What A Typical Saturday Morning Looked Like For A Kid In 1995

How can you have a bad day if it starts with the BEST cartoons?

Posted on

You're awoken by the piercing ring of your alarm clock.

You brush your teeth but let the shower water run for a bit...thennn you wet your towel to trick your mom into thinking you showered.

Hey, it's Saturday. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Next you slowly walk to the kitchen and fix yourself a bowl of Spider-Man Cereal...

...and take it over to the family room, where you'd park yourself in front of the TV and tune into ABC to watch Sonic The Hedgehog at 8.

Jaleel White though...

Once Sonic was on a commercial break you flip over to Fox to catch a bit of Animaniacs.

But once 8:30 hit, you knew it was when SHIT. GOT. REAL. Now you're ready to kick some ass. "It's Morphin Time" indeed.

When 9 a.m. came by you changed it back to Fox because you thought Reboot would be on, but then you couldn't turn away because it was the oh-so-creepy Cryptkeeper series.


Good luck sleeping later tonight.

On that commercial break you change the channel to WB to watch Gladiators 2000 and dream of the day when you could run in the obstacle course.

Too bad your mom would NEVER let you do it.

Then you had to mentally prepare yourself for Reboot because you were about to be in a completely new dimension.

ABC / Via

It's 10 o'clock. Cowabunga! Time to tune in to your favorite heroes in a halfshell the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

CBS / Via

That theme song is still stuck in your head to this day.

After seeing the turtles scarf down all that pizza you couldn't help but take a snack break...which probably meant Gushers.

Then watching The Tick at 10:30 would leave you in stitches AND suspense.

Fox / Via

But then it was bittersweet watching X-Men afterwards, only because you never got to attend Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.

Fox / Via

Also because you're pretty sure you just heard someone wake up.

Finally, 11:30 comes...and Where On Earth Is Carmen Sandiego? ending your saturday morning on a high note.

Fox / Via

And normally Skeleton Warriors would give you nightmares but time is running thin so you gotta cartoon cram while Carmen Sandiego is on commercial break.

CBS / Via

Finally, noon is here and everyone is up. Back to reality. But even better it's time to go outside!
