The Pen Company has made a list of some of the cartoons currently making a comeback in the TV lives of our children:
A group of cat-like humans go on heroic quests and fights for survival. The program first aired in the 1980’s. A new series began in 2011 which re-imagined the story but retained many of the characters.
Batman first appeared in Detective Comics in 1939. He starred in his own comic from 1940. The most recent cartoon is ‘Batman, the Brave and the Bold’ which ran between 2008 and 2011. The show will be replaced by a more serious cartoon entitled ‘Beware the Batman’ due to air in 2013.
Scooby Doo first aired in 1969 with ‘Scooby-Doo, Where are You?’ The character usually has four faithful companions: Freddie, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy. The latest incarnation is Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc which brings the characters’ costumes up to date but keeps all the much loved features and in-jokes from earlier cartoons.
The comic first appeared in the 1960’s. Spiderman was the first teenage superhero. He has appeared in a number of TV cartoons. ‘Ultimate Spiderman’, a new cartoon has recently aired during 2012.
