    Earliest would probably be Popeye and Bugs Bunny/Road Runner on CBS. Superfriends and Smurfs would probably be up there early on as well.

    Grew up the most with Bugs Bunny & Road Runner/Bugs Buny & Tweety. Bugs Bunny would always be there as competing would either get stale or cancelled.

    My fave blocks were One Saturday Morning/ABC Kids (2002-2005), Nick on CBS and FOX Kids. I liked Vortexx to an extent, since it was done by Saban, but it wasn't one of my favorites. Now that I hear that Litton's running a monopoly of Saturday Morning, I say it's time to take back our Saturdays in the name of cartoons!

    Kids WB was my first Saturday morning block. Then it came on weekdays during the day. I think ABC was the next too.

    I guess the 1965 or '66 CBS "Super Saturday" line-up, but I must have watched TV on Saturday morning before that. I don't think I kept it on CBS.

    The earliest I remember watching was CBS Saturday Mornings in the late 80s. After that went downhill, I moved on to Fox Kids in the early 90s, then finally, Kids' WB! in the mid-90s.

    I was a normal Kids WB viewer until I discovered the FoxBox. The block was like a dream come true. I loved to watch the 2003 TMNT series, The Cramp Twins, Funky Cops, and Sonic X.

    ABC Kids was OK, but one of the shows there that I couldn't get interested in was Recess. Even when I was a child, I couldn't understand the hype for it.

    I think the first was Fox Kids. Mostly for Power Rangers. It wasn't long until I started watching Nick and CN and never bothered with broadcast programming until I moved to South Africa.
    I watched a lot Saturday morning blocks there, namely Yo-TV and Tube on SABC 1 and 2, respectively. When I got finally got satellite, I watched K-TV. A lot of these blocks aired cartoons that aired in the States, so it got me into watching blocks like Kids WB and Fox Kids again when I visited the States.

    I think Kids WB was the first Saturday morning program we watched until it completely vanished in 2008.

    CBS in the early-'70s. ("Josie and the P-Cats", "Pebbles and Bamm Bamm", "The Monkees", "The Archies.").

    The first Saturday morning blocks that I remember watching were the ones in 1983-1984. There's no real specific one that I'd watch, as I would watch at least one show from each of the networks at one point in the season (although the late morning/early afternoon definitely belonged to CBS and NBC).
