| Some of these cartoons being mentioned are making me believe that I'm about eight or nine years old, sitting in the family room in my pj's and watching cartoons on a Saturday morning.
Speaking of Saturday morning, how could I forget the greatest Saturday morning program of all time:
Hulk Hogan, "Macho Man" Randy Savage, Andre The Giant, "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase, Sergeant Slaughter, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, George "The Animal" Steele, The Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, Junk Yard Dog, Tito Santana, The Hart Foundation, The British Bulldogs, Koko B. Ware...
They were not human beings to me. They were gods.
Inside this grown-up body, there is still a little Hulkamaniac...
Mike F.May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

| I loved so many... All I can think of right now are (think young child):
I loved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Alvin and the Chipmunks
I loved The Land of the Lost, but it was a newer version that didn't last long
Are You Afraid Of The Dark? (on SNICK)
Pirates of Dark Water
David the Gnome
The Care Bears
Rainbow Brite (hey it was the 80's)
I loved any animal shows like Jack Hanna's Animal Adventure

| wow! stevenpd! You did watch a lot of TV. Sad thing is is that I watched most of those shows too, so I spent a lot of time in front of the telly too! Nowadays, parents won't allow kids to watch that much TV as we did when we were kids. But then shows are different now than they were when we were kids. |
So true, so true. I even remember two more that are not on my previous list: Soap and The Gong Show (Mean Gene, the Dancin' Machine) But I also found time to do other things.

"Jim has no idea that the huge Nile crocodile was stalking him. Closer and closer and then, with amazing speed, the brute makes its final lunge. Although Jim leaps out of the way, he still would have been a goner if it weren't for the lifeline tied around his waist. Fortunately, we were able to pull Jim out of harms way. With Mutual of Omaha as your lifeline, you too can be prepared to meet life's sudden emergencies. Mutual of Omaha..."
Wonder what good ole Jim's doing these days now that he doesn't have to sell insurance.
Ya'll drive safe and come back soon.
