Today Was The First Day Without Saturday Morning Cartoons In Over 50 Years

I certainly have fond memories of Saturday morning cartoons, but I can think of scores of things I’d rather my kids do instead of staying at home watching TV all day. I am no TV snob — I love me some Star Trek and have recently watched Doctor Who and the 1980s BBC Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, but we are in charge of how much we watch and when. Saturday morning TV was when my sister and I woke up ridiculously early to watch dubbed episodes of Star Blazers, but it’s also when I saw the horrible episodes of Tom & Jerry when they were supposed to be friends. (Ugh!) So there was plenty of mind-numbing crap on, even during the days my nostalgia is supposed to recall fondly.Today Was The First Day Without Saturday Morning Cartoons In Over 50 Years.
