Saturday morning cartoons
...Today, as I was walking Max at the ungodly hour of 5:05 am,(it's true, I don't even run into God until 6:05) I engaged in one of my favorite dog-walking pastimes -- looking in people's windows... and believe it or not, at about 5:45 am, I saw a TV on. Anyway, it looked like a cartoon - which I could see given the technology of BIG-screen TVs...and it got me thinking about how much I loved Saturday mornings as a kid because it was 'cartoon day.' And then, given that I have no children besides my husband and dog, I wondered...do kids even have Saturday morning cartoons in the age of 'instant gratification" - like Direct TV, and DVDs and computers.
So, readers, please post a comment to enlighten me, and tell me if your kids sit in their pjs all morning to watch cartoons on Saturday...
Or tell me, (if your kids are grown or like me, you are out of touch with the Saturday morning TV lineup)... what were your favorites?
Mine were: (some are not cartoons, but other cheesy wonderful forms of weekend entertainment) HR Puff n Stuff, Land of the Lost, Scooby Doo, and Schoolhouse Rock, which featured such hits as "Conjunction Junction," "I'm just a bill,"and "Interplanet Janet."
..and for those of you who don't recognize them, those are the "Sleezstack." - terrifying villains of Land of the Lost.
