Humoring Daddy

Daddy never seemed all that impressed with my cartoons.  It is not that he doesn't like cartoons, he just thinks the TV shows he saw as a little boy were far better.  Today he sat me down in front of YouTube and started showing me some of the cartoons he grew-up with.  Some of his favorites, Looney Toons, the Smurfs, G.I. Joe, Mighty Mouse, He-Man and most importantly . . . the Transformers!

The animation wasn't exactly Disney Junior quality but Daddy told me what was more important were the characters and the story lines which are far more developed.  He told me you just don't see heroes like Optimus Prime or villains like Megatron anymore.
I learned about the Autobots who were protecting the resources of Earth from the Decepticons.
I'm not saying I didn't appreciate Daddy's reliving his childhood- it was actually kind of cute, still, you have grow-up someday Daddy.  

I do appreciate the concept of a robot that can turn into a car or a plane.  Unfortunately, these guys will never be able to hold my attention like Lightning McQueen and Finn McMissile.

Sorry Daddy, this is my cartoon era.
