You start to hear the sounds of the morning, the wind rustling the leaves, the chirping of the birds and that’s when you realize what day it is–Saturday! Cartoons! All week long you’ve been starved of cartoons, and now it is your time to feast! You throw off the covers, shove your feet in your slippers and sprint downstairs!

Grab that big bowl of C-3POs, adjust the antennae and plop down on the floor for your weekly dose of animated fun!

This is “Analog Agent Benjamin” coming at you this week with…. The USA Cartoon Express

While not really a Saturday Morning Cartoon line-up, The USA Cartoon Express was still a very big part of my childhood back in the 80’s.

Every weekday I had to try and force myself to get out of bed at 6:30 AM in the Morning, so I could get ready for another long day at school. The only good thing to come from this was that I could watch about an hour of classic cartoons from the 60’s & 70’s just before my Mom had to take me to school. It was think to this line-up of shows that I found out about classic cartoons like Scooby-Doo, Space Ghost, the Flintstones, and many more. And when the 90’s came around they started showing re-runs of cartoons from the 80’s as well. Sadly, when Cartoon Network went on the air in 1996, the USA Network canceled it and replaced it with re-runs of shows like Silk Stockings & Weird Science the Series.
