Ah, what a great week for classic cartoons. This weekend I finished watching Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1960s Volume 2 on DVD and just last night I took a break from my busy Halloween schedule to watch Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1970s Volume 2 on DVD. Retro overload! I watched a lot of cartoons every morning and if you got up early enough you could catch the cartoons of the 1970s in the 1980s and I did that every Saturday morning. So I was lucky enough to enjoy all of these and it this DVD set it like saying hello to a good friend.
