A 70's Saturday morning ritual:

Pictured above is a line-up of cartoons for 1974. My faves were Bugs Bunny, Hong Kong Phooey, and the Superfriends. My other fave was Land Of The Lost (not shown. I think they were CBS). I'd get up real early on Saturday morning, and sit in front of the tube and watch my cartoons with a bowl of cereal (I don't think kids do that anymore). My parents thought I was real quiet because I didn't want to disturb them, but really it was because I didn't want them to wake up because I enjoyed the 'alone time'. The only difference was that in my area, ABC was channels 5 and 12, CBS was channels 6 and 7. NBC was channels 4 and 10. Channel 2 was PBS, and channels 25, 38, and 56 were local Boston stations.
