    Any list that does not begin with the Looney Tunes just isn't valid

    I'm through the first 11, and I swear if I don't see "Kid Video" on this list somewhere, I'm going to be upset.

    For me, it was when Doug, Recess, and Pepper Ann were on. Doug was always a classic.

    I've read the first 5, and the fact that they couldn't come up with a list of 50 cartoons that didn't include "Hammerman" and "Ewoks" really says a lot about both the quality of the subject matter.

    I don't want to click 49 times to find out what is #1, but I'm with freestyle. If it's not Looney Toons, there's something wrong with the list.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    I'm through the back 25, and thus far, no Kid Video. Also, no Speedbuggy and the Chopper Bunch, Turbo Teen, Benji and Zax or Laff a Lympics. Street Sharks, however, a one season TMNT rip off, has been mentioned. I question the credibility.

    George of the Jungle
    Speed Racer
    Dudley Do Right
    Underdog
    and of course

    LOONEY TUNES

    Easily one of the worst lists ever.

    I take issue with the fact that many of the shows on this list weren't known for being on Saturday mornings. For example, Ducktales at #2 had an extensive run in the late 80's through late 90's as an after school show during the week, then had one season on Saturday morning in 1997.

    Also, anything on Nickelodeon that aired on Saturday morning also ran all week long at various different times.

    I'm now an old fart in his mid-50s but grew up during what I call the zenith of SMCs during the 60s. And that was back before there was 24 hr cable TV, and you only had UHF and VHF. My younger brothers and I would be up early laying on the living room floor in front of the ol' B&W TV waiting for the test pattern to disappear and for the networks to start broadcasting our favorites....

    Mighty Mouse, Heckle & Jeckle, Popeye, Bullwinkle & Rocky, Tom & Jerry, Deputy Dawg, the list goes on and on. You had Hanna-Barbera, Terrytoons, Jay Ward, King Features, and the old MGM and Max Fleischer shorts. Good times.

    And I loved watching Roy Rogers and Sky King. Never missed them.

    It's too bad that Saturday morning cartoons, for the most part, have pretty much disappeared. We get the Boomerang Channel on Directv which shows a lot of those old cartoons though.

    I find some of the cartoons on Nickelodeon and the Cartoon Network somewhat ridiculous and offensive with some of their material. I do like SpongeBob though.

    It's not a "Saturday Morning" cartoon, but right now, out of all the "new" cartoons, Phineas and Ferb is by far my favorite. Dr. Doofenshmirtz is one of the all-time great bumbling idiot bad guys...

    Bad list. A lot of cartoons based on video games and toys. Kid & Play? Really? I love cartoons. I have 28 DVDs of Looney Tunes and every Fleischer Brother's Popeye cartoon ever made in my collection. This is crap.
