ITT: /co/ things your parents love
My mother loves The Jetsons and The Flinstones, but particularly that piece of shit alien no one likes
My mom really enjoyed Courage. She still mentions it, usually referencing Eustace. I think it stuck with her because she loves animals.
For what ever reason my mom loved gargoyles
She still brings it every now and then
OP here, holy shit true every mom on the planet likes Pooh Bear
Also not parents but my grandpa gets fucking hysterical watching Wile E Coyote And The Roadrunner
One of my mother's favorite cartoons is Mighty Mouse. She also watched PPG on occasion.
My dad seemed to enjoy Pingu a lot, the goofiness along with the vaguely surreal quality of claymation fit his sense of style. He used to rent those video tapes for me all the time.
Also, my mom was a big fan of Marvin the Martian from the Looney Tunes cartoons.
I did the same thing whenever my dad watched the Simpsons - my mom didn't want me to see the show, and I didn't want to get in trouble for laughing at any inappropriate jokes, so I'd take a magazine and pretend to read it behind the couch while secretly watching.
My parents aren't really into anything /co/ but my grandpa liked old Tom & Jerry and Loony Tunes, he had VHS tapes of them we'd watch together when I went to visit and he'd laugh at them more than I did.
>My mom really likes WINX Club for some reason
That's actually kind of adorable.
you'd have to have some pretty fucking dead inside relatives to not have them able to laugh at pre third season spongebob
my 95 year old grand grandma literally lost her shit at mermaid man and barnacle boy IV
>that's not my wallet
I remember my dad and I talked about how he used to watch a cartoon with this kid that controlled a silver robot using a remote control. After doing some research, I figured out he must have been talking about Gigantor. I had trouble figuring out what show it was because his description was kind of vague. He must have been watching a Mexican dub of the 60's run. He also really like Howl's Moving Castle for some reason, which is surprising given that he's more of a "bad action movie" sort of guy.
Also, I have a distinct memory from when I was around 10 of him coming into the room while I was watching King of the Hill, asking "Why are you watching that dumb show?" then leaving, but he claims he doesn't remember this.
tell you what, she's still able to walk out the room and go take a leak all by herself we still all look up after her obviously, but seeing as she can still move around at this age and that the highest awareness sign of anything at all is how she still struggles to call me or anyone in the house by our correct names nearly every single time she attempts to do so (which she has been doing since I was a little shit anyways) she's perfectly a-o-fucking-kay
Two different instances come to mind.
One, during the Krabby Patty secret formula reveal in Krusty Krab Training Video, the "DADADEELEELEEEDEEEDADADA" put my mom in fucking tears laughing the first time we watched it.
And two, my dad has a habit of giving kids, pets, grandkids, etc. nicknames and ONLY refering to people/pets by their nickname, I think it's a Mexican thing, as a kid, he constantly called me "Ozzy", ANYWAY, the first kid he and my mother had was apparently a little rowdy as a baby so he called him Bart, after Bart Simpson.
Bart died at about 2 months due to SIDS, and dad has poured fucking thousands into SIDS research, yet to this day my family still only refers to him as Bart.
My grandma and I used to love watching King of the Hill together, We liked the down to earth comedy style of it and we bonded through it.
Nowadays I cant watch it anymore, just reminds me that she isn't here anymore...
My mother legit enjoys Phineas and Ferb when we watch it with my little sister.
She also really enjoys a lot of cartoon movies, especially the Pixar stuff. She actually was really miffed when sis went to see Inside Out with her classmates instead of her, because she wanted to see it a lot, but she's the type that won't go to a movie alone.
I took her to see it eventually even though I wasn't super enthusiastic about the movie.
My mother had a child that would marathon all the animated movies they owned every other weekend. I can imagine she grew sick of Disney, yet will still sit down and watch Little Mermaid or Mulan when ABC plays it. Prolly the ones she quotes or recalls is Hey Arnold, Ed, Edd, n Eddy, and PPG. She would tell me stories of how she loved Scooby Doo and Garfield as a teenager, collecting goodies and merch. Side note, I still groan to this day when she tells me she liked the Avatar live action movie.
My mom loved the lifeguard episode of Spongebob.
Every time it was on she'd watch it with me.
my mom didn't watch much RS, but she does think that Rigby a qt. She liked the first season of Korra and thought Tangled was a charming movie.
she didn't like watching cartoons with me but I was hoping we could bond over one of my hobbies for once ;_;
My dad used to really love watching Samurai Jack with me. Got really upset when the show got cancelled.
He died in 2008. I'm hype for new episodes, but it's really gonna hurt without him around to see them too.
My mom's really into anything produced before WWII, and most Looney Tunes, but besides that she really liked early Spongebob, Rocko, and Courage.
My dad liked Rocko, Angry Beavers, Spongebob and Johnny Bravo a whole lot, but denies it now. He's the type where, if it wasn't one of those shows, he'd go out of the way to change the channel if I was watching cartoons, even if he wasn't watching TV. Claims that animation is awful on the whole, even badmouths Looney Tunes, but loves South Park and Family Guy.
The both had a hateboner for anime, especially my dad, but my mom actually liked Pokemon, probably because of the animals.
