Start the new year with animation classics in MeTV's Cartoon Kick-Off Show
Tune in on January 1 and 2 to see some of the best cartoon shorts of all time!
There's a saying you hear a lot around this time of year: "New year, new you." Well, make that New Year, New Me…TV!
In case you haven't heard, cartoons are finally here on MeTV! You asked, we heard. Now, you can tune in to see classic cartoon shorts six days a week at 7AM | 6C! We're talking Bugs Bunny, Tom & Jerry, Popeye, Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote… the greats.
Weekdays, watch Bill the Cartoon Curator and Toony the Tuna (not to mention their many friends) as they present an hour of their favorites on Toon In With Me. Then, on Saturdays, relive those golden days as you wake up with Saturday Morning Cartoons — for three full hours! That means Popeye and Pals (7AM | 6C), The Tom and Jerry Show (8AM | 7C), and Bugs Bunny and Friends (9AM | 8C).
But we are getting ahead of ourselves! Before all that, tune in for the Cartoon Kick-Off Show on Friday, January 1 at 9PM | 8C, and Saturday, January 2 at 7PM | 6C!
