The Trapdoor or I have turned into an old whinger









I don't remember any important or momentous things that happened in my early youth (like,5 or 6) but I do remember this show. It's original and entertaining plus the theme song is so bad it's good. My favorite character is Boni followed closely by the thing upstairs . I remember sitting and watching this a very long time ago along with Rugrats,Daria,The Angry Beavers and Rocko's Modern Life. They were so good, the kids TV shows at the moment are banal and stupid the originality, quality and intelligence has deteriorated but it's meant to be the other way around, there should be better shows now...We've devolved and it's annoying.
Anyway what was meant to be an appraisal of how good The Trapdoor is has become an extended lament about the state of childrens programs today.
What are everyone else's favorite bygone cartoons?

i just finished what is a relatively picturey post and I decided to visit your page and you've done a kid shows post too!

what a coincidence!! that is just too cool. granted i did like school themed cartoons but still, that is just amazing.

i definitely agree, they don't make 'em like they used to

hehe, i just noticed 'devolved'

just thinking back, i have no friggin idea how i cut that out, because it's not very big either.

KRINK markers are by far the best.

and thank you
