Saturday 1977

Updated on February 4, 2012

Honeycomb's big, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Honeycomb cereal. Came with a free license plate. I still have some of those somewhere!

Is it duck season or rabbit season?

Saturday 1977


Sitting on the couch

Early Saturday morning rise

Bowlful of Honeycomb in my hands

Little brother at my side.


Watching Scooby-Doo and George Jetson

I loved Land of the Lost, too

Sleestak always scared me

Run Holly, don’t let them get you!


Hear the whir of the vacuum

MOM, we’re trying to watch TV

Chores must be done today

Now pick up those feet!


Napping a little during Looney Tunes

I really never did know

Was it rabbit or duck season

I’ll find out later, mom says it’s time to go.


Pile up in the car, mom and me

Little brother quit hanging on that door

You’ll get nothing if you’re not good

When we get to the grocery store!


Shopping cart with me on the front

Let’s see, I want Pop-Tarts, Cheetos, and a magazine

Sneak ‘em in when mom’s not looking

Open it all up on the backseat.


Remember those happy carefree mornings

When times get tough in the fray

Speed Buggy would agree with me

That every day should be Saturday!

I hanker for a hunk o' cheese!

      Capedium, I make sure I have fun almost every day! Oh, and we usually always went outside to play on Saturday afternoons!

      Thanks for the comment!

      LABrashear, it's so refreshing to see an adult admit to still loving cartoons! There's so many things people think you can't do after you grow up!

      Thanks so much for the vote!

      Gypsy, at least you were doing something important with your time, like learning! I was a couch-potato long before it was even cool! Thanks for commenting!

      Billy, I hope the day you read something by me that you don't like, you respond with "Eh". Just kidding! Let me know because that's how we learn!

      Thanks for the comment!

      Michael, I'm never growing up! In 20 years I'll still be wearing my Converse and listening to the Ramones!

      Voted up and thanks for the memories. Yeah Saturday mornings were great except for me. Even living in N.Y.C. I went to learn Latvian and about Latvia etc. Saturday mornings. When I got home the cartoons were over. But I got my dose of those great Saturday cartoons when I got in my 20s and went to university. Saturday morning I was glued to the TV to catch up on what I'd missed.

      As usual I enjoyed your hub; I'm patiently waiting for the day when you write one I don't like. :)

      The best memories are the ones with family when everything was good.

      Makes me want to be a kid again, although sometimes it's like I never grew up. Thanks for the ride ,Lady.

      Mark, I never watched those boy cartoons! That was the good thing about me being older than my brother...control over the channels!

      Thanks for reading!
