We were expected to stay in the playroom.
Playroom was outdoors for us.
and lunch was at whichever neighbors house you happened to be at.
I loved Schoolhouse Rock. They played the episodes until the mid 90s. I remember watching them Saturday Morning on ABC. Funny thing was, the songs were so catchy I could sing them all. Only problem, I'm Canadian, so most of the songs didn't apply to me XD
Before I had a cell phone, I had to honk my horn to tell my friend that I'm here to pick him up. Then one night, some stranger got into my car because he was also expecting someone to pick him up. I got a cell phone shortly after that and just called my friend when I arrive to pick him up.
You remember when Alf was cool.
Not being Canadian, I can only hope that "Conjunction Junction, What's Your Function?" DOES, in fact, apply up there
Is that why they say that old folks have lost their marbles?
Marbles... now there is a game. Mumbley-Peg? Top wars?
I remember the Tex Avery Show and Toon Heads still being broadcast on Cartoon Network alongside their original programming. Actually, I'm sure that was before [adult swim], since those shows usually aired around [adult swim]'s current time slot.
I miss the classic cartoons. The best you get now is Tom & Jerry, and its usually mid-day on the weekdays. Granted, now you have the internet and Youtube.
Here you go:

Now it can be Saturday morning any time you want
We did play outside all day - the playroom was for night and rainy days. Parents didn't particularly want a house full of mud. Sister-in-law had a triangle, my mother had a police whistle. You heard either, you went home.
We had Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show. John Belushi on Saturday night Live, and the Pink Panther didn't talk
we had the street light when it came on you came in. Rainy days I was either in my room or if allowed watching tv.
... and he smoked.
One the Wife reminded me of
man, that stuff made the BEST mac&cheese!
and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
It was some of the best cheese you would have...I used to love it. The canned beef was good also whenever you could get it. Mix it with BBQ sauce and you had a good meal. I hated the spam.
Of course this was before food stamps came out.
Speaking of cartoons... anyone remember Heckle and Jeckle? Rocky and Bullwinkle?
Peabody and Sherman? Boris and Natasha? Quickdraw McGraw and Baba Looey?
I miss my Rocky and Bullwinkle.....sigh
I'm with you. Quality entertainment.
Science fiction was acceptable on network tv. And the syfi channel played science fiction, not wrestling
A hamburger at the drive-in (drive-throughs didn't exist) was 10-15¢. And the "waitress" (as they were called) skated to your car and placed the food on a tray that she hung from your window. Milkshake or malt was 20¢. No toys came with that. McDonalds didn't exist. :-D
Animated Peabody & Sherman coming from Dreamworks in 2013 or 2014. Maybe it will include some R&B.
Breakfast cereal was full of real sugar and yummy!
We used to eat strawberry Cornflakes, they had dehydrated strawberries that would puff up when you added milk. MMMM.
