I deliberately looked for the English version expecting to find feedback back there in the US. Those were around all over Europe from Germany, England, France, to Spain n Portugal back in the early 80's.
Deeply engraved in my most fond childhood memories.
We use to run back from school to the tv to get the shows on time. A piece of bread n butter with hot chocolate...now I want cry some more...
We had DoDo the Kid from outer space, Marine Boy, Mighty Mouse, Heckle and Jeckle, Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Roadrunner, Gumby, Davey and Goliath (which I hated) and others.

I remember similar radio programs the year we lived in New York - some of us hunkered around the radio at other people's apartments. That was 1950. We got a small tv that year too (part of my father's job), but I mostly remember watching the news (I've long been this way) and two shows, Hopalong Cassidy, and Howdy Doody. Not the same as cartoons. Maybe I'm forgetting, though. I was eight or nine then. TVs were, I surmise, very new then.

The earliest cartoons I remember on tv was Farmer Brown. It took a while before Disney and Warner Bros showed up.
I thought the Farmer Brown toons were lame. But there wasn't a lot to choose from.

A million years ago when we all, younger or older now, were all the same...
Loving to read your most cherished childhood references. Keep them coming people.

The first kid shows I saw were while visiting a relative in another city. The puppet shows, Fearless Fosdick, Beanie and Cecil. Crusader Rabbit. Big Ed or somebody on the Buster Brown show, with Froggy Gremlin and other features. Howdy Doody. There were no broadcasts yet in Fresno.
When we got a TV, the cartoons I watched were reruns of Ub Iwerks cinematic cartoons: Flip the Frog, Willie Whopper. They aired at noon time and we only watched them during summer vacation. The shows we watched on coming home from school were live action: Wild Bill
Hickock, Annie Oakly and Range Rider.
Then came Huckleberry Hound, with a cast of other characters on the same block of shows: Quickdraw McGraw, Yacky Doodle, two mice and a cat, Yogi Bear.
