Inside the Theme: Saturday Morning Cartoons

Welcome to Inside the Theme: Saturday Morning Cartoons edition! Each month we ask the IGGPPC staff to answer a few questions about the theme of this month’s pen pal round. This month the IGGPPC is celebrating the Saturday morning ritual. Older Iggles may be all about Geek Girl Brunch and mimosas these days but once upon time we celebrated the weekend with jammies, spoonfuls of colorful breakfast cereal, and a marathon of cartoons and kids shows. Let’s get to it right after this commercial break!
