I thought about doing this for my future children, but then I thought, "What if my parents made me watch the cartoons THEY grew up with?" I'll share my cartoons with the kids, but I won't deny them their "crap" either A lot of parents didn't like the cartoons in the 80s the same way some of us don't like the cartoons now. If I had to grow up on Woody Woodpecker and Rocky and Bullwinkle, I think I wouldn't have enjoyed cartoons as much as I did!

Prior the cartoons ran EVERY DAY. You had a Joe episode every day, monday to friday. And even with longer seasons, you still had a ton of episodes repeating during a given year.
Nowadays, there's no such thing as a daily show, it's weekly, so you don't need as many episodes.
Also, alot of shows now have longer storylines. Instead of each episode being completely self-contained, or two-parters, they are all part of one overall story with little chapters.
That's much harder to do in a longer season.

Im going thru season 1 of Animaniacs, and its still a brilliant show, be sure to show him that
"And I don't want the world to see me, cuz I don't think that they'd understand. When everythings made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am."

Old time Jonnhy Quest the first cartoon I believe to show death in a kids cartoon. 70's and 80's toons are the best hands down. This crap today they show kids I jus don't get it , no story or plot just senseless stupidity.

I ran across 80's Cartoons Central — All your favorite 80s cartoons! and I didn't realize how MANY cartoons we had in the 80s compared to now too. Seems like the options are alot more limited now. I understand that TV channels were more forgiving to toons and flops as today it's all about the profit and nothing about caring for the viewer.

I remember coming home after school to watch Transformers and GI Joe (and since we had like 2 channels including PBS - Heman). Sat. mornings were special because you had cartoons all morning long.
I remember when I was a kid a tv show had all new episodes Sept. - May. June-Aug were all repeats, so you could catch up. Now a days you have repeats during holidays, and mid season breaks.
Ah... the good old days.
