I really miss the Saturday morning cartoons :,-(


We used to get up so early for Saturday morning cartoons that the TV was still in static (remember when TVs had static?), and we'd just sit there and watch the static until the cartoons came on.

I think they don't have Saturday morning cartoons anymore because of channels that have them on 24/7 now. They don't need to dedicate a whole morning to them anymore.

Great post Captain!

My favorites:
The_Captain wrote:Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special
treat.

We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank soda pop with
sugar in it, but we weren't overweight because....WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!!

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride
down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into
the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at
all, no 99 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no
cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat
rooms..........WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no
lawsuits from these accidents.

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who
didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of.
They actually sided with the law!

Yeah I was cut once, but then bounced back the next four years, then I stopped playing.

Cartoon Network use to play all of these when I was growing up. And like Birdman, spaceghost and Jonnhy Quest. Now they most of them on a Channel called "boomerang". Wish I had it.

And some of these still do apply. I still play catch, frisbee, hacky sack, and baseball with a tennis in the street amoungst other games. Inventing games is very fun. And Riding bikes still does kick ass.
;-D
Keep it lit.
