I Don't Wanna Grow Up............
I still enjoy reading comics, watching (some) cartoons, and cheesy Sci-Fi!
But what inspired this post originally was my thinking about something that shaped my childhood/early adulthood that is no longer around. That is (drum roll please) Saturday Morning Cartoons! Now you can watch cartoons at any time of the day or night - and I do sometimes. But nothing can bring back the anticipation I used to have for the Saturday in September in which the new Saturday Morning Cartoon Block would be unveiled. Now, thanks to magazines and newspapers, I would already know what shows would appear and in what order. So I planned my viewing accordingly. Deciding which shows I did not want to miss. No tivo, No VCR back in those days. (After all I'm 60 - and almost a half). :-) Man those were the days.
Don't get me wrong. I wanted to grow up, have a family, but as Joni Mitchell so aptly sang "You don't know what you got - til its gone!"
Ya know - there are so many cartoon channels now, I would love to see one start running the Saturday Morning lineup (on Saturday mornings) again from the 60's and/or 70's. That would be cool. But I'd have to have my coffee. Milk just doesn't do it for me in the morning any more.
Everyone have a great day!
