Toon Memories

Remember those shows we watched when we were kids? Would you like to reminisce?
This is a place for those who have grown up on Saturday morning cartoons, singing along to those ever catchy theme songs, playing with g.i. joe action figures, and wearing ninja turtle underwear!

Now that we live in an age with countless resources available to us on the internet, we have the tools to reminisce about days (and cartoons) gone by. Found a video on the internet of a show you almost forgot about? Found the audio to a theme song you've had stuck in your head for 20-30 years? Have some old merch kicking around in your storage closet? Share it here!

Rules of this Community:

You can post icons, links, embedded videos, photographs, stories, or anything you find that you'd like to share with the rest of us! However, to be fair to everyone, some rules are going to have to apply.

1. This is mandatory for all posts! If you are posting large or multiple images, multiple videos, or writing a lengthy reminiscent story, please post it behind an lj-cut. We don't want to make our friend-pages scrolling hell-holes.
*NOTE: Posting a single video and/or one small image is fine, and doesn't need an lj-cut :)

2. Found a funny parody of one of your childhood shows? Have a great story to tell? Is it offensive? Make sure you post all offensive and derogatory material behind an lj-cut labeled NSFW (Not Safe For Work) for those of us who would rather not see it, or get in trouble on the job.

3. No fighting, name-calling, eye-gouging...you know the drill. We're all adults here, right? Even so, if you feel you have been unfairly treated by a fellow community member, please report it to a moderator (see below), and explain the problem. Consequently, rule breakers will be banned from this community.

4. Stay on topic! This isn't a community to talk about latest fashion trends or what you ate for dinner last night. Please stay true to the community :)
