Capture A Tiger By The Tail
9 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

My brother and I used to get up at 7:00 AM just to watch the Comic Strip. I think our favourite show was the Tigersharks. I even remember the theme song.

You've got a tiger by the tail hold on Tigersharks, Tigersharks, Look for a human with a tail, Hold on Tigersharks.

Hold on Tigersharks.

I didn't really care about the Street Frogs, the Mini Monsters, or Karate Cat. As long as I got to watch the Tigersharks then I didn't really care as far as that went. Of course I was 11 and I didn't really care anyways.

I haven't outgrown cartoons yet and I'm not about to out grow them either.
