    Saturday mornings the must watches were as follows:

    Bugs Bunny/Road Runner
    The Jetsons
    Wacky Races
    Dungeons and Dragons

    edit: Oh, and Thundercats

    During the week when I got home from school it was Scooby Doo, then the Flintstones on TBS.

    1984, obviously. In my case, replace The Jetsons and Wacky Races with Kidd Video and Spiderman and His Amazing Friends, and that was MY list!

    They weren't still showing after school re-runs of Gilligan's Island during your era?

    I think my initial rumblings of sexual attraction developed around Ginger & Mary Ann. I used to dream of Mary Ann feeding me coconut cream pie, while Ginger softly blew kisses into my ear.

    The only HB cartoon that I remember liking was Super Friends. I had somewhat of a remote interest in Johnny Quest, but if I remember correctly, it was a short lived series with only enough episodes to count on one's fingers and toes.

    I also had a remote interest in Scooby Doo, but even at a very young age - like, immediately out of my toddler years - after a few episodes, I always wondered why the Mystery Gang kept putting themselves through the bullshit, when they can simply walk up and rip the mask off whenever they see a monster.

    Aside from that... I agree. Buford Files, Captain Caveman, Jabber Jaw, and all those HB cartoons were garbage. However, I could tolerate the Flinstones.

    I might have to concede that the concept of Jonny Quest was cool. The opening sequence was intriguing and the cast of characters were also very interesting.

    However, once you got into an episode the story telling quickly became hackneyed and lackluster.

    I'm surprised that some movie studio hasn't snapped up the rights for Jonny Quest and turned it into a movie. That concept would also play well if turned into a high end XBOX or PS3 game.

    Yes, they were...and then I think it was Saved By the Bell.

    I watched some episodes a couple weeks ago. I have a new appreciation of it now that I'm older. Mrs. Howell was hotter than either of the other two.

    Not sure if you're being facetious there, but considering she (Natalie Schafer) was in her mid-60s at the time, she really didn't look too bad. Plus, she had to overcome the dowdy look her character was given.

    As for me, I was and remain a Mary Ann guy.

    You can be sure about it. That's just my little buddy taking a well aimed pot shot at my sensibilities.

    I'll go ahead and call you lazy and lacking ambition.

    Why be merely a Mary Ann guy?

    I am a Mary Ann & Ginger guy!

    Didn't that entitled little son of a bitch get his start as a newspaper comic strip character?

    I shudder to think what our socialist friend Rusty has to say about that elitist prick of the funny page.

    You only look up to Richy Rich because you are firmly implanted in the bourgeois section of the funny page with the Family Circus.

    Not realizing that you are only a mere panel away from the bottom of the page and the likes of hilly billy trash like Snuffy Smith, Lil' Abner, and those two lousy bottom feeders, Mutt & Jeff.
