The Cookie Carnival

You know those moments when you’re just going on with your day and then a memory — no, a memory of a feeling — hits you completely out of the blue. The sweetness of a gingerbread man on TV, a cupcake turned into a dress. Wobbly jello dancers. Heart-shaped lips. I loved that cartoon when I was a kid. I had it recorded on a VCR and I played it over and over and over again.

Thank god for YouTube.

    My childhood revolved around mech warriors and robots fighting dinosaurs.
    Never saw this on TV while I was a kid.

  2. Strange! :) We had so many oldies on tv. Maybe this is why I love candy? :D

    I think these are gulf cartoons. You also missed the russian cartoons: snow queen and Jiburashka
