Top Five Nostalgic Cartoon Bands
For my generation, Nickelodeon was the king of kids' cartoons. And Doug was definitely one of the most memorable. Maybe it's because there were so many songs -- soundtracks to Skeeter and Patty Mayonnaise and catching Nematodes. But the crowning achievement of the music in the world of main character Doug Funny were the The Beets. A rip off and amalgamation of every band that came out of the British Invasion mixed with some alternative rock, The Beets were the favorite band of Doug and his best friend Skeeter (to this day, no one can argue with classic lyrics like "I don't eat sugar cereal, because it makes my teeth bacterial.") With classic 'hits' like "Killer Tofu," "Shout Your Lungs Out," and "I Need More Allowance," The Beets seriously rocked for a cartoon. And it's weird--listen to the words for "Killer Tofu." They might have been trying to convince us to be vegetarians -- or at least healthy. "Don't eat too much fried food." Check out the hard-rock version above.
