Saturdays with Superhero Cartoons Turn Life into Passion
Growing up in with a single mom and two siblings offered me the opportunity to be glued to the television every Saturday morning and watch cartoons. My mother cherished her Saturday ritual of pampering herself and preparing for the next week to come. She worked hard and deserved all the luxury she could muster in those brief morning rituals.
Warner Bros. cartoons were my favorite because I was mesmerized by Bugs Bunny, The Road Runner, Batman, Daffy the Duck, and Superman. They took me to another world where I could dream and hope for a better place.
Not that my home was bad. I wanted my mother to be happy since she worked so hard raising three kids on her own. I think, most of the time she was happy, but she had so much to do for us. She was my true hero.
The cartoons allowed me to forget about all the troubles and hardship we endured. It allowed me to escape and think about how I could make the world a better place for my family.
The superhero cartoons were the best at inspiring me because they encapsulated the idea of confronting your problems and solving them. To this day, I follow that concept every day.
While watching the show's adventures, the Dark Knight allies with Red Tornado, Green Arrow, Aquaman, Plastic Man, Blue Beetle, Wildcat, Deadman, Bronze Tiger and Atom to take on a bunch of evildoers, no good son-of-a-b*** running as mad, crazy scientists to off the wall, intergalactic crooks, from world power, crazed dictators to skidding teenagers, I learned that one can take responsibility for others by helping them confront their own problems.
Warner Bros. Treasures
Remember, I was satisfied watching cartoons every Saturday. If felt unsatisfied, Bugs Bunny or the Road Runner saved me. With that, I checked out the old cartoons through Warner Bros. archives, and I can still get my hands on another set of Saturday morning cartoons at Amazon Prime.
Some of their cartoons are very dark, but it is the only way to capture the good old days of cartoons. The dark ones are more of escapism and entertainment compared to the silly Bugs Bunny and goofy Road Runner.

Batman in Action
What is really cool, right now, is Amazon Prime offers and endless chance to view the good old cartoons. If you are a Prime member, there is no charge. The cartoons are not that long, so your kids are not wasting their whole Saturday morning, like I did, watching the classics. Be warned. The cartoons are endless.
These cartoons are not cheesy either. They are just as suspenseful as the movies with the dark characters and foreboding soundtrack. The funny cartoons funnier than the movies with slapstick humor that is safe for kids to watch.
