All I really needed to know about classical music and world culture I learned by watching Saturday morning cartoons! I am a product of the 80s. With that comes a number of wonderfully nostalgic memories, including watching Saturday morning cartoons. Among them are Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny and Sylvester and Tweety, just to name a few. It wasn’t until college that I realized I actually knew Mozart, Gershwin and Beethoven because I had never chosen to listen to classical music. My choices lied in the Go Gos, Madonna and New Edition, hardly considered “classical” (although now, over 20 years later, may be considered classic!).
