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.

I sucked way worse than I should've on a 70's cartoon quiz. I thought I'd seen them all, but never heard of a few of these.

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.

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.
