Saturday Morning Cartoon Inspiration on Pinterest
Recently I had a customer who requested a Cops and Robber cartoon style invitation. I thought this would be a fun invitation to add to my collection. I had a great time hunting around the internet to find cartoon inspiration. I've always been fascinated with cartoon animation-- the clean graphic look, with loads of whimsy in the characters expressions. I created a collection of nostalgic cartoons on Pinterest to get inspired.
In my exploration, I found that loads of folks love Saturday Morning Cartoons just as I remember.
Here are a few Saturday Morning Cartoon Memories from:
- I Remember JFK
- Ian the Cool
- Gen X Files
- Jayson's Photography
- Heckler Spray's List of Worst Cartoon Characters
Lastly, If you haven't already gotten the DVD collections of old cartoons, you definitely should. My kids love them! They've been great for long car rides, as well as just a good 15 minute escape. Here are some reviews of the DVD's to check out:

Although it's just not the same now (obviously with cable TV-- cartoons can be found 24/7), maybe make it a little ritual, and just watch them on Saturday morning. See if your kids get the same excitement as you may have!
