Music video by Aqua performing Cartoon Heroes. (C) 1999 Universal Music (Denmark) A/S
"Cartoon Heroes" is the ninth single release by the Danish dance-pop group Aqua overall, and the sixth UK release. It is the first from their second album Aquarius. The song was their first release anywhere for over 14 months, due to the time spent touring the world, resting and recording the new album. Although regarded as their best song ever by some, it failed to follow the success of earlier tracks such as "Barbie Girl", reaching No. 7 in the United Kingdom and No. 2 in Canada.
The music video to the song was released on January 1, 2000, as the first thing on Danish TV, after the traditional church-songs, which normally last for about ten to fifteen minutes.
The song is a tribute to comic book superheroes, such as Superman and Spider-Man and other cartoon characters. The music video featured the four band members as heroes in outer space, saving the world from a large, octopus-like creature (a parody of science fiction horror movies such as Godzilla).
