Saturday morning cartoons haven't been what they used to be for a long time, but now they're even less so. The New York Timesreported earlier this week that the Fox network has ended its Saturday morning cartoons.

Even as the father of two little girls who love cartoons, I had to shrug. A lot has changed since my generation sat in front of the TV all Saturday morning.
