The Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat-Cereal Cartoon Party
Back to School Edition!

Saturday, August 27th
10AM to 1PM
Tickets: $15 Adults / $8 Kids (Under 14) / Under 3 free!

With prize giveaways from our friends at Little Island Comics, The Big Chill, and The Candy Bar!

After our smash success in May, The Royal brings you yet another round of the wildest cartoons from yesteryear with an all-you-can-eat-cereal bar!

Remember Saturday mornings? Kids today may not realize the significance of the Saturday morning ritual, but once upon a time, we had to wait a whole week to get our cartoon fix, and when we got it, we tended to binge. In that gleefully gluttonous spirit, curator Kier-La Janisse presents a 3-hour trip down memory lane with a tribute to the eye-popping, brain-addling Saturday morning cartoons of yore, complete with a smorgasbord of delicious sugary cereals (and yes, we have non-dairy too!)! You’ll see both faves and obscurities spanning the 40s through the 80s, all punctuated with vintage commercials and PSAs! The lineup is always a secret, but there will be monsters, sci-fi, sleuths, superheroes and all kinds of 2D silliness, so get ready for a sugar rush and an explosion of nostalgia all wrapped up in one candy-coated package.
