1975 Saturday morning TV:


Back then, Saturday morning cartoons were a staple for just about every kid. The only one on the above list I watched was Land Of The Lost. I was watching The Bugs Bunny / Road Runner Show and a couple of others during the times the above cartoons aired. I'm not sure if anybody remembers "Westwind" (myself included), because by 11:30 my parents usually made me shut off the tv and get on with the day.. I can still hear my folks: "WHAT ARE YOU DOING STILL WATCHING TV????? GET OUTSIDE!!!!!!" Hahaa.

I don't remember "Westwind." Also, I think everyone is handed a script upon becoming parents because they all seem to say the exact same parent-y things. Only now it's about getting off the computer.

So Marissa, do you have kids?? If so how many? I bet you'd make a great mom.

Thanks. 4 kids (not incl. Husband & Cat). Ages 24, 21, 14, and 11. My 14 yr-old has the same birthday as you. Christmas Eve b-day ever an issue with you?

I like all kids. And I see the Kid in EVERYONE, which is why your picture in the pantsuit is so cool.

Nope, my birthday was never an issue. I always loved the fact that it's Christmas Eve. That's a present in itself. We always celebrated my birthday a week prior, so I was the only kid I knew who got his gifts early. I did fine.

My kids would get up real quiet (don't wake mom), go watch some cartoons, then go outside.

Those were the days.

I watched Pink Panther and Land of the Lost, but I don't hardly even remember any of those other shows. I'm really surprised I don't remember the Planet of the Apes one.

joe said...

Yeah the Pink Panther was great, but I watched it on the weekdays. I don't remember the Planet of The apes either. I guess my memory's not what it used to be ;^)
