It’s that time once again for me to share with you all of the fun retro-themed news, stories, and posts I’ve come across in my travels around the web over the last week!

Good Reads

If you enjoy The Weekend Edition here on Retro Ramblings, I highly suggest you check out WestWeekEver.com and read the weekly Pop Culture in Review post. It’s got even more pop culture news and William Bruce West’s writing always brings a smile to my face.

I also wanted to take just a little space to bring to your attention a podcast that just dropped from The Retro Network and Wizards: The Podcast Guide to Comics. This marks the 30th anniversary of Wizard magazine, so the Wizards podcast crew got together lots of the old Wizard staff for a round table discussion that was FANTASTIC for those of us who used to love that magazine or just ’90s comics in general. Be sure to go check it out and give it a listen if you were into that world back in the day!

Video of the Week

For this week’s video, I’m sharing one of those old Saturday morning cartoon previews shows that would usually air in primetime on Friday the night before the new season of cartoons started. I’m doing this to get everyone pumped up a little bit because in this week’s Friday Five post here on Retro Ramblings I’ll be highlighting five of my favorite ’80s cartoons. Look for that at the end of the week, but for now, enjoy this preview show for NBC’s Saturday morning lineup for 1987 starring ALF!

One thought on “The Weekend Edition for 08/22/21

  1. The Saturday Morning Cartoon preview show in prime time was definitely must see TV as you planned your next several months of Saturday morning viewing!
