I'll be wrapping up Hal Sutherland Week with this simple poll, I swear! We'll be back to our regularly scheduled 1980's Saturday Morning Memories & Reviews come Monday,but for now... the man deserves tribute. SO our poll today is all about those cartoons of his that were in heavy circulation in the 80's! Please note that I *know* Star Trek, Waldo Kitty and Fat Albert are technically 70's cartoons, but they all had heavy circulation in the 80's so I'll allow it - Filamtion DC Super Hero stuff, however, had extremely limited distribution in the 80's due to the Super Friends owning that at the time...

[Poll #1953495]

My niece is graduating from High School this morning (SATURDAY MORNING GRADUATION WTF?!?!) so I won't have time for a REAL post to this community, so I figured I'd open it up for something fun and interactive if you're up to the task :)

WHAT WAS/IS YOUR CHILDHOOD SATURDAY MORNING RITUAL?

Although my *dream* wa to just have a great big bowl of cereal like good ol' Charle Phoenix does in the picture above, what I *usually* did was quietly sneak out to the living room with my suitcase full of Legos and turn on the TV. TV took a good 5 minutes to warm up, which was just enough time to go get my first bowl of cereal. In an hour or two, when we hit "The Dead Spot" of cartoons (the half-hour when nothing of interest was on), I'd go and make myself a PROPER breakfast, usually S.O.S. (hamburger gravy on toast - been cooking it unsupervised since I was 7). At about 10 or 10:30 my parents would wake up and tell me to stop making so much noise with my Legos and/or to turn down the TV (they worked late as bartenders), and then by noon the whole family was ready to take on the day :)

Your turn!
