What was Your Favorite Part of the Weekend When You Were a Kid?

One of my favorite parts of the weekend was there was no school, of course, but the other part was Saturday cartoons. I couldn't wait to get up watch shows like the Superfriends, The New Adventures of Batman, Spiderman and His Amazing Friends, or The Incredible Hulk.

The theme songs from all of these shows are embedded in my head for all eternity. My other favorite part was the toy commercials that played in between. Especially, the Star Wars toys. Not only was it cool to see the toys in action, but I especially liked the fact that scenes from the movies would be shown at the start of the commercial.

Ever wonder what was up with the Riddler wearing that red outfit rather than the normal green? The Riddler had originally been intended to be a villain on the series, but the rights had been given to The Challenge of the Superfriends for the character. Rather than change the opening credits the suit was changed to red to prevent copyright infringement. Vice versa the Joker and Catwoman were planned to be a part of the Legion of Doom, but did not appear because the rights to those characters were given to the New Adventures of Batman.
