Saturday Morning Cartoons
So there you are… It’s Saturday morning. You plod downstairs in your PJs (the ones with feet, if you please!), grab a bowl of Count Chocula, and plant yourself in front of the TV for (hopefully) the better part of four hours.
Starting bright and early at 8:00, the TV was yours. Your parents knew it. Your friends knew it. And most importantly, you knew it.
So what’s it gonna be? Maybe start off with a little Wuzzles, then on to The Care Bears (We love ’em!). ‘Round about 9:00 it was obviously time for The Smurfs for an hour or so, and then on to The Real Ghostbusters, maybe a bit of Pound Puppies, and then, before you knew it, it was 11:00. Time for Loony Toons! Bugs, Tweety, Yosemite Sam, and a Mr. Wile E. Coyote were all there to entertain you. The latter, especially, with his eternal quest to catch the Roadrunner (Fastus Maximus).
These days Saturday mornings are reserved for The Today Show, and other ‘grown-up’ programs (boooo!). If you want cartoons, well heck… flip to any other channel. Nick, Disney, Cartoon Network, even PBS. You can’t spit these days (and not just Saturdays) without hitting a channel that’s airing cartoons. All day. Every day.
Nope, Saturday mornings aren’t special at all anymore. May as well sleep in… or go fire up the Xbox.
We ♥ Saturday morning cartoons.
