This article is so true!

Who else here is in my age group (30-40) and spent the 70's waking up, pouring a big bowl of Froot Loops or Trix and watching the SuperFriends, The Bugs Bunny/Roadrunner Show ("...oh what heights we'll hit..."), Schoolhouse Rock, the Hanna-Barbera stuff, etc.

Man, talk about the "good old days"!



I remember spilling quite a bit of milk in the kitchen, trying to make my own cereal at 4-5 years old, so I wouldn't have to wake up and bug my parents! Then I'd get all hopped-up on sugar, watch 4-5 hours of cartoons (cool ones too!), then go outside and find the biggest mud puddle I could splash into, or build a ramp from plywood and a cinder block so I could be a little Evel Knievel disciple.

You 70s freaks missed out on The Smurfs.

Fruity Pebbles + Saturday Morning 'Toons = heaven

Current kids are missing out. It WAS a ritual ...one that I loved. There was closure...after your fav toons were done you got up and did something else. Unfortunately nowadays your kids will KNOW that toons are available at ALL time during the day. The Magic is gone. Oh well life goes on...guess we all have our slice of life.

And McDonald's commercials with the Fry Guys...which looked like colored mops...

or the Kool-Aid man bursting through brick walls shouting "Oh Yeah!"

Frosted Flake and Kool-Aid commercials always had the coolest sports too...like dirt biking and other extreme sports.

The ABC Weekend Special with Captain O. G. Readmore? The Secret World of Og and The Littles?

Bionic Six, C.O.P.S, Captain N? Hahaha...

Dungeons and Dragons, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids??

Heathcliff? Alvin and the Chipmunks?? MASK?

Cheesy LDS commercials..."Who broke my windooooow?" "Why is my stomach all nervous and queeeeasy??"

I miss the PBS shows the most...Square One, 3-2-1 Contact, Newton's Apple, Voyage of the Mimi (with Ben Affleck... ahahhahahaha)

"Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Zoology...Science and Technology, it's fun you'll see!"

I remember when I was really little, I used to do that too.. I'd love Kix or Fruity Pebbles or Cocoa Krispies, and watch some He-Man and The Smurfs and Inspector Gadget.. god, I have a bad memory. But other stuff too

Saturday morning cartoons didn't do much for me. My parents neglected me and my sister tortured me as a kid so I ended up being raised by The Brady Bunch and Three's Company. On weekends I was a Love Boat/Fantasy Island kid.

Anyone remember Pitfall on the Atari 2600?
