Back when kids ate Count Chocula or Boo Berry cereal for breakfast, Saturday mornings were a big deal when it came to TV! There were shows and cartoons that featured the Harlem Globetrotters, Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp, The Archies, American Bandstand or Scooby Doo.

You might even learn something if you weren't careful, thanks to the catchy educational ditties of Schoolhouse Rock.

You could even step inside the magical world of ABC when musical families like The Osmond Brothers had their own cartoon, as did the Jackson 5ive, The Brady Kids and the Partridge Family 2200 A.D.! Superheroes like Shazam to save Saturday mornings or The Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Show to laugh and be entertained by.

In 1970, CBS had Fun! Funtasy! Funtastic Adventures on Saturday mornings. With Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Josie and The Pussycats, Archie’s Funhouse, The Monkees, Dastardly and Mutley in their Flying Machines and The Perils of Penelope Pitstop. Later on, CBS Saturday told kids that if you turn us on, we’ll turn you on! With new classic cartoons like The All-New Popeye Hour, The Bugs Bunny/Roadrunner Show and The Super Seven. Who can forget Fat Albert and the gang or some of the lesser-known superheroes like Web Woman or Black Manta!
