One of my fondest memories from childhood is of getting up early on a Saturday morning, staying in my PJs, making myself a huge bowl (or three) of Lucky charms, and settling in front of the TV to watch Saturday morning cartoons. I would watch them for what seemed to be hours on end.
My three favorites were: Scooby Doo, The Littles, and the Muppet Babies.
The Muppet Babies was my favorite because they got to go on all these cool adventures that took place only in their mind. No, they weren't hallucinating, they were just using their imaginations to take them far away from where they were.
I used to try my damnedest to do that, to use my powers of imagination to take me to far off places when I was a child, but alas it never worked.
Do they even have Saturday morning cartoons anymore? I haven't seen any in ages? But then again, early on a Saturday morning I'm usually not in front of the TV so perhaps I just never noticed.
Did you enjoy watching cartoons when you were a child? What was your favorite cartoon?
