The Day Of the Do Over Is Here!

Yes it's the Deja Vu Blogfest!

Hosted by DL Hammons all you have to do is repost one of your blog posts from earlier in the year, whether it be your favourite or one that you think should have more exposure or whatever.

So it starts today and ends on the 20th so there is still time for you to sign up and dig out that old post from this year that you are particularly fond of.

So my offering comes from way back in May - the 29th May to be exact.

I occasionally take part in a meme called Fast Five Friday and on that particular day you had to list your 5 favourite childhood cartoons - and I really enjoyed that trip down memory lane so I thought I'd deja vu it so you can all wander down memory lane with my favourite childhood cartoons (and 1 plasticine creation too!).

So here we go back through the mists of time (feel free to imagine the opening credits to Doctor Who at this point)...

Fast Five Friday is a weekly meme hosted by the Cover Girls. Basically each week there will be a subject for you to list 5 things... that's all there is to it. Once you've posted your list go and leave a comment on the Cover Girls FFF post for that week so other people can read yours.

This week's subject: 5 Childhood Cartoons

I couldn't wait to write this post... being a bit of a geek I actually have t-shirts and DVDs... and cookie cutters of some of my favourite cartoons from when I was a kid (I was born in the 80s - the time of fantastic kids shows)

So here are my five complete with theme tunes :)

1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - of course in the UK during the 80s they were known as Hero Turtles instead of Ninjas.

2. The Real Ghostbusters

3. Count Duckula

4. The Trap Door - ok so it's not technically a cartoon... but it's still a kids show

5. Looney Tunes - they're still around today but they originate from well before I was born - so technically they are childhood cartoons for everyone!

And now back to December 2015. Did you enjoy that trip down memory lane (both for the post and the cartoons)? Did it stir up any memories of your own favourite cartoons from when you were a kid?

Well before you go off and start looking up all your favourite kids shows do remember to click the link at the top of this post and go and check out the other deja vu posts... or sign up and post yourself.
