Something I miss from childhood

Saturday morning cartoons ... back in the day when the only time you could watch cartoons was from 7 a.m. to noon on that one day of the week. I would get up before my parents and turn on the TV and sit there, cross-legged on the floor with a bowl of Cap'n Crunch With Crunchberries in my lap. Mom tried to get us to eat Heartland granola, but, alas, the Cap'n always won out.

I remember Josie and the Pussycats. The Bugs Bunny and Roadrunner Hour. Superfriends. (Batman, Aqua Man, etc.) And all those really weird, kitchy Hanna-Barbara short cartoons like Wally Gator and Huckleberry Hound. Oh ... and Scooby Doo.

It's Saturday today. I need to pay bills and paint the bedroom. But first, I'm going to enjoy my coffee on the patio, overlooking the water at sunrise. And then breakfast: Cap'n Crunch has been replaced with oatmeal, which is supposed to lower cholesterol.

Yeah, right.
Where do they get this stuff?
