Saturday Morning Newgrounds
"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.
Myself and a few others who concocted the theme felt the Saturday Morning Era really began with Scooby-Doo in 1969 and lost its luster in the early 2000s. If you have any cartoons you feel are appropriate to the theme, then feel free to post them here, or make your submission with them in mind(I'm sure it'll be great). We're not gonna be a bunch of hardasses about the specifics, just trying to push people in the right direction!

In the end we really just want to see fun new content on the site :)
Well I'm obviously not going to have anything prepared to be submitted an shown by the contest's deadline. I had some ideas for some cartoons I would have wanted to produce. I don't want to go into details about my ideas and disclose what they are here.

I want to produce cartoons that are throwbacks to old Golden Age Hollywood cartoons and old '80s and '90s TV cartoons.

I did want to create an animated promo that is vaudeville-themed for an original cartoon series that is partially inspired from the opening The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show from 1960. (In the opening of the show Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck do a little song-and-dance number on stage to introduce the show with. The show later became The Bugs Bunny and Twenty Show and opened with similar openings with Bugs and Daffy.) I would later change it to be used in the opening of my series.

I am wondering if what I wanted to submit would have been an acceptable submission.
I'm wondering why I didn't get a response to this post.

I don't see why not, so long as the above guidelines are met(e.g. 4:3 aspect ratio).


Thank you.

I'm not too familiar with the shenanigans on this site, but is it true that as of 07/11 there are only 3 entries to the “Saturday-Morning-Newgrounds” so far?

I was just wondering... clicking on that tag in your post only returned three results.

Yes that is true, but not unusual! Most people take all the time they can get to work on their entries and we received 80% of ROUND 1's submissions in just the final 2 days.

Sharing some progress of my cartoon for the Saturday Morning Jam. Here is a random rough storyboard of my cartoon The Dragon and Me.

Unless it's public domain or royalty-free you're going to need to find an alternative.


Luckily the Audio Portal is vast and has a cartoon soundtrack sub-category!

To be honest guys... I don't think i could be able too finish this animation for this entry. Because it was too ambitious for me and that i really don't know how to do a storyboard for this entry.

I only draw few of running scene's. But i really don't know how to continue it. Since i'm not good at making storyboard.

i would say throw in some gags like the old cartoons would. that would help accomplish the feel you want. perhaps have a classic anvil drop or running into a wall. painted to look like a hallway.

Well... Anthony Le-Death already written a story for the entry.

The problem is that i really don't know how to visualize the storyboard myself. I tried it once, and it's not that good to me.

Never too late to cut corners(they sure did back then), and make something shorter and potentially funnier!

I already posted my animation, but since people are sharing WIPs, thought I'd share a couple of boards I did for it.


Drew these with the finest ballpoint pen and Sharpie I found on the floor.
