    LOVE!! Here I thought I was alone in my cartoon addiction...Saturday morning cartoonaholic at 40!. We live off of Cartoon network and Boomerang in our house and I have a 5yr old son with which to share the joy. We bond over Scooby Doo and Phineas and Ferb.

    I know I'm dating myself, and I'm still young, but I swear my parents made us watch those. Maybe not made us, but that's much of what was available to see then. Great videos. Thanks for sharing!

    I really enjoyed scary cartoons when I was little (especially the old ones). Alf, on the other hand, had me absolutely terrified.
