Out of curiosity, I was checking TCM's online schedule to see what the next "Treasures From The Disney Vault" lineup would be (didn't find it at the moment). While doing so, I stumbled upon a random MGM Cartoon airing on June 2nd! And I thought, "Hey, this is pretty cool!" This got me thinking though, that perhaps this wasn't just a one-time thing, and that maybe they were airing more cartoons every Saturday morning. Turns out I was right! They've been doing so since at least March 10th too! Popeyes, Droopys, one-shot MGM toons, even Tom and Jerry!

Here's what TCM has been (and will be) playing in the coming weeks! (all times are approximations based on when they're listed on TCM's official schedule on their website; in addition, all times are listed in Eastern Daylight Time):

Great! I guess I'll wake up at around the 8:00AM mark this Saturday and turn on TCM....

I posted this a couple of weeks ago on another thread. I have Direct TV and on their program guide it now lists "The Tex Avery Show" on Saturday mornings on TCM for 23 minutes--maybe 3 Tex cartoons? We can hope. I know the first few MGM cartoons have been Tex.

Oh good, the variety of MGM cartoons on TV again which I hadn't seen in years.

My apologies, I didn't see any posts on here about this. I wouldn't have mentioned it otherwise. :/

Interesting that your Direct TV guide lists The Tex Avery Show on TCM - my AT&T U-Verse guide just shows the main feature presentation, and makes absolutely no mention of cartoons on the schedule (guess I'll have to fast-forward through my DVR recording to find them on Saturday! :P). I'd love to see that be true though! :)

Wonderful news!

Speaking of MGM, maybe said company should also hop on board and give TCM some Pink Panthers as well. ;)
