They sent over a…

In the 1970's Saturday morning cartoons changed. Some would say for the better some would say for the worse. I am one of those people that think it was a bad turn. There were more cartoons being produced and very little had a significant storyline. Many of the cartoons were the same exact outline every time with a different villain or character. The originality of cartoons had left. More people wanted to see…

If you were a kid growing up in the seventies or eighties, how can you forget the Super Friends? In 1973, ABC introduced young children to a more kid-friendly version of the Justice League of America. The series was called Super Friends. The series ran on ABC for many years and it wasn't until 1984 that the series went into a break. ABC had enough episodes from the past that it canceled the series and started running the old episodes syndicated five days a week. Hanna-Barbera on…
