    I grew up in the 80's; watching Gi Joe, ninja turtles, Transformers, Garfield, Muppet Babies...I could go on and on naming cartoons.
    But the crap they put now, with the E/I on the upper right corner,doesnt come close to the entertainment value of those cartoons.
    when did they start to wane?

    the 60's were great for Saturday morning cartoons. i used to go to cousin's house and watch them on color tv. Rocky & Bullwinkle, Bugs Bunny, etc., etc.

    They would show cartoons every morning, in fact. Reruns of what was shown on Saturday.

    What a bunch of maroons. When I was a kid, all I wanted was entire channels of cartoons 24/7, but I had to wait all week to see four hours of them. Now You queers are complaining.

    The cartoons are more pussified than ever and the kids are more sociopathic than ever. Go figure.
