Remember saturday morning cartoons?

Recommended Posts

Why'd they quit doing it anyways? I am all grown up with a daughter of my own and I do not wish to suject her to crappy cartoon. I want my saturday morning shows back. The stuff that had every kid staring at the tv until lunch time. The only stuff (beside's certain holidays) that a kid will (on their own) wake up before thier parents.

I remember my mom getting mad at me for waking up early on saturday but refusing to wake up early on school days.

It's a shame kids networks don't really air a specialized Saturday morning block anymore. There's really no reason for kids to get up early on Saturday's anymore.

I know I lost a piece of myself when they took away Saturday morning cartoons. One morning I turned on the tv and and they were gone. Pretty sad.

My Saturday morning cartoons were in the 50's. 7:00AM until noon - in B&W - on NBC - on a tiny TV screen, but we loved them. Popeye, Felix the Cat, Farmer Al Falfa, Bosco, the time before Hanna-Barberra. (The Flintstones debuted on Friday primetime.) Sure, some of the characters would advertise, blurring the line between content and commercials, but, even as 7-year-olds, we knew the difference. Maybe it helped us grow a B.S. detector. Besides, so what if they were plugging Cheerios? I already had a bowl of them in front of me. The most egregious advertising, however, was when the Flintstones did Winston commercials.

I can't say the cartoons were better back then, but I know for sure that the experience of simply looking forward to your favorite series without a care in the world beats no other.

I remember them fondly. I would get up, and watch them just before breakfast. Its to bad they don't have many good ones on anymore.
