Saturday Mornings Are Just Not The Same

I’m up early this Saturday Morning and decide to flip on the TV and considering I have over 500 channels I decide to check out the cartoon choice, but where are all the cartoons? They may call them cartoons but what I remember as cartoons is not what is playing now.  We had maybe 5 channels on a clear day and every channel seemed to be playing cartoons and good ones at that,  stuff like,Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, Tweety Bird, Superman, Scoobie Doo, Aqua Man, The Justice League, Johnny Quest, Casper, Popeye, The Road Runner, Wile E Coyote, classic stuff that my Friends and I would watch faithfully every Saturday and marvel at their adventures while eating our Frosted Flakes or whatever Cereal Mom had bought that past week, and we would stare at the TV while dripping milk on the floor that we were sitting on instead of the table, after all Cartoons were always better viewed from the floor. But where are the Acme safes being dropped on fictitious characters, the over the top silly violence that we all knew was fake has been replaced these Saturday Mornings by video games and pornographic videos on Much Music, kids shows like Dragon Ball and Yu-Gi-Oh. Just give me Dastardley and Muttley in their Flying Machines or Sabrina the Groovy Ghoulies any day over today’s crap.  But, I guess I am just an old fart, but In my view they were the better times, but alas Saturday’s are not the same.
