Stuck? 80’s Cartoon TV Theme Song might be your answer :-)

March 09, 2021

Today on my morning hike I got this annoying feeling: “Bummer. I’m kind of stuck here. For months I’m not getting any further than 10 kilometers from my house. Either for a walk or to buy groceries.”


Whilst I was thinking about that all of the sudden a little tune got back into my head.


A tune sang by a cartoon figure named Alf from the late 80’s which shifted my perspective in no time.


Watch it below. Feel free to join me for the singing  part 😉



P.S. Here is my invitation for you today: Will you think of a cartoon figure or an animal or anything that inspires you that will help you to find a different perspective on how you look at this current situation? I’m really curious to hear what you will come up with. Feel free to leave a comment below.

    Hello Alex. Thank you for this. I am so connected to cartoons that this was perfect for me to see this morning. The first image that came up was Rafiki from the lion king. He was silent yet everyone knew he was wise. He didn’t have to talk constantly to have people understand his strengths. One quote from the movie is my favourite in these times. “The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it or learn from it.” — Rafiki. I am so done with running. Thank you for this today. Have a beautiful week. Take care.

    I remember an old cartoon from when I was a child. It was, The Little Mole, made by MGM in 1941. I remember that even as a child I was struck by the idea of things not always being what you THINK they are. It depends on who and how you look at it. I was both sad and happy with this cartoon; most of all it made me curious, and that has been a good lesson. Here is a synopsis of the cartoon:
    “A young mole goes out to play. His mother warns him that moles can’t see well in the day, so he should stick close to home. A wandering skunk sells him a pair of glasses. These make the fairy palace he vaguely sees in a junk pile vanish, but reveals the beauty of the rest of the world to him.”
