Friday Fun with Cartoon Inspiration

The firestorm of cartoon character debates that flew through our living room when I answered Bruna's Let's BEE Friends interview questions for my feature on her blog today were wide and wild.  Everyone had their opinions as to who the best was and the reasons why were as varied as the cartoon characters were.

I haven't been able to get a few of those characters off of my mind.  Let's welcome the weekend in with some Friday Fun and take a stroll through a few things that have been created with a couple of these characters in mind.

Tweety Bird
~ one of my nicknames as a kidlet ~

Crayon roll ups are great in the car & for coloring in unexpected places!

How cute would these be at a party!

Wonder Woman
Okay, I realize now, I wasn't thinking of Wonder Woman from the comic or a cartoon, but rather Lynda Carter kicking some butt!

I want one!

This gives me so many ideas for kidlet wallets, party favors, a way to include more pics, journaling, or memorabilia on a scrapbook page!

So sweet. Outwear that reminds me of Underoos. I can't remember if I had Wonder Woman, but I know I had SuperGirl!

And since I'm still singing La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, laaaa...and I do adore Neil Patrick Harris and Project Runway with the fabulous Tim Gunn started last night and Jayma Mays is cute as a button...

...did you sing along?  You did, didn't you.  It's okay, you can admit it.  Wouldn't want you to get blue or anything over it. ;>  Will you be getting Smurf'd and seeing this 'reimagining'?  I promised the kidlets one more trip to the movies this summer, so it's this or Winnie the Pooh.

Happy Friday!  Hope you're on your way to wickedly fun & wildly wonderful weekend!


  1. I never loved Tweety too much, but my just-younger sister and I always shared a Wonder Woman dress-up set. Every time I see Wonder Woman stuff now, I think of the magic of really believing I could jump ALL the way from the top of that tree and not get hurt. It worked, too, up until that last time I got my arm put in a sling . . . ! *cough*

    I still buy my sister whatever Wonder Woman miscellany I can find. :)

  2. This cake is so super cool. I love it.
    With my little tot I'm back watching all these cartoon characters. Every day we have one hour cartoon-time on TV and I can't help but joining my boy.

  3. That cake DOES rock, and I love the Wonder Woman stuff!

  4. Um, I dreamed about being Wonder Woman and snagging people with her lasso of truth!

    I don't know how I feel about the Smurfs movie. I'm torn. Is live action going to ruin it? I just don't know.

  5. That cake is awesome! I love those crayon rollups, I just imagine all of the meltdowns I could avoid having those in my purse!

  6. what a great feature that was on lets BEE friends.. i was a huge smurf fan back in the day.
    oh and strawberry shortcake i could smell her for hours.. maybe that is when i developed a little quirk for certain smells.. hummmmmm

  7. That cake is fantastic! My mom loved Tweetie Bird when I was growing up. I wonder if she still does...

  8. Love these fun reminders of childhood cartoons! We always loved Looney Tunes, and Smurfs. We also loved Animaniacs! :)

  9. Am I the only one that is SO NOT STOKED that the Smurfs are back?
