Top 5 Asian Cartoons We Watched Growing Up

Growing up in an Asian household meant we got exposure to some of the best Asian shows that taught us valuable life lessons that carried into our adult lives. Here are some of the most nostalgic Asian shows you may have grown up watching!

1. Doraemon

Doraemon is a classic that brings back so much nostalgia from our younger days. Watching episodes of Doraemon, an earless robotic cat from the 22nd century, who is sent to help a young boy named Nobita Nobi sounds odd; however, the innocent and playful episodes always reminded us to lean into our imaginative and creative sides.


2. Sailor Moon

You already know! Sailor Moon is another popular and famous childhood show that girls (and maybe guys secretly watched). The series was about a schoolgirl named Usagi Tsukino and her group of comrades, the Sailor Soldiers who battled against villains.


3. Pororo

Pororo is definitely one of the most iconic childhood favorites. The Korean television series revolved around Pororo, the little penguin, and his friends in snowy Porong Porong Forest. They overcame challenges and learned a variety of life lessons through their adventures.


4. Journey to the West

Journey to the West followed a more traditional Chinese classic tale. The series focused on the legendary pilgrimage of Buddhist monk Xuanzang who travelled to Central Asia to obtain sutras with his four disciples.


5. Avatar the Last Airbender

There’s no doubt that Avatar the Last Airbender (ATLA) made the list. ATLA not only hits close to home for any kid who watched Nickelodeon growing up, but it’s also a go-to show if you want to revisit your childhood.
