Deputy Dawg (1961)

Muhammad Rasheed - This Terrytoons creation favorite of mine, "Deputy Dawg" was paired with Mighty Mouse shorts when I grew up in late 1970s Detroit MI. They came on during the weekdays in the 3:30 pm block.

The Mighty Heroes (1966)

Muhammad Rasheed - Created for Terrytoons by the ever-controversial Ralph Bakshi, "The Mighty Heroes" was another one of my personal favorite cartoon shows. Showing up during the 3:30 pm block, these shorts were a delight as part of the "and Friends!" within the Mighty Mouse & Friends show from my late 1970s Detroit MI childhood.

The Abbott and Costello Cartoon Show (1967)

Muhammad Rasheed - This Hanna-Barbera created treat, "The Abbott and Costello Cartoon Show" came on during the weekdays (3:00 pm) back in Detroit MI in the late 1970s/early 1980s. The theme song was genuinely great and hilarious.

Jae Brown - I used to watch it in Toronto, Canada. It was not exclusive to Detroit

Muhammad Rasheed - I can't imagine why it would have been exclusive to Detroit, considering the Hanna-Barbera studios were in California.

Muhammad Rasheed - That would have been weird.


Mighty Mouse (1942)

Muhammad Rasheed - Terrytoons' flagship star, "Mighty Mouse" burst onto my Detroit MI family's tv screen at the 3:30 pm timeslot with the world's most famous operatic catchphrase. Today, the sound very well may include an intrusive mental image of comedian Andy Kaufman cuttin' up on stage, but in my late 1970s/early 1980s childhood, it was only the sound of good ole afterschool, cartoon action!

Rick D. Day - Andy's performance made Mighty Mouse Famous. fight me.

Muhammad Rasheed - Mighty Mouse was already famous, that's why the bit worked. Kaufman was performing—as a straight-faced, deadpan adult—what the kids used to do when the show intro played.

Kidd Video (1984)

Muhammad Rasheed - In the time-honored tradition of properties like C. S. Lewis' Narnia and Mark Evanier's Dungeon's & Dragon's cartoon, "Kidd Video" also featured a group of kids finding themselves within another dimension where they had the rock-n-roll adventures of a lifetime. Back in the mid-1980s of Detroit MI, this cartoon, with it's bangin' theme song, was the very last cartoon of the day and formally ended my favorite part of Saturday morning.

Porky's Bear Facts (1941)

Muhammad Rasheed - ♪ Working can wait! This is paradise, having no work to do! And taking it easy, too! Working can wait! ♫ 

In Porky's Bear Facts (1941), original WB 'Termite Terrace' animator Friz Freleng put his own spin upon the classic "lazy grasshopper/hardworking ant" fairy tale, and cast farmer Porky Pig opposite his lazy bear neighbor. I first saw this short in Detroit MI, back in the summer of 1982. 

I'm confident the classic short never, ever showed anywhere else in the entire universe except on my family's Detroit television.

Jae Brown - Please stop saying that cartoons were exclusive to Detroit

Muhammad Rasheed - lol Not once did I ever say that the cartoons were exclusive to Detroit. I said that's where I was when I saw them as a kid. You're reading into my posts what is not implied.

Jae Brown - No, you're implying but are now denying

Muhammad Rasheed - I'm clarifying what I meant to clear up any confusion. I'm not denying anything.

Jae Brown - You implied then denied. Please stop the implying

Chris Putt - @Jae... Muhammad Rasheed is pointing out that he watched cartoons like these in Detroit. I live in the Detroit metro area but watched Kidd Video growing up in my hometown of Lima, OH in the 80s so it wasn’t exclusive to Detroit. No need for taking this so seriously or for the rightfighting.

Muhammad Rasheed - Jae wrote: "You implied then denied. Please stop the implying"

Meanwhile, I did neither of these.

Why are you trying to pick a fight with me? I thought you were supposed to be a follower of the Christ? Did he likewise go about falsely accusing people of imaginary deeds, too? I suggest you return to your bible and adjust your behavior, please. Thanks.

Jae Brown - No false accusations have been made. Rather, you've been falsely implying things and, called on them, opted to try to deny doing so. Please just quit it. Do it again and I'll be reporting and blocking you

Muhammad Rasheed - Jae wrote: "No false accusations have been made."

Sure, they were. You did it. To me. Please stop. #AsChristLovedTheChurch

Jae wrote: "Rather, you've been falsely implying things"

Noooo. Rather, you have been interpreting my posts through your cockeyed Canadian-French understanding of English. Do better.

Jae wrote: "Please just quit it."

From now on (starting retroactively from the Porky's Bear Facts post), I plan to actually pretend all tv shows I watched as a kid only EVER played on my family's tv alone.

Jae wrote: "Do it again and I'll be reporting and blocking you"

Bring it, Pastor. 😠

Muhammad Rasheed - I think you're only behaving like this because you saw I had a Arabic name and it triggered you. Shame on you.

James Flanagan - You may be right. Never saw this one in the NY/NJ area

Noelle Seymour - Not true Sir. Way out here in California too!

Meghan Munn - @Noelle... Was about to say this, independent channels that played cartoons found anything and everything, now independent channels are mostly gone and it’s untraceable to tell what played unless someone back then recorded it

E Bernhard Warg - Wow. Come up with a creative way to say “I saw this on local TV as a kid, and have never seen it anywhere else,” and people take it WAY too literally.

Muhammad Rasheed - You're very generous.

Someone originally was accusing me of saying the shows I watched were exclusive to Detroit just because I was mentioning where I was when I first saw them. When I explained the situation, then he accused me of lying. At that point, I just went into petty mode. So, yes, this one is *literally* saying it ONLY played on my family's tv and NOWHERE ELSE and I hope that jackass reads it and chokes. lol

E Bernhard Warg - To coin a phrase, I understood the assignment.

Pole Position (1984)

Muhammad Rasheed - In mid-1980 Detroit MI, it was difficult to catch the cartoon "Pole Position" (created from a DIC/MK Company partnership) because it came on Sundays for some reason, and I always kept forgetting about it. It was always a treat, primarily because I was surprised to see a Saturday morning quality toon on a Sunday, so I probably actually enjoyed it more than I normally would have just for that alone. It did have one of my all-time favorite theme songs though.

None of you probably saw it because I'm sure it only played on my family's tv specifically. #TooBad #SorryNotSorry

Paul Dostal - I remember watching it at the time, but I haven’t watched it since then. It’s on my list of shows to watch and relive.

Muhammad Rasheed - You must be from Detroit.

Muhammad Rasheed - From my exact house.

Paul Dostal - The closest I have been to Detroit was Niagara Falls on the Canadian side. Otherwise nope.

Muhammad Rasheed - Coincidently, there's a [sociopathic] Canadian around here who keeps falsely accusing me of implying that all the shows I've named were exclusive to Detroit.

Now I'm in Petty Mode.

Ashanti Ghania - It was on at 11am on CBS in my neck of the woods.

Muhammad Rasheed - Nah.

Ashanti Ghania - Yes, it was. It was initially a video game, then a cartoon. The station was either CBS or NBC because the ABC Weekend Special had the 10:30 am-12:00pm slots on Saturday mornings.

Muhammad Rasheed - Ma'am, if you want to stay in this group, you're going to have to stop with all the lies. Thanks.

Ashanti Ghania - Huh? How are my statements lies? If I still had the 400+ VHS tapes I’ve been recording my cartoons on I would prove it to you.
Nevermind, my memory is enough for me.

Evan Meadow - @Muhammad... Considering I watched it Sat Mornings on CBS AND there are ads promoting it in comics, you are most definitely mistaken.

It was later syndicated on USA Cartoon Express so maybe that’s how you saw it on Sundays.

Muhammad Rasheed - @Evan... The ads were only in local Detroit comic books. Obviously.

Muhammad Rasheed - Plus, my family didn't have cable tv in those days.

Muhammad Rasheed - It was the 'crack era' though. That's clearly why you two remember seeing a show you actually didn't see. 🤔

Thomas E. Reed - As an avid watcher of cartoons, who was a TV engineer for three decades, let me clue you in. Many stations had local kid shows, and tape-delayed what they thought were the "worst cartoons" to Sunday morning. That satisfied the network's contract to run it while the station made more money with their own show. In St. Louis they pulled this trick with "Super President."

Muhammad Rasheed - Thanks for that!

Muhammad Rasheed - The Jetsons also played on Sundays in those days, which seems weird based on your behind-the-scenes reveal (who didn't love The Jetsons???).

Lumber Jack-Rabbit (1953)

Muhammad Rasheed - Lumber Jack-Rabbit (1953) was one of a few Bugs Bunny shorts featuring giants as the antagonist. In this case, it was "Smidgen," Paul Bunyan's dog. Directed by original "Termite Terrace" animation legend Chuck Jones, this is one of the first shorts I think of when Bugs Bunny comes to mind, having seen it several times back in the 1970s of Detroit MI. This is the one where Bugs is singing "Blue-Tail Fly" (Jimmy Crack Corn) throughout the adventure.

Hyde and Hare (1955)

Muhammad Rasheed - "YOU are a mental case."

Hyde and Hare (1955) was another Fritz Freleng masterpiece that pitted Bugs Bunny against the Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde duo personality monster. I adored any and all WB treatments of this gag—taking enthusiastic infusions of the influence on my own later works—with this one being my top favorite of the bunch.

Southern Fried Rabbit (1953)

Muhammad Rasheed - "What's this I hear about you whippin' slaves?"

The Southern Fried Rabbit (1953) WB short directed by Friz Freleng, is one of the classically problematic cartoons from the jim crow era. For some reason, it played all the time in post-Civil Rights Era 1970s Detroit MI, and I still have most of the dialog memorized from it. This is one of the two shorts that first pop in my head when fan-favorite character Bugs Bunny comes up in discussion.

Alley Oop - Poor you.

You should concentrate less on being a victim and watch Rabbit of Seville more.

Muhammad Rasheed - You should thank God you escaped being hanged for treason after the Great War. :)

Alley Oop - okay then 

Muhammad Rasheed - ;) 

Alley Oop -  god, I love the Constitution

Muhammad Rasheed - Clearly not. That's why you cooked up your own when you attacked my country, right?  🇺🇸

Alley Oop - pardon me! I attacked my country! That was the whole point!

Muhammad Rasheed - Uhh... You attacked my country and literally invented your own constitution to go start up your own. The president sent the Union soldiers to put you back in line.

Alley Oop - okay then. What you don't know (and it's probably not your fault) is, that... there were other things going on at the same time. See, my family was poor and were fighting for their way of life as they perceived it. To burden them with the full weight of modern ethics is naive at best. Many of my personal ancestors fought and died for that symbol(that you take time out of your day, every day, to hate despite your lack of understanding it). Those poor southern folk didn't know any different. They were a proud and ignorant people. Much like your own. Who could deny that America was built on the backs of the poor black, (and the poor white) people who have supported her economy, (actually and social) from those days right up up to our generation? I will not be shamed for my pride in my forbearers ...any more than you should be.

Muhammad Rasheed - lol There's literally nothing worse than listening to one of you silly degenerates make up nonsense about my nation's history.

You should have danced from the gibbet for your treachery. Full stop. The only thing I want to hear from you is, "Damn. You're right." There's no way I'm going to read that block of ignorant foolishness.

All you did was attack the country because you are a greedy sociopath. You should thank God you survived into the modern day. How did you survive?

Because God said the evil-doer has respite until Judgment Day.

Alley Oop - okay, then let.me just revert to my upbringing. Come get you some.

Muhammad Rasheed - I'm not homosexual. Finish off with your dad some more.

Eric Matthews - Closing comments. Again, folks can't be civil.

The Admin Team - @Muhammad... We removed your post "Southern Fried Rabbit (1953)" in TV Cartoons That Time Forgot! 

we get your intent, but there's certain types of posts that (unfortunately) are dog whistles to racists - it's like they're compelled to let it out. it was also reported by other members as "menber[sic] conflict". so it's going away

Bugsy and Mugsy (1957)

Muhammad Rasheed - "I don't know how you's done it, BUT I KNOW YOU'S DONE IT!!!"

Bugs Bunny terrorizes the career criminal duo Rocky & Mugsy in Bugsy and Mugsy (1957), a ridiculously funny classic masterpiece from WB director Fritz Freleng. I didn't see this one as a child, but in my adult years well after I'd left Detroit MI. Every gag tickled me just now as I searched for the perfect screenshot.

Rabbit's Kin (1952)

"Eh, how many lumps do ya want?"

Rabbit's Kin (1952) directed by original WB 'Termite Terrance' alum Bob McKimson. This is the classic short that introduced the criminally under-used Pete Puma character, voiced by Stan Freberg doing his John L. C. Silvoney impression ("Crazy Guggenheim" from the Jackie Gleason Show). This one showed pretty often during my Detroit MI childhood, and was an instant favorite. 

The Alligator King (1971)

♪ Said the Alligator King to his 7-sons,  "I'm feelin' mighty down" ♫

The Alligator King (1971), one of several classic shorts animated & directed by Bud Luckey for Sesame Street, taught the young viewing audience how to count to 7 while telling the tale of possibly depression-fueled burnout amongst the alligator ruling class. I always end up singing this ditty when playing the Uno® card game with my daughter because of my long-time habit of dealing the cards out loud, much to her annoyance.
