Happy Friday everyone. Don’t you just love Friday’s? A time to go home and relax, and maybe sleep in on Saturday. Growing up I used to love Saturdays, mostly because of Saturday morning cartoons. One of my favorite cartoons to watch was The Jetsons, although I don’t believe this was shown on Saturday mornings. Of course I loved a lot of other cartoons like Alvin & The Chipmunks. Duck Tales, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to name a few. I think one of the main reasons why I loved The Jetsons so much was because it took place in the future. Another reason being George only had to work three days a week, How awesome is that? maybe that’s why I’m a wedding photographer. 🙂 j/k Remember those days?
What ever happened to Saturday Morning Cartoons? What will our children grow up with? I’m scared for todays youth, who are now growing up with cartoons like Family Guy and The Simpsons. Gone are the days where cartoons and shows taught a positive message. However, It is great that a lot of these cartoons and television shows are now on DVD, so we can share our youth with our children. Maybe I’m being a little bias because I’m a 80’s kid and I had a cup of nostalgia for breakfast, but there needs to be more shows for children that portrays a positive message. Even I am tired of seeing reality shows and crime dramas being broadcasted on every station.
What were some of your favorite cartoons and shows to watch growing up?
