Saturday Morning Cartoons, Part 1

I’ve been watching the tripe that passes for “cartoons” lately (and I only have free digital TV), and it. is. PATHETIC!!! Where did this “anime” crap come from, and who told those people they could draw??? And the stories! GAG. Either they’re preachy or they’re just plain stupid. So I’m coming to the rescue. Here is a flashback to the ‘good ol’ days’ of cartoons. Welcome to Saturday Morning… (I’ve got a bunch of these, so I’m starting an occasional series. And it might not even be run on Saturday Mornings! It could show up on a Tuesday! Cartoons are for ANY day!!)

So, without further ado, I give you a Tom and Jerry Classic… The Little Orphan.

    I don’t know about Saturday cartoons because we usually watch nickelodeon. But when I was younger I remember watching cartoons ALL the time before school! What ever happened to those? I don’t think there’s any cartoons on in the am now before school. Its all news.

      Check your local PBS station. We have three PBS stations, and one of them is almost always running cartoons. I know that some of them run before school. They’re directed at the younger set, with stuff like Thomas, Sid the Science Kid, WordGirl, etc., but they’re still not bad. I don’t know about cable stuff.

    I remember Tom and Jerry and I remember whatever cartoon that was with a bouncing ball that you got to sing along with… however, no cartoon consumed me like He-Man did. I even watched She-Ra once or twice.

    I can’t watch the video, but Tom & Jerry was always my favorite cartoon. When I was in middle school, a teacher asked what our favorite cartoon was. When I said, “Tom & Jerry,” his reply was, “meh, that one’s always so violent.” That was over 30 years ago. Sad, I say. If you can’t watch a fake animated cat and mouse get after each other without becoming warped . . . . Oh, and he of all people had a badass paddle, and he USED it. So much for nonviolence.

    Thanks for posting it, Laura. Was fun to watch it. I watched it with my kids and the starting music of the cartoon gave me instantly the chills, all those good memories ………

    Christopher loves Tom and Jerry. I miss the good cartoons and I miss that they were only on on Saturday mornings!

    The things that pass as cartoons nowadays are totally lacking. When did it become necessary for EVERYTHING to be educational? You know, looking back on the “good ole days” of cartoons, yes, they contained violence, but that didn’t make us violent as kids. We didn’t go around smacking each other on the head or in the face. They just made us laugh. They were simply fun to watch! I love Tom & Jerry, Bugs Bunny and his crew, Mighty Mouse, etc. It’s nice that now they’re available on YouTube and we can still check them out and share them with our kids.
