We like to guard and defend our childhood cartoon icons, sometimes more than our politics. Don’t tell me that you hate the Lion King. I will crush your soul. And then I will reassemble it and crush it again. The cartoons we grew up with as kids are often what defines the era for us. Some grown adults will watch old kids cartoons when they’re feeling especially tired of adulting. It’s pretty understandable, right? Who doesn’t want to return to the cocoon of easier times (hopefully, if your childhood was nice)? These characters provided adventure and escape for us then, and they still do now.
