They don't make weekend cartoons like they used to

Remember H.R. Pufnstuf...

(The show was a little too trippy for me, but I know I watched.)

Sigmund and the Sea Monsters...

(Loved Sigmund. Also, is it just me or was Johnny Whitaker the Joe Jonas or Sean Cassidy of the early 1970s? Fun fact: Johnny Whitaker was the original Scotty Baldwin on General Hospital.)

and Josie and the Pussycats?

(I was really into Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space. Also, did you know Casey Kasem was the voice of Alexander Cabot III and that Cheryl Ladd was Melody's singing voice?)

Sigh. They don't make cartoons like they used to. (Though I'm not sure that's a bad thing.)

So, what cartoons do you remember watching growing up?

The Banana Splits

Also, not a cartoon, but a classic kid's show - "Wonderama"

@Anonymous 1, Ah yes, Land of the Lost, the prequel to Terra Nova. ;-)

@Anonymous 2, I actually attended an episode of Wonderama, though was very disappointed as it was what was known as "filler," that is not a full show but bits and pieces to be inserted into other shows. That said, I got to see The Bay City Rollers perform live maybe 20 feet away from me. As for the Banana Splits, look what I just found!

@Ange, I remember The Bugaloos!

Bugs Bunny/Roadrunner was the constant, with others worked in around that, including most of the Sid and Marty Krofft oeuvre.
