    Default Saturday Morning Cartoons: An Epitaph

    Well the CW has given up on Saturday morning cartoons. The last major broadcast network to do so. I know there are still some on cable, but its not the same.
    I guess I always thought they would be there. When one series was cancelled another way replaced into that time slot. Oh there were a couple things to watch on cable like the USA Cartoon express or Snick... but that was before Cartoon Network showed up. Then the channels stopped doing it. NBC and CBS used to be huge on cartoons, with a few live action shows thrown in, but they got beat out by FOX, ABC, and the WB. With UPN hanging on by its fingernails. Spielberg and Disney mostly. And then they stopped showing cartoons before and after school. After that ABC dropped out... not even doing the Magical WOrld Of Disney any more, let alone the good old shows. The others rather than make their own began buying anime from Japan, then editing the hell out of it until it was 50% commercials and 50% Confusing.
    Cable channels started keeping the shows to themselves instead of airing them on broadcast networks first.
    Next Fox and the WB were showing the same thing and the the WB gets replaced by the CW.
    Rather than deal with them a lot of cartoon creators went for direct to DVD stuff, where they did not have to listen to know-nothing network executives.
    Then the CW was the only one left. Without competition they got lazy. Showing reruns over and over until people were sick of them, sticking in a few shows designed to sell cards and toys every now and then to pretend they had something going on.
    And now... its over.

    I'd like you guys who read this to come up here and say a few words about the Saturday Morning cartoons you used to know and love.
    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    Eh, it was a cool thing obviously when you were younger but I haven't cared about Saturday Morning Cartoons for at least a decade now. Sad to know they are slowing RIPing though.

    This is pretty sad, such good memories with Saturday morning cartoons.

    But honestly it's not much a shocker. Lots of kids nowadays will probably be watching their shows on their iPad over Netflix anyway.

    Actually Vortexx kind of sucked. It was the equivalent of that last bowel movement before you die.

    I adored King Arthur and the Knights of Justice. Nostalgia still overwhelms me when I watch the oath they took. Great Saturday morning cartoon.

    The day Vortexx disappeared my younger brother called me woundering where his frecken Staurday morning cartoons went. I realized before he called which was funny us being 23 and 24 at the time. We then reminisced about the good old days, waking up early and watching our favorite cartoons. Best one was Cadillacs and Dinosaurs.

    Dang I guess my son will grow up without knowing the good ol' days. I remember racing home after school to watching afternoon cartoons, and then Waking up at 6am on saturday morning to catch all my favorite shows.

    I didn't even sleep on Fridays and sometimes Saturdays, lest I miss any of them.

    Remember Sundays and the USA cartoon express?
