Fairly certain that if Popehat (who is usually more sensible) reconsidered this tweet, he'd realize "late 70's" was a typo, and what he meant was "the '60's." 'Cause Saturday morning cartoons sucked by the late '70's, and the cause of the failure was Hannah-Barbera, who should have stopped with Tom & Jerry (never that good anyway), and never gone on to the perdition of "The Flintstones" and The Dog Who Shall Not Be Named.
[For Gen Z, a splainer: Clue Club was a very short-lived Scooby Doo knockoff from Hanna-Barbera, circa late 70s. This was from the era when kids would watch cartoons all Saturday morning, when good ones aired. “Aired” meant....never mind.]— RiddanceHat (@Popehat) January 22, 2021

"Of Course You Know, This Means War!"
The only real cartoons were directed by (in order of importance): Bob Clampett, Chuck Jones, and Friz Freleng. All others are unmutual!
