Back in the day, what did you watch on TV in the afternoon after coming home from school? A local kids' program? "I Love Lucy" reruns? Cubs' games for you Chicagoland folks? Tell us what you remember.
That had to be it's own show...lolAs a youngster, it was usually one of the local TV shows that featured cartoons and local hosts/guests.
In college it was an early Japanese anime show called "Starblazers." It came on at 4pm, and on Fridays we'd often be suitably fortified in time to watch that afternoon's episode. I wish I had video of us, a group of drunk/stoned engineering students giggling our asses off as watched a reclaimed WWII Japanese battleship flying through space and fighting the evil Gamilons. That's quality entertainment right there.
