Episode #90 – Saturday Morning Memories

Certain entertainment mediums can actually lay claim to a specific day of the week. New comics has Wednesdays. Movie releases have Fridays.  Football has Sundays. But in the case of cartoons, there was a glorious time when cartoons owned Saturdays. Saturday mornings to be exact.  The only time when you wouldn’t need an alarm clock or beg your folks for just give more minutes to get up. No, you just knew. Your eyes would spring open and you would perch yourself In front of the tube for a few hours and watch a block of cartoons all morning long. It was a magical time, and the panel is going to go over their memories of Saturday morning cartoons.
