Sigh... I remember going to sleep extra early in the morning on Friday nights so I would wake up extra early in the morning to catch all the programming on both Fox and WB. Between those two channels, I had my first taste of anime. Man those were the days...

I miss watching Kids WB. I don't bother watching Saturday morning cartoons anymore. Oh the days...

I used to wake up as early as 5 AM to catch the start of Saturday morning cartoons back when I was in early elementary school, those were good times. The last Saturday morning cartoons I remember watching were probably back in the early 2000's I would enjoy tuning in to some of the WB programs like Static Shock.

Too bad kids won't be able to enjoy that anymore. But the landscape has changed and a lot of families don't even bother with broadcast cable anymore since they can watch most things online. It's certainly more convenient this way. But it lacks the nostalgic charm of the old school morning cartoon block!

Gotta love the hate towards anime being spewed by a few of the commenters on that link.

I think the last time I really enjoyed Saturday morning cartoons was in 2005 back when 4Kids was the FoxBox, though I had religiously woke up at 6 AM every Saturday morning and booed the garbage that took over once noon arrived. For the rest of the day, I'd be out doing lawn work and cleaning the house while theme songs would continuously run through my mind.

When Cartoon Network was first announced, I honestly wasn't sure how to handle the concept of cartoons every day of the week. Heck, I was blown away when Nickelodeon began airing Nicktoons on Sundays. Prior to all of that, the only other time to expect a cartoon was during the holidays, like watching The Halloween Tree as a Sunday afternoon special, or, you know, the Simpsons.

Sigh, now television is plagued by network decay as we have a thousand options, but most of them are just reruns of their own shows for the bulk of the day. The internet is certainly killing it off a bit, but TV would be bearable if people would just combine their channels and effectively fill in slots with more programming. The CN does what now? Nine hours of the same three shows side-by-side five days a week, then follows that up on Saturdays and Sundays with Scooby-Doo movies? At least there's Toonami tonight. That creates a similar feeling as I prepare to stay up and watch as long as I can.

One of the comments are shown to be a good example of why America is hated deeply. Some things just will not change no matter what.

Saturday morning cartoons died sometime in the early 90's. (memory serving) American animation studios making new cartoons, or at least new seasons, near consistently with limited amounts of imports. Clearly I like the imports though.
We used to have cartoons before school, after school, Saturdays and Sundays!

I remember watching Sonic X, Kirby, TMNT, and other cool shows on Saturday mornings. I feel sad that they are now taken away.

Pity. When I was a child (and a bit older) cartoons were the shit. Now they drop all the subtle references/jokes that make cartoons appeal to older people/adults, and turn the shows to brain-dead crap.

The 80's and 90's had the best cartoons. Stuff from the 60's and 70's was very good too. Classics.
