I've been watching old network promos because I hate myself and want to indulge myself in a nostalgia-induced depression, but now I want to discuss the cartoons that aired around them.

What killed off Saturday morning cartoons? Was it the larger availability of viewable timeslots on cable networks such as Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network to watch cartoons vs the limited timeslots broadcast networks offered? Were the broadcast networks just not getting enough quality shows as old ones ended? Or did they just get canned because shows aimed at older audiences were more profitable on broadcast even without a change in viewership? Which block did you watch the most? What was the one cartoon you couldn't miss when it was on?

I remember watching Kids' WB until all the shows I remember anyone talking about were all moved to Cartoon Network around 2006 or so. I don't even remember what was left on Kids' WB after that. In hindsight, it's not too surprising that 4kids took over the block in 2008.

 No.1045988

Likely a combination of all 3, along with a general decline of cartoons in general, and as I didn't have a favorite block, that I can remember anyways, i'll just say that I watched Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon the most.

I watched Fox Kids more, but Kids WB had some great bumpers. Watching the video, the CGI seems to hold up better than I expected. Is it because they mostly used it for the buildings, water tower, and their logo (which was intentionally rubbery) rather than people or animals?


 No.1046385

>>1045987

Does modern WB/CW even mention the water tower anymore? Or is it just a relic of the past like Nickelodeon slime?

>>1046381

Probably. Toy Story used to rarely show humans in their movies because of the limits of CGI back then.

Instead of excitingly waking up to watch cartoons, kids would be excitedly waking up to get to hang out with their other parent. The article isn't claiming that it's "the reason" but it's one a a whole lot of things that helped contribute to it.

If he's going for muh nostalgia, why not connect the tablet to the TV? Or is that too much to ask of a Redditor?


 No.1047348

I didn't watch cartoons much on Saturday due to sports, Cub Scouts, etc. Because I didn't have cable it was hit or miss seeing an episode during the week if I missed its premiere. Getting cable in middle school was a blessing in that regard.

I do wonder though, what do kids watch now if they don't have cable? Are there any networks left on broadcast? Or do they just watch Netflix/Youtube?

Kids have many outlets for watching cartoons these days. watchcartoon dot com is one such outlet, there are many other such sites where you can watch literally hundreds of cartoon series. It's quite impressive, actually, and I've taken to doing that, myself. (I never did lose my love of cartoons and animation.)

He wants nostalgia brownie points without any actual effort. He probably thinks he's as cool as this 80s kid by doing that. (Is there an equivalent of this for cool 90s kid?)
