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.

In 1979, Filmation Associates ruled Saturday Mornings starting with CBS's "THE NEW ADVENTURES OF MIGHTY MOUSE AND HECKLE AND JECKLE" that was produced in association with Viacom, while "JASON OF STAR COMMAND" became its own half-hour live action series after its debut as a serial in CBS's "TARZAN AND THE SUPER 7" in Fall 1978, but it was "FLASH GORDON" on NBC which was King Features Syndicate and Filmation Studios "magnum opus" that made an impressive impact, especially with reruns of the former ABC series, "JONNY QUEST", while NBC Primetime was greater fun with "BUCK RODGERS IN THE 25TH CENTURY" in Fall 1979-great TV viewing back in those days!

I was in love with The good looking guys on Space Academy. I loved the Flash Gordon cartoons and anything with The Flintstones.

You got 12 out of 13
See? There's nothing to be afraid it. It's just cartoons. How did you do?

I still hate Crappy Doo.
Missed #13 - I never watched Mighty Mouse.

12/13... I turned 9 in 1979 and had a brother who was 1 and a sister who was 2... I spent as much time as possible outside! BUT... there was nothing better than watching Saturday morning cartoons while eating a big bowl of cereal. Then when either American Bandstand or Soul Train came on, it was all over until the next weekend.
I would sit with a bowl of Froot Loops or Fruity Pebbles and sometimes I don't remember whether it was Honey or Super Sugar Crisp and some toast and watch cartoons from 7 AM until American Bandstand. Then after lunch I would go outside to play.

I missed the last question again, but that's only because I answered it too quickly without reading it properly. "SILLY ME!"

6/13 ... I was 13 in 79 and apparently NOT watching cartoons. Back then, we weren’t glued to the TV anyway. Once we ate our cereal, we were out the door; walking to the gas station to get candy, or to the mall and hang out. Went to the park to play kick ball or baseball or watch my brothers shoot hoops. We were never inside.

Me too, 13 yrs old that is but here winters were pretty cold -20 to -30F at times so we spent a lot of time in front of the tube.

Doesn’t get that cold in Indiana (cold enough) but I just don’t recall us vegging in front of the tv, even in the winter. We played games like Red Light Green Light, we played my Mom’s records and played band. I just don’t recall the tv being on.
