description

It’s the return of the Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat Cereal Cartoon Party! It’s that special time when kids and kids-at-heart get to relive the exciting Saturday Morning ritual of non-stop retro cartoons, and binge on the multi-colored sugary cereals that used to be a part of every “balanced” breakfast! As always, this 3-hour trip into the weird and wonderful world of yesteryear’s animated antics will be accompanied by an all-you-can-Eat buffet of cereal that is open throughout the show (and yes, there will be non-dairy options too!). The cartoon lineup is always a mystery, but in this all-new program you’ll see both faves and obscurities spanning the '60s through the '80s, all punctuated with vintage commercials, PSAs and station IDs! So get ready for a sugar rush and an explosion of nostalgia all wrapped up in one candy-coated package.

Jammies Encouraged! ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT CEREAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PUNCH PASSES NOT ACCEPTED FOR THIS SCREENING
