Hi. I have never participated in any competitions or any other kind of events on Newgroumds before. I read this thread because "Newgrounds Saturday Morning" piqued my curiosity. Newgrounds technically wants to emulate the old-school feel of the Saturday Morning cartoon viewing experience online but in the form of a contest.
In the beginning of the thread Tom posts:

"What if Newgrounds was your Saturday Morning cartoon-block on TV?"
The challenge this time is for animators to emulate the style of both classic and retro television cartoons from the 1970s to 1999.
But under "JAM REQUIREMENTS" it says:
"Your aesthetic style should be reminiscent of cartoons from the Saturday Morning phenomenon 1969-1999."
Which is it? Can the cartoons reflect times earlier than 1969? Why can't the cartoons reflect the early- to mid-'60s? Saturday Morning cartoons on American TV actually began in the '50s.
