I am 30 years old and when I was a kid, I looked forward to every Saturday morning when cartoons came on. It was the only time cartoons came on in the early 80's. My favorite cartoon had to be the smurfs. And it use to come on for 2 hours. How, I don't know. Other favorites of mine were Rainbow Brite, Gummi Bears, Ritchie Rich (I even had the game), Snorks, Transformers, TMNT, and Alvin and the Chipmunks. Even today I think those cartoons are better than the ones my kids watch. So what cartoons did you watch?

All of those were my favorites, but you hit the nail on the spot with Smurfs.

I love Rainbow Brite, too! I also loved the Care Bears, the Smurfs, TMNT, Babar, The Flintstones, She-Ra, My Little Pony, My Pet Monster, Punky Brewster (I still remember an episode where they are given a million dollars and they have to spend it all, and it turns out the have change for a dollar left over, so they lose everything they bought.. I wanted to be her so bad!), Scooby Doo, The Raccoons, Strawberry Shortcake, and Alvin and the Chipmunks.

My favorite cartoon was Thunder Cats! Hoooooo! Sometimes I wish I could go back and watch those episodes. I did enjoy Gummi Bears, Snorks, Smurfs, Transformers, Chipmonks, Tale Spins, and Space Ghosts. They don't make cartoons like they use to. I still try to catch some Bugs Bunny and Tom n Jerry when I get a chance. As a kid I couldn't wait to get up and watch the early morning cartoons.

I always loved watching Felix the Cat, Popeye and The Smurfs. Now, I am 41 years old and I enjoy watching all the Disney movies with my children. I also started watching Japanese anime. My daughters got me hooked on it.
