A while back I shared with you my childhood crushes in the post Crush Crazy. Quite an eclectic group, and they happened to be human.
Today, I’m feeling nostalgic about my first cartoon crush, none other than COURAGEOUS CAT. Courageous Cat was one cool customer, had a zippy sportscar (the Catcar), a bachelor pad (the Catcave) an entourage (well, at least a sidekick) and best of all, his amazing Catgun — an über weapon that would morph into whatever fit the crime-fighting occasion.
Truly, he was the James Bond of cats!
Courageous cat even had a catchy theme song!
(see video below.)
ME-OW! Courageous Cat ruled! Sadly, when we started getting all PC, Courageous’s catgun was no longer considered appropriate for a kid’s show, even if it never fired bullets. So, with panties in a bunch, it was pulled from the airwaves. I covered political correctness in this post, The Good Ol’ Inappropriate Days, so please have a look and share your opinion on the subject.
Ciao Courageous, I miss you!
Please share! What was your favorite cartoon growing up, or who was YOUR cartoon crush?
