    It's hard to grow up from the things that you like. Saturday morning cartoons was a tradition that was around from close to 4 decades. Everything from the cartoons, the cereal, the fun of waking up early to watch your favorite shows, etc. In this video, you will see from the start of the late 70s to the beginning of the 21st century just how tenny boppin' programming killed and bastardized this once fun tradition

    Fun is not scripted, it's experienced!

    I keep asking myself why I hurt so much over all the great stuff from the 80's and 90's.
    Some of the emotion comes from knowing that you care so much Radiocage.
    It really means a lot to watch your video because you care and it shows in your presentation. You grabbed some great toons for your "before" side.

    But the smile on my face goes away fast cuz I know what's next - the "after" side!
    Give me credit. I actually tried to watch "Horseland" a couple of weekends ago.
    Oh lordy, that was the longest half hour in my Life! Downright painful to watch.
    I know this new stuff isn't for me but kids shows used to be fun.

    Where is all the fun stuff nowadays?
    The Eldorado is dead. Long live the Eldorado.

    I watched some of the videos. Some aspects I agree with, others only partially. For the most part, I felt that the Disney one was kind of off. For the older stuff, you did mostly animated stuff, like the movies. For the Y2K side of it, live-action. If anything, you should've compared live-action with live-action. Disney Channel had its share of live-action programming in the 90s, like Flash Forward, Ocean Girl, Ready or Not, Babysitter's Club, The Sinbad Show, Adventures in Wonderland, So Weird, etc.

    The only balance was probably the fact that Mickey Mouse Club was mentioned and can probably be linked to High School Musical, although, Kids Inc. would probably fit more since, from what I remember, Kids Inc. had a whole lot of singing and dancing since the show was literally focused around.

    There are better things to do on a Saturday anyways like getting out of the house or sleeping in.

    Teeny bopper bullshit about sums it up. I really could care less personally as I'm not a kid anymore, but I do feel bad for little kids that don't have cable or satellite.

    Even where there was less animation on Saturday mornings in the 90s it was still cool. Those bratty teeny bopper shows are what is killing Saturday mornings.

    Radiocage, this video is the truth. Even though I think Saturday morning cartoons started sucking a little before the 2000s, I think this is a fine video.

    People are probably thinking "Who needs Saturday Morning cartoons? Kids have Cartoon Network."
