I never watched anything on Saturday afternoon, but I loved Garfield and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on Saturday morning. I also loved the show named Fudge that went for one season in 1995-1996. It was based on the Judy Blume children's book character.

God bless you and Judy always!!!

Growing up in the 1970s, Saturday mornings were awesome for television. I had a lot of favorites from Saturdays but also during the week. For starters, these were the first that come to mind as favorites:

I hate to point out the title of this thread

Unless Tom and Jerry & Porky Pig show were reruns of classic 1930s cartoons, the only good thing on this list is Top Cat.

You had a lot of Hanna Barbara cartoons. Which were partial to full animation, as opposed to the full animation classics like Bugs Bunny. The later japanese cartoons were partial animation, you could tell because only one character talked or moved at the same time.

Most Hanna Barbara stuff was either mediocre or just plain terrible. Although I feel nostalgic fondness for Scooby doo, it hasn't aged well at all....but The Flintstones, Top Cat & Yogi Bear are still funny to this day. I NEVER liked The Jetsons.
