Growing up, we looked forward to getting up on Saturday mornings and watching the lineup of original cartoons and even then targeted commercials and public service announcements that went along with the shows. Kids ruled Saturday mornings and the shows were wildly popular. So much so, that they used to have prime time shows previewing upcoming seasons of Saturday programming.
Those days are gone, but thankfully we have the Internet to help us relive them a bit. Here are 10 of the shows you were probably watching on a Saturday morning around this time in 1985.

Apps are designed specifically for selfie-taking; phone accessories are being designed to help make it easier to snap a selfie; a selfie themed TV show is in the works; heck, they even teach classes now on how to take a better selfie.
People from 2 to 92 are going crazy taking pictures of themselves and then posting them everywhere on social media for their poor friends to give an obligatory like to. Seriously, I was at the train station yesterday and a couple behind me, easily in their 70's, snapped a pic with their phone and then told their senior friends that they wanted a selfie of their trip.
So how crazy is this selfie phenomenon? Here are some of the most interesting (and scary) selfie statistics I've stumbled across in my stat-seeking travels. Enjoy!

For Generation Xers and older Millenials like myself, TV on Thursday nights was once appointment-viewing. Starting in 1982 with a lineup of hits like Cheers, Fame, Taxi and Hill Street Blues and ending in 2004 (unofficially; it was officially renamed in 2006, but 2004-2006 was pretty bad except for The Office) with the retirement of Friends, NBC created a lineup of evergreen hits that kept delivering for two decades.
