(talking pre-1950), Paramount, etc. as well as the Fleischer classics.  These were made for adult appeal and reflected sometimes very specific historical events like the depression and WWII. 


Hi @rb591746

Does anyone remember Wonderama with Sonny Fox on Saturday morning? And of course there was Romper Room after "school". This was the 1st program that taught me how to handle change when the "star" was changed. Trivia question: what were the names of the teachers?
