On a Flashback Hodge Podge

Because I know some need a Saturday morning cartoon fix, I’m reaching back into the archives for readers to visit an early cartoon. I probably won’t introduce a new character until October, so hopefully this will help.

As I mentioned on the previous post, I am gearing down toward taking a blogging break. I’ll be back this week with Monday Morning Entertainment, where hopefully give the rest of my schedule.

Enjoy the cartoons. Which did you visit?

I wouldn’t call Snagglepuss my favorite character, but his unique voice and trademark sayings make him a classic. Enjoy this week’s cartoon honoree.
