Vito - LTB NOW!!! He won't change and you can do so much better lol.

Is your DP orange by any chance?

VitoCorleone Italy Mon 25-Mar-13 19:12:11

Not orange but he does like the odd sunbed session LOL

You might be too old for him. smile

Phineas and Ferb is great. I love the songs and the platypus.

oh lord, yes I saw the premiere of the new Thundercats, and I was very disappointed. I haven't watched another one. The voices were all wrong. sad Thanks for mentioning it, though, it reminds me that I should have clarified: I have the Thundercats from the 80's on DVD. I think it's the complete set. I admit I think I've only watched the first season or two. I just enjoy having them because I really enjoyed them as a kid, and would love to share them with DS.

I've liked what I've seen of Phineas and Ferb, we don't get whatever station it's on here, though, so I've only seen it on trips to the US.

Ha!..I'm 40 and I have always loved toons..me and DH both..and let's get real most animation is not and was never made for children..they are a political, social and entertainment medium for adults..but some are made specifically for children ie..Peppa Pig, Dora etc..and others more subversive..

I don't think I will ever stop tbh..apparently my DCs friends think it's either normal because their parents do too (DD2) or think it's weird (DD1)..lol

Manga,Anime,Ren & Stimpy,Power Puff girls, 2 stupid Dogs, Sponge-bob,X- men, Batman, Hulk, Spiderman, Tom & Jerry, Dangermouse,Bat-fink, Dragon-ball Z,Thundercats..I like Phineas and Ferb too..lol....the list goes on..lovin the graphic novel inspired animation I've found on Netflix...

I got bored with Thundercats early in the second series when they introduced the new cats.

Jiiigglypuuufff....... draws on all your faces as you fall asleep grin

Pocoyo is amazing! I cry at the nighttime star one grin

GreenEggsAndNichts Mon 25-Mar-13 21:32:15

Boney I suspect that's what happened to me, as well, because my memories are all of the original group and not with all the new ones.

It's similar to the A-Team (so random, sorry)- I loved the first couple of seasons, and it's all I remember. I said to a friend how much I loved the A-Team when I was a child, and he said "oh yes but I never forgave them for season 4" yadda yadda evidently the entire plot changed and I literally had no idea what he meant.

Oh, and Transformers. I had an original Optimus Prime toy, I loved the first series and possibly more, but once there were dinobots and whatnot I started to lose interest. I still watched but my fond memories are of the original series.

I'm so sad. grin

yabu. my partner is 32 annd he plays video games constantly, including pokemon. i love them (i'm 24) and i'd rather that than someone who hated all that kind of think. you're never to old for pokemon!

edwardsmum11 Mon 25-Mar-13 21:35:06

Me and hubby love mickey house clubhouse and chuggington. We are 31 and almost 42. His grandad loves kids tv too and he is almost 70.

I think I can beat that, DH 38, bought himself ! A nerf gun the other day, his justification was 'all the blokes at work have them'
....... I have no words

blueemerald Mon 25-Mar-13 22:25:29

Pokerap! Ahem.

blueemerald Mon 25-Mar-13 22:26:25

Although this version is better..... I'm leaving now.

I loved the A Team - I was always the odd one out as I was in love with Murdoch and not Face grin

BerryLellow Mon 25-Mar-13 22:32:17

oh I LOVED ren and stimpy grin

And the Real Monsters, bloody brilliant.

we watch a lot of phineas and Ferb, and ultimate Spiderman sort of nonsense grin

MarcelineTheVampireQueen Mon 25-Mar-13 22:39:35

As you can see from my username, I am a HUGE fan of Adventure Time!!

Confession though, I watch all the crap on Disney, Good luck Charlie, Austin and Ally, Shake it up etc. I shall go hang my head in shame...

juniper9 Mon 25-Mar-13 23:30:12

I'm 28 and Pokemon started on Sky when I was 14. I used to rush home to watch it as I was a loser and I still love it.

I'm expecting my first baby in September and have been looking at this and this . My DP just shakes his head. But he doesn't know that I want to be the very best, that no-one was before. You see, to catch them is my real quest ... etc!

Mumcentreplus Mon 25-Mar-13 23:30:16

I love Adventure Time!..lol..and Regular Show...

SarahStratton Mon 25-Mar-13 23:35:29

I used to wander around the supermarket, absentmindedly humming the theme tune to Digemon. blush

Now I'm more likely to break into a song from Shake ItBloodyUp.

I am 45, and I still love Scooby Doo, The Snorks, and quite a few others. Let him be with his harmless Pokemon happiness.
