When you get to be my age, you stumble downstairs on a Saturday morning ad there's that little bit of child left that wants to watch cartoon. Then you see the toy ads passing themselves off as cartoons with their crappy artwork and non existent backgrounds and you just die a little inside.

I am, of course, referring to;
SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS 1960s VOLUME ONE
SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS 1970s VOLUME ONE.
These two, two disc sets take all that is cool and groovy and puts them in one set to show those youngsters of yours what good cartoons are all about.
And they are all here from Top Cat to The Herculoids. Odd ball classics like Goober And The Ghost Chasers and Marine Boy.
But, that's not all. Add in some great behind the scenes little featurettes and we get information about the cartoons we cherished as kids.
This is a great set and now I can not wait for volume two of each set respectively.
