Recently, my friend wrote in an e-mail that ModCloth was “ridiculously ‘jawesome!’” Where did this term originate? If you know the nostalgic roots of “jawesome,” then you’re one ‘shark’ individual. It was coined by a troupe of crime-fighting half-man/half-sharks from the mid-Nineties TV series Street Sharks!
Similar to how boy bands took over the radiowaves in the ’90s, cartoons of that decade were all about anthropomorphic action heroes. Other than Street Sharks, can you guess which other animated animal heroes we miss?
The only thing dangerous about this show is its insanely catchy theme song; don’t be surprised if you find yourself breaking out soulful bursts of “Darkwing Duck” in public!
Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures
Proof that big things come in little packages (dressed in a yellow bodysuit with a red cape)!
Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers
True heroes, Chip & Dale rescued many an afternoon of my childhood!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
You didn’t think we’d leave TMNT out of the mix, did you?
That’s my list! Who would top your list of heroic animal ‘toons?
