Two thumbs up to the person/people who started this…”Please change your profile picture to your favorite childhood cartoons or characters and invite your friends to do the same until December 6. Support the worldwide protest against child violence!” in the social networking site, www.facebook.com. It gave us the chance to go back to our childhood. Reminisce how we loved these cartoon characters.
I remember tuning in to ABS-CBN (one of the local stations in the Philippines) every morning except Saturdays and Sundays just to watch Cedie. He loves to play "Annie-Laurie" in flute and I love listening to that song.
Cedie or Little Prince Cedie was just translated to English in 1996 but it was an original Japanese anime entitled Little Lord Fauntleroy, also known as Shoukoushi Ceddie which was produced in 1988.
The story concerns an American boy named Cedric Errol (more fondly known as Cedie), who at an early age finds that he is the sole heir to a British earldom and leaves New Yorkto take up residence in his ancestral castle. After some initial resistance, he is joined by his middle-class mother, the widow of the late heir, James Errol. His grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, intends to teach the boy to become an aristocrat, but Cedie inadvertently teaches his grandfather compassion and social justice, and the artless simplicity and motherly love of dearest warms the old man's heart.
