Put On Your PJ's and Pour a Bowl of Captain Crunch

Flash back to 1969 any Saturday morning. A small boy of 7 years wearing cowboy pajamas settles in front of the TV with a heaping bowl of Captain Crunch cereal. He is glued to the television for hours watching cartoons. This leads to a lifetime love of all things cartoons. Flash forward to May 26, 2009. A not so small man of 46 wearing jeans, t-shirt and swilling from a heaping glass of Guinness is glued to the TV watching cartoons. Coming in exactly two weeks is the DVD release of Saturday Morning Cartoons 1960s Volume 1. If you are my age this is a no-brainer purchase.

Have fun watching and re-watching all of these. I liked the Jetson's. My whole family watched the Flintstones.

I don't think we got all of those over here, I particularly like the look of Atom Ant :)

big win for the Mighty Bruins last night - bring on game 7!

now the Canucks are gone (sob) I have all my eggs in the Boston basket as I have bet a fair bit of cash on your boys to win the lot, so here's to the bears!!

And don't worry, I'm already planning to embroider the Canucks logo, been on my todo list for a while! :)

MArine Boy was awsome. He was able to breath underwater by chewing 'oxy-gum'. Those crazy guys!

Hey Davey—What? No Jonny Quest on this DVD?! Jay's gonna be really disappointed. That was his favorite. Maybe it’ll be on Vol. 2? I’m glad to see the Flintstones and the Jetsons made it. They were my favorites (when we could commandeer the TV away from Brother George that is! LOL!) I was looking for Pow Wow the Indian Boy--oh wait, wrong decade, I'm really dating myself now, that was back in the 50's...hehehe! Ask your wifey if she remembers our Mom waking us for school with that famous line—Up and at ‘em Atom Ant!
Keep up the great work, Dave. We love your site! Luv, Donna
