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...

NOW look what you've done... you've made Skeletor ANGRY!

We put this off as long as we could in hopes that the tie would break itself... Skeletor and I didn't want it to have to come down to this, but in our last Friday Poll THERE WAS A FOUR-WAY TIE!!!

We simply can't leave it hanging like that, and so I have decided that THIS WEEK, it's a Battle Royale between those Top Four Cartoons of 1984 because THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!!

[Poll #1932818]

Also, I'd like to ask that you all do your darndest to pimp our next 1980's Saturday Morning Historical Reenactment Society Watch-Along on Saturday, September 21st (TWO WEEKS!!!) so we can have our biggest watch-along ever! You MUST know somebody who would like to watch cartoons with us on Saturday morning, don't you? Bring 'em along! It's FREE, and we promise that it won't get preempted by College Football or Golf :)

Just a quick poll for Friday, since I'm still nursing my daughter back to health after having her tonsils and adenoids removed yesterday (OUCH), but I had this poll half-way created before I stopped so why not post it?

Due to a 2-way tie for second place in our last Friday Poll which was to determine the Best Cartoon in the 1981 NBC Saturday Morning Line-Up, we'll have an odd number of entrants in determining this poll:

Remember that if you don't actually have any memories of watching any of these shows you can feel free to vote for the one you think sounds the awesomest :)

In our LAST Official Friday Poll, it was decided once again that the BEST thing on the CBS Saturday Morning Line-Up for 1981 was The Bugs Bunny / Road Runner Show. That show is UNSTOPPABLE!

This week, we turn our attention to the Saturday Morning line-up of 1981 as presented on your local NBC affiliate.

In last week's Friday Poll, it was decided that the best thing on ABC Saturday Morning in 1981 was Super Friends, followed closely by Thundarr The Barbarian which is good, since [livejournal.com profile] the_gneech probably would have left a fairly massive rant if Thundarr hadn't come in at least second place :)

Folks, I don't mean to insinuate that y'all are getting predictable or anything, but this is EXACTLY the same way the vote ended for the 1980 ABC line-up!

This week we delve further in to Saturday Morning of 1981 with CBS!

Last week it was decided thast CBS Television had the best Saturday Morning Line-Up of 1980, due in no small part to that perenial favorite "The Bugs Bunny / Road Runner Show". Will they be able to retain that title through this next round of Friday Polls where we discover who was the best of 1981? Only time will tell...

In our last Friday poll, it was decided that The Bugs Bunny / Road Runner Show was the absolute best thing on your Saturday morning TV in 1980. Shockingly, Thundarr The Barbarian came in second place while The Daffy Duck Show (which had ben voted as The Best Thing On NBC in 1980) recieved *zero votes*. Numbers are weird sometimes :/

And so we come to THE LAST 1980 POLL!

[Poll #1921386]

When voting, try to think of which one of these channels you would be okay with just leaving on ALL DAY LONG. Like, let' say your TV i broken and it only gets one of these channels - which channel do you hope you're tuned in to?

Last week you all voted the first season of The Daffy Duck Show as the best thing in the NBC Saturday Morning Line-Up over a pretty impressive list of contenders such as The Flintstones, Godzilla and even BATMAN!

Today is an ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN to determine which cartoon of 1980 wa the BEST. To make things even more difficult and/or fair, I've also included the runner-up from each network so the votes can be more evenly spread. And please remember... this is for *SCIENCE*!

Last week it was overwhelmingly decided by the members of this community that The Bugs Bunny / Road Runner Show was the bet thing on CBS Saturday Morning in 1980, with Fat Albert & The Cosby Kids coming in a distant second. I was saddened to see that my beloved Drak Pack cam in at a three-way tie for third with the likes of The Tom & Jerry Comedy Show and The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse and Heckle & Jeckyl. There's something wrong with you people... terribly, terribly wrong :(

SO! ONWARD AND UPWARD! This week's Friday Poll:

Time to instigate a tradition around here - THE FRIDAY POLL! Here we have, complete with hot links (in case you forgot what each cartoon was about) a poll to determine once and for all which was the BESTEST CARTOON IN THE 1980 ABC LINE-UP!

If you've never seen them, you could vote for the one you think might be cool to watch :)
