Subject: How important were Saturday Morning Cartoons to your daily routine?

Written By: SpyroKev on 06/11/16 at 6:03 pm

I'm one of the few people that didn't hype for Saturday morning cartoons. If I caught the block, cool. If I missed, shrugs. I was mainly the cartoons after school person. Especially since Cartoon Network was my home channel. The only year I was really into the routine was the peak of 4Kids as Fox Box in 2002. It was a really fun block. It seems to be so forgotten now.

I watched Saturday Morning Cartoons every week from 1991 until early 2000, without fail. It didn't matter if I was at my house, or staying at my grandparents house for the weekend, or with some friends on a Friday night sleepover, I was gonna be parked in front of a television set until about 12 noon on a Saturday.

In the early '90s, it was all about CBS (TMNT, Garfield, Raw Toonage, etc.) and ABC (Darkwing Duck, Goof Troop, Bugs & Tweety, etc.). In the mid '90s, Fox Kids (X-Men, Carmen Sandiego, Bobby's World, etc.) came into the picture, along with Kids WB! (Pinky & the Brain, Superman, etc.), while in the late '90s I was dedicated fan of One Saturday Morning (Pepper Ann, Recess, Science Court, etc.).

When I think of Fox Box I usually think of 2003 and 2004. Since the first half of 2002 was still fox kids.

But as soon as I became actually aware of the block at the time, it was launching into Fox Box which was exciting. Its a different story for me.

As a kid in the 2000s, I woke up around 7-8am on Saturdays just to go watch something from Nickelodeon, Disney Channel (before 2008), Cartoon Network, Toon Disney, PBS Kids, and Boomerang. I did sometimes watch Saturday Morning Cartoons, but not religiously. Besides, the mid 2000s showed a point of where Saturday Morning Cartoons aren't needed that much. Although, I do miss the days where every kid would wake up around 6-8am every Saturday morning to watch cartoons. That felt really special for them, even to me. I wish Saturday mornings were treated with respect still, since there isn't even a Saturday morning block on broadcast TV nowadays. It's probably because streaming services like Netflix are more popular, but kids should still wake up to something more exciting.
