    Pink Panther, anyone?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    This fell into the "after-school" cartoon genre, though -- not really Saturday morning material. It, along with X-Men, was the gold-standard for cartoons in the 90s, IMO.

    I used to be sorry that kids today didn't appear to have cartoons with the writing quality and production values of Batman and X-Men, but I recently went through the first two seasons of "Avatar" on Netflix, and that's every bit as good as those shows were.

    We always watched/taped Batman: TAS in the afternoon.

    It wasn't a Saturday morning cartoon, but the end of this clip is an all-time favorite.

    YouTube - Christopher Walken and The Brain discuss physics

    As for actual Saturday morning cartoons, one of my best memories as a kid involves watching Saturday morning cartoons with my dad and laughing our tails off for the entire hour.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    In college, our regular routine was to overcome our hangovers with McDonalds' breakfast, Batman, X-Men, Animaniacs, and The Terrible Thunder Lizards (and Life With Louie I think). The new episodes were on Saturdays and repeats were on after classes during the week.

    Avatar is a great show. They're coming up with a follow up series centered on the next Avatar, a waterbender. Other good shows I watch with my kids include Ben 10, Adventure Time, Chowder, Flapjack, Total Drama series, and Batman: Brave and the Bold.

    When I had to have surgery a few years ago, my dad drove from Va. Beach to Asheville, NC to stay with me. While we were in the hospital waiting room, a Bugs Bunny cartoon came on the TV. We just started laughing and for a while, all of the nerves about my upcoming surgery were gone.

    I'd forgotten completely about Animaniacs -- that show was absolutely fantastic. I used to watch re-runs of that in college on cartoon network in the afternoons after class (mornings were for "Price is Right" and re-runs of "American Gladiators"). I remember watching that show and wondering how on earth any kid could be amused by the humor, at least 50% of which would go right over the head of anyone under 20. I mean, they had a song once with a refrain of "It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny / just a bunch of little specks about this size of Mickey Rooney."

    And, that's cool news about Avatar -- I just started watching season 3 this week. I'm clearly out of the target demo, but I'm enjoying the heck out of it. I should call my friend and thank her for dragging me to see the awful movie.

    MASK is a little far down the list. And Looney Tunes not number 1?

    And what about Captain Planet and Defenders of the Earth?

    Whilst they may not have been Saturday morning in the US the following definitely deserve a place above some others. Astroboy, Transformers, Battle of the Planets, Masters of the Universe, Babar, The Secret City of the Incas and Ulysees.

    This month is the 50th Anniversary of the first showing of "The Flintstones".

    13 episodes during the Fall of 1960. I believe it aired at 7:30 pm on ABC. Don't remember what Weekday it was. (I was only 2 years, 3 months.)
