This was producer Jay Ward's first animated series and the first made-for-television cartoon series, but since it was sold city by city and not directly to a network, it isn't always recognized as the first animated TV-series (despite being broadcast in 1949, earlier than any other animated TV-series).

If you grew up in the 50's and were close enough to a big city, like I was in New York, then you were treated to Saturday morning cartoons. As a Baby Boomer, I watched Crusader Rabbit on WNBC Channel 4 From NYC. It was the first Cartoon on Saturday Morning. The theme to this show was found on AudioGalaxy. They were fun in black and white whith Crusader Rabbit and Rags the Tiger. Jay Ward gave us many fine Cartoons that were remembered by many, but Crusader Rabbit was one of his first and best. I agrre with the other writer that it would be nice to have them on DVD or even tape. Kids today don't have what we had in the way of good wholesome cartoons.
