For an incredible nostalgic trip down memory lane, have a scroll through our Top 10 Cartoon Travellers. The cartoons who have provided us with complete entertainment and traveled the world in doing so. Some may have provided us with inspiration for our own travels, some we may not have realised had ever been anywhere.
1. Captain Pugwash:
The “bravest bucaneer” and captain of the Black Pig, is a carton traveller who sailed the high seas frequently, thus, making the list! His frequent battles with Cut-throat Jack of the Flying Dustman (amazing name for a boat) kept us captivated. Captain Pugwash is a British classic.
2. Carmen Sandiego:
The award-winning ‘Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?’ pioneered RTW tickets before we all started taking gap years. In every episode she was somehwere different, even pinching souvenirs and ancient artifacts (not something we condone) from the many countries she visited – of to have her passport.
3. Paddington Bear:
What an inspiration! He came to London (Paddington) all by himself from Peru and if that isn’t enough to make the list, then nothing is. Even more impressive, he managed to get his worldly goods in his tiny little suitcase.
4. TintinThe Michael:
Palin of the cartoon world, Tintin has been everywhere making him a worthy participant in this list. From Egypt to America, Tibet to the Moon (he was totally ahead of his time) Tintin was an adventurer, however, I’m not sure whether or not he would make a great travel companion to sit and have a beer with in the hostel bar with.
5. Bart Simpson:
Now Bart Simpson I definitely want to travel with, guaranteed laugh a minute (as long as Lisa stays at home). He has traveled to Australia, Japan, Brazil, China, France and the UK, amongst others. Even more impressive is the sheer number of people at Beat the Brochure HQ who have expert Simpson’s abroad knowledge.
6. Captain Planet:
He’s out hero, he’s gonna take pollution down to zero! Well, we are still waiting for him fulfil his objectives, but Captain Planet and his fellow travelers from the Societ Union, Ghana, USA, Thailand and South America, traveled around the world promoting excellent environment practices and punishing those who failed to look after our planet. More importantly however, is just how muscular Captin Planet’s legs are.
8. Wacky Races:
Rock Slag, Big Gruesome, Red Max, Sergeant Blast, Peter Perfect, Rufus Ruffcut, Gravel Slag, Little Gruesome, Professor Pat Pending, Ring-a-Ding, Sawtooth, Blubber Bear, Penelope Pitstop, Dick Dastardly, Private Meekly, Ant-hill mob – the names of the wacky racers is entertainment enough, but each race is located is somewhere different around North America. They need to bring this back!!
9. The Hurricanes:
Take one football team and let them travel around the world playing matches and challenging the evil Garkos Gorgons, that Stavros just will not let it lie. Another classic that should be returned to our screens asap.
Question, What was Tommy’s dad’s job? The rugrats, aside from being an epic cartoon, had their fair share of vacations, including Paris and Las Vegas. I would like to now start a petition for a Rugrats in Las Vegas 21 – so we can see the gang in action when they are allowed to actively be in the casinos.Source: beatthebrochure
