1. The TV in our house never went on before school

but of course there were cartoon shows in the afternoon hosted by local hosts dressed up as some homey type character such as "Dr. Max" or "Cap'n Ernie." The afternoon shows usually went from 3 to 5PM.

They lasted a few years beyond my youth but went away in the '79s or so.

2. Never on week days. Not sure there were any except on Saturday morning.

I can remember sneaking downstairs on Saturday mornings to watch them. With only 3 channels, there weren't any cartoons on weekdays.

4. I recall, in the late 50s...

There were cartoons on some channel before my siblings went to school, my mom thought I could be entertained while the others got ready for school. Later, in the early 60s Bugs Bunny and the Flintstones were on prime-time on week nights - one night/week. Then, can't recall when, cartoons were relegated to Saturdays and that was that until The Simpsons. Granted, there was a major gap in my teevee viewing as I was busy rolling around the country for months on end.

6. I remember weekends when only kids were watching. The...

local channels bought the cheapest shit they could find and nobody was in the control room.

Modern Farmer and a few others weren't too bad, but the cartoons they got were hopeless. Half the time the speech had nothing to do with action, but you didn't care because you couldn't undrrstand them anyway.

7. I do, with my kids. :)

Didn't have TV when I was a kid.

Although not a cartoon, my favorite show was Fury.

17. I loved watching

Fury and Andy's Gang on Saturday Mornings. Bob Diamond, the young star of Fury, went on to co star in the Twilight Zone classic, In Praise Of Pip. With Jack Klugman and Billy Mumy.

8. The news was always on before school.

I loved watching Batman: The Animated Series after school. On Saturdays after dance, choir, and orchestra, my dad always recorded ( taped) Iron Man, X-Men ( Uncanny, I think), and Silver Surfer so that we could all watch later.

24. I also enjoyed Gambit.

As a native of Louisiana, his "cajun" accent amused me . My favorite characters were Storm and Beast.

9. I remember that.

I grew up in the 70s and 80s. They also played The Little Rascals, Harold Lloyd, Specterman, and other old shows. I loved that stuff!

10. Never on school days

Saturday was Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour. And then whatever followed; Jackson5, Super Friends, Scooby-Doo, Fat Albert,….

After school was either Lost in Space or Star Trek. And eating soggy Cap’n Crunch in milk. Ah, the memories flood my hard drive.

I need to be alone now.

12. On VHF stations, Saturday mornings meant cartoons

And also, way back in the day, The Flintstones was on in prime time. By the late '60s, all cartoons were moved to Saturday mornings. UHF stations had syndicated animated programs such as Astro Boy during the day on weekdays, and later in the afternoon The Little Rascals and The Three Stooges.

Daytime programming on VHF during that time was wall-to-wall soaps and game shows.

The advent of cable in the 1980s began the decline of Saturday morning cartoons, and before-school cartoons, on the main networks.

16. My parents watched whatever the CBS morning show was weekday mornings

We got to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings, and Rocky & Bullwinkle were, if I remember correctly, on Saturday evenings. My Dad insisted on Rocky & Bullwinkle more than we kids did.

I used to watch re-runs of PBS science shows in the afternoons - then they went to all kid stuff all day.

18. Saturday morning cartoons were a given.

But I also watched “Star Blazers” avidly on weekday mornings before school.

19. Programming in Cleveland featured weekday toons at 12 pm and in the afternoon

Odd assortment of children's programming and hosts: Captain Penny, Barnaby, and Woodrow.

Any Clevlanders out there?

In the early 60's the CBS affiliate aired Clutch Cargo around 6 or 7 am, before Captain Kangaroo.

26. Oh yeah! Ghoulardi hosted the late night Shock Theater line-up.

For a brief time he also hosted a Saturday afternoon/early evening film, just before Jackie Gleason.

Ghoulardi was as big a cartoon as anything else on the air.

20. I don't remember cartoons in the morning, but then we didn't have a tv

until I was in 2nd grade. The only cartoons I remember watching were the Saturday morning ones, plus Andy's Gang, the Lone Ranger and Sky King. I think the Mickey Mouse Club came on in the afternoons after school.
