    Quite the few in my youth though over time I’ve learned to better appreciate having made the time to regularly view George of the Jungle and Star Trek: The Animated Series. Oh, and anything with a certain Dick Dastardly and his sidekick Muttley…

    Heckle and Jeckle, Deputy Dawg, Bugs Bunny Road Runner hour, Shazzam, those were my Saturday favs. Sunday it was Rocky and Bullwinkle.

    Rocky and Bullwinkle ! Bullwinkle sees an obviously worried Natasha and says, ” Look Rocky, a woman in distress. ” Natasha says, ” Dis dress – Dat dress – I’m Distraught “. With lines like that, you’ve got to love this great series.

    My #1 has to be Jonny Quest – followed by other action cartoons like The Herculoids, Space Ghost, Fantastic Four, and Spiderman… all during the late 60’s. In the early 80’s I also really enjoyed “Spiderman and his Amazing Friends” which included the characters of Firestar and Iceman (my personal favorite). And yes for sure, The Bullwinkle Show, Bugs Bunny, and the Road Runner were great. Cartoons just aren’t the same anymore.
