Back in my childhood I couldn’t fathom a time where there would be no Saturday Morning Cartoons on TV. Heck, I would have never even foreseen the fact that I don’t even watch broadcast TV any longer. When I was 5 or 6 I can recall a very vivid dream I had of watching cartoons long after my normal bedtime. Perhaps it was a vision of the future where you could tune into dedicated cartoon channels on Cable. Now, just about every evening we end our day with a few cartoons.
From time to time I set up a playlist of cartoons to play on Saturday morning, those being late 60’s through the early 80’s. It’s fun to do that every now and then. Some of my favorites were “Thundarr the Barbarian”, “Dastardly & Muttley in Their Flying Machines”, “The New Animated Adventures of Flash Gordon”, “The New Adventures of Superman”, and “The Freedom Force” to name a few. I don’t just stick to animation, there some wonderful live-action shows as well. Great shows like “Land of the Lost”, “Electra Woman and Dyna-Girl”, and “The Secrets of Isis”. There are some that I used to love as a child that I just can’t watch anymore, but thankfully those are few and far between.
How about you? Any memories of a show, or shows that you lived for on Saturday Mornings? Leave a comment and let’s reminisce.
