If you were a child growing up in the '60s to early '90s, you know exactly what it means when you hear the expression Saturday Morning Cartoons. Saturday morning cartoons typically aired from 8 a.m. to noon and was the day broadcast stations revealed their latest series episode or newest cartoons. Sundays were left for reruns. So, while you wanted to work alongside Fred Flintstone in the '60s, join the Wacky Races in the '70s, play with Ninja Turtles in the '80s or join forces with Captain Planet in the '90s, you knew that Saturday morning was the time to meet with old and new friends alike.
By the '90s cable TV and a variety of cartoon dedicated stations, plus prime time animated shows such as "The Simpsons," "Family Guy" and "Futurama" changed all of that and cartoons were no longer just for the weekends but could be accessed anytime and nearly anywhere.
Whether you still love the antics of Tom Cat and Jerry Mouse or get into the social and politically challenged hilarity of "The Simpsons" you know that regardless your age or interest, there is a cartoon for you. But, how well do you know your cartoons? See if you can figure out which cartoon each of these animated characters appears on. It may not be easy, but it will be a good time!
