I was talking to my oldest daughter about this subject earlier this morning. When I was a kid, Saturday morning cartoons was a special thing. It was the only day you wanted to get up early in the morning (the rest of the week "five more minutes mom"). However, there is nothing special about Saturday morning anymore. My cable company has The Disney Channel, Toon Disney, Nickelodeon, Nickelodeon West, Cartoon Network, Nicktoons, Noggin, Discovery Kids, Sprout that show cartoons 24/7 (except for Nick and Disney that after a time start showing tweener shows like Hannah Montana). Why should the major networks even compete with that? It really is a shame.
Sponge Bob sucks.
