    Charles Schulz's classic comic strip Peanuts started in 1950. Fifteen years later, A Charlie Brown Christmas debuted. When The Little Christmas Special that Could proved to be an unexpected success, the stage was set for successive television specials. To date, over forty have been made. The Charlie Brown specials focus on one round-headed kid, his goofy but intelligent beagle, and their vast array of friends. Each has distinctive qualities: Lucy, the crabby, self-proclaimed psychiatrist; Linus, the blanket-toting theologian; Schroeder, the Beethoven worshiper whose black piano keys are only painted on; Peppermint Patty, the tomboy whose affections toward "Chuck" are only outweighed by her sports abilities; and so on. The wit, the charm, the pleasantness of these specials make them appropriate not just for children, but for the whole family.moreless

    CBS (ended 1973)
    Archie's Funhouse was a Saturday morning cartoon show that aired on CBS from 1970 to 1971 and from 1972 to 1973. The show was the sequel to the previous season's one-hour Archie Saturday morning series "The Archie Comedy Hour" (which was one of the biggest hits for the 1969-1970 Saturday morning season). "Archie's Funhouse", of course, featured Archie and his pals (Jughead, Reggie, Veronica, Betty, Hot Dog and others) as on-stage hosts of skits, jokes, and music. The program also had live-action kids as the audience for the show, responding to the antics of the Archie gang. Actually, the concept from the show came from 2 segments that were first shown on the previous season's "The Archie Comedy Hour". They were the "Funhouse" and "Side Show" segments. On "Archie's Funhouse", these segments featured puns, jokes, and skits. For these segments, Filmation Studios hired writers from the hit NBC primetime show "Rowan And Martin's Laugh-In" (the show that inspired these segments) to write for these segments. In addition, the show also featured "The Giant Jukebox", playing hit songs from The Archies. There were 3 song segments per show with on-stage performances by The Archies. Hit songs included "Sunshine", "Love Vibrations", and "Comes The Sun". "Archie's Funhouse" started off as a one-hour show on Saturday mornings from 1970 to 1971, then it was trimmed to a half-hour shown on Sunday mornings from 1972 to 1973.moreless

    Where do you go when you've got a hankering for some good old-fashioned insect Mexican food? Why, Carmen's Cocina, of course, where you can find the finest food and drinks on the Tex-Mex border. Set in a bustling insect border town of the same name, Santo Bugito was the brainchild of animation mavens Klasky-Csupo, creators of Rugrats and Stressed Eric among others. With its quirky illustrations and funny double entendres, the series showed the insect inhabitants of Santo Bugito solving daily problems common to all beetles, crickets and roaches. At the center of Santo Bugito were Carmen De La Antchez and her husband Paco, two savvy ants running a thriving Mexican restaurant for bugs. Inside Carmen's Cocina, Carmen and Paco served up yummy platters of caterpillar fries, spider sandwiches and insect burritos. Other memorable characters included the two fly buddies Clem and Burt, lawyer Emma Squito, caterpillar urban artist Eaton Woode, a brilliant Praying Mantis named Professor, flamenco spider Lolita Larachnid, the Wolf Spider family, Donald the Dragonfly, Ralph the Ladybug, the Roachmuller family and Lencho the Flea. Together, the bugs helped each out of many insect-related predicaments and made us laugh along the way. Although it only lasted one season on CBS' Saturday morning schedule, Santo Bugito gave us 64 million reasons (most of them six-legged) to watch where we were stepping.moreless

    Garfield & Friends

    CBS (ended 1994)
    Based on the highly popular comic strip by Jim Davis, Garfield and Friends was considered the best long-running cartoon on CBS. This Saturday morning series featured the adventures of that lovable, hungry fat cat Garfield, his yellow dog friend Odie, and their cartoonist bachelor master Jon Arbuckle. Garfield cartoons shared the spot with a new cartoon series created for this series called U.S. Acres (also based on a comic strip by Jim Davis). U.S. Acres was a cartoon about a group of barnyard animals who run a farm. The leader was Orson Pig, the bookish and perceptive pig. His friends had many different qualities: Wade Duck was the scaredy-cat duck who runs away from everything, no kidding; Booker was a crafty little chick whose main goal was to chase a worm, and his brother Sheldon was nothing more than an egg with two legs sticking out; Roy Rooster was the practical joking rooster who puts everyone in trouble with his jokes; and two sheep, Bo and Lanolin, were always bickering with each other about nearly everything. Bo being a nice guy and Lanolin a cruel girl. Each episode, they had to protect the farm from Orson's big bad brothers and a crafty weasel. Before this series, Garfield cartoons were shown as yearly specials on CBS, and the specials were so great that CBS decided to turn Garfield into a cartoon series. In the first season, each 30-minute episode was packed with three 8-minute shorts, two Garfield shorts and one U.S. Acres short. In the second season, Garfield and Friends expanded to an hour, consisting of four Garfield cartoons and two U.S. Acres cartoons. It remained at this format until the show ended in 1994. 'Garfield:The Movie' was released on June 11,2004 & so far has made over $75 million at the box office. Thanks to the success of the movie, 20th Century Fox is now working on a CGI/live action movie version of 'Alvin & The Chipmunks' & coming to theathers on December 25th is 'Fat Albert', which is of course a live action version of the classic 1974-1984 cartoon 'Fat Albert & The Cosby Kids'.

    CBS (ended 1968)
    Originally, Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner were the stars of Warner Bros. theatrical cartoons. Like their contemporaries, they were packaged into Saturday morning's The Bugs Bunny Show, but by 1966, the two had become popular enough to earn their own spin-off. Created by legendary animator Chuck Jones, the series had a simple premise: The coyote, who was very hungry, tried to catch the Road Runner, who was very fast. Wile E. would try anything to catch his prey, utilizing a wide variety of products from the Acme Company (rocket skates, giant magnets, foot springs, etc.) Regardless of the scheme, it would always backfire, and Wile E. would end up trapping, flattening, or blowing himself up. The coyote was persistent, though. No matter how many failures he met with, no matter how many times he fell off a cliff, no matter how many signs he held up with the word “Ouch!” written on them, he refused to give up. Signs were the only way Wile E. communicated in his shorts with the Road Runner, and the bird only spoke the two-word catchphrase, “Beep Beep!” The cartoons took place in the desert, giving the bird a wide variety of boulders and cacti with which to crush or impale the coyote. The Road Runner cartoons are remembered fondly because of the simplicity of the tales. The plot stayed the same, while the action was different every time. Each episode even started the same way, with a shot of the Road Runner and his fake Latin name in parentheses underneath (birdicus speeedicus), then the same bit with the Coyote (famishus unbelievacus). The names would change each episode. While this particular Warner Bros. cartoon was, hands down, the most violent, it was also one of the most popular. The lack of dialogue made it simple enough for even the smallest child to understand exactly what the Coyote was planning and to enjoy the inevitable outcome. The Road Runner Show Premiered in 1966 on CBS and was replaced in 1968 by the Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour. The format of this 30 minute show was as follows: Beginning - Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote short Middle - Tweety & Sylvester short End - one of any classic Looney Tunes shorts, such as Bugs Bunny, Speedy Gonzales, Foghorn Leghorn, Pepe Le Pew, Yosemite Sam, Sylvester, or Daffy Duck.moreless

    CBS (ended 1980)
    Tom and Jerry was originally the very first, and earliest of the Hanna-Barbera Cartoons. It went through many phases and took place from anywhere from inside a house, to anywhere in outer space. The show was of course, about a cat and a mouse, and several other characters. The two never really talked, even though they do sing, yell, gasp, laugh, count, or say "Aha!!"; and that several other characters spoke more often. They would later end up in several TV series, and also in a few movies, however many would say that they didn't like the way the movies turned out. All of the episodes were distributed by MGM. Here's more info about the show in general: Pilot Episodes: The Pilot Episode was called "Puss Gets The Boot" and was also the first one with Mammy in it. Tom looked very different and was called Jasper. It was produced by Harman-Ising Productions. Fred Quimby: Fred Quimby was the Producer of Tom & Jerry for many years. He is also the Producer of Tex Avery's Cartoons. Tom's fur would eventually become blue. CinemaScope: These cartoons had more people in them. There were narrators, and many conversations between the adults. Lewis Marshall became an Animation Director, and Hanna-Barbera were the Producers. Rembrandt: Only seeing the older Tom & Jerry cartoons, and not having enough information on the show, Ted Pierce, Gene Deich, and William L. Snyder and the rest of the crew had trouble in producing their episodes of Tom & Jerry. Sib Tower 12 Incorporated: One of the last producers of Tom & Jerry, this version has the famous opening with the yellow background and the red letters (except for the 5 letters O and J) where Tom hisses and Jerry waves. The producer was Chuck Jones, and the cartoons look ahead of their time. There were several new characters, including a yellow bulldog, and Tom's Girlfriend, The Shark, Jerry's Dog, and several robots where Tom was a security operator at a cheese mine. Other people that worked on the show were Les Goldman, Maurice Noble, Michael Maltese, Tom Ray, Earl Jonas, Lewis Marshall, Eugene Poddany, Bill Lava, Dean Elliott, Carl Brandt, Mel Blanc, June Foray, Abe Levitow, Ben Washam, Don Foster, and Walter Bien. They would later do several Dr. Seuss cartoons along with Depatie-Freeling Entertainment, the Cricket seties, Duck Dodgers, and many other Award Winning shows. Filmation: Many years later, Filmation attempted to produce Tom & Jerry. It was a TV show called The Tom & Jerry Comedy Show. It seemed to look like all the Tom & Jerry cartoons in the 1950s and 1960s. They also aired and produced some other MGM cartoons, like the ones that are directed by Tex Avery. The episodes of The Tom & Jerry Comedy Show are mentioned here. TV: The New Tom and Jerry Show and The Tom and Jerry Kids Show: HB's TV versions. Neither lasted long, but several people still remember Them. They weren't that violent either. They were about the characters trying to solve everyday problems. Tom & Jerry Kids had other charachers as kids that were also produced by Fred Quimby, Including Tex Avery's Cartoon Characters. Now: Tom & Jerry was recently produced by AOL Time Warner and Turner Home Entertainment. They aren't the best cartoons. Tom and Jerry is currently airing on Cartoon Network! Check your local listings! Every episode of Tom & Jerry can be seen on Cartoon Network and Boomerang for one hour, and also The Sib Tower 12 Inc Cartoons can be seen with The Chuck Jones Show.moreless

    CBS (ended 1966)
    Tennessee Tuxedo & His Tales was created by Total Television and animated in Mexico by the Gamma studios. It was created in response to FCC chairman Newton R. Minow's charge that television was a "vast wasteland," so inserted into the cartoon frivolity was a bit of education. Tennessee, a penguin, and his walrus pal Chumley, always sought ways to better themselves by trying to do things man could do, but it would usually if not always backfire, much to the chagrin of Megapolis Zoo keeper Stanley Livingstone. Faced with a dilemma, Tennesse and Chumley would break out of the zoo and visit Phineas J. Whoopee, an inventor who with his three-dimensional blackboard would draw out and explain a variety of different things, such as the invention of the light bulb and the telephone, how cars operate, how TV cameras work, or how suits of armor were first used. Don Adams, TV's Maxwell Smart (and later Inspector Gadget) gave voice to Tennessee. Larry Storch (F Troop) was Mr. Whoopee, and Bradley Bolke as Chumley. Also included in the show were repeats from Tooter Turtle and The King & Odie. After its run on CBS, Tennessee Tuxedo & His Tales moved to ABC where it aired Sunday afternoons starting in 1966. In 1967, it was paired with The Beagles, which aired on CBS the year before.moreless
