Panel Moderator Marc B. Lee!

Download Episode 319 Part II!

The first panel I attended, which began at 12:15 p. m. Friday afternoon, was the SATURDAY MORNING CARTOON panel, hosted by MegaCon staff member Marc B. Lee. He took the older members of the audience, like myself, on a trip down memory lane, and introduced the younger generations to the cartoons of yesteryear. He played the opening themes for many Saturday morning cartoons of the 1960's and 1970's from his laptop, which was not hooked up to the speakers in the panel room. Marc used a hand microphone, which he held next to his laptop speakers. The audio from these cartoon themes will not be as clear as the sound from the rest of the panel.

I was unable to find any ownership information on the classic Japanese Anime characters Kimba, Marine Boy or Speed Racer.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I can't make it to MegaCon, but it's good to be able to hear this stuff. I realize that there's not time to cover EVERY cartoon, but I must admit I was a tiny bit disappointed that, in discussing classic TV cartoon shows, there was no mention of "Rocky and Bullwinkle", surely a classic, if ever there was one.
