In Memory of... the Local Kiddie Cartoon Shows

Anyone who grew up from the 1950s to the early 1990s has memories of at least one: the local station's kiddie cartoon show. Well-worn prints of the Warner cartoons, sometimes mixed with cartoons from other studios like Popeye, Tom & Jerry and Woody Woodpecker and sometimes with a local personality as the host. These shows flourished for many years (at least until the cartoons were withdrawn from syndication and broadcast only on cable TV in the late 1990s). I am sure it was shows like the ones in the promos below that introduced many generations to these great characters. Feel free to post memories of YOUR local station's cartoon show in the comments. [Note these aren't MY local stations, just random promos I found on YouTube.]
