Saturday morning TV: US network television adverts from the 1970s and 80s

Saturday mornings for many pre-internet kids growing up in the 70s, 80s and 90s often meant a whole morning dedicated to watching TV shows. Cartoons like Scooby-Doo, the Flintstones, the Smurfs, Spider-Man, Bugs Bunny and Wacky Races were all regular fixtures and dominated the schedules of US network giants such as ABC, NBC and CBS.
