Growing up as an only child with a single parent, I had a lot of time to myself. Most days I was home alone from the time school ended (usually around 2:30-3:00pm) until around 7:00pm when my mom would get home from work. Saturday mornings were more of the same, as my mom would sleep in and recover from a long week.
Like most kids, my free time was filled with video games, comic books, and playing outside with my friends. But, the thing I loved to do the most was watch cartoons.
