Saturdays with Superhero Cartoons Turn Life into Passion

Updated on January 11, 2018

I've written, contributed to several books on film, and worked in the film industry. I like to share the insights of the movie business.

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 if only I, too, could be a superhero.

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. I was the superhero, who did not wrong.

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 superhero.

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 if only I, too, could be a superhero.

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. I get a kick out of tackling problems and throwing them in jail as I head back to my office. This day an age, I sometimes have to be a superhero.

Batman Cartoon

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 annoying hoodlums 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 I felt unsatisfied, Bugs Bunny or the Road Runner saved me. With that, I checked out the old cartoons through Warner Bros. archives such as Looney Tunes, 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.

What Do You Think

Would you encourage your kids to watch old Batman cartoons?

Comics vs Saturday Morning Cartoons

If you remember the Saturday morning cartoons with Batman or other cartoons, then you’ll want to share them with your kids. They are super safe for your kids to watch compared to some of the television programs today like MTV or Nickelodeon. You might want to brag to your friends that your kids watch old cartoons. But, your friends should understand that these cartoons came across as an exciting new time in your youth, hooking up with the ever so popular and well-liked DC comics superheroes is not just a pastime because it is a passion and escapism.

Super Hero Cartoon

Like me, you if you can watch episode after episode of each cartoon series. And, I know you will laugh yourself silly, but make sure you share them with your kids. You might even discover some cartoons you haven't seen before like Batman Animated Series Volume One. YouTube is filled with these cartoons, so grab your device, put on your headphones, and start the entertainment.

Batman in Action

Amazon Prime

What is really cool, right now, is Amazon Prime offers endless chances to view the good old cartoons. If you are a Prime member, there is no charge except for your membership with Prime. 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 but so much fun to watch.

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.

      Although the cartoon is fun, you can't be the original live-action show. Adam West will always be the best Batman! ;)
