Never forget that in 2008 Avatar: The Last Airbender (2005-2008) is the only show that has ever beaten SpongeBob Squarepants (1999-) for favorite cartoon in the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards ever in the history of all time.
That we were the generation that was fortunate enough to grow up with AMAZING shows with AMAZING characters that we could look up to.
These characters weren’t grown ups.
There was no corny humor.
Okay, a tiny bit.
But we were provided with well thought-out scripts, with excellent stories that had great casting from kids that loved to act and were passionate about what they did.
Also, they didn’t just play their part, they became that character that still lives on in our hearts to this day from our childhood, and I’m thankful for that.
I want kids to grow up with shows and movies that can inspire them to create-to want to become those characters when they’re outside playing with their friends or writing a story that can come from that world.
For the kids to inspired and to be grateful for the hard work those people did to create a show that helped them get through school, or a hard time in their life.
Because maybe one day, one of those kids will make a story, and it will be because of those characters that they grew up with, that contributed to creating a new story to tell to a new generation of kids, yearning to hear, look and listen to what the world has to provide to them.
Edit: Over 10,000 notes now, and because I can’t find any Ask button or message or submit buttons on this girl’s Tumblr, I think this cosplayer may still have no idea that she’s this popular. Someone should fix that…
