Saturday Mornings


I was recently reading a good comic book, and in the middle was an advertisement for Saturday Morning cartoons. It got me thinking about the world today. My kids will never have that joy or 8 to noon on Saturday's watching cartoons in your PJ's with a bowl of cereal. In between the commercials would be School House Rock, or the more you know. McDonald's with all the characters or toys you wanted or other breakfast foods etc... Now yes I know that they can go to youtube and see them, or go to HULU, Netflix, Amazon or whatever and see whatever cartoon they want when they want to. However, isn't the constant and instant gratification part of the problem now a days?

Don't get me wrong, when a Marvel show comes out on Netflix I'll binge it till its over. In fact I binge a lot of TV, waiting the week sometimes feels like torture. However I miss the fun and excitement of Saturday Mornings. Hell I miss Sunday mornings. Everyone else went to church, but I stayed home with the man watching Johnny Quest and Superman.

I know the joy is still attainable. For awhile MeTV aired the 60's Batman and Star Trek back to back on Saturday nights. My dynamic duo and I would watch it together before they went to bed. They couldn't wait each week. When Batman would start they would run around acting out the intro.

So to the tv stations, stop with the news that doesn't matter, or the things you call entertainment and bring back Saturday Morning Cartoons!!!

I loved Johnny quest, there was something exotic about it. As an adult I look back at some of the cartoons and realize ...hey there were pretty violent, even the three stooges were nuts. Now my daughter schools me to the fact that Scooby Doo and the gang were weed heads and when I tell her Winnie the Pooh is female , she asks ...well how come he/she never wears pants. Lol.....all something I never considered. Oh to look at things with a child's mind ...again.
Yeah......MTV = music television, bring on the music.

Yes, all of that. Tom and Jerry, my boys love it but so much explosions and fights. Or how you never fell if you didn't look down!!! Plus anything "sexual" was more innuendo, now its "drawn that way" lol
