Welcome to the online home of 89.1 WIDR's Saturday Morning Cartoon Show, hosted by DJ Beta and DJ Muppet every Saturday from 9-11am.

Our podcasts contain the same cartoon episodes, theme music, rocked out covers, and in-show musical acts you've come to love on the air. The Saturday Morning Cartoon Show is definitely a part of this balanced breakfast.

Podcast for 04/19/08 - Batman Beyond

When I came back to the studio to upload the show the sun was shining and it was raining. I absolutely love days like that. :) It's a little bit like Batman Beyond, today's cartoon, in that it's something that seems quite odd on paper, but is rather lovely when it actually happens. Okay, so maybe lovely isn't the best word to describe anything Batmanish, but this is a great series and today's episodes are certainly indicative of the quality this show consistently brought to the airwaves.

Beta and I were very pleased to welcome John into the studio for today's show. As you'll hear, he was the generous soul who adopted The Saturday Morning Cartoon Show during WIDR Week. Not only did he help keep us on the air with his donation of $89.10, but he also got to pick a cartoon for the day and sit in with us on the air. He's a quiet guy, but he likes and knows his Batman. Let this be a lesson to all of you: WIDR Week will return, we love company, and we come cheap. ;) If you missed out on donating during WIDR Week and would still like to, you can donate at any time throughout the year on our website.

If you're here and have a few seconds to spare, please respond to the poll we have posted to your left. As much as we love what we do and (for the most part) know what we're doing, we'd really like to know more about what you guys and gals would like to hear. We'll play cartoons from every decade, but if you have one or two you like better than others we'd be happy to program based on your feedback. The polls change every week or two, so please come back from time to time and let us know what's on your mind. Of course, the comments are open for any musings or requests you may find yourself possessing.

I plan on posting some bonus material this week, so...when? Well I'm not going to tell you that! That would spoil the surprise. Just keep checking back or, even better, subscribe to our RSS feed using one of the convenient links to your left. As always, please pass links on to your cohorts and, if you're a member, give us a little click for Reddit or StumbleUpon. 

Right-O. I have to get to work. Have a great week, everyone, and enjoy the show!
