Favorite cartoons on TV

Nothing creates a feeling of nostalgia for a person quite like remembering about the cartoons that they wanted when they were kids. We all had our favorite cartoons, but there is no question that there are a few characters that are known by many generations and continue to grow famous as new generations of cartoons come out.

One of the most popular cartoons in the world is Mickey Mouse. It doesn0t matter if you are 50, 40, 30, 20 or even 10 years old. If you have watched cartoons at some point in your life, there is a good chance that you watched at least one cartoon that included Mikey Mouse in it.

Disney has been responsible for some of the most popular cartoons in the world. They also created Donald Duck, Goofy and a huge number of characters that have been features in all kinds of books, movies and series. This is the reason why according to a large number of people, Disney is the ultimate producer of successful cartoons.

There are others who believe that Warner Brothers has actually been the greatest, with characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fud, The Road Runner and Willy Coyote. With many great shows that have been running for quite a few decades now. Some people think that the Merry Melodies cartoons are still the best that has ever been produced for television. They ran from 1933 to 1944 until the owner Leon Schlesinger sold the studio to Warner Bros in 1944. They continued to produce Merry Melodies cartoons until 1963, but reruns of these cartoons continued all over the world for decades and they are still aired in many countries today.

Then, you have Hanna-Barbera. They created three cartoons that are also part of the childhoods of millions of people all over the world. Scooby-Doo and The Flintstones are definitely the two greatest accomplishments that ever came out from those studios. They also created the Jetsons and Yogi the bear.  They are considered the third most popular company that has created cartoons for people of all ages.

There are many cartoons that have been popular in the last three decades. The Thundercats, The Ninja Turtles and He-Man and the masters of the universe are definitely others that have been favorites to millions of people all over the world. Now there are new cartoons like Ben 10 and Pokemon have become huge hits with many kids and other classics like the Transformers have been brought back into the mainstream, with new shows and Hollywood blockbuster movies.

There is one cartoon that has captured the attention of millions of people around the world, but it has also reached people of all ages, not just children. The Simpsons are the most popular cartoon in the world at this point and younger audiences as well as adults have been watching the show for a long time. A lot of people started watching in their youth and continue to do so now that they are adults.

Many cartoon characters are known by people in every corner of the world. Most of us know who Bart Simpson and Homer Simpson are. The same goes for Fred Flintstone and Sylvester the cat. These are all impossible to forget because they have been part of the childhood of people from generation to generation.

There are probably going to be many more new cartoons coming out in the next decade, but the classics will always remain top favorites to a large number of people and they continue to be updated so that new generations can enjoy them too.



TV Services Review

You may be wondering in this age of lcd & led  Televisions with 3D, HD, and even the newer curved screens if there is a place for TV’s which use the projector type of system. These Rear Projector TV’s are still in use, though not as popular. The TV works by using a projector lamp or lamps to project the TV picture onto the back of the television screen to produce the picture. These kind of projector TV’s were popular for the larger set, and never really took of for the smaller TV’s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rear-projection_television

The quality of picture really depended on the a couple of points

  1. The quality of projector used for the TV
  1. The quality of the signal coming through your TV Aerial or Satellite Dish.

With some cheaper makes of projector TV’s you would compromise on the picture quality for the lower price. The type of projector lamp used also where of poorer quality. The picture is definitely not HD with these cheaper makes, and you would see a poorer more washed out picture. The next area to look at would be the signal strength coming off either your TV aerial or antenna. To get a clear uninterrupted picture you need to have a good clear signal from your Aerial. The signal would need to be mostly free from interference & to do this you would need to employ an Digital Aerial Installation Engineersuch as digitec-aerials.co.uk. By using his spectrum analyzer the engineer can line up your TV Aerial correctly, and be able to view which position your aerial/antenna is best situated. Usually a high position with no obstacles such as trees or buildings is favoured.

If you are using a satellite dish to receive your TV, then a similar principle is used. The best and clearest signal is always aimed for & the satellite dish installer with use of a satellite meter will try and get a clear line of sight to receive the purest signal. With the projector Tv of old there is also the problem of out of date connections. Today we use HDMI cable to input the Sky box to the TV or Freesat, Virgin BT Vision or whatever you are going with, they will be using the HDMI as this is able to carry the HD signal to our TV. With the old style projectors, you would be using a scart connection, which can not carry HD, and therefore if you are wanting to watch your tele in HD, would mean that it is time to change your TV set.

TV Aerial Installer

When it comes to getting the best picture, you need to look at a quality TV Aerial Installation from a qualified aerial fitter ideally someone who is in you local area. Check his credentials, don’t be shy to ask if the engineer coming to your property to carry out a Digital Television Aerial Installation Blackpool is cai or Rdi accredited. Expect to pay a little more for his services as he uses better equipment in general than those that aren’t Rdi or cai accredited. The same is also true if what your after isn’t  an aerial installation, but a satellite installation. If you are going to use either Sky, or Freesat, then again the same principle applies, and the same engineer will be able to do the job for you.

So looking at what was not a hugely popular type of TV the rear projector lamp TV was in it’s own way a small part of the history of television sets which have come and gone. As Television Aerial Installation Preston we have noticed it has had to move aside for the lighter less bulky and frankly superbly LED, LCD type TV sets.  As we move forward with ever changing styles and ways to view our favourite programs it will be very interesting to see what is the next step we will be taking on this road of discovery. –
