This is something I have noticed in my years at University
. No matter how old the student
, what subject or from what background (unless they didn't have a TV
) they will eventually come around to the subject of childhood cartoon
s. The environment they're in is also irrelevant. I have observed this phenomena in bars, in shops, queues for toilets
The way the subject comes about can be one of several ways:
- Someone just says" do you remember...."
- Discussing TV and moving back through the years
- Seeing an old favourite on TV or just mentioned somewhere
- Rude words which will eventually lead to Captain Pugwash and on from there.
This conversation gives all participants a little happiness that they had in their youth. They get to reminice about a time when they were more innocent and the adventure they watched were just as real as real life. I think it must be more to do with letting them feel more childish. Always fun if you ask me.
