widget is not a figment of your imagination

OK, this is so weird, so i'm 24 years old and i use to watch this cartoon also when i was young. i ask all my friends all the time and they say, what was that? i've been looking for it for a long time and i found it on this website. it was a pretty good show. well just wanted to share my little piece of history. oh and by the way i didn't know you had to write 10 or more freakin lines on this website in order to have your comment posted. well there are also quite a few more cartoons that i remember that i wish would still come on. the new cartoons on TV are so dumb and they are making everything too digital. go back to drawing cartoons, they were funnier and better.
