Nostalgia can be a powerful emotion, particularly when it's tied to our childhood. Many of us can recall a time before on-demand TV, when we had to wait for those Saturday morning and after-school windows to watch our beloved cartoons. And as much as we loved to lose ourselves in the stories, we can recite the lyrics to the theme songs at a moment's notice despite not hearing them for years.
