    I remember in the mid-late 80's to early 90's; the USA network used to show all the old Hannah Barberra cartoons. Like yogi bear, grape ape gorilla, snaggle puss "exit stage left", quick draw mcgraw and the jetsons. And I remember when the hour would end, all the cartoon characters would get on the USA network train and ride out. I know can't be the only person that remembers this.

    I remember it It was called Cartoon Express IT ROCKED
    It's OK, next time I'll make you listen. I wish that it were in the power of all children to say that to their parents and to know that indeed they would be heard as we were in those wonderful days on Waltons Mountain.Narrator The Waltons (From the Runawa

    I remember the USA Cartoon Express when I was a kid. They used to run old Hanna-Barbera shows. Thanks to the DVD's. It features Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw and others including "Smurfs", "Help, It's the Hair Bear Bunch", "The Trollkins" and many others. Sadly I still missed the Cartoon Express. In the early 90's, the Cartoon Express had run the old Mighty Mouse cartoons as well as the Ninja Turtles and others. In the late 90's, it was the end of the road.

    Cartoon Express was awesome! And I'm not sure if this was related to it or just something that always used to come on around the same time or during the commercials, but was there a Cartoon Express or USA Network Kids club or something? You could send in and get a newsletter or something and they used to go around and talk to different kids who were in the club...I'm not sure, we never signed up for it.

    and old wwf wrestling on USA.


    On Sunday it played until WWF's All American Wrestling show came on.
    A bit of useless knowledge here but AAW was hosted by Mean Gene Okerlund and Hillbilly Jim.

    I remember USA's Cartoon Express. I think I might have the intro on tape....I remember all these characters on a train. I think that might be the intro.

    I also remember TNT showed the Flintstones and old Warner Bros. cartoons.

    I loved the Cartoon Express. Boomerang showed a bunch of those shows in the beginning, but have since stopped. I loved Grape Ape, Inch High Private Eye, the Galloping Ghost, Devlin, Trollkins, Space Cadets, the Biskits, the Herculoids, Space Ghost, and the list goes on...

    Cartoon Express was pretty cool. It used to air obscure Hanna Barbera shows like Clue Club and Roman Holidays. I also remember the USA Kid's Club.
