I liked watching the old cartoons like Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny.
my absolute favorite was a somewhat obscure Sat. morning cartoon called "Rough and Ready". Probably the lone piece of worthless info I gleaned from my time watching the show was that "Munimula" (a planet they visited along with Prof Gizmo and his rocket) is actually Aluminum spelled backwards. I was a huge fan of all Looney Tunes cartoons, Popeye, Heckle and Jeckle and Huckleberry Hound.
I always thought the Hit Parade was a blast. Perry Como sucked.
Before there was space or time there was rock and roll.
I don't know if I had a favorite, but Bugs Bunny is one, Garfield and Friends Saturday mornings, Thundercats, Smurfs, Duck Tales, Tale Spin. And more I am sure I am forgetting
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
TGIF shows was the bomb.

mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Family matters, hangin with mr cooper, USA high. Also like home improvement, boy meets world, and saved by the bell
All of those were good, especially the last three.
My favorite cartoons were probably He-Man and Scooby Doo. As for regular shows, in addition to the ones mentioned, I'd say The Cosby Show, Growing Pains and Who's the Boss.
I forgot a out the last 2. Those were great shows. Also just remembered the show just the 10 of us. At least I think that was the name.
I remember watching that and liking it, but for whatever reason, don't remember many details about it. Maybe it was on another channel at the same time as one of the others?
We are either long lost twins or bffs
Captain Kangaroo and then a local show here in CR called the Dr. Max show. He was a local celeb who hosted a kids show with a clown named Mombo. They played cartoons like Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck...all the looney tunes, and 3 stooges shorts.
For cartoons, Bugs Bunny and Tweety. If I ever happen to find old Loony Tunes on cartoon network during the day, I will watch them until the show's over, no matter what I need to do.
The Quad Cities had Jungle Jay and then Capt Ernie's Cartoon Showboat. Lots of Bugs, Daffy, Elmer Fudd, Porky, Popeye and to top it off Three Stooges episodes. Great stuff.
Also, Hannibal/Quincy had Cactus Jim (all the shows were at 4:00 pm, just after we got home from school) where they had pretty much the same lineup and Cactus shilled Prairie Farms Milk. He also used to have kids send him cookies and he would eat them on the show followed by a big glass of Praiarie Farms Milk. That is until some bad kid or kids from Ft Madison sent him some chocolate covered dog turds. I leave the rest to your collective imaginations. All cookies from the kiddies ended that day.
Disney's The Mouseketeers...I was in love with Annette!
saved by the bell.
sportscenter before school

the howard stern show
wildon with brooke burke
Good call on GI Joe - totally forgot about that!
I'm younger than most here. I was really into Pokemon when i was younger so that and Scooby Doo were my favorites.
Scooby doo and his human were pot heads weren't they?
When I was a kid (the other old guys know this), there was very little color programming. So, cartoons would sometimes be in prime time. Johnny Quest started as a prime time show and was one of my favorites back then.
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
I hated Johnny Quest with a passion. I saw that show as one of the big declining moments (along with the rise of Hanna/Barbara cartoons like Huckleberry Hound) that started the trend toward limited action cartoons. About the only thing that moved on any of the Johnny Quest cartoons were the individual mouths of the characters. And I REALLY, REALLY wanted to put a bullet between the eyes of that insipid "Bandit:" who also never moved. I was weaned on Looney Toons and such great producers as Fritz Freleg(sp), Ritter, voices like Mel Blanc and REAL cartoons like Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Popeye (with BLUTO, not some wimp named Brutus), "Gremlins From the Kremlin" and so on. "Gremlins From the Kremlin" is a WWII classic as were many of the others that brightened up my childhood by being played on weekday afternoons by Jungle Jay, Captain Ernie's Cartoon Showboat and Cactus Jim. 4:00 pm in Fort Madison all the future preppies and hoodlums dashed home to see the greatest cartoons ever made, AND and episode or two of what we all simply called "The Boys", meaning the Three Stooges staring Moe, Larry and CURLY, no Shemp, Joe Besser or the other fatter guys they tried to replace Curly with.
I think that states it all. See if you can find "Gremlins From the Kremlin" somewhere. Great cartoon and great music too. Should I come up for air now?

I was strange even in those days, since I had the hots for skinny Darlene. Loved Annette's fun bags but something about her made me think anything beyond missionary position was verboten.
