CBS Saturday Morning TV Ad - 1968


I had planned to post this beautifully designed, exciting-as-all-get-out double-page spread for CBS' Saturday Morning Cartoon line-up, circa 1968, that appeared in lots of comics at the time. But then that impish little Bully posted it on his site first, so I asked him if I could use his and save me the effort of having to scan it in.

Bully generously agreed, so here it is, along with my additional close-up of (to me) the main source of interest, The Superman-Aquaman Hour of Adventure! And what better day to post it?

1968 was a little before my time, but I still remember how great the Sat Morn line-ups where back then--and this group of shows looks just as exciting--Jonny Quest, Moby Dick, The Mighty Mightor, The Herculoids, Shazzan!, plus the DC universe of heroes! It almost made the Nixon administration tolerable.

We were just talking of Classic Saturdays over at the UMA!

Here's the ABC you spoke of:


The '60's were GREAT times to be a kid; I remember them well! If you stayed up late enough on Saturday, your local station probably had a Horror Host, screening classic monster movies!

Happy Saturday, all!

There was a children's cartoon series based loosely on Moby Dick?! Wow. Now there's something I've got to research.
