Watched the Transformers movie today. Had forgotten why I love Optimus Prime so much. Remember now. The dude rocks. Was in serious need to sniffle when he died *sniffle* But damn, the film is awesome. Already want to re-watch it again.

If you haven't gathered it yet Transformers was one of my favourite childhood cartoon series (it might possibly still be one of my fav series). Beyond it there were several other cartoon series that made my childhood that much more memorable. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Go Shogun, the Wizard of Oz (Return to Oz?) French anime that got down right nasty near the end, the Odyssey (once again, I believe it was French and set in Space), and of course She-ra (kick arse woman, she was so much cooler than He-man, never liked the guy much).

The above series were possibly my most memorable moments from my childhood. They drove my imagination to the point were I was running around the place weilding plastic swords/guns proclaiming I was going to save the world. This, was of course, in between me trying to find my way home (usually Earth), meeting alien races (who always looked like humans), stopping intergalactic wars (by killing the bad guys), and developing friendships that would last me through the age (often with the mentioned aliens). I was a very busy hero. Hmm, if you think about it, I was writing fanfiction in my head and acting them out long before I ever discovered what fandom was.

But yes, they made my life all the richer when Play School (American, Australian or the Chinese equivalent), live hosts for children shows, and people in puppet suit pissed me off. Just because I was four didn't mean I couldn't tell the difference between someone real from a badly made suit, or that someone was purposely speaking slowly to me as if I didn't have the brain capacity of a gold fish. The Teletubies would have met a horrible end if I had ever met them. The only 'educational' show that I could remotely stand was 'Sesame Street' and even then it had to be a very limited amount.

Even as a child I needed the angst, the action, and the over-arching, melodramatic plot-lines that made some of my favourite cartoon series favourite in the first place. So, what are your childhood nostalgic series? And what were your pet peeves? Share.

And a quiz;

What (yaoi) anime pairing are you?

this quiz was made by Eike and Mirai

Don't ask. I don't know. This is like the ultiamte crack couple.
