    These are some of my favorites too, and I'm 8 years older than you. How does that happen?

    Bugs Bunny, Tom & Jerry, SuperFriends and The Tick are probably my favorites from this weak list. The Tick was absolute genius. SuperFriends seems painfully bad now but I got up early when I was a kid just so I wouldn't miss it. Plus, you can't beat Ted Knight as a narrator. "Meeeanwhiiile, back at the Hall of Justice..."

    Looney Tunes not number 1????
    I guess if they do a list of the greatest basketball players of all time they will rank Michael Jordan number 17 or so, or maybe leave Jim Brown off of the list of the greatest running backs of all time.

    Looney Tunes #1. It's stupefying how anyone could have it anywhere else.

    I must have been advanced for my age...or you were watching these shows in your mid to late teens.

    Also, I guess I won't argue with Land of the Lost, but if it's on the list, how can you not include Pee-Wee's Playhouse?
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    How is Pee-Wee a cartoon?

    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.
    You're right on the money. Where are Coyote and the Road Runner! My two favorites that did make the poorly researched list are Doug at #10 and Tom and Jerry at #32. Huckleberry Hound?
