A̶n̶d̶r̶e̶ Braulio’s 5 likes: cartoon network shows

Cartoon network was founded on October 1, 1992 and has had many lovable shows that everyone can remember but there are some shows out there that stand out more than others and I’m here to give you my 5 favorite cartoon network shows of all time. Before I start I would like to point out this list is in no specific order.

5.Courage the Cowardly Dog(1996-2002)

Courage the Cowardly Dog revolved around a pink dog named courage that was incredibly paranoid and afraid of everything. His owners are an old couple named Eustace and Muriel. Honestly I remember watching this show on tv when I was younger everything about this show was great. This show offered something not only kids could enjoy but teens and adults. Just because it’s a kids show doesn’t mean it’s not afraid to get dark because it has some truly terrifying moments in it such as return the slab and you’re perfect. This is probably one of the best and most unique cartoons out there and it definitely deserves a spot on this list.

4. Over The Garden Wall(2014-2014)

Two brothers named Wirt and Greg get lost in a forest called the unknown and must find a way out but along the way they find a wise woodsman and a talking bird named beatrice who promise to help them out of the unknown. To be fair this is more of a mini series than a show but it’s so good it deserves a spot on this list. This show has everything you could want great dialogue, amazing characters, and an amazing story. This show is surprisingly dark, similar to courage the cowardly dog. Characters also change like Greg the younger brother takes responsibility and becomes less naive then he was in the beginning.The show aired in 2014 and has been running every year around thanksgiving. I highly recommend you watch this show if you haven’t or you can watch it right now since it’s only about two hours long.

3. Regular Show(2009-2017)

Regular show was an incredibly unique and funny show created by J.G Quintel who also created The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. Regular Show revolves around a bluejay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby who are irresponsible groundskeepers and try not to get fired by their boss benson who is a gumball machine with anger issues. Although this is the basic run down there is so much more to this show. The first 2 seasons start with the duo at the park having shannagains and trying to stay out of trouble but something always goes wrong in every episode an example being the episode”Just Set Up the Chairs” where Mordecia and Rigby are instructed by their boss to set up chairs but get distracted when they find a storage room with arcade machines, they end up finding a machine that out of order but end up fixing it and bring the villain from the game into their world. This is an episode people think of when they think of Regular Show. This show is so weird and crazy. It is the exact opposite of regular and that’s what makes it so unique and memorable and why it’s one of my favorite shows.

2. Chowder(2007-2010)

Chowder revolves around a cat named Chowder who is a cooking apprentice to the famous chef Mung Daal and there’s also a rock monster named Shnitzel. Chowder is similar to a regular show as it starts simple but escalates quickly.Something about chowder is truly special because the character and the animation truly come to life. The animation is probably my favorite part because it has some parts when it does change in a unique way like showing you day turning into night. Overall chowder was probably one of the best shows in the cartoon networks Fall era along with other great shows like Ben 10 and Ed, Edd n Eddy.

1. Adventure time(2010-2018)
The show is about a 12 year old boy named finn and a magical yellow dog named jake. Adventure was a show I remember sticking next to from beginning to end and it ended pretty recently in september of 2018. The first couple seasons of adventure time was about finn and jake going on adventures but in later seasons took a more serious approach and I think they did it right. The show had some tear jerking moments like when they showed the Ice King was around before the mushroom war which was a war where they destroyed the world with nukes hence the name mushroom war because if the mushroom clouds nukes leave behind. Also finn is the only human alive because of the war. There are other kingdoms like the candy kingdom run by princess bubblegum and the inhabitants are candy people. The show has a clear dystopian feel to hit such as having destroyed cities and things that hint to having life there.
