Growing up in the late eighties/early nineties, there was one thing I loved: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Okay, so I loved other things, too, but Saturday Mornings were special. I was just a sucker for the shows that broadcasters just knew would keep our little imaginations running. It wasn’t just my childhood that was shaped by this type of programming block, however – Wikipedia has a page dedicated to the history and strategy behind the Saturday Morning Cartoon! What’s more, as explained by John Cheese of Cracked.com, this kind of TV-By-Theme, like Cartoon Network’s “Toonami” and Nickelodeon’s “Nicktoons,” are being phased out as on-demand programming, DVR’s, and hundred-channel-TV-Services allow consumers to more exactingly choose their shows.
