    but they're still on tv, all those other shows aren't on public tv anymore. It's really quite sad.

    I cant stand Tom and Jerry. I don't like cartoons that make the kids root for the little guy who's stealing (Jerry) instead of the protective person stopping them (Tom)

    Ahhh, forgot about the turtles! I can still sing the whole theme song to them! Of course, maybe I shouldn't brag about that...

    TMNT was great, especially the few seasons they were on CBS...for a while there were some awesome shows on cbs sat. mornings. Sonic the hedgehog had an awesome one on...then later a really lame one on fox. The reason i left them out was because the ones i mentioned were more classical, not so much a product of recent decades (though one could probably argue garfield, but it wasn't too modern). Either way it's a shame that all these are gone...I've got to be forgetting some, i just know it.

    Eek the Cat cracked me up, what happened to it?

    >>eek the cat

    fox had this cartoon cabana thing on for a while 2 summers ago, it had eek, terrible thunder lizards, and one other i think. I taped every one of them. Collectively i have most of the eek episodes on video. One of my favorites had to be where they spoofed terminator with sharky...classic...but i can't forget that postman guy who was afraid of the muffin man

    >>how about road runner?

    he'd be included in looney tunes, but Wile was my favorite...shows these days (pokemon, power rangers, etc) are incredibly lame. Both shows are essentially the same every day, maybe the mosters are different, but they're the same. Wile E found a new way to blow himself up every episode. It even teaches the kids physics (except for the part where the edge of the cliff stays standing and he falls...).
