Some Forgotten Shows

I doubt these would have won on your scale, but Rocky and Bullwinkle, George of the Jungle and Dudley Do-right were some of my favorite Saturday morning cartoons.

fresh perspective

Oh, man, good show. These last two episodes were fully grin inducing. I have been going back and revisiting my ideas about cartoons I liked as a kid for the past year or so, since my own kid is five and a half now. The process has made me revisit some long-held assumptions. My son unreservedly likes the Pink Panther cartoon, Spider-Man and his Amazing couple of Friends, and the Hanna-Barbera Godzilla cartoons. Not what I imagined. We had a few sessions of me trying to get him to sit through a whole episode of Road Runner before I just gave in and let him drive. I have to admit, there's something to the goofy bad guys from the latter two series, and there are really no boring parts. I might see what he thinks about classic Scooby-Doo now.

Thanks, guys. Jackson, I'm a fan.
