Johnny Quest was the one with Hagi, right?

What about Penelope Pitstop? Snidely Whiplash? Courageous Cat????? Minute Mouse??
Top Cat???
Alice the Goon from Popyeye??
Does anyone remember Kimba the White Lion?
George of the Jungle??

How about the Banana Splits??

Does anyone remember a cartoon where the characters were actually marionettes? They were dressed in military outfits and seemed to be on missions all the time.

What about Land of the Giants?? They were always carrying around a huge safety pin with a bunch of string like it was a grappling hook.

That's how I watched Jackie Gleason and I'm pretty sure Ed Sullivan, too. I must have been about 6 or so..

Those shows were 8:00 PM shows.

I also loved Abbot and Costello. Their "Who's On First?" is my alll time favorite.

Also watched Laurel and Hardy every morning before school.

Abbot and Costello and the Limberger Cheese was my favourite. They had a lunch counter..and Abbot was the guy behind the counter. Costello was in the kitchen. Customer orders a limberger cheese sandwich. Stinky was kept under a cake dome and every time Costello tried to remove the cheese and offensive aroma knocked him down. Naturally, Abbot was loosing patience and kept after him to 'get in with that limberger cheese, already'. Costello's response was "if you think I'm getting in here with this cheese, you're craaaaaaazy". Priceless.

My bedtime must have been 8pm if I was watching Gleason in bed.

A lot of people don't know that The Flintstones was originally made for adults. It was shown Sunday nights, and it was based on The Honeymooners (another of my favorites, in reruns). I believe The Jetsons may have been marketed for adults as well.

Also, did you know that Star Trek was based on the show Wagon Train? They are both basically anthology shows that take place in a different local every week, with a core or regular characters and many guests.
