So I was sitting here the other night and it came to mind how much I remember the USA Network and its old Cartoon Express block of cartoons that used to run in the mornings and then in the afternoons every day. You would get blocks of cartoons like The Shirt Tales, The Raccoons, all kids of Hanna Barbera stuff like Grape Ape, Magilla Gorilla, Scooby-Doo, Droopy Dog all kids of cartoons beyond that. They would be running early in the morning and would go until later in the morning around 10 o clock or so. Then the USA Network would air something like the live-action Incredible Hulk show or something like that for an hour. The evening shows would come on at about 4 or 5 at night and give us a little more animation to bring an end to our day. One of my favorites from the days was Laff-A-lympics
from the Hanna Barbera team. Featuring sports teams from The Yogi Yahooeys, The Scooby Doobies, and the Really Rottons all competing in wild events trying to get some points to count against their rivals.
These shows came around before I became a wrestling fan so I was watching the express before I was watching Monday Night Raw or any of those kinds of shows on the USA Network. Back in the days where the USA Network would air old game shows in the afternoons before the Express would come on. Shows like Tic Tac Dough, Joker’s Wild, Scrabble, and another one of my favorites Bumper Stumpers.
Maybe I’m just dreaming on old USA Network shows before stuff they air nowadays. Stuff that they aired before I even had cable. Back in those days, my grandmother’s house had cable and the USA Network. Maybe my mind was thinking back to a younger day.
Hope to all you all again!
