I remember watching Robotech right before school each morning.

Also remember both versions of Voltron. The Lions one and then the vehicles one.

I liked Robotech to. There were 3 series I remeber the first one was pretty good, the second series sucked and the third series was the best they had motorcycles that became battlesuits or something.

One was definitely Speed Racer. Although they weren't cartoons, how about some Johnny Socko and his Flying Robot and Ultraman?

I liked He-Man, GI Joe, Voltron, Inspector Gadget, Flintstones, Scooby Doo. Bugs Bunny and Friends when I was much younger. I also remember getting up at 5 in the morning and watching the cartoon express on USA. The Laugh-Olympics were the greatest.

Now I'm partial to Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

I remember some of the Saturday morning cartoons being, Transformers, He-man, the Smurfs, the Snorkles (basically underwater smurfs), Looney Tunes, and I found the Hair Bears on Cartoon Network the other day. I was a little older, but my nephew would watch X-Men on Saturday mornings when I was babysitting him for a while. There were more, but I've slept several times since then.

I've noticed that there aren't really Saturday morning cartoons as I remember them anymore. Once shows like Saved by the Bell and City Guys came on, cartoons became extinct. Now it's educational type shows that they borrow from the Discovery Channel. Poors kids get enough education at school during the week. Bring back cartoons!!!!

At some point when I was a little kid, I realized that I knew about Mickey, but I had never seen him in a cartoon. To this day, I don't think I've ever seen him, other than introducing a skit on the old Walt Disney Show. He's kind of like the J.D. Salinger of cartoon characters.

By the time Inspector Gadget got over, I didn't have time to walk to school on time, so I was late nearly every day.

I also really liked the stuff that was rarely on, Like HR PufnStuf or Land of the Lost.

Oh, Mickey's done tons of cartoons. Disney used to show them in the mornings, after movies, he's done movies and shows.

But I must say I grew up on Disney.

There's a cartoon on the Disney Channel. I forget what it's called. But Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy run a club. All the Disney animated stars from all the Disney shows/movies come to eat dinner and take in a show. They usually show old cartoons. There's usually things that happens at the club that they have to take care of.

Yep, that's the one. I didn't really care for it either, but I liked to watch the old cartoon footage.

Speaking of old Disney cartoons, I think one of my favorites would have to be the one where Goofy does the instructional video. I think it was different exercise equipment. Something like that.

But I must say I grew up on Disney.

Disney put out a series of VHS tapes several years back that had a lot of the old Mickey/Minnie/Goofy cartoons that were so popular when we were kids. Even though my kids are older now, we still keep the tapes (until they come out on DVD) to occasionally drag them out to watch.

Rocky & Bullwinkle (Still crack me up)
Johnny Quest (Is Hadji an insurgent now?)
Popeye (Well Blow Me Down! WTF?)
Yogi Bear (Is Boo Boo Illegitimate?)

I know a lot of you like Disney, but I don't think Walt would like the meglo-mania greedy marketing Michael Eisner World Domination Disney Corporation. They've gotten waaaaay out of control.

Also, Looney Tunes didn't sell out (aka "Space Jam") until AFTER Mel Blanc kicked.

I disagree to some extent.....

I think if Walt were alive today, there wouldn't have been the lean years that Disney had before Eisner came along. Much as he is reviled, if it weren't for Michael Eisner, The Disney Corporation might have gone into the tank, especially with Roy running the company.

While I think that Disney is more about the money now, than quality of entertainment, they still know how to put out good family fare. And face it, who would you rather have owning Disney....the present situation, Roy Disney, Rupert Murdoch or Ted Turner?

They have at some level, maintained some of Walts' dream, but in cases where it means more money, they have modified it a little.

Let's so, there were so many. I remember scheduling life around cartoons when I was a kid.

Okay, when I was little (and I know I'm going to catch hell for this) :
Care Bears
My Little Pony
Smurfs
Jem and the Holograms
Pound Puppies
GI Joe
Transformers
Thundercats
Danger Mouse

Then as I got a little older:
Ducktales
Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers
Talespin
X-Men
The Tick
The Adventures of Batman
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


There's probably 9,000 more, but I can't think of them now. The real sad part is, I can still remember most of those theme songs.

You should have had it put on your underarm.


As an additional bonus, it would then appear if you raised your arms to fly like Underdog.

I liked to watch Underdog, Bullwinkle and all his buddies, Batman, and Scooby Doo. These days I really can't stand to watch Scooby Doo. Guess I didn't realize back then that every story was essentially the same.
There was a local program called Dr. Max and Mombo that showed all the looney toons cartoons. I always like Foghorn Leghorn, maybe because Dr. Max said it was his favorite.
