While all the other kids were allowed to sleep in and watch cartoons every Saturday morning, I dragged my feet to Greek school. I would so look forward to those holiday weekends so I could finally watch all of my favourite TV shows.

I’m so happy to be able to re-live some of those memories and introduce those same characters to my own children in the old-school classic cartoons. Favourite cartoons from my childhood are now classics. Even as a child I had an eclectic taste, if I do say so myself! I enjoyed superhero cartoons including Batman, Spiderman and Hercules, the fun and loveable Smurfs, the hilarious Scooby-Doo and, of course, Bugs Bunny.

Here are some of my favourite Throwback to my Childhood picks on Netflix:

Bugs Bunny Road Runner Movie

This anthology of cartoons starring Bugs Bunny and the Road Runner features 11 hilarious shorts and an array of classic clips. The “wascally wabbit” recalls escapades with Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Road Runner, Elmer Fudd, Pepe LePew, Wile E. Coyote.
