Saturday Supercade

The holidays are offically over, and January has no particular theme to spend a whole month on, so for the next few weeks the blog will be completely freeform. I'll be posting whatever I feel is worth posting--you know, like a normal blog.

Here is a montage of show openings from an early to mid 1980s cartoon called Saturday Supercade. Airing on Saturday mornings on CBS, the show was an hourlong program featuring cartoons based on popular video games at the time. Frogger, Pitfall, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr, and Qbert were the video games of choice for this show. Like the Pac-Man cartoon I've featured several times, this was yet another way for the networks to cash in on the blooming video game craze.

This show is by no means a classic, and certainly isn't good, but it is a minor footnote to Generation X pop culture. See for yourself!
