for the kid in u...


I usually don’t watch TV. Cable is the most underutilized stuff @ my home - I use to only to watch F1 race when sometimes I decide to watch it @ my home. Most of the other times, I don’t even switch on my cable connection.
But there is one thing I can watch. And then watch some more. And some more. I will never get bored of watching them - cartoons. From the good old Tom and Jerry to the latest ones like Pukka, I love watching them all. I have burned loads of DVDs full of cartoons... and I do watch them often than I watch real movies...

If there is anything I enjoy about cartoons than watching them is to read the comic strips... Dennis, C&H, Peanuts, Bringing up father, Dilbert, Garfield, Hagar the Horrible, Henry, Dennis the menace, Dilbert - the list goes on.

When I stumbled upon the official site of Hagar the Horrible, my joy Kew no bounds coz I saw a huge collection of strips, neatly arranged, and that too, for free. If there is any Hagar fans out there, go here and read and enjoy... :-D

Thank you...Thank you...Thank you...Thank you...Thank you...

I just sooo love Hagar!! I've been reading it regularly ever since I was in class 5! I got amused when my MA & PA would joke about it on Sundays. (Those days it used to come in TOI only in the Sunday newspaper if I'm right)

Totally and cartons are the best always. As u said, cables can make u become a couch potato unless something good runs.

I wish you have that bike to the right in header image and it will be as if the bike carries your blog name with it.

rahman said...

I love cartoons too...
as for strips; guess Hagar, Dennis, Garfield and Calvin&Hobbes simply rule!!!

But one thing though...I'm not too crazy abt the newest junk they show on CartoonNetwork. Lot of that contains more sex and violence than movies. Why can't they make good ol' cartoons like Tom&Jerry anymore?

Joy said...
