Saturday Morning Cartoons on a Saturday Night

I remember during the early 90's, every Saturday night, SkyCable used to carry ABC. I mean the ABC channel that carries LOST. Saturday night as a kid was pretty awesome back then. We got the US Saturday Morning Cartoons! Complete with the US Commercials!

What was on the lineup then? If memory serves me right, I used to watch Darkwing Duck, The Cowboys of Moo Mesa, Goof Troop, Land of the Lost, The Addams Family, Sonic The Hedgehog, The Bugs and Tweety Show, School House Rock, etc.

It was the best! Jonty and I got to stay up late since there were cartoons being shown on a Saturday Night!

It's sad that they don't make cartoons the way they used to. I still believe that the 80's had the best.

You see, if you were born in the 90's, chances are you grew up with Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and Disney Channel. It was different back then. Especially here in the Philippines, I had the local channels that carried cartoons.

So to have been in my early childhood with Saturday Morning Cartoons from the US was pretty amazing. That's why I feel I'm still a kid at heart :)

God bless Cartoons :)

I have to agree with you. I grew up with the 70's cartoons (especially the Hanna-Barbera ones) and hate the profanity of the cartoon network ones.
This is the first time I'm posting a comment on your blog, and on any blog. Been following yours since last year when I learned about it. I can see you're burning out. Take care, man! But keep on the blog!
