Animate This! Cartoonist Lou Scheimer owned Saturday mornings! VIDEO INTERVIEW - Mr. Media Interview

Today's Guest: Andy Mangels, author of the biography Lou Scheimer: Creating the Filmation Generation. Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of superheroes, space travelers, Cosby kids and teen-age rock stars… in the NEW new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!   I’m nine years old and the most exciting day of the week is Saturday, because that’s when cartoons are on! Who could forget the excitement of getting out of bed early and planting him or herself in front of the TV to watch "The Archies," "Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids," "Star Trek," "Groovie Ghoulies" and all the rest? It was only today as – a-hem – an adult that I discovered so many of my favorite Saturday morning epics from the late 1960s and early ‘70s were a product of Filmation Studios and its head, Lou Scheimer. ANDY MANGELS audio excerpt: "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids won tons of awards and changed thousands of kids' lives. That was a favorite show of Lou's."  You can LISTEN to this intervi
