>Bingo. They look like a setting or wallpaper some of those cartoons could be in.
One of my favorite aspects of old animation is the backgrounds. As much as people like to dump on Hanna-Barbera cartoons, I even like some of the stuff you'd see on some of their shows. Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! comes to mind, and of course Jonny Quest was well above most TV cartoons in terms of animation quality.
>Can't say that I do. I've seen stuff about Space Ghost floating around YouTube, but I've never heard of Herculoids. Although, after searching for images for it, I can't help but feel that some buried vault deep in my memories has been opened. I know I've never seen it before, but somehow it looks so familiar. Strange how that works...
I get what you mean. I wonder what causes that false deja vu feeling.
>Ah, the good ol days when your schedule revolved around the time your favorite shows were on...
The thing is that that was the only time I'd get to watch whatever shows they were airing on that programming block. I don't remember any of the shows that well, but showing old cartoons I'd probably never seen before was apparently enough of a reason to get me out of bed at 6:00 in the morning or whenever it was. Nowadays I don't even wake up until after 10:00 if I can help it.
>Me either. It felt that channel just became noise, more than anything.
Even some of the later cartoon from the Powerhouse period I never got into, like Codename: Kids Next Door or Star Wars: Clone Wars. I think Cartoon Network really jumped the shark when they stopped airing older shows in favor of nothing but original programming. It seems like the early 2000s were the last time when kids were given exposure to older cartoons on such a large scale. Nowadays it seems like people like to pretend older media properties in general don't exist unless they're popular enough that they can be used as fodder for remakes or sequels.
