Default MeTV May schedule change (The Addams Family)

Small schedule change on MeTV starting May 3rd. The Addams Family replaces The Flintstones weekdays at 6 p.m. Eastern. The Flintstones will now only be seen on Sunday mornings.

It also appears Pink Panther cartoons join the lineup on Saturday mornings starting on May 15th.

Full schedule: https://drive.google.com/file/d/18sH...ew?usp=sharing

I'm surprised at this change, I thought The Flintstones was doing well. The Addams Family has only 64 episodes, METV tends to schedule shows that can run for awhile in a timeslot, I don't see that happening here.

Cool that we are getting a new cartoon for Saturday morning. Overall, it's not a bad deal for 60's sitcom fans.

The Addams Family might be a summer thing, run the series twice through Labor Day. It seems an odd fit between Adam (Addams)-12 and Happy Days. Maybe other changes coming there.

It'll be interesting to see what set of Pink Panthers they have.

I like seeing Pink Panther here and I wonder if it's going to be thrown in with the other Toon In with Me cartoons during Toon In with Me on Weekdays. The Addams Family probably isn't going to last long in that timeslot and likely will go back to Flintstones, in my opinion, but they should still have it on Sundays or something like that.

Hoped they would've added Woody Woodpecker or another HB cartoon, but still a move in the right direction I guess.

I hope so. Some of these b/w cartoons that go back into the early 1930s are a real drag (IMO) and I wouldn't mind seeing them reduced.

Small schedule change. I hope this isnít the official Summer Of Me schedule. Nice to see The Addams Family though!

Re: Addams Family and Pink Panther. Maybe a result of This-TV sale - the MGM/UA library now available. Could Patty Duke and Mister Ed be on the way? Svenghoolie could get some AIP movies.

Pink Panther could be a rightful add into the SatAM anime block on MeTV

Right, it was added. They took a half hour of Popeye away.

I wonder why The Addams Family is replacing The Flintstones.

The Addams Family could just be a Summer of Me thing. Only a short-term airing through the summer and The Flintstones will return in the Fall. I remember The Flintstones brought in huge ratings for MeTV and started the cartoon revolution on the channel, so it would be strange to see it phased out weekdays permanently. Only time will tell.

Pink Panther is an excellent choice to the Saturday Mornings Cartoon block. I guess Popeye isn't doing too well, so they cut a half hour on them.

The only thing I'm worried about with MeTV, is that they get too looney toony with the lineup. I love the cartoons but we still have a huge library of retro live-action shows that could be on the channel and also the dream continues for when they finally replace/cut out the boring weeknight lineup and the westerns.
