LOL - I loved going to visit my relatives in Buffalo NY. Not only did they have five channels compared to Columbus' four, they got watch the above cartoons during weekdays, plus The Three Stooges.

WKBW had great cartoon shows every weekday - Rocketship 7 in the morning, and Commander Tom in the afternoon.

If you've watched David Boreanz in "Bones", his dad was a Buffalo weatherman who hosted Rocketship 7 back in the day.
The lithe and athletic Ultraman was quite a contrast to the heavily armored Johnny Socko - almost like Ninja and Samurai.

Stooges, little Rascals, and Warner Bros cartoons were the best, though.

Have a dusty full-sized 70's one in a corner of the attic. I rescued it from the trash when my folks moved out of the old family home.

You always wanted the red robot, because the neck was looser on the blue one.

...speaking of cartoons, did anyone else watch Davey and Goliath (was aired on Sundays in the Youngstown area)

Blast from the past.

Yeah we had Davey too.

We got three TV stations and it was always a fight between us 5 kids. We had absolutely NOTHING in the refrigerator. Maybe a chunk of unsliced bologna, some lard for cooking, and milk and cheese. Never had pop, cookies, or chips.

You ate dinner when dad got home and you were not excused until you finished your plate. That was your last food of the day. No night snacks. On Friday or Saturday nights, if you were lucky, you got popcorn cooked in a pan.

Of course back then the "fat kid" would not even be considered fat by today's standards.

My kids wouldn't know what to do back then.

Davey and Goliath was Sunday AM TV and wayyy too preachy for me and my sister. By the way another great cartoon that was ruined when it was turned into a live action film>

Saturday: Cartoons from early in the morning until American Bandstand. Then sports - any sports - the rest of the day. Often, two good cartoon programs were on at the same time. Decisions, decisions. I actually marked the tv guide. LOL

Favorite as a little kid: Daffy Duck and any other character. "You're diss-picable"! (sprays spit all over the place).



Favorite as a big kid: Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp. Yes, this was not an actual cartoon, but if you watched it at age 18, it counted as one. "Gee, Lancie..."

I remember Lancelot Link, basically Get Smart w/ Monkeys. Like Mr Ed they had to put some kind of balm on their lips to get them to look like they were talking, no way do animal rights folks let this type of thing happen these days. Best thing on the show was The Evolution Revolution, a psychedelic band of monkeys. Between this and all the Hannah Barbara stuff I think kid show guys were all on LSD in the '70s.

Talking about LSD, how about the old Disney stuff, Fantasia etc, that was some crazy $h#t. The Wizard of Oz, they lay down in poppies and sleep, and get awaken with snow. As I got older, I pondered some of those old time tales.

You might be right, but I know they showed Jonny Quest reruns on Saturdays, too. I think Ted Turner or somebody bought the original episodes and won't show them anymore. A shame, if true.

EDIT: Best cartoon...Jonny Quest.

That was the problem. It was a great game, until one robot's neck became looser, then it was never a contest. One punch and it was over. You could still scam the new kids in the neighborhood, though ... once.

As I recall, Davey and Goliath was produced by the American Lutheran Church.

"Oh Davey."

I seem to remember wrestling fitting in there somewhere locally. Soul Train also an option. There was a break between the good watching and the football games filled by some local Sat. morning news/community program. That was like the LONGEST half hour ever.

Used to "mentally" drive one along side the highway while looking out the window on long car trips when I was little. All the jumps and narrow misses.

No hand held gaming devices back then.

I believe the writers were doin' a little when they wrote that. Or, a sneaky reference to (laced) Lays potato chips, perhaps...

When I was a kid Democrats and Republicans actually worked together for the sake of the country. Dems checked out on that 15 years ago.

Had a handheld gaming device most of my childhood and I still did that.

One really can't totally appreciate the humor of the dancing hippos until they've been in a nightclub at closing time hunting a slump-buster.

Mr. Rogers, Captain Kangaroo, Great Space Coaster (complete with Gary Gnu), Rocky and Bullwinkle. In addition to those mentioned. Also, Superfriends was one of my favorites.

As far as prime time shows:

Dukes of Hazzard
Happy Days
Laverne and Shirley
Knight Rider
Threes Company
Fantasy Island
Starsky and Hutch
Mash
All in the Family
Brady Bunch
Jeffersons
Alice
Taxi
Bewitched
Different Strokes

Just off the top of my head. I remember Friday nights was Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Dukes of Hazzard. Two hours of what I thought was great TV. Oh how far we've come.

It was even better before that - Brady Bunch, Partridge Family, The Odd Couple - and Love, American Style if my parents weren't paying attention.

I thought Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley were Thursday nights? I remember that was my bowling night back in 1978 and I always watched them before going to the 9:30 PM leagues. I do recall watching the Dukes on Fridays.
