Saturday Morning Cartoon

Now that the feature-length movie is out, you might want to see the original.

4 barks and woofs on “Saturday Morning Cartoon

  1. It was — supposedly — a kid’s show, but they had some sly adult humor in it. But I think that would have been a tad un-sly.

  2. as a boomer kid I used to watch “Rocky & Bullwinkle” religiously. And even as a pre-adolescent I could tell it had a level of sophistication far beyond your average “Scooby-Doo” type cartoon, and that’s what hooked me. I was a big fan of Dudley Do-right (“Yes sir, inspector Fenwick”), Fractured Fairytales, Boris & Natstasha, and the whole Hee-Haw gang. BTW the animation work was done in Mexico (outsourcing!) for cost reasons- I met one of the animators that worked on the show a few years ago here in Texas. Pretty cool, eh?
    And this has jarred another memory from that same era- “The Soupy Sales Show”- another “smart” show presented for kids but the grown-ups could appreciate for it’s slyly subversive attitude. Ah, the good ol’ days!

  3. I also enjoyed Rocky & Bullwinkle and assorted characters as a child, especially Mr. Peabody & Sherman. However, as a kid I think I would have missed the fact that automobile traffic was not a big problem in 1799 Austria, nor would they hold a “Fourth of July” celebration… Details, details…
