Year: 1983

By this time, video games had fully gotten the attention of the American mainstream and the idea of a line up of Saturday morning cartoons was wouldn't seem ridiculous. So when CBS decided to run Donkey Kong, Frogger, Kangaroo, Pitfall, Q Bert and Space Ace, as their Saturday Supercade package, they had hit a gold mine. The classic arcade game inspired cartoons ran all the way up until 1985 proving that video games could indeed work in television.
