Ahhhh....the good old days of Sat. morning cartoons. I used to wake up at 5am from the age of 5-14 and grab a Coke and chips and watch TV. No one was up in my house so I ate junk in the morning when no one knew. I grew up on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, old Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Garfield, Heman, She-Ra, Thundercats, etc. and when the cartoons were over it was Saved by the Bell and California Dreams.

i remember the original X men and Silver spoons on Saturday morning. Also spiderman and Captain Kangaroo. Thems were good times. Oh dont forget transformers - I just bought my hubby a Jeep transformer for Christmas last year, He loved it.


Feld, I dont have cable, I got rid of it 2 Novembers ago, sick of the crap on TV and figured we had better things to do with our time and 95.00 per month. So far so good, Missed the olympics though and that was tough, but my mom will record specials for us and we go to the video store a lot, But I hear ya about the crap on TV now adays. I dont think there is anything wrong with Video games, as with anything, in moderation. I find its too bad that kids dont or cant play outside anymore...

I run a Girl Guide unit and find it very frustrating sometimes that they do not know how to make their own fun, like we had to as kids. Then they get bored... its the TV man, thats my take anyway....

Its not that they don't know how to make their own fun its just that they don't want to :D

I remember growing up on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtals... just it wasn't the Saturday mornings I grew up on, I lived for Friday nights on ABC... yes TGIF! A run of Boy Meets World, Teen Angel, You Wish, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Two Guys and a Girl.
I've just recently learned the joys of Saved by the Bell... 90's Teen TV was good...

As for TV today its just a bunch of crappy reality shows and old ideas that try and give some kind of edge to things. Don't get me started on the OC, if you want to hear this rant though just say so... :D

I agree with you Claymud on the reality shows. The only reality show I watched was "The Osbournes" and I even gave that up because of all the damn whining.

A lot of the shows people here listed were aired in my area on weekday afternoons. Transformers, Thundercats, GI Joe, He-Man were all watched religously Mon-Fri between 3-5 pm. On Saturdays it was Superfriends, Spider-man and his Amazing Friends, Looney Toons, WWF at noon followed by 4 hours of Kung-fu theater. Nevermind the countless cartoons that aired one or two seasons and were never seen or heard from again.

Coke and chips for breakfast? My lord, how many times did you need the dentist as a child? At least in my house we turned to the good ole sugarfree standbys like Fruity Pebbles and Alpha Bits. She-Ra Princess of Power! She could kick Heman's butt any day :p
