In the Guilty Pleasures thread, there were some fun posts about cartoons/kids programming that we like as adults, so I'm asking now, what were your favorite cartoons/kids programming when you were a child?

My list is really going to show how old I am, but here it is:

Pink Panther
Underdog
HR Pufnstuf
Bugs Bunny/Road Runner/Leg Horn Fog Horn (all WB)


What were your favorite toys? Mine:

Chatty Cathy
Spirograph
Barbie/Francie/Midge
Tinker Toys
Lucky Locket Kiddles
Candy Land Game

I guess I'm just feeling a bit nostalgic today... :) :)

Oh, I loved Colorforms!

I forgot to add Lost in Space and the CBS Children's Film Festival to my list. The Film Festival was really a special program (it showed children's movies from around the world.) Kukla, Fran & Ollie hosted the show - I adored it! :watch:
