Saturday Morning Cartoons at The Holiday Inn Express & Suites
The hardest choice on a Saturday morning used to be what kind of cereal to eat. Remember that magical time between 7 am and noon when you would sit on the carpet in your living room in front of the tv, watching everything from Tom & Jerry to the Jetsons? Well, we want to include that magic in your vacation!
Every day is a Saturday at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites! You can already hear the theme to Scooby Doo and Yogi Bear, can’t you? Start your morning with a fresh cup of coffee and a great view from your balcony. Head down to our Express Start Breakfast buffet and get some of your fresh, hot breakfast favorites. Then, head over to our beachfront Sandpiper Meeting Room to enjoy some Saturday Morning classics! The kids are sure to enjoy these great, classic cartoons!
We hope to introduce your kids to some cartoons they may have never seen before, but you’ll surely remember! You may even feel like a kid again yourself! Featuring classics such as Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo Where Are You, Tom and Jerry, and more! You see, this may even be a history lesson for some! As Saturday Morning Cartoons were watched by millions, they helped shape a generation.
Saturday morning cartoons are an old concept beginning in the early 1950s. The early years of Saturday Morning cartoons consisted of The Jetsons, Top Cat, and Jonny Quest. The 1960s were the age of the superhero cartoon series, introducing Superman, Aquaman, and Spiderman to the Saturday morning timeslot.
The 1970s brought a boom of aminated versions of prime-time live actions shows like The Brady Kids, Star Trek: The Animated Series, and The New Adventures of Gilligan. By the 1980s comic strips were now cartoons such as hits like Garfield and Friends and The Smurfs.
At the end of the 1990’s the Saturday Morning Cartoon timeslot aimed towards younger children and education programming. And sadly today, the Saturday Morning Cartoons we once knew are a thing of the past. But not on vacation!
