    Was this during the time that they were showing Little Rascals too ?
    I'm pretty sure it was. Well, maybe. I know I used to watch it on TBS.

    That aside, does anyone here remember that Tom & Jerry TBS Funhouse or something. I think that was the name. It used to come on weekday mornings back in the 80s. I remember watching it before going to school every morning. I've been meaning to ask about this for a while. Was it called that, or was it something else? What was shown? I'm pretty sure the Merrie Melody/Looney Tunes were shown in the block, along with Tom & Jerry cartoons.

    If anyone has any tapes of the commercials and cartoons from those blocks, youtube is the way to go. I do remember TNT and USA in particular. The Pre-Cartoon Network days. Saturday Morning cartoons aren't what they used to be. Anyone old enough to remember when that's all there used to be on a Saturday Morning? (3 channels)

    TNT Toooooooooooons

    I remember they used to have bumpers with a tourist guy that would say that.

    Then they had some stupid "gogo and rudys(?) cartoon show (possibly parade) Then they took the toons off


    It's the Rudy and Gogo World Famous Cartoon Show.

    Rudy and Gogo...didn't remember the names. Almost forgot about them completly. Why did TNT remove cartoons? So it could be the drama channel?

    Yes, all they ever show now is either drama or sports.

    Anyone remember "TNT Shorts" which started with Fraggle Rock and then classic Bugs Bunny Cartoons back in the mid 80s?

    I remember watching Captain Planet on TNT. Then things went for the worst and cartoons were all gone. Then all there was, was Crappy-Made-For-TV-Movies, and things of that nature

    They may relaunch the Captain someday. In a movie or whatever. There getting to doing a movie on every other old show. I liked the show. It was entertaining.

    Does anyone remember the name of the show TNT had on weekdays during the early '90s where they showed nothing but cartoons? I checked Wikipedia, and all they do is mention a "TNT Weekday Cartoon line up" and that's it, but I'm pretty sure the show had a name. I also seem to recall TNT stopped airing the show around the same time Cartoon Network debuted.

    It was an hour and a half long show-- where I grew up in NY state, it ran from 6:30pm to 8pm-- and it showed all kids of cartoons: Looney Tunes, MGM cartoons (Tom and Jerry, etc.), Popeye, the Pink Panther, The Inspector, and even obscure ones like Hoot Kloot and The Ant and The Aardvark. It would also show weird shorts in between cartoons, all featuring a film production team in high speed. A skinny guy with a clapboard with the word "CLAP" written on it would come out, snap the clapboard, and something random would happen-- a stuffed lion would pop out and eat the director or something like that-- followed by applause.

    What jogged my memory about this was poking around RJ and finding [url=http://www.retrojunk.com/details_commercial/1545/]this ad[/url], which I remember seeing during the commerical breaks while watching this show. I thought it was cool that they dug out an old ad to go with the old cartoons.

    Yes, I remember seeing the Little Rascals (Our Gang) on TNT! They usually aired those segments early in the morning, before 6:00 or 6:30 a.m., and then they showed Merrie Melodies cartoons.
