I could post more saturday morning cartoons from the early 80s but I don't want to post all night.

Also there is one 80s cartoon that I remember but can't find the name of. It was abunch of football players get turned into knights and transported to medieval times. But saturday morning cartoons were great in the 80s and they had memorable songs to

A major, major fan here. ABC was always my Saturday morning network of choice; they had the best lineups (including my all-time favorite in 1988-89, featuring Flintstone Kids at 8, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh at 8:30, The Real Ghostbusters at 9:30, A Pup Named Scooby Doo at 10:30, and Bugs & Tweety at 11), the best After These Messages bumpers (the Claymation ones being the all-time bests; I think the version where the hydrant squirts the dog is the best of the bunch), and the best intershow segments (Schoolhouse Rock, Captain O.G. Readmore, Zack of All Trades with Luther Vandross, etc.). Today's children don't really know what they're missing, that there was once a time when we'd be treated like kings for a couple of hours. While not every 80s Saturday morning show has held up--Mr. T's for instance now comes across as patently insane--by and large most still work well today. If only the culture could come back somehow...

Muppet Babies was great for the time (memorable theme tune like most 80s cartoons) but Fraggle Rock still holds up today. Very rarely watched Jem or Maxie's World, remember Denver the Last Dinosaur and Battle Of The Planets?

Faust1979; you're thinking of King Arthur and the Knights of Justice, rare cult item; barely remember it, but it did exist!

I loved Saturday morning cartoons. I used to watch the Smurfs, the Shirt Tales, Get Along Gang, a Pup Named Scooby Doo, and some that I'm sure I'm missing. I also watched USA's Cartoon Express. Did any of the rest of ya'll watch that? I loved Fraggle Rock too. It was the very first thing I watched back when we got our big satellite dish (remember those lol). I just don't like today's cartoons...at all. I liked King of the Hill but that was it.

Neat how when you were a kid, you knew exactly what you'd be doing on Saturday mornings...sittin' in front of your TV watching cartoons. So many great shows and memories...Scooby Doo, Flintstones,Laugh Olympics,Johnny Quest, Smurfs, G I Joe, Fat Albert, etc, etc....loved every minute of it. * I so wish I could teleport back there...just for one day...let's say 83' or 84'? * I find it sad when today's kids simply don't know any of these old characters...to hear the words "What's a Smurf" just kills me! At least with the live action flicks like Scooby Doo and Fat Albert, today's generation gets a little taste of our great childhood.

And while the era takes some flack for being vapid and meant to sell toys, the fact is many of the toy based shows still hold up at least reasonably well today. And the moralizing claim that is often given as well for shows of the era can also be rationalized for people who did genuinely learn something off them; Dragon's Lair, for instance, offers an introductory course to critical thinking, really ("If you were Dirk, what would you do?...Had he done this, this would have happened, but Dirk knew he had to do better than that, and instead did THIS...").

I was the worst child to wake up during the week. Temper tantrums in the worst way. But Saturday... I was up by 6am planted infront of the tv with my cereal. Could not wait for my shows to come on!
