Alftales was better than alf. Would've watched the alf cartoon more if it was against weaker competition.

Kissufur was good,but smurfs was better. Never got into gummi bears for some reason. Didn't watch smurfs much anymore and i quit chipmunks altogether. I didn't realize until later that chipmunks changed animation studios, Ruby Spears was so much better.

When it came to the new animated shows on CBS, it definitely felt like the theme of the season was celebrating the anniversaries of various franchises (the 70th anniversary of the public debut of Raggedy Ann, the 50th anniversary of Superman, the 10th anniversary of Garfield).

Had a small portable set in the kitchen, so I watched Superman every week. Had it been on later in the morning, it might've been renewed.

2 Hip 4 TV (w/Colin Quinn from Remote Control) lost its audience after the Seoul Olympics and never recovered. Ahmet Zappa was gone, replaced with Barry Sobel (227), and, as Zorak said, it was canned, replaced with reruns of New Archies (a bomb a year earlier) and Fat Albert (which I didn't remember NBC acquiring, but since Cosby anchored their Thursday night lineup.....!)
