Subject: "After These Messages, We'll Be Right Back"

Written By: whistledog on 09/12/05 at 7:13 pm

Anyone remember those Bumpers on ABC Saturday Mornings where Claymation characters would inform us "After these messages, we'll be right back"?

Ya, I remember those...epecially the cowboy one.  It's funny how something so small can trigger so many fond memories, huh?

I know what you mean.  These bumpers were only like 5 seconds long, but they were a big part of my childhood.  lol

I love doing the retro threads.  I love that feeling of seing shows or hearing songs i haven't seen/heard in a long time.  Others should have that feeling :)

Most definetely! I LOVED waking up every Saturday morning to watch my fave cartoons in the 80's and early 90's. Those "After these messages..." were so imbedded into me everytime I'd watch the cartoons and the "After these messages.." came on, I use to get tired of the ones they'd use over and over again.. or I'd get upset when it would come on and I'd have to wait for my show to come back..

Oh my God! I thought I was only one that remembered that! I used to love those little shorts...although when I saw them it was in the '90s not the '80s but I remember the cowboy one  They were always claymation if I remember right. Wow, whoever posted this just brought back some fond memories. I wish I recorded those little shorts when I was a kid. :)

YES, I do! I mean, I had forgotten about it... but I remember now that you posted that picture. Craziness. :D Thanks.

I used to be up at the crack of dawn every Saturday morning, knowing exactly what I was going to watch and in what specific order. I loved Saturday morning cartoons.

There are more versions than those five. Last night, I came across an old VHS tape at my grandparents' and it had another one with the cowboy.  In this one, he jumped out of a small guitar case and began singing in a slightly higher tone.  It gets cut off though, so I don't have the entire piece.  If anyone has these on VHS or knows where I could purchase them, I'd be very happy to be notified.

I forgot about this thread.  The link to the clip was broken, so I replaced it with a YouTube link to the video :)

I remember that one yes.  There were also various other different ones.  One that springs to mind was an aminated one where this kid named Wilby is taking out the garbage, and his mother calls "WILBY!!" and in a sighing voice, he says "Right Back" ;D

LOL! ;D Another possible name for the "Funny Names - Simpson's Style" thread? Wilby Wrightback?


Btw...wasn't Wilby the name of one of the characters in the old "Shaggy Dog" movie? He was the human who kept turning into a dog.

I remember those too. I'm too young to really remember seeing them from the '80s, but since ABC still used those bumpers on there cartoons in the early '90s, I remember them well.
