So I'd like to bring you Latt Children's Theatre Top Five Korean Cartoons:
(Disclaimer - some top five Korean cartoons may in fact be Japanese in origin)
At number five, it's the ever popular 아기 공룡 둘리:
Dinosaurs and unicorns make for a perfect team...
At number four, it's the rather bizarre 모래요정 바람돌이:
This little sand fairy seems to spend his time making wishes come true and running in circles. Very cute, but he does have a slightly disturbing voice.
At number three, it's teenage tearaway 영심이...
After that catchy little opening number here's Youngshim and the girls grooving with a guitar on a train.
At number two it's 빨간머리 앤:
It's that old classic tale of red headed orphans, Anne of Green Gables.
And at number one it's 피구왕 통키:
Tongky the dodgeball king rules the roost at our theatre, possibly because he has the best hairstyle ever...
Special mention must go to one cartoon in particular, 이상한나라의 폴:
Not everyday that I get a cartoon named after me, describing my adventures in Korea.
Plus 달려라 하니 deserves a look, as it is quite possibly the most melancholic opening to any children's cartoon:
Hey kids, her mum's just died, but she is going to do a lot of running!
As for my childhood, I have to say that Dangermouse holds a special place in my heart:
Though when it comes to stop motion animation, my number one would have to be Bagpuss...
Any old Korean cartoons you think should have made it to the top five?
