Codename: Kids Next Door

First question: Who remembers this one?

Second question: Was this not the weirdest show ever?
Codename: Kids Next Door
This was a show about a group of kids who spend most of their time in a huge treehouse that is oddly hidden from adults. They go by numbers 1-5 and fight the strangest villains. They all have very different personalities, but somehow come together to fight and defeat anyone that opposes them. They have a knack for inventing huge contraptions to help in their villain catching.
This show has a 7.2/10 on IMDb, with a rating of 96% of google users likes this TV show.It ran from 2002-2008 with 6 seasons.

Now the interesting stuff, there’s a conspiracy theory that the organization that the kids were apart of Kids Next Door, is all just one elaborate game that the kids are playing and we’re only seeing it as what the kids are pretending.

(I’m playing, you know, for research purposes.)

  •  Would you watch this show again as an adult?
    • Depending on how bored I am, yes.
  • With a rating system 1-10 (10 being the best) what would you rate this show now?
  • With a rating system 1-10 (10 being the best) what would you rate this show when you were a kid?
    • I would say still a 6, because it was interesting and I did watch it. Enough to remember the show at least, but it wasn’t a favorite of mine.

Teen Titans – NOT GO

This may be my most exciting blog post, due to the fact that this next show is still a favorite of mine. I’ll give you a hint, it features Boy Wonder in tights.

 

If you guessed Teen Titans then you are the winner on today’s blog post!

Now, don’t think that I’m mixing it up with that imposter of a show, Teen Titans GO.

No, I’m talking teenage wonder group with real problems and real solutions. The show features a team of five superheroes Robin, Beast Boy, Starfire, Cyborg, and Raven.

From just the internets opinion this show was a huge success. On IMDb it got 7.8/10 and has a 96% google user rating. It had 5 seasons and was unfortunately cancelled. There are multiple theories on why the show was abruptly cancelled, including that the female fanbase was too big. You can read the rest of the theories here:  http://emorywheel.com/teen-titans-the-show-that-got-prematurely-cancelled/.

 

Most of the show focused around the individual characters  beginnings and how they came to be who they are. Raven was the daughter of Trigon, essentially the devil and had to battle him throughout a season due to the fact that he tried to use her to take over the world for him.

Another couple episodes focused on how Cyborg came to have a half mechanical body and how he adjusted to it. Beast Boy was originally in a team called Doom Patrol where he eventually left due to the captions harsh ways. Starfire was a princess from an alien planet and had to fight her sister for the throne, which she eventually gave up in order to remain with her friends on earth. Through the seasons we got to see each character develop and solve their life threatening issues with their strength as friends.

 

Despite the theories, the show did have a very high female fan base due to the fact that the female characters were very badass. They weren’t shown as damsels in distress, but powerful women that were capable of saving their friends as well as themselves.

Finally, let’s answer our ending questions:

 

Would you watch this show again as an adult?

    • 100% yes. I rewatched the whole show this summer actually. It was still as amazing as it was when I was a child.

 

  • With a rating system 1-10 (10 being the best) what would you rate this show now?
    • I would rate this show at a 10, due to the badass females and the overall themes of the show.

 

  • With a rating system 1-10 (10 being the best) what would you rate this show when you were a kid?
    • I would rate this show at a 10, because I made time in my childhood to watch these shows. They gave me something to look forward to, and I always remember pretending I was Raven.

CatDog

I’m quite sure everyone will remember this week’s show. And due to that fact, I’m going to place the picture before the summary.

Ah, CatDog. This show had a 6.6/10 rating on IMDb and a 89% google user rating. CatDog ran from 1998-2005, with a grand total of 4 seasons. CatDog was a cartoon about a conjoined cat and, surprise, a dog. Granted, they had very different personalities which often lead to disasters. Cat was a very uptight type A animal(?), while Dog was very type B.

The show has two award nominations between the years 1998-2000. There’s a conspiracy theory that CatDog was a goverment experiment gone wrong. According to this article, http://www.teen.com/2015/09/18/television/catdog-fan-theories-hidden-messages/, CatDog is the result of scientist experimenting to see if a cat and dog could breed together. There’s also a theory that the duo were abandoned by their parents, if they had parents.

Personally, I was never a huge fan of the show. Nothing really clicked for me. It may of been due to the fact that the show was obviously expecting a male audience, or it could’ve just been me. I remember watching a few episodes, enough to get the idea.

 

While researching this cartoon, I did find the most perfect image.

You’re welcome.

 

Final questions:

 

  • Would you watch this show again as an adult?
    • No, for some reason just the thought of it makes me very uninterested and annoyed.

 

  • With a rating system 1-10 (10 being the best) what would you rate this show now?
    • I would rate this a 3? It wasn’t for me, that’s for sure. There never really seemed to be any real interesting themes or life lessons. (Now I sound like an uptight parent who only wants their kids watching educational TV)

 

  • With a rating system 1-10 (10 being the best) what would you rate this show when you were a kid?
    • 2. I rarely remember seeing this show and I can’t remember it making any difference in my childhood.

Rugrats?

Nostalgia, one of the most sought after emotions. This blog is dedicated to the one thing that brings every student in this classroom together, our love for our childhood cartoons.

Now, through the series of these blogs we’ll be discussing those cartoons that just have a special spot in our hearts. I’ll be digging up any conspiracy theories, fun facts, and opinions of all the shows. If you’re unaware of one of the cartoons, I’ll write a brief introduction at the beginning of each post to introduce you to the shows main concept.

 

Our first cartoon on the chopping block is a classic. Rugrats. We all know that we binged out on Rugrats as children, even if we don’t want to admit it.

Rugrats was the Nickelodeon’s longest running cartoon from 1994-2012, where it was then surpasses by Spongebob.  Rugrats was a show about numerous babies, Phil and Lil (the twins), Chuckie (red hair with green shorts), and Tommy (bald one in the middle), who were essentially trying to figure life out while growing up and enduring Angelica’s tormenting. Don’t get me wrong, these kids were smarter than your average toddler and usually found themselves in interesting situations.

 

By now everyone knows about the interesting conspiracy theory regarding the Rugrats.

And if you haven’t, here’s the link: http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Rugrats_Theory

 

The rugrats received a 92% approval rate, which I’m going to assume came from our generation. The show had 9 seasons that were such a success that there were three movies made, The Rugrats Movie, Rugrats Go Wild, and Rugrats in Paris: The Movie. I admit, I even watched these movies as a grown woman.

 

Once I grew up and rewatched an episode it was like being hit by a bus. Angelica’s mom was neglectful, so no wonder the little girl had so many issues. Chuckie never got over the loss of his mother, the twins were jealous of each other as normal twins are. All these things that I missed as a child just smacked me in the face.

 

It’s amazing what you remember when you look back at shows like Rugrats. Despite the time, everyone can still bond over our love for these diapered babies.

 

Finally, let’s answer some opinion based questions:

 

  • Would you watch this show again as an adult?
    • Most likely only out of sheer boredom or in the event that I’m babysitting.

 

  • With a rating system 1-10 (10 being the best) what would you rate this show now?
    • I would rate this show at a 7.5 due to the fact that the conspiracy theory is mind blowing.

 

  • With a rating system 1-10 (10 being the best) what would you rate this show when you were a kid?
    • I watched this a lot as a kid, but it was never my favorite, so I’d have to go with a 5. I was never SUPER excited to watch it, but I did watch it and was entertained.
