ABC Saturday Morning Line Up: 
Christmas Eve, December 24, 1983

by Billy Ingram

Here’s the actual Saturday morning kiddie lineup exactly as it aired on December 24th 1983.

As was the trend dating back decades, programs created for the youngest audience aired earliest, shows for somewhat older children were scheduled later in the morning. But, judging from this lineup, all of ABC’s Saturday morning shows were skewed toward the very young.
