My Cartoon Character
When I was a kid I used to love watching cartoons. I loved to watch them because of their simplicity and humorous characters. I can still remember how real they felt to me. They seemed like my friends. I loved to watch Bugs Bunny, Tom & Jerry, Captain Planet, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, He-Man, Puppy, etc.
My absolute favorite was Captain Planet. Its title song struck a chord with me. I dreamed about being a member of the Planet Team. It was so exciting when the team members used to combine their powers. That's when Captain Planet would appear. I loved that feeling of anticipation, waiting for the arrival of Captain Planet so that he could fight against all those evil people.
My least favorite cartoon was He-man. I was afraid of "Skeleton" and his gang. In spite of my fear I watched that cartoon because I loved to see Price Adam change into He-man. Actually, that kind of super power was like a magnet for me.
As a kid, I loved drawing too. Of course, I drew cartoon characters like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Superman, Spiderman etc.
Last Sunday, when I was doing a small sketch to pass some time, I thought about my childhood drawings. I decided to create my own cartoon hero. It's a white mouse wearing blue shorts, a yellow T-shirt and a red cap. He has a bundle of rope tied around his waist and carries a blue backpack. Even though he often gets teased about his small size, he is super intelligent and talented, ready to conquer any evil things or people.
It's a fun cartooning project. I'd love for my white mouse hero to be considered a special friend by lots of kids.
