Saturday Morning Cartoons is a term referred to the line-up of cartoons that ran Saturday mornings in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

Generally these were animated, and many were genre (science fiction, fantasy or horror).

Scooby Doo and The Jetsons were two such shows that were popular. Jonny Quest was another such show. Many remember fondly Spiderman and Rocket Robinhood, despite the poor quality graphics, the backgrounds that were used and reused and reused.

Star Trek had an animated series, that “bridged” (pardon the pun) the gap between the classic series from the 60s and the first motion picture in 1979.

What were your favorites?

The Flintstones? Top Cat? The Jetsons? Jonny Quest?
Beany and Cecil? Masters of the Universe?
Jem and the Holograms? Thundercats?

Do you remember…

Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle? Return to the Planet of the Apes?
Speed Buggy? Jabberjaw?

And do you remember some of the live action series…

Shazam! (with animated sequences)?
The Secret of Isis? Jason of Star Command?

Join Troy Harkin and David Clink as they recall the many shows that comprised the Saturday mornings of our childhood. Maybe some of your faves will be mentioned.!
