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.

Musical families like The Osmond Brothers and the Jackson Five also appeared on ABC on Saturday to everyone’s delight.

In 1970, CBS had Fun! Funtasy! Funtastic Adventures on Saturday mornings. 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 could all be viewed on Saturday mornings.

Kids these days will never know who Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels were, with episodes like Cavey and the Weirdo Wolfman or Double Dribble Riddle. The nostalgia of 70’s Saturday morning cartoons will bring back happy memories to many. Those were the days!
