Only a true Seventies kid can name all these cartoons from 1979

There sure were a lot of ghosts on Saturday morning.

Yes, we recently suggested that 1969 was the best year for Saturday morning cartoons, but 1979 was nothing to sneeze at. Many familiar animated faces remained, from Bugs and Daffy to Popeye and the Jetsons.

In fact, if you were born a decade later, you had some pretty cool bragging rights. You got to enjoy the Globetrotters.

We gathered a bunch of Saturday morning cartoons from 1979 (plus a live-action show and a special). See if you can recognize them! Only a totally Seventies kid will ace it.

Watch The Flintstones on MeTV!

I missed 4, at that time there were 3 networks showing cartoons all morning long. Must have been watching other channels. The good old days!

The early 1970s had much better cartoons: The Archies, Sabrina The Teenage Witch, Josie and the Pussycats, The Groovie Goolies, The Harlem Globetrotters, The Pink Panther, H R Pufnstuf, plus Scooby Doo and Bugs Bunny. There is no comparison!
