A few years ago, after a particularly heavy night of drinking and nasty-ass hangover, I woke up on a Saturday morning feeling fetal. It was in that state that I decided that the closest I could get to returning to my mother’s womb was to watch some Saturday morning cartoons, for old-time’s sake. Only when I flipped on the networks, there were no cartoons to be found, just the weekday versions of those morning “news” shows.

What the hell happened to Saturday morning cartoons, y’all. I used to wake up at 6 a.m. on Saturday mornings just so I could catch Gummi Bears. And now? Matt Lauer knock-offs and infomercials.

In doing a little memory-refreshing research, I also ran across a few other shows that I either vaguely recall or don’t recall at all, which bear some mention. Shows like: “Monchichis,” “Pink Panther and Sons,” “Little Clowns of Happytown,” Captain N: The Game Master,” and ohmygod, do you guys remember John Candy’s cartoon, “Camp Candy” or the “Karate Kid” cartoon?
