    Four of them I don't know. Am I undereducated?

    I don't know that blue thing front middle. Also that Muppet baby's name eludes me... I was never a Muppet fan.

    In terms of educated... It's not how much you know, but the quality and application of what it is that you do know. If you know just one thing, but you know it absolutely and completely... That is preferable to having a universe size mind filled with superficial trivia.

    Ah. I never saw that as a kid. Maybe it didn't air in this country. Wonder why it made me think of something we did have... Widget the World Watcher:

    Yeah, the front row is, what I don't know except the gummy bear.

    You named yourself Eight Bit.
    I'd say they are tomatos. And, who's the guy on the red box?

    Jimney Cricket maybe?

    I saw an Adult Swim cartoon they recently put on TV here that had at least the Smurfs, Alf and the Turtles in it, but I guess that's a show for older people too.

    Why is Fred Flinstone a child? And what is that freakish looking horse/human thing? Is it Trump's other (centaur) self?

    No. That "thing" sat beside Beetlegeuse eating cereal with what looks like a horse's face.

    I hadn't noticed that one tbh, I already thought I was boss when I noticed the pink panther in the back ;) Don't know which character that is... To be honest, most of the characters in that picture are a bit after my pre-teen cartoon period, The cartoons on dutch TV were a slow in pace but I do remember watching them because there was nothing else on any of the 2 channels we had (in black&white) :D after we got a cable and thus a couple more channels I remember I got up early in the morning in the weekends to watch sky channel's fun factory with Inspector gadget, Jayce and the Wheeled warriors, He-Man, Transformers etc. and we also had BBC which broadcasted Ulysses 31 among other things.

    For your entertainment a youtube of cartoons from late 70's, early 80's I grew up with :D


    And a couple I mentioned from the time we got cable \o/

    Same here on school days you couldn't get me out of bed, but on the weekends I woke up between 0500 and 0600. Not even that I intended to get up.

    Thanks @Eight Bit, I guess that one didn't reach the UK (or I completely missed it)

    @Cerbera If I were to attempt that, I'd rather get honey from matzesu than downing that stuff.

    That video cut off too early. I might not want actual documentary evidence of the consistency of his next shit, but I'd expect him to feel a little odd the rest of the day.

    sounds like a good way to kill a diabetic person, or make oneself diabetic.

    [obviously not recommended, in either case.]
