Putting this here because I can't seem to put it in the devID box. I love meeting people from different countries. Just don't count on me being able to speak your language. ^^;

Did you know my Yoshi OC Tyrone has a twin brother? Neither did I.

What Happened to Saturday Mornings?

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 18, 2015, 5:49 PM
Here's my theory on how Saturday Morning really died. Our two prime suspects: Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. For decades since the beginning of television cartoons were considered a rare treat for children, only available on certain days at certain times. The average TV of those days would get only 3 to 5 channels, so timeslots for shows were extremely limited. Perhaps Saturday morning was chosen because that's when children would be most likely to be home.

Flash forward to July 1985. Cable television has already taken off, offering more options for programming than anyone at the time ever dreamed of. There were even channels dedicated to certain types of TV. CNN for news, ESPN for sports, MTV for music. But on this month, another cable network has launched, one that showed cartoons and other children's programming all day, all week. This channel was known as Pinwheel, but we know it today as Nickelodeon.

February 1992. Turner Broadcasting System, who by this time had ownership of MGM/United Artists, as well as Hanna-Barbara, launched Cartoon Network, where they were able to show the cartoon films they owned, which included classic Looney Tunes/Merry Melodies, Popeye, and just about every cartoon ever made by MGM and H-B. Even though Nick beat CN by seven years at bringing a cartoon-oriented channel on the air, CN was the first one to offer cartoons 24 hours a day, while Nickelodeon even today shares a channel with Nick At Nite, which shows old sitcoms.

Thanks to these channels, you were able to watch cartoons anytime you wanted. Saturday morning was no longer a sacred event, because cartoons were no longer a precious commodity. The children stopped caring. Today Cartoon Network is available to over 96 million households with cable TV (82.8% of households with television) in the United States  alone, while Nick is available to about 92 million (81.4% of homes with TV.)

February 2005. The final nail in the coffin gets hammered in. Three former PayPal employees got together in California and created YouTube, mainly as a way to more easily share videos. It evolved into a free service for anyone with Internet access to see any video they can think of. If there was an old cartoon show that you miss, odds are you'll find the complete series on YouTube. What was once missed is missed no longer. Past and present are one. Every face you see, real and fictional, is immortal. Toons from the '90s, toons from the '80s, even the commercials that came between them can be found there. And again, you can see them anytime, not just on Saturdays.

Is there any wonder now why Saturday morning is now just another morning?

Yeah, so they're making a movie based on part of a Futurama episode. Thoughts?

Welcome to my humble profile. I'm just a normal guy who draws for fun, not fame or fortune. As you can see, I draw fan art, mostly Nintendo-related, and even made up a few OCs.
I'm also dabbling in photography. I wouldn't call myself an actual photographer because that would imply that I know what I'm doing. :p I'm just a man with a camera who takes pictures of things he feels would make a good photo.
I think of myself as an Internet gentleman, always striving to be polite, honest, and kind, but if you come in here acting like a little bitch, I will be glad to accommodate you.

I think that about sums it up. Stay devious, my friends. B-)

Same here. I just got over a stomach flu recently too. It feels great being able to eat something without worrying about puking it back up later. I'll never take that for granted again. XD
