Life Lessons From Cartoon Characters
We have all had those mornings of making childhood memories by entertaining ourselves, watching our favorite cartoons over a bowl of milk and cereal. Most important of all, we all remember them, as they take a huge part of our growing up.
Can you also remember your parents frequently reproaching you for spending too much time in front of the TV screen watching cartoons, instead of getting busy with schoolwork? I do. And frankly, just the thought of it brings a smile to my face. I loved my childhood. It was full of different cartoon heroes that were part of my every day as a child. No matter how much our parents were reproaching us for ‘wasting our time on cartoons’, the truth is, there were definitely cartoons worth watching. Or better said, there were several cartoon characters that taught us big things, thus teaching us some of the greatest life lessons.
The lessons from cartoon characters are listed below.
Cartoons Worth Watching
- Always Be Optimistic – The Power Of Optimism By SpongeBob.
What SpongeBob taught us is to never give up. We should believe that optimism will take us on the road to happiness. SpongeBob was always ready for new adventures and he never let anything to lead him to stress and disappointment. The ultimate message from this great cartoon hero is to indulge in the little, small things in life that make us happy.
- Never Give Up – Ed, Edd and Eddy’s Life Motto
Some of the most popular cartoon character names in the history of cartoons are Ed, Edd and Eddy, indeed. If someone taught us the best lesson of persistence, it was these three hooligans who never gave up on getting the ever-elusive jawbreaker candy. Thanks to Ed, Edd and Eddy, we have learned that in life, we may have lots of goals that won’t just roll to our feet. To reach our goals, we must be willing to face failure and still continue in accomplishing our mission. Could it be more true?
- Working Together Always Works – The principle of Scooby Doo and His Mates
Scooby Doo is the big brown dog that takes part of my brightest childhood memories. I remember myself asking my parents to buy me a real ‘Scooby Doo’ dog, so that I can play with him all day long and delve into the same exciting adventures like this cartoon character did. Scooby Doo and his crew were representing the best mystery team that no matter the obstacles into the dark mines and creepy halls, they were always successfully solving all the problems, overcoming all obstacles, thanks to their exceptional team work. Hence, the life lesson Scooby Doo taught us is that we can always reach our goals and solve life issues if we are willing to use the help of others. Let’s not forget that ‘Individually we are one drop, but together –we are an ocean.’ Teamwork divides the task and multiplies the success. Thank you Scooby Doo! Thank you cartoons! Thank you childhood!
