Nostalgia Trip: Cartoon Network Groovies Vol. 3

Last week on Nostalgia Trip I brought you a second helping of Cartoon Groovies with all the Powerpuff goodness you could handle. This week, keeping with the theme of our Groovies collection, we'll be taking a look at the videos that were based around the brainiac boy with beats. I'm talking of course of the Dexter's Lab Groovies.

Random Artist Showcase: SuperSketch1220

Coming up with simple, yet fun articles can be a pain. A labor of love, but frustrating. However one concept we haven't abandoned from the beginning was focusing on you, the artists. The people who do what we do, but with animation and drawings and all the wonderful stuff you've created that is your mark on the world. So, in what we hope is a series of articles we get to keep doing, today we're going to showcase those talents with our very limited spotlight. And we figured we'd start with someone we know.

Remember, "The Powerpuff Girls" is still getting a reboot.

The Powerpufff Girls was originally created by Craig McCracken in an awful time known as the '90s, becoming a major trailblazer in the world of cartoon audiences, something modern bronies can trace back to as lineage. It lasted six seasons, a movie, two specials, and even an official anime. So just when you thought Rob Sorcher and the CN staff were coming back to form, they weren't.

It may be old news, but we'd like to remind you that, yes, The Powerpuff Girls will be getting a reboot.

Nostalgia Trip: Cartoon Network Groovies Vol. 2

Last week I brought you the original Cartoon Network Groovies starring your favorite Hanna-Barbera cartoons. Except Scooby Doo. I didn't have Scooby Doo.

So this week, I thought I bring in Groovies starring one of the best cartoons to ever grace the Network. And they also had some of the best Groovies. It's all about the Powerpuff Girls on this addition of Nostalgia Trip.

Racist cartoons: They're not your fault

Oh racism, you make the past uncomfortable. Since the first animated shorts in 1908 to The Book of Life, humor has morphed from what may have once been socially acceptable to laugh at in to what only makes the more degenerate people laugh at the ridiculous nature of it in private. I'm talking of course of the racist nature of black face, Japanese impressions, and all around American uncomfortableness we've all come to regret.

Nostalgia Trip: Cartoon Network Groovies Vol. 1

Critics2D returns after our 7th hiatus to take you on a musical journey. One that'll take you back to the time when Cartoon Network was God and your introverted life didn't matter because you had kick ass cartoons. Even the bumpers were cartoons. Hell, they were music videos. I'm talking of course of the Groovies. The music videos that span multiple genres and animation styles. And to start it off, we'll be looking at the Groovies based on some classic Hanna-Barbera Cartoons.
