I grew up on Saturday Morning Cartoons in the 1970s. I do not know when they stopped, but all three of the main stations just showed cartoons when I was a child. I remember always looking forward to Saturday morning so I could consume my sugar coated yummy breakfast cereal and camp out in front of the television all morning until about noon -- just to watch cartoons.

I've tried to collect a sample of them for this diary, but there are too many to fit in any one diary, so if I did not list your favorite, please let us know.

Are you like me, do you still, after all these years, miss Saturday Morning Cartoons?

I've included the following in this diary:

Josie & The Pussycats
The Jackson 5ive
Fat Albert & The Cosby Kids
Yogi’s Gang
Superfriends
Hong Kong Phooey
Great Grape Ape
The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour
CB Bears
Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels
The Godzilla Power Hour
Bugs Bunny Road Runner Show

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
