2. Harlem Globetrotters

1970’s Harlem Globetrotters actually holds the distinction of being the first Saturday morning cartoon to feature a primarily African-American cast. Created by cartoon legends William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, the show followed fictionalized versions of the most popular Globetrotters roster (one of whom was voiced by actor Scatman Crothers). Every week, the Globetrotters would basically travel to some new place, involve themselves in some local issue, and then squash said beef with the funky power of basketball.
