C is for cartoons

Is there anybody out there who didn’t spend Saturday mornings as a kid in front of the TV watching cartoons? I know I did. Even on black and white TV (yes, I’m that old ), cartoons were a staple, and the weekend didn’t really start until after the last “th-th-that’s all, folks” from Porky Pig.

But how good is your memory of those cartoons? I thought today it might be fun to have a cartoon quiz. How many of you know who spoke these famous lines?
1. “Yabba dabba doo”
2. “What’s up, Doc?”
3. “I tawt I taw a puddy tat”
4. “Exit, stage left”
5. “Boy, Ah say, boy”
6. “Andale! Arriba!”
7. “Beep beep!”
8. “”Don’t have a cow, man!”
9. “Sufferin’ succotash!”
10. “Be vewy vewy quiet, I’m hunting wabbits.”

So, how did you do? Get them all? If not, go here for the answers.

Cartoons have changed immensely in the past few years and every once in a while, I’ll watch a few minutes of Spongebob or Dora or one of the more “adult” animated shows on TV. But to me, none of them come close to those I grew up with. What about you? What was your favorite cartoon show?

  1. Gotta love Foghorn Leghorn. I love cartoons! I have two little boys now, which give me an excuse to keep watching them (not like anyone really needs one).

  2. What a fun quiz, Margery! I didn’t watch many of the cartoons. I liked the family shows like ‘Leave it to Beaver” and “Dennis the Menace” although, I remember watching ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ Great post…thanks for the memories!

  3. I think and hope I got these right…

    1. Fred Flinstone
    2. Bugs Bunny
    3. Tweety
    6. Speedy Gonzalez
    7. Road Runner
    8. Bart Simpson
    10. Elner

  4. Janna, no, no excuse necessary. My father watched reruns of The Flintstones every day until he passed.

  5. Jarm, oh, I watched those, too as well as Andy Griffith. They’re pretty corny, but we still watch. Glad you enjoyed the quiz.

  6. LOL… aw I miss Saturday morning ‘toons! My sister & I used to sit with the TV Guide on Friday nights, pencil & paper in hand, scheduling what we’d watch. I find what I missed now are the commercial break announcements (not the actual commercials though!)… “After these messages, we’ll be riiiight back!”
