|Captain Rex (from the Clone Wars cartoon) has joined the Rebels|
I don't recall as a youngster "Saturday morning cartoons" being such a big deal for us in the UK, as we had a succession of great Saturday morning 'magazine' shows like Going Live!, Live & Kicking, TISWAS, Multi-Colour Swap Shop, and Saturday Superstore.
However, it looks as though that's all going to change with the launch this Saturday of Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy cartoon on Disney XD, followed by the continuing excitement of the second season of Star Wars: Rebels (which is just going from strength-to-strength).
These are at the same time as Thunderbirds Are Go!, which has just begun the second half of its first season on CITV, which means I record that and then watch it after the other shows.
I know there's a cornucopia of cartoon fare on a variety of kids' channels these days, virtually 24-hours a day, seven days a week, but the prospect of starting every weekend with fresh adventures from Kanan and his crew of rebels, the Tracy brothers and their giant rocket ships, and Rocket Raccoon and co. guarding the galaxy, will make this a Saturday morning breakfast tradition at HeroPress Towers.
