I'm taking a trip down memory lane right now....

Write a poem, of any sort, having to deal with a favorite chilhood cartoon (i.e. Sesame Street, Muppet babies, carebears, smurfs, POPPLES!, you get the idea).  Then send it to me as a response....You'll find thinking bout childhood dreams makes you a little happier

*Dont forget to include what show it is for those of us who dont know all of them!

Exeryone makes mistake, learn from them and move on, because tomorrow we'll make more...

Where are all my replies....Im hurt.....heres mine

All the fun we had


Memories of days gone by
are everything but bad
Memories of childhood
of all the fun we've had
But one memory sticks out
Of my favorite pastime
For I love the Television
So this is my rhyme
Carebears, Fraggles, Rainbow bright
Muppets, and Sesame Street
I would watch my favorite shows
Sitting crosslegged on my feet
But my favorite TV show
was of little rolly creatures
that we would call popples
and they came with many features
I had a stuffed popple
It was purple I think
and It went everywhere with me
It was my missing link
But with age comes maturity
which makes me quite sad
for I miss my dear popple
and all the fun we had



Exeryone makes mistake, learn from them and move on, because tomorrow we'll make more...

Lisa...I'm glad you brought this thread back
to the top.  I had missed it before.  I love
cartoons, so I'll definitely have to see what
I can do with this idea.
Thanks for the challenge.
Hugs,
~Vicky

Oops...forgot to say that I love your poem.
Very cute...but who says we have to grow up? LOL
I simply refuse!
One of my favorite quotes says...

"You do not stop laughing because you grow old.  You grow old because you stop laughing."

Unfortunately, I can't remember, right now,
who the quote is from...but it's so true.
Thanks again for the challenge.
Now...I'm off to write of cartoons.

Here's my piece. I hope you like it.

I remember long ago
Flubbadubba Bill and Ben
If you mention Sweep and Sooty
I'll recall them once again

Sorry love you know I'm English?
Cartoon lore is not the same
But I remember Andy Pandy
We sang it as a children's game

In childhood dreams I laughed and played
Remembering times of way back when
I recall the little weed
My favourite one from Bill and Ben

And last not least there was Noddy
With his hat and jingly bell
His best friend was known as Big Ears
He taught him lots and taught him well.

But of all the shows from way back when
I remember Bill and Ben

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown

The flower pot men!!!!! That show rocks.

When I get into the mood of enjoying my childhood again, I'll post a piece Lisa.
