Watching cartoons with my little boy a few days before, I found out that is extremely interesting to analyze free and premium fonts seen in famous cartoons (including in Tom and Jerry). As you will see below, these fonts look gorgeous and can be used in lots of cool projects.
Some of these fonts, even if you see them somewhere else, not in cartoons, will make you think for the cartoons where you have first seen them. It happened to me when I saw the font used in Tom and Jerry – one of my favorite cartoons. This is a very powerful psychologic instrument that you should consider when using cartoon fonts.
Cartoons played a huge role in our lives and it will do the same for our kids. There are good cartoons (the ones that teach our kids to be kind, to play nice with their friends, to explore the world, to learn at school), and cartoons that are not giving the best examples (kids that argue and fight, and so on). I grew with both types of cartoons (probably you also), and I am a normal person (or this is what I like to think about myself ).
I remember perfectly many of the cartoons that I watched when I was a boy. Before going to school, I watched as fast as possible several cartoons with superheroes so I can “pick” the characters that I like, so it will be mine, before my bigger brother will pick his. When we were both at home and watch cartoons, we would share the superheroes so we can both have the same number.
Let’s see 5 free and premium fonts seen in famous cartoons (including in Tom and Jerry)
