What inspired you most as a kid to travel? Were you enchanted by adventures in books or by the heroes on TV? Travel Talk on Twitter (#TTOT) took us all down memory lane remembering which cartoons inspired us most to travel.

Today most people are inspired by what’s in front of them: the glossy pages of a travel magazine, blogs, travelogues, books, films, etc. But what about our experiences as a kid? Whether it was your first travel memories, family holidays, the stories you read in books before bed or Saturday morning cartoons… there is no doubt that these experiences inspire our travels around the world today. Thousands weighed in yesterday on this question, and so here are the top five travel-inspiring cartoons.
