A few other popular cartoon shows are Cartoon Network's Ben 10: Omniverse, Ben 10:Ultimate Alien, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Last but certainly not least are popular Disney shows such as Phineas and Ferb, Mickey Mouse Club House, Jake and The Neverland Pirates, Fish Hooks, Gravity Falls, Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil, and Tron: Uprising, but before you start reading I think you should know what my favorite modern day quotes is it is the genie from the Disney movie The Return of Jafar. It is, "Today's special moments are tomorrow's memories."
