Saturday Morning Cartoon

Welcome to the last of current incarnation of Saturday Morning Cartoon. In the new year it will become a once a month feature. But before that happens there still one last cartoon left for 2010.

One of the best cartoons was produced by Filmation in 1979. The show adapted Alex Raymond’s famous comic strip Flash Gordon and was one the most faithful adaptations of it. Original produced as a made for TV movie, NBC decided to turn it into a Saturday Morning Cartoon. They expanded the show and dropped several plot elements to make it work better as a episodic show. The show ran for two seasons and 32 episodes before it was canceled.

In 1982 the original movie was put back together and aired as Flash Gordon: The Greatest Adventure of All
