so about two days ago almost. I went to my cousin's house. he was watching the show recess.. which shocked me cause he's ten and that played when I was like 5. anyway we got into a discussion about anime. Apparently he watched yu-gi-oh
the first season, but I was thinking not possible because I watched yu gi oh like more than 10 years ago before he was born!! then he continued to talk about episodes from the first season. I was baffled he knew anything about it. we also talked about sonic the hedge hog.... I was shocked that was still on tv during his time. I mean I watched that when I was 8 and now 12 yrs later my cousin who's not even 11 seen it. HAS THIS HAPPENED TO YOU CRUNCHROOLLERS>!? SHARE YOUR EXPIRENCES

The only animes that seem to be timeless are Miyazaki's movies. Most kids nowadays complain about the quality of stuff back then when the recording technology was more primitive and the cartoons were hand-drawn.

I saw some preschoolers watching Totoro. I was around their age when I first saw it. They seemed to enjoy it.

well its happened a few times, the anime which i still can recall...

Dragon Ball ( the old one, where he was a child )
Pokemon
Yu Gi Oh 1st Season too xD


i guess a few movies / series never get old. Sometimes i watch the old Pokemon movies ('98) , which i watched when i was around 7-10 years old in the cinema, and my 6 years old cousin knows the movies/series

All the time. Mainly since I introduce most of anime and cartoons to them. I mostly own all my childhood shows and watch with it them since I think today's shows are just bad. From your serious cartoons batman the animated series Gargoyles and X Men the Animated series. To the comedy of Animaniacs,Ed, Edd and Eddy, and Pinky and the Brain since those are the only ones I can think of the top of my head. As for anime I always tell them to watch Cowboy bebop and gundam (zeta, X, Turn A CCA) and tenchi muyo to start off with. Sadly they just can't respect the animation quality for them.

yesterday, walked into a video game retail store, and i saw pokemon merchandise dedicated stand in the centre of the store. WAS SHOCKED.




so much nostalgia... 16 years ago, i would have went crazy over these merchs. however, pokemon brings me nothing but nostalgia... nowadays.

but it's funny to see that current generation and previous gens are still obsessed with this franchise

my OCD disappeared like smoke a long time ago.

Hmmmm I recall a kid at the summer camp I worked at who liked One Piece. That's the only thing I can think of.

well, my nephew watches shows like Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles like I watched when I was a kid, but they're the completely different "modern" versions of the shows, not the original ones I used to watch.

Most of the stuff you guys are talking about is still recent.
