I’d hoped to confirm that I did indeed see Star Blazers on a Philly station, even though I was in New Jersey but I only knew WHERE on the old cable box I pressed. It was “15”. Thankfully someone on Reddit posted THEIR NJ 1980s Cable Box, precisely the layout I had and it confirmed who broadcast the show I watched. Thank you JERROLD

ok, technically possible: but I’d have been in school at 2:30pm and at 7 years old, I don’t know if it would have hooked me. But I recognize all of those shows so it’s still possible. But the 83 airing is far more likely.
