When I was a kid we didn't have cable. Where I grew up by Flint, Michigan we received 4 channels at that time. Needless to say then, we did not have 24 hour cartoon coverage. How did we survive?
What this meant was that children's programing was actually an event for us. Saturday mornings were cartoons, my life didn't start on Saturday until I saw the Looney Tunes and Scooby Doo. Sundays were movies in the mornings. They alternated between Abbott and Costello, Shirley Temple (which was a travesty for a young boy), Laurel and Hardy, etc.
I am off for part of the weekend to the in-laws so I leave you with the classic Abbott and Costello "Who's On First". Enjoy and have a good day.
