I had the lunchbox
18 April 2002 | by (New Orleans) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately, there is not much I remember of this cartoon. I had the lunchbox and it served me well. I talk to my friends about the cartoon, and they seem to only remember their favorite character. Mine was the raccoon, but I don't really remember anyone else. However, this doesn't mean that I didn't care about the show because I did have the lunchbox. I find it unfortunately fitting that this show, along with the many others (Pac-man, kidd video, the smurfs, real ghostbusters,et al) that I am forgetting, represent my quietly fading childhood.
