I remember just about all of those. The Superfriends, Scooby Doo, and Spiderman were my faves, growing up. I don’t know why, but I also watched Penelope Pitstop … and the one with the pigeon (Catch that Pigeon?). Man, they don’t make cartoons like they used to….

Becky says February 26, 2009

I used to watch Scooby Doo and the Smurfs the most. I also watch most of the others you mention, except for Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels. I don’t remember that cartoon.

Totally great T13! ‘Captain Caveman’, ‘Space Ghost’ and ‘Superfriends’ – yes!

She says February 27, 2009

I watched those cartoons (some as a kid and some as a teenager). I love cartoons. I still watch them. I also watched Mighty Mouse and Heckel & Jeckel. I loved Mr. Jinx and Pixie & Dixie. Also Yogi Bear and BooBoo, Huckleberry Hound, Snagglepuss, Yakkey Dakkey Doodle, Quick Draw McGraw & Babba Louie, Herman & Catnip, Woody Woodpecker, Chilly Willy, Pepe LePew, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto, Goofy. Man, am I showing my age. When I was a kid we had cartoons all Saturday morning. We also had cartoons after school and from 7-7:30 every night. Those were good days for television and we only had 3 networks, PBS, and 2 local stations. You weren't afraid to watch TV even with your kids. Does anyone remember My Mother, the Car with Jerry Van Dyke? Or the Green Hornet (he was gorgeous, Van Williams was the actor)? Or Laugh-In?
