Saturday Morning Cartoons

Remember when you used to look forward to Saturday morning cartoons? Sitting down on the floor in front of the tube with a bowl of Booberry cereal in you lap. Watching the antix of Daffy Duck, Quickdraw McGraw, and Top Cat or the heroics of Space Ghost, the Herculoids and Marine Boy. Well look no further, Warner Brothers has released this awesome two disc set called Saturday Morning Cartoons 1960s Volume 1! It's got all the greats like The Jetsons, Atom Ant, Frankenstein Jr., Secret Squirrel, Agent 000, Porky Pig , Ricochet Rabbit and more!

My favorites are The Herculoids and Space Ghost! Two great sci-fi animated adventure shows that set the bar for action television for years to come!

There's also a few mini-documentaries, The Good, The Bad and the El Kabong, The Herculoids: First Family of Planet Quasar, And Monster rock: The Adventures of Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossibles. The only thing missing would be some retro commercials, that would really set the mood. But you can't have everything.

This 5 hours of cartoon madness will help you retake Saturday mornings from all the stupid politically correct, boring cartoons that are on today! I watched one of the discs with my kids this morning, and it was awesome! There's also a 1970s collection, but I haven't bought that one yet.
