Even though we've grown up, we still haven't lost our passion for Saturday morning cartoons. We recently explored what the Saturday morning TV lineup looked like in 1976, and it stirred up a big debate. Most notably, one of our readers commented that the lineup in 1966 was much better. So, being avid lovers of Saturday morning TV, we decided to take a look and see why our reader made this claim.

Looking back at the spring of 1966, there were definitely some classics in here, like Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny and The Jetsons, not to mention some great live-action series and a dash of rock & roll. The slate was filled with familiar 'toon names like Quick Draw McGraw, Underdog, Magilla Gorilla and Secret Squirrel. Horse lovers had multiple options, too.
