Aging Gracefully

I was in a fast food restaurant tonight and there were a bunch of teenage boys sitting near me, and it gave me pause to realize that though they were talking about parties and drinking and girls, they were chronologically closer to my children’s age than mine.

I just ran across a wonderful archive of old Saturday Morning cartoon theme videos, (via MetaFilter or something) and the vast majority of them are after my time.

A few of them I remembered watching and snagged, including Mighty Orbots, DangerMouse, Dungeons and Dragons, Battle of the Planets, Star Blazers, Thundarr the Barbarian, and Count Duckula. They also had Shazam, which either was before my time or I just missed it. Transformers was just barely after my time but I have memorized the theme song so it counts.
