The end of the Vortexx block on CW means an end to traditional Saturday morning cartoons on over-the-air, broadcast networks.
To note this historical paradigm shift in programming, News 4 This Morning is taking a look back at the notable shows from various networks Saturday Morning lineups.
Some of NBC's notable Saturday Morning Shows include:
• 1961 – The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show
• 1973 – Star Trek: The Animated Series
• 1981 – The Smurfs
• 1983 – Alvin and the Chipmunks
• 1985 – The Gummi Bears
• 1991 – Yo Yogi!
NBC was one of the earliest to abandoned animated shows on Saturday morning, doing so in 1992.
