Have a favorite fandom animal? I have many, so I thought why not start Caturday Saturday on my blog for favorite fandom animals. Suggestions are welcome or pet photos to share. I’ll probably share a picture of my cat each Saturday cause who doesn’t love a cute cat?
This Saturday I am doing my top favorite fandom animals from video games to television to movies and more. I hope everyone enjoys my list!
My Top 5 Fandom Animals
I’m used to the old ones that originally aired in the 1960’s. I was a 90’s baby and grew up watching them on boomerang and also “What’s New Scooby-Doo?”, “A Pup Named Scooby-Doo!”, and scooby-doo movies. The new versions fro 2010 onward make me go ew new cartoon style doesn’t look right. The lego ones are meh and the Velma and Daphne movie I gave a hard pass. The live action movies from 2002 and 2004 were a couple of my favorites growing up and I thought these live actions did well. I also played scooby-doo games on my PlayStation 2 (PS2) when I was younger, the one I played was “Scooby-Doo Night of 100 Fright.” I sadly do not own it anymore, it may be at my parents, if not, I would like to buy a new copy. This game was super challenging and amazingly fun.
2. Warrior Cats Series
I grew up reading these books, I started in about the 4th or 5th grade. I instantly fell in love with Firepaw (then star). The cats tales captured my imagination and I loved them and cried when my favorites had died. Jayfeather is my favorite character of the newer series, he is a very grumpy blind cat who captured my heart, as well as Spottedleaf and Leafpool. I could go on and on with how much I love these books but am just going to leave it at this and add a movie may be coming! The warrior cats website has been redone but still has some amazing content with games, forums, fan art and more. This has been a nostalgia purpose for me to go to the site and take the quizzes to see if I remember the content.
3. Tom and Jerry
Another cartoon classic! Tom and Jerry premiered in theaters first in an MGM classic cartoon called “Puss Gets the Boot” on February 10th 1940. I started watching when I was 6 (2000 about) and loved them. I always loved the fights Tom and Jerry had and then them teaming up with each other usually against spike or another cat. Though, even at a young age I noticed with a musketeer one it had a dark tone to it and a beheading in the background. Creepy, right? When I was older (maybe 11 or 12) I got a PS2 and got my parents to purchase “Tom and Jerry: War of The Whiskers” which is a boxing style fighting game. It was my favorite for the longest time due to the fact my dad always played it with me. I still have the game and original PS2.
4. Winnie the Pooh
These last two picks were rather hard to make, but Winnie the Pooh had to be on this list! Winnie the Pooh has an interesting history, A.A. Milnes son was named Christopher Robin and named his stuffed bear after a zoo bear named Winnie and that’s when it all started, first in a newspaper story named “Teddy Bear” in 1924 and then changed to Winnie The Pooh in 1926 when the book first came out. Winnie The Pooh I watched with my grandma, it makes this cartoon more special since my grandma still loves and we watched “Christopher Robin” together when I was over there for Christmas. I still think it is one of Disney’s best live-action adaptations. I have played games with winnie the pooh, “Disney Friends” for DS and “Disney Magical Kingdom 2” for the 3DS or 2DS like mine.
Our loveable monday-hating-lasagna-loving cat makes the list at number five. I relate personally to garfield as an adult, hate mondays, want to sleep all day, and love coffee! The comics were first published in book form in 1980 called “Garfield at Large” and newspapers in 1978, the creator Jim Davis has done thousands since then. I see Garfield comics in my newspaper and get all excited. I first got into garfield probably when I was 10 or 11, “Garfield: The Movie” was one of my favorites as a kid and I still enjoy the movie to this day, as well as “A Tail of Two Kitties,” the second live adaption of Garfield. I watched the Garfield and Friends cartoon as well and garfield books.
