On Saturday Cartoons of Years Ago

I grew up during the golden age of cartoon … especially the Saturday morning variety. Hmmmm …. I just got a thought about a potential feature. Oh well, here are a few of the openers of some of my favorites. Enjoy and have a safe weekend!

Rocky and Bullwinkle

Mr. Magoo

Buggs Bunny-Road Runner Hour

The Jetsons

  1. Ya know, when I was young and had only 4 channels, my dad would wake me and my brother up at 6 in the morning and lie us in the living room for “Cartoon Day.” Cartoons now day are just interesting….

      Considering sharing this post with your dad as he may recall these for the golden age of cartoons. Well … at least in my mind. Thanks for sharing.

  2. My kids have no idea, that Saturday morning was the only time you could see cartoons…Now they’re on non-stop…How things change!

    Loved Rocky and Bullwinkle…That’s one my Dad would actually watch with us…I was a big Jetsons fan…Jane was hot!

      I can also recall a time when cartoons are on at 4 pm Mon-Fri. Now there’s an after-school treat. A lot of Popeye – the one many consider too violent, but they obviously don’t know what their kids are seeing on video games.
      Thanks for commenting.

      I like the opener to the Buggs Bunny-Road Runner Hour as all the characters marched across the stage. Talk about a parade of giants! How can one not want to cheer for each of them! And then to have Foghorn Leghorn as the topping on the cake!

      Thanks for commenting.

      Oh my … Top Cat … another one of my favorites back in the day. This is helping to convince me that I need to do a series on old cartoons. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. I forgot to add he also recently got into Hong Kong Phooey. It’s neat to me, because I use to watch the cartoon when it was actually on the air when I was a kid.

    It beats Sponge Bob Square Pants or some of the other cartoons out now.

  4. Wonderful, Frank. Thanks. And did you notice, not a parent or an adult insulted in the process. I hate today’s kids’ TV because it reinforces the fact that adults are stupid and that kids are superior. And then they have to function as adults and it’s not pretty.

      I must admit to not watching kids tv today, nor for sometime … so I will take you word for it. But I do shake my head about how parental groups attacked the classic cartoons. Oh boy … thanks for commenting.
