Know what I miss? I miss being excited for a new season. Every September a new season of Saturday morning cartoons would start, and I would check the paper to see what shows were airing at what time, on what channel. And then I, in all of my 9-year old kid organizational skills, would divvy up the shows into which ones were must watches and which ones I just thought I should just check out. There would sometimes even be preview specials on the Friday a week or so before the new season started that would actually show clips of upcoming cartoons. And several stations would do their own.
Those were some great times for me.
