Cartoon nostalgia has always been a solid source of distraction from our looming, adult responsibilities. Be it timeless throwbacks from Spongebob Squarepants and The Simpsons or new, edgy content from shows like Adventure Time and Rick and Morty, the cartoon medium has forever maintained its ability to evoke a plethora of human emotions.
Mixmag has gone back and revisited some of the classic cartoon moments where we find a number of the most beloved animated characters, from the ‘90s and beyond, raving it up on the dance floor.
What cartoon character would you want to hit the rave with? Check out the list below and decide for yourself.
Perhaps one of the most beloved episodes of the whole series, Samurai Jack embarks on a mission to stop Aku’s evil DJ minion - who has bewitched the city’s youth with a wicked onset of techno music.
Fortunately, Jack has got the moves (and the proper rave gear) to stop this sinister MC.
The importance of this episode is summed up perfectly by the YouTube comment: “When I first saw this episode I always wanted to dress up and go to a place like that.”
Season Three: Episode XXVIII - Jack and the Rave
Have you ever met a stranger at the rave, invited them back to your place for the after-party and soon after realised they have no intention of slowing things down? Plenty have made that mistake...and so has Spongebob.
Spongebob invites a jellyfish back to his crib and the party gets jumping! Unfortunately, Spongebob later realises that the jellyfish and his mates are not going to bed anytime soon.
