Jonny Quest, yes, cool airplane! Ooooh, scary guns and explosions...hovercrafts... jet packs...bathyspheres...oh my, how ever did I grow up to be a law abiding tax payer watching such harmful influences!

My favorite cartoon show was, and probably always will be, Rocky and his Friends, with Bullwinkle, Boris & Natasha, Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman, and Fractured Fairy Tales. Best cartoon show EVER. I also liked Speed Racer. I never saw Jonny Quest, probably because I was either in college or in the Navy when it was on the air, but I bet I would have liked it.

Bugs bunny and friends, Cecil the sea serpent, Yogi Bear, Rocky and Bullwinkle.... Remember commander McBragg, Dudley DoRight and Mr Wizard and Sherman?


I can do all of their voices still to this day.

I can still remember Batman coming on at 7Pm Tuesdays eastern time when I was a little kid.


Somehow...I actually grew up.... I think. :biggrin:

Rocky and Bullwinkle was without a doubt the most intellectually sophisticated cartoon. As a kid, I obviously didn't appreciate such references as "Captain Wrongway Peachfuzz". (google "Wrong Way Corrigan")

Their use of historical parodies was second to none and their puns were delightfully attrocious. And even the ending credits contained the infamous (and totally fictitious) Executive Producer: "Ponsonby Britt".

Try to find some Robert Louis Stevenson on Saturday morning now:

Marine Boy and Speed Racer were 2 of my favorites, along with Hong Kong Fooey. Other Saturday morning shows that I watched that were not cartoons...Banana Splits and Sigmund the Sea Monster. Thanks for this thread, nice to go back to those times...sitting in front of the t.v. on Saturday morning with a BIG bowl of Cap'n Crunch in front of me!

We didn't have a TV when I was growing up. Didn't have indoor plumbing either. Between the two of them I would have picked indoor plumbing.

I learned early on that all the cool stuff came from the Acme Company by watching W E coyote and the roadrunner.

Also, dont forget the Pink Panther!

I worked with a guy, my boss kept telling me to ask him about Roadrunner cartoons. I finally did one day, and this guy went off on a twenty-minute rant about how much he HATED it, said it taught children that no matter how hard they plan, work, and execute, they will never succeed. Come to find out, this was an obsession with the guy, he had even mounted a letter-writing campaign to Warner Brothers about it.

Dragons is so stupid.



BTW I bought J. Quest series on Amazon. I assume it's still available. Be warned, it just isn't the same as watching it when you're 8 YO.

Saturday morning went to hell when the Japanese illustrators took over. Once most production went there, it was all Evil Emperors and fantasy duels vs. thinly disguised Samurai. Ick!
Even as a kid, I thought the Clutch Cargo series with all the real mouths moving superimposed over poor art was goofy. Never wanted ta see any of the Speed Racer crap either! Rocky & Bullwinkle was abut the only two-dimensional cartoon I liked, more for it's intellectual content. Gimme the old(er) MIghty MOuse type of art and music:D

Did you watch those on Channel 8, WGAL?

March 15, 2012, 11:29
Yeah! Probably. :D
Only ones remember before those was Kukla, Fran & Ollie and The one with "Lamb chop" in/on/about 1960-1 in Harrisburg
I was told that as a little scooter. I usta sit in the phono drawer of the combo unit and plaster my face against the screen when Howdy Doody came on....but I don;t remember much from age 4 0r so;)

First time I had TV was after I got married, but by then, I was
used to indoor plumbing.

When I was a college sophomore I had a cousin who was the
projectionist at one of the better local movies. Percy swore all
he had to do to fill the house, no matter the feature, was to get
word around campus that there would be a Road Runner cartoon.
'Course, this was back in the 50's. There were a lot of us then who
weren't raised with indoor bathrooms or TVs.

Man, this thread is a return to my childhood. Even the creepy Clutch Cargo cartoons. The biggest part of my Saturday morning in Indiana was the Three Stooges on channel 6 in Indianapolis. Admitted, it wasn't cartoons, but they would give any of them a run for their money!

So you remember those cold winter runs to the outhouse? Ha!

The upstairs in our house wasn't heated and it just had wood planks for flooring. I use to hate crawling out from those warm covers and putting my bare feet on that cold floor. Then you had to make the 100yd dash through the snow to the outhouse. It was either that or use a chamber pot and clean it in the morning. It was a banner day when my dad turned my mothers sewing room into our brand new bathroom.

Our neighbors had TV and one of my cousins also had one. So it wasn't like I didn't get to see one once in a while. However, my father sure wasn't going to spend money on a TV when we needed everything else. My mother drove him nuts begging for a freezer. Up until we got one all our meat was either fresh killed or canned in mason jars. Same with all our veg and fruit. My mother even canned cherry juice and grape juice from our fruit.

Thanks, we have that channel but most of the time they only show newer cartoons. Mostly Power Puff Girls and Johnny Bravo. Any idea what time of day they play the classics.

No Captain Planet? I think I'm the wrong generation for this discussion, but I remember how annoying Captain Planet was even as a kid. I did watch it sometimes, though, either out of irony or boredom.

EDIT: I did see and enjoy a lot of the classic cartoons listed so far as re-runs.

Along with the Saturday morning cartoons, I remember reruns of the 1940's Republic Studios B westerns. Three Mesquiteers was my favorite, but I also watched The Cisco Kid, Range Rider, Hopalong Cassidy, Roy Rogers (who I actually met in person many years later while working at a gun store in Los Angeles), Whip Wilson, and probably a couple of others I don't remember at the moment. They were always on early in the morning, from about 8 to 10 a.m.
