Cartoon Network was like our playmate in the most joyous days of our childhood; be it Tom chasing Jerry around all day long, only to team up once in a while to teach the ferocious Spike a lesson or two, or Popeye going up against his arch nemesis Bluto to save his girlfriend Olive Oyl from all kinds of trouble; the animation style, voices, storytelling, narrations, and just about any other technical detail one can think of was brilliantly blended into these popular shows and characters.
