A Requiem for Saturday Morning Cartoons
It’s pretty easy to lose track of what Saturday morning television looks like, once you transition from spending that time playing to spending that time nursing a hangover. So your correspondent was more than a little floored to discover (thanks to /Film) that Saturday morning cartoons are over, dead, gone, pushing up daisies, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible. The CW (the good ol’ CW, God bless ‘em, they keep tryin’) was the final broadcast network to program a Saturday morning block of cartoon shows; that block aired for the last time over the weekend. It’s the end of an era, folks, so forgive me for getting a little nostalgic.
