More Than Just A Cartoon

Kids today are so lucky. They can pretty much get cartoons whenever they want. For me and other people my age, we had to wait for Saturday mornings.

The three networks definitely made it worth the wait. There were some legendary shows released back in those days.

Of course, one of my favorites was Schoolhouse Rock. It is funny how the television station programmers disguised education with fun. Yes, I really did learn from episodes of the show. It did actually help me with my homework.
