actually, no  it's not. I was in kindergarten or first grade when that happened and I watched it on a black and white tv. Even wrote the network a letter in crayon because they pre-empted my saturday morning cartoons and I was mad. I still have the reply.... somewhere.

and I'm 47.

Warner brothers cartoons were not censored, cut or politically correct

[you] Knows there over forty, cause they dont know how I guessed they would read this.

Okay theres obviously a logical explaination here but on the surface thats scary.... :-) (was quickly scanning the thread and stopped at the above post completely at random......)

you know your over 40 because you recall a time BEFORE Star Wars

The only live game of football(soccer) shown on TV each year was the FA Cup final

When you think Batman, you think Adam West first.

You rode a Chopper bike

When you went food shopping with parents, the total family food bill for them was less than the cost of buying food for your pet today.
