    I don't get that channel in Rhode Island for the past 5 years. So this was out of sight, out of mind. I was around for the beggining of the pokemon era.

    I tried to think, but had a hard time also. But then I remembered, "Oh yeah! Pinky and the Brain, Freakazoid, Batman, Animaniacs, Baby Looney Toons, etc." That was just on the WB. Before then: Disney Afternoon (Darkwing Duck, Gummi Bears, Chip N Dale, Aladdin, Tale Spin, etc.) and Fox Kids. I know CBS had cartoons also (ones that weren't stolen from Nick Jr.), but I don't remember if they had afterschool cartoons?


    I was actually talking about just the Kids WB Afternoon lineup. Did they even have an afternoon lineup BEFORE Pokemon? Because I know about the cartoons that you are talking about (ones on WB), but I only remember them being on saturday mornings. I can't remember if Kids WB had an afternoon line up before Pokemon, or what they would have had on it. Anyhow, my station is WPHL WB17. :p

    Yes, Kids WB had an afternoon lineup before Pokemon. In fact one of my best childhood memories was rushing home after school to watch Animaniacs and Freakazoid. This was in 95, before the time of Pokemon.

    As for the end of Kids WB, well...it was bound to happen. I havent cared about Kids WB since Pokemon took over so I wont be missing it. But this is another sign that with cable and satellite, regular networks cant survive and those that remember watching cartoons on regular networks will really feel old.
    WHAT?

    Hmm.... then either I just didn't watch my afternoon cartoons on the WB at that time, or I just have a really fuzzy memory, because I only remember watching Animaniacs on Sat. Mornings. Infact, the only cartoon I remember in the afternoon on the WB was Detention lol.

    I wish there was a place that had these afternoon lineups from the past and such....

    Here is what I find funny though is that ever since Pokemon first aired, it has pretty much become like Kids WB's flagship show.

    Those are all afternoon cartoons that I mentioned, yes. And you have to realize, also, that the WB hasn't been around for very long, which was why I mentioned the Disney Afternoon, because that was what we had on that same channel (WPIX) before it became the WB.

    They can't make up for -19 hours of programming with one extra hour on Saturday.

    True. I guess its because most of the shows are show during the week and on Sat., only like 2 are not, and they're sticking those in that hour.

    Yep I remember all these shows. I watched those networks till they died out. I just liked cartoons period. But giving all the cable networks all the cartoon attention is not major, since during those afternoon hours the shows arent as varied. I dont watch much afternoon shows but I did when I had the time, but this gen that relied on KWB for afternoon entertainment will have to do something else.


    Speaking of afternoons on Kids WB, look at the afternoon lineup of cartoons that had been around since the 70's and 80's where WPIX was a TV station in New York City from the days of pre-WB. This was taken from Radio-Info:

    WPIX-TV - October 1988

    2:30 PM - Tom And Jerry
    3:00 PM - Yogi Bear

    4:00 PM - C.O.P.S (the cartoon, not the FOX police show)

    WPIX-TV - 3/2/88

    2:30 PM - Spiral Zone

    3:00 PM – Smurfs
    3:30 PM – Ghostbusters

    3:00 PM - Tom & Jerry

    WPIX-TV (11 Alive) - 3/15/84

    2:30 PM - Superfriends
    3:00 PM - Tom & Jerry
    3:30 PM - Scooby-Doo Reruns
    4:00 PM - Mork & Mindy
    4:30 PM - Happy Days

    WPIX-TV (11 Alive) - Late Summer 1983

    3:00 PM - Tom & Jerry
    3:30 PM - Superfriends
    4:00 PM - Scooby-Doo Reruns

    3:00 PM - Banana Splits
    3:30 PM - Scooby-Doo Reruns
    4:00 PM - Tom & Jerry
    4:30 PM - Kroft Superstars


    And this one is from October of 1978, a month after I was born:

    WPIX-TV (11 Alive) - 10/25/78

    3:00 PM - The Jetsons
    3:30 PM - Fun World
    4:00 PM - Tom & Jerry

    Those are my memories from the good old days of WPIX.

    Starting today at 3:00 PM is your last chance to watch Kids WB Aftertoons shows. After 3 decades of running cartoons on local stations afternoon blocks, Kids WB Aftertoons will say goodbye for now! Good luck to everyone, I'm going to listen to the Aftertoon shows on my little AM/FM/TV radio.

    One answer: I wish the WB NEVER exist in the 1st place.

    And now for an update, Kids WB Aftertoon shows, the cartoon block that had been on for a while running "Pokemon", "Transformers: Cybertron" and other shows are pronounced dead. It ended at 5:00 PM, December 30th, 2005. For 3 decades, local stations carried the afternoon cartoon blocks such as WPIX-TV, KTLA-TV, WBNX-TV, WGN-TV and others including other outlets had finally come to an end. May it Rest In Peace.

    May god have mercy in our soul.
