According to NPR, the CW has aired its last batch of Vortexx programming, leaving American children for the first time in decades without any animated broadcast television to kick off their weekends.
One of the great things about Saturday morning cartoons was that they aired on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, FOX and the CW (formerly WB) networks which didn’t require cable and made them accessible to kids everywhere.
“Tom and Jerry.” “Scooby-Doo.” “The Smurfs.” “Charlie Brown.” “G.I.Joe.” “Ghostbusters.” “DuckTales.” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” Whether you watched these shows fresh or in syndication, they’re synonymous with bed head, pajamas and endless bowls of cereal.” said MTV
The Washington Post reports, NBC was the first network to make the switch from cartoons to teen comedies (“Saved by the Bell,” anyone?) on Saturday morning. It didn’t take long for ABC and CBS to follow.
