Saturday Supercade

At the beginning of the video game craze CBS ran video game themed cartoons on Saturdays. Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Pitfall, Q-Bert, Frogger, Kangaroo and Pac-Man. I remember looking forward to this on Saturdays, I think it ran from 1982 - 1984. My brothers and I would sit in front of the television, each with a bowl of Trix and taking in the one hour long commercial from Atari and Coleco. It may have been over commercialization, but they were fun shows!
