We need to bring back THESE KINDA SATURDAY MORNINGS!

I woke up this morning and all I could think about was how much I ABSOLUTELY LOVED Saturday mornings as a kid.
Some of my FAVs!
In my house, my mom would still be sleeping after a long week at work (single mom). I would get up super early, fix my own breakfast (I was probably 5 or 6), usually a bowl of cereal with more sugar than any other ingredient and a big ol' glass of OJ or maybe chocolate milk I mixed myself with that cocoa powder  - yum!

Then I would plop myself down in front of the TV...well, hold up, rewind, first I would physically turn the knob on the TV set to make sure the right channel was on...we only had 3! And then I would adjust the rabbit ears to make sure the picture was as clear as possible AND THEN I would cozy up in my Strawberry Shortcake sleeping bag and watch all my favorite cartoons for hours. 

Some of my favs: 
Jetsons (So futuristic!)
Smurfs (dreamed about being Smurfette!)
Popeye (eat spinach = get big muscles)
Fat Albert (hey, hey, hey...can you imagine if we had a cartoon about a fat guy nowadays?)
ALL Looney Tunes cartoons...especially the Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote (it was all about a coyote trying to figure out a way to kill his buddy...check out these ground rules of each episode I just found on the internet here)

Other notables: 
Scooby Doo (so fun to try to figure out who was the bad guy!)
Tom and Jerry (they were just crazy!)

Man, oh man, I really loved Saturday mornings!

What were some of your favorite Saturday morning cartoons?
