Day 16 – P is for Prodigious

Prodigious

(adj) remarkably or impressively great in extent, size, or degree.

 
I just had to pick this one, I just had to…if you’ve ever watched the show Digimon, you should already be smiling and nodding along right about now.

Being a child of the nineties, most of my weekends were spent watching silly, brightly-animated cartoons. And Digimon was one such brightly-animated mess of monsters and children and oh-god-the-puns. So many puns. My husband and I started re-watching Season One a few years back for nostalgia’s sake and the show is just dripping with awful puns that make you shake your head and groan every single time. It’s amazing. But despite it’s groan-inducing dialogue, the Digimon themselves were just the best. If I wasn’t such a die-hard Pokemon fan, Digimon would be top on my list.

The word “prodigious” was used extensively by one of the characters, an adorkable nerd named Izzy. He said it all the time. Seeing this word again instantly brought back all my lovely reminisces of the series and my childhood. *happy contented nostalgia-filled sigh*

Thing is, when I was actually watching this show as a kid, I didn’t even know what that word meant. Now that I’m sitting here staring at the definition, it makes a lot of sense. Yeah, those Digimon were pretty prodigious…I just thought he was saying it because it had the word “digi” in it!

I’ll have to add this one to my personal lexicon so that I can be an adorkable nerd too! How ‘bout you? Do you have any other quirky exclamations you like to use? Or if you’d like to reminisce about Digimon in the comments, reminisce away!

  1. A great word! 😄 I didn’t really watch Digimon, I was definitely more of a Pokemon kinda guy. Speaking of 90s cartoon with bad puns, I used to watch Spider-Man quite a lot. Aside from a AWESOME theme song, it was full of terrible puns! It was a cringe-fest rewatching it!

    1. Oh man, Spiderman had soooo many puns. I didn’t watch it very often, but it definitely made an impact. Haven’t thought about that show in a long while! Now I’m going to go look up the theme song and inevitably get it stuck in my head…
