Awesome choices. I always loved Prince Eric and James Bond Jr. Used to watch it everyday after school!

what i wouldn't give for trent lane to be real...

That Kind of Girl said...

1) You are an ALL-TIME BADASS. So talented, dude. It's out of control.

2) I love the way your character's legs are crossed in the Montana Max cartoon. It's the tentative-gold-digger pose captured par excellence.

3) Oh my gosh, James Bond, Jr.! I used to have a JBJ lunchbox! And, sixteen years later, wish I still did.

Oli said...

Awesome drawings! I too wish Trent were real.

KN09 said...

I want you to know you made my day with Bobby.

The Shanner of Attention said...

HILARIOUS! I <3 Trent Lane. I wish my best friend's brother looked like him.

lalalalauren said...

Haha! I love this.
Also, I haven't thought about Doug or Pepper Ann in years. Now I'm all nostalgic for the days of Saturday morning cartoons. Haha.

Hipstercrite said...

ugh! i hate how amazing you are! ;)

soft nonsense said...

So much awesome, so little space to write about it...

I'll just say that Captain Planet complemented his already creep-tastic phrase with what (in my warped mind) just looks a bit like a pelvic thrust.

<3 the fact that you're wearing a Beets shirt in picture one.

I think you've inspired me to try and find some Daria episodes online...

Megs said...

If only Trent Lane were real. We would probably have some kind of girl on girl cage match, and I would kick my mother's ass for Trent.

These all cracked me up. I love Captain Planet and Bobby Generic especially.

Glad I'm not the only one who found Milo attractive, you know, in a 2D kind of way... Pepper Ann was the bees knees. I actually had a friend who named her dog Pepper Ann! Best pet name ever.

Vee said...

Ahh Trent, my old unrequited love. <3

Plum said...

Apparently your relationship with Brain is going well. Congratulations!

Sadako said...

I'm so happy you included Trent! I was so pissed Daria never went with him. I couldn't vicariously live through anyone to be with him...till now! (BTW, what was up with her choosing Tom? So bland!)

MJenks said...

Shouldn't that be "The same thing we do every night, Amber: poke you in the brown-eye, mutter some half-hearted apologies, and secretly pine away that tonight will be the night that you actually say 'yes'."?

The Brain always struck me as an ass-sex man.

TbR said...

I knew it - Captain Planet is such a perv.

Simon said...

Cartoons. Are so. Freaky.

nikki said...

You'll have to go through me to get to Trent.

Emily said...

Amber I literally love you. Literally. The Brain made me laugh SO hard.

Alexa L. said...

This is really funny. I loved it.

TabithaVenasse said...

Bahahahaha. Your art skills are amazing. And this was awesome.

I totally had a thing for Trent and Doug's best friend Skeeter when I was young.

miss jille said...

I'm contemplating what a date with one of the Ninja Turtles would be like..

Fear Street said...

I got excited when I saw Bobby. BOBBY'S WORLD! I miss Fox Kids...

Christina In Wonderland said...

Again, I love you, Amber. I totally laughed inappropriately at all of these. I laughed so hard... I'm, crying. Damn you, you made me cry!

Steve G. said...

hahaha, This entry is great! I especially like the Pepper Ann and Launchpad McQuack entries. Your skill with the pen is quite awesome!

Aggy said...

Loved it! Especially the fact that you reminded me of some cartoons I had COMPLETELY forgotten about!

Johana Hill said...

Hahahaha! Loved it!

Tina K said...

Well, hello there David the Sexy Gnome.

Benny said...

I love how all of these are EXACTLY how these cartoon dates would go down in real life.

Nicki said...

OF COURSE the Animaniacs cartoon is my favorite, but I'm really excited that I can go out into this brave new world knowing I have seen a sexually charged David the Gnome cartoon.

Amiee said...

Yes! Other people exist who remember David the Gnome!

Ashley R said...

Ohhh, I would go on many a date with Trent. Yes I would.

Also, I was always so disappointed that Prince Eric was the hottest Disney prince because my brother's name is Eric and you just can't cross that boundary. So sad.

Lastly, BOBBY'S WORLD!! I may still say the phrase, "bobby time for dinner dont you knowww" in the same obnoxious accent as Bobby's mom every time I make dinner and call my family/friends for food.

MC said...

Amber... pure awesomeness again.

RMb said...

hahahahaha
best. blog post. ever!

Heather Taylor said...

I'd go out with Trent Lane in a heartbeat. Except he'd probably forget and sleep through the entire date. Still worth it. Always.
