite. They certainly were a contrast to the goody two shoes that usually filled a Disney film. However, Disney had great villains too, such as the wonderful Cruella da Ville from 101 Dalmatians. She has to be the best baddie cartoon character of all time. Small kids today are still probably afraid of her character.
Additionally, there are some good TV animated series around in the present day and age. For instance, the Simpsons is a fantastic success story. It is remarkable that it has maintained its high standard over many years. Its cultural and political references are entertaining and I think adults get more from it than kids.
There are animation character shows which can be openly targeted at an adult audience. The Family Guy and King of the Hill are good examples. These adult oriented shows have too much to say about American society. Animators can perform lots of satire by having an animation character. They can also make them say issues that real people wouldn’t dare to say.
