Saturday Morning Cartoons

We here at Comicdom Wrecks! spent many a Saturday morning in our youths curled up in front of our TVs watching hours upon hours of quality animated television.  Growing up through the 1980’s and early 90’s (except for Anthony, who grew up in the Roaring 20’s), we had a lot of amazing programming, be it actual quality (like Batman: The Animated Series) or as seen through rose-colored nostalgia goggles (like Transformers G1).

To celebrate the animated side of comic fandom, we are doing a weekly feature called Saturday Morning Cartoons in which one of the writers picks an episode of a cartoon and covers it however they see fit.  J.R., Jacob, Anthony, and Casey will be rotating through the four Saturdays of the month, and should there be a fifth Saturday in the month, all four will come together and do something special for the event.
