I am from the scooby-doo, Jem and the holograms, She-ra, He-man, Smurfs generation. That was ages ago but if you want to be reminded of what they look like, just look them up on Youtube.
Nowadays, they have the...I don't even know what they have because we don't even subscribe to the Astro cartoon channel. We just buy DVDs or CDs for the girls. Lil Em's into Barney lately whereas Ash has been into mickey mouse and movie cartoons. They still look pretty much like cartoons I am used to when I was a kid.
But, last Friday, of all things she asked for at Pavilion, was a Barbie CD. We got her the CD and she was ready to go home. Obviously I wasn't (ready) because we just got there. Unfortunately for us, we walked passed by a CD shop when we were looking for my cousin's shop and there it was..a Barbie cartoon being played on the display set. She wouldn't leave without us getting her one. Hubby even tried coaxing her to buy the Barbie watch instead but she still insisted on the cartoon. Lil Em was watching us from her stroller and possibly wondering what the big deal was. In the end, we got one for her; the one she chased. She was happy naturally.
When we got home, she put the CD on. She loved it. She could even tell me which anorexic figure was Barbie. If there exist a guaranteed Barbie-esq quick weight loss program for women , there will be lots of happy women. Many can only hope...and wish. Anyway, I shouldn't digress -- have you ever seen a Barbie cartoon? DOn't you just hate the computer animated figurines? They look really really and I mean really super scary. Not to mention Ken too. Then again, I always hated the Ken part of the equation; he shouldn't even have been invented! Like I said...the cartoon..too strange for my liking. Either that, I am still an oldie at heart..
