Win a Collection of 1980’s Saturday Morning Cartoons on DVD!

SurvivorsRemember when it was cool to spend Saturday mornings as a comfy little couch potato? If you’re a child of the ’80s then you likely watched shows like Tex Avery’s Kwicky Koala Show, Martin Short’s zany Ed Grimley, and The Flintstones Kids featuring adolescent versions of Fred and Barney.

A featurette on the history of Thundarr the Barbarian, called ” Lords of Light” is also included. You can purchase “Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1980s, Vol. 1” for $20.49 from Amazon. You can also try to win a copy here.

    Saturday Morning television was the salvation and payday of my week. It truly helped mold and inspire my imagination and my creativity and sense of humor as an adult. These shows along with LBS comforted a.d sustained my life through a tough childhood. Thank You.:-).

    I was almost too old for a lot of these cartoons (having turned 13 in 1980) but I do have fond memories of some of them. Heck, I eagerly awaited every new episode of Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends when it was brand new! And today my kids would adore these. Hope I win!

    I loved these cartoons! Cartoon network killed Saturday Morning. There’s no thrill in a 4 hour cartoon marathon anymore thanks to them (and the crap shows they call cartoons!).

    Even if I don’t win, I’m buying it. This is an awesome tribute to a better era for kids.
