>Phew. That is a long post title!!
We like old school cartoons. By we I mean Mr. Bargains and myself. There’s just “something” about seeing old favorites from our childhood again!! We often let the kids watch with us, although it does make both of us feel kind of old when they kids talk about how “weird” the characters were (its pre-digital age, kids!).
We received a copy of each of these last week and have watched some of each already. We like “shorts” because we don’t watch a lot of TV with the kids on a regular basis- so 5-10 minutes right before bed on a school night works quite nicely, and when a short ends, they know its over…no need to pause and start where it ended the next day, you know?
I love, love love these DVDs!! So fun! I think the re-MICKS are my favorite, but you’ll have to decide your favorite when you watch for yourself!! They are a great family DVD to have, but be warned, the kids will likely want you to pop some popcorn while you watch…
