Remember that one day when you could wake up without an alarm? When you would get your favorite bowl of cereal and sit between the hours of 8 and 12? This is a blog dedicated to the greatest time of our childhood: Saturday mornings. The television programs you watched, the memories attached to them, and maybe introducing you to something you didn't realize existed. Updated every weekend.
Not content to merely
advertise their products, toy manufacturers have often partnered up with
production companies to bring their products to life and present them to a new
audience. Of course, rival companies and parent groups would tend to get the
FCC involved and have injunctions created against such a practice. Either part
of a program would need to be registered as a commercial for the product, or no
commercials for the related products could be shown during the program. But,
whatever the hoops they had to jump through, toy companies inevitably got their
products on the air.
Jem and the Holograms.

box and get your imaginations started: it’s Toy Toons month on Saturday
