Here are a few ads created for Tounisia’s tv channel called Tounsia TV. The ads showcase the timeless cartoons we as kids used to watch over and over even though they’re so old yet a lot of who witnessed that generation would perhaps agree, cartoons of then are better than now. Anyway the three ads were created by advertising agency JWT and illustrated by Mejri Zied and they showcase three popular cartoon characters re-imagined in old ...

What can I say about the insanely talented Toni Braxton that hasn’t already been said? For one, her deep voice truly one of a kind, so much so that no matter how long its been since you’ve heard one of her songs, as soon as you hear her voice its instantly recognizable. Her songs range from slow love songs to dance tracks, and her ability to change styles and perfect every single one is nothing short ...

We haven’t posted any rewinds for a while now, and we are back to refresh your memory and remind you of the awesome past. One of the most compelling movies back in the days was The NeverEnding Story which came out in 1984. At the time it was one of the most expensive movies to produce outside the US, it turns out it is originally German with American funding. As a child this movie was a ...

Aaliyah was like no other and her music lives on long after her death. Its been ten years since Aaliyah passed away, and yet her music is so fresh that I could still listen to it and never get bored. Songs like “we need a resolution” and “hot like fire”, could easily top the charts if they were released today. Aaliyah has been named the “Princess of R&B” and “Queen Of Urban Pop” and rightly so ...

This is what music should be! When I try to remember music that I listened to as a kid Boys II Men always stand out. The true meaning of a boy band … - Not skinny little feminine looking guys targeted to make 12 year old girls ask their parents for money to buy their albums. - Not music with lyrics made by someone with the mental capacity of a garden gnome. Boys II Men are everything a ...

MEMORIES! This seriously takes me back. I remember listening to her tracks over and over in my teens. Mya was unstoppable back then, her songs were always addictive, and her voice was amazing. Even though its been over ten years since she released “Ghetto Superstar” in 1998, the song is still chart topping material, as well as many of her other tracks like “fallen” and one of my personal favorites “case of the ex”. So sit ...

“You better shape up, cause I need a man and my heart is set on you. You better shape up; you better understand to my heart I must be true.” Who in their right mind hasn’t watched Grease at some point? I’ve watched Grease more times than I can remember, my whole childhood is comprised of watching this movie at least twice a week. I could never get enough of it and I still cant. Grease had the best songs like “You ...

Sade has a voice that could melt even the blackest of hearts. Everything from the way that she sings the songs to the actual lyrics has been well though out. She definitely takes her time before releasing a new album but its always worth it. Every time I listen to her music it reminds me of a summer vacation I once took where I would just relax on a hammock by the beach and just drown ...

OMG I just had a mini heart attack. Seriously this is my early teens all rolled into one video. This is unbelievable! I love these guys. Seriously I would join them in a heart beat. The group is known as localvocaldk and they basically took all the best songs of the 90s and created a tribute medley. Here’s the official description: “No instruments, just a capella – Danish acapella vocal group – specialising in nordic vocal soundtradition ...

There’s something about this song that just speaks to the deepest part of a person’s soul. It’s like a sad lullaby, I haven’t heard it in a long time but I still remember all the lyrics because of how beautiful the words are. The song is called My Immortal by Evanesence, and the lead singer is Amy Lee who has such an angelic voice. “You used to captivate me By your resonating light Now I’m bound by ...

“I’m walking away, from the troubles in my life. I’m walking away, gonna find a better day” “What’s your flava? Tell me whats your flava … oooh” I could keep on writing more verses to these songs but by now you should know that these songs are all done by the amazingly talented Craig David. When I got my hands on the “Slicker Than Your Average” CD in 2002, I couldn’t stop listening to it. ...

Like always, we at Chuknum are rewinding the clock to our childhood, you might have been there as well but at least you must know Captain Planet! He was the star of the 1990′s, an environmental super hero that saves the planet. This show only had 113 episodes but it happens to be one of the more interesting shows I used to watch. It isn’t Marvel nor DC comics, Captain Planet was created based on an ...

Are these goosebumps I see before me? if not, you probably did not have a childhood! just kidding. Soreike! Anpanman or in other words GO! Anpanman (Al-ragheef al ajeeb in Arabic) is one of my favorite anime cartoons I watched as a child. The concept and the whole idea is ridiculous and serious at the same time. It is about super heros that are made out of bread, they save others by giving bread and ...

As soon as I saw Blue’s post about عدنان و لينا (Future Boy Conan). I had to post my own version about my childhood addiction the one and only الرجل الحديدي (Roughly translated in english it means “Steel Man”) which was a Japanese cartoon that was dubbed in Arabic. I recently found out that the original name was Dinosaur War Izenborg (so how did we come up with الرجل الحديدي?) and it was ...

For todays Rewind, we are revisiting what is perhaps has become the greatest cartoon of all time. Future Boy Conan, most of our Arab readers including ourselves prefer the arabic title “Adnan Wa Leena”. As a kid we watched this show from the second it starts all the way to the credits (something people don’t do nowadays) and wait for tomorrow just to see what happens to the greatest romantic and dramatic story we’ve ...

Remember this TV ad? Its practically vintage now but its definitely one of my all time favorite Arabic ads so I thought it was worth revisiting. I love how they took something as mundane as toothpaste and turned it into a love story! Yes I cant help the fact that Im a girl and a hopeless romantic. One of the reasons this ad really stuck with me is because it came out at a ...
