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!

In Fall 1979, Filmation Associates had a critically busy year with the debut of "FLASH GORDON" on NBC, produced in association with King Features Syndicate, the animated series was one of Filmation's most impressive productions, while the studio aired the live-action "JASON OF STAR COMMAND" as a regular half-hour series after its debut as part of CBS's "TARZAN AND THE SUPER 7" in Fall 1978, while the studio also produced "THE NEW ADVENTURES OF MIGHTY MOUSE AND HECKLE & JECKLE" in association with Viacom, the first Mighty Mouse cartoon series since the 1960s when Terrytoons was brought by CBS.

9/13 - I was 10 in 1979. Figured I’d ace this quiz, but the only one I remember watching regularly was Casper and the Angels.

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!

And of course The Banana Spilts, The Bugaloos, and Lidsville.
Oh yes! I loved those programs...H.R. Puffnstuff too ☺️
It's Pufnstuf Allison, not Puffnstuff!
Oops! Oh well, at least I remembered them 😂
