Cartoons have been a great source of entertainment for both, adults as well as kids. Back in those days, TV channels used to broadcast cartoons at much more convenient times like before and after school times. But now thanks to the streaming services, we can watch cartoons both new and old at any time.
There have been some old cartoons which we have thoroughly enjoyed and would have loved to see their reboot!
Let’s be honest, Popeye the sailor man was the reason most of us started eating spinach. He had first featured in the comic strip Thimble Theater in 1929. The first cartoon of Popeye was televised in 1993. And the most recent show “The Popeye Show” aired on Cartoon Network in 2001.
There was a TV special which came out in 2004 for his 75th anniversary too. But apart from this, Popeye hasn’t received a reboot.
2. Hey Arnold!
This cartoon was perfectly relatable to kids growing up. The protagonist is an extremely smart fourth-grader. He lives with his grandparents, Phil and Gertrude in the city of Hillwood. Hey Arnold! even touches on emotional topics and such situations that children can not only encounter but even relate to.
Hey Arnold had a movie aka Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie was released in 2017, but they haven’t rebooted the TV series yet.
3. The Wild Thornberrys
Everything about this cartoon was amazing. It is based on a family who travels the world in a combi van. Marianne (mom) shoots the wildlife documentaries and Nigel (dad) hosts the show. Apart from them, there are the siblings Debbie and Donnie, the protagonist Eliza Thornberry (who can speak to animals, how cool?). Darwin aka a well-spoken chimpanzee also joins the family.
The show started in 1998 and ended in 2004. The Wild Thornberry Movie was released in 2002 but there haven’t been any new episodes since then.
4. Beavis and Butt-Head
Both of them are complete idiots! The duo made their debut in 1993 on MTV. They both are teenagers who end up doing and saying all stupid things usually due to their boredom. They both are easily amused and this gives them the comical aspect.
Back in the 1990s, Beavis and Butt-Head attracted a worldwide fanbase which got them their very first movie “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America” in 1996. Fans haven’t received any new material since 2011.
5. Silver Surfer
Marvel comic book fans are aware of the Silver Surfer’s first appearance in the Fantastic Four comic book back in 1966. The cosmic character has made several appearances in both comics and TV shows. He was also given his show in 1998 called Silver Surfer, but sadly just lasted for one season.
Next, he appeared on Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and hasn’t made any appearances after that. The series is more than 20 years old and the character deserves a reboot.
