ABC Saturday Morning 1981

I have completed the 1960-1981 run of CBS and in making a guide to all posts from this series I found that I was missing a few years so I am going to go ahead and fill these in and then post the guide.

Heathcliff lost Dingbat but was paired with Marmaduke to fill in the second half hour that was open when The Superfriends was cut back to a half of an hour. The Fonz cartoon was so successful that a Laverne and Shirley cartoon was also added to the schedule. Richie Rich joined the Scooby and Scrappy Show which capped the day's schedule at 11 am, a full hour before the other two networks.
