Saturday mornings were a sacred time for our nerdy little hearts, and it was all thanks to our amazing 90’s cartoons! Twenty-two awesome ladies came out four the March 90’s Nostalgic Cartoons Brunch, and it was definitely a brunch for the books. Catdog, Rocko’s Modern Life, The Rugrats, Animaniacs, Doug, Aahh Real Monsters, and Ducktales were all among our geeky discussions and Krumm, Oblina, and Ickis even visited the Hidden Lake Winery, who were our gracious hosts.
For swag, there were adorable Plank bookmarks and containers of Slime made by our amazing Sophie, individual Saturday morning cereal boxes, and 90’s themed candy for each of our brunchettes to take home with them. There were a variety of 90’s cartoon coloring pages to enjoy while we talked about our favorite cartoons, some of the funniest episodes we remembered, and our number one shows. We also raffled off 2 90’s cartoon DVD’s titled Out of the Vault, 2 Lisa Frank activity books, and the books Slimed, Drawing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Clarissa’s Things I Can’t Explain. There was definitely plenty of swag to go around.
Our location was the beautiful Hidden Lake Winery and they placed our nerdy selves in their barrel room with our very own bartender. They included a free mimosa or bloody mary with our meals and gave us an unlimited supply of coffee and tea, which kept all of our ladies happy. We had the beautiful scenery of the lake and surrounding woods and great food, including what had to be the largest breakfast pizzas ever! To top it all off, the service was top notch and the staff was super nice!
One of the main cartoon topics discussed was that that majority of our favorite 90’s cartoons were heavy with adult undertones that we couldn’t believe our parents allowed us to watch. We also remember that the majority of female characters from these cartoons were also extremely sassy and a force to be reckoned with. Something we definitely all could agree on, in the end, was that the cartoons of our childhood beat the cartoons that kids watch today!
