From TVNewsCheck , MeTV is launching a one-hour morning show, Toon In With Me, that will lead into classic cartoons from the WarnerMedia library, including Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, and Fleischer's Popeye. Also premiering: Saturday Morning Cartoons, a three-hour block of WarnerMedia-owned animated classics reminiscent of the Saturday Morning blocks of old.

Sounds like it will be fun but maybe a little dopey with the live hosts.

MeTV always strikes me as pretty tame, so I'd be very surprised if they air any shorts that haven't been "cleared to air" elsewhere. I can't imagine seeing anything controversial there.

It will be interesting to see how long something like this lasts on MeTV, or how long it can air in such huge blocks. I don't know if classic cartoons will appeal to their audience enough to merit so many hours, filling spots that have been running b/w westerns etc for so long.

Plus, the MeTV audience seems about as resistant to change as they come. Pick a show, say, Mama's Family or some other old show. They can run it in the same time slot, five days a week for literally years, and the second they take it off the schedule for something else, two dozen cranky old whiners immediately start posting to the website that MeTV needs to bring that show back.

It'll be a fun experiment anyway. Sounds like something Boomerang should have done a few years back, but that's a whole other can of worms.

“The Flintstones” have been on MeTV for a year now and not once have they aired the episode “The Prowler”. If they won’t air that, it is a given that certain shorts won’t air at all, while others could possibly air with edits.

I wouldn't be surprise if that was the case.

Slightly off-topic, but the episode is on the new anniversary Blu-Ray, right?

The Prowler episode is on the set. Here's a screen grab from that Cereal at Midnight review of the set on Youtube.

Also, the guy said in his review that the set starts with the standard WB disclaimer about images that were wrong then, they're wrong now, etc.
I have to assume that was in reference to episodes like The Prowler.
