Cartoons have been a part of our growing up, since birth. As kids, we could easily associate our innocence with them and be lost in their beautiful world. The animated characters have actually lived in our mind, making us cry when they were hurt and laugh at their cute deeds. Cartoons take you into a fictional world, where either you roll over with laughter or see the ultimate triumph of good over evil. The creative art and illustration, with animated characters speaking and moving like humans, astonish people and make them a favorite pastime of kids and at times, even adults. Some of these characters make a mark on kids and become their favorite characters.
Right from the ‘Tom and Jerry’ and ‘Popeye’ comedy series to the ‘Superman’ and ‘Naruto’ power-packed series, kids love to see animated characters entertaining them on screen.
