KA-BLAM! III: The Return of Saturday Morning
On November 6th, 2010, the the ToonSeum celebrates memories of Saturday mornings filled with cartoons, breakfast cereals and animated heroes. Jim Martin (Gary Gnu of the Great Space Coaster) and David Newell (Mr. McFeely of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood) will be on hand throughout the evening, along with live music, a silent auction with unique experiences, food, drink, and plenty of cartoons.

The evening will kick off with a special VIP reception featuring a conversation with Caroll Spinney. Caroll is best known for his portrayals of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street. Caroll is also a talented cartoonist, painter and illustrator. Attendees of the VIP reception will receive a signed print from Caroll, along with a ToonSeum Membership.

After the VIP reception, the ToonSeum kicks open the doors for KA-BLAM! III: The Return of Saturday Morning. This year's blast is a celebration of cartoons, comics and everything else that made our mornings special. With cartoons, hands on activities, entertainment and much more, the event is a great chance for grown ups to let their inner child out to play and party.

The annual fundraiser benefits the ToonSeum, Pittsburgh's Museum of Cartoon Art. The ToonSeum, located in Downtown Pittsburgh's Cultural District, is one of only three museums in the nation dedicated to the comic and cartoon arts.
