Action Extreme Team, on USA Network
USA Network (archived); Wikipedia

Between 1982 and 1996, there was an animation block on USA Network called USA Cartoon Express, though I don't recall if I ever saw that. I didn't get cable until fall of 1995, so it's possible I watched a bit of the final year of that block's existence. But in September 1996, it was replaced by "Action Extreme Team," which lasted until September 1998. It's funny, I had thought the block aired on Saturday mornings, but looking at the old schedule on the archived site, it seems it mostly aired on Sundays, and Saturday was the only day it didn't air. Although now that I think about it... Sunday morning does begin to sound right. Hmmm.

Anyway, the only show I'm sure I watched in this block was Wing Commander Academy, but it's possible I might have watched a bit of some of the block's other shows. I rather doubt it, though. Some of the shows in this block, like Sailor Moon, I know I watched elsewhere, but I don't recall whether or not I also saw them here. But most of the shows in the block are things I either have no recollection of ever having heard of, or else I vaguely recall being aware of but having no interest in. Though there also might have been some things I wanted to see, but didn't bother with because I didn't get a chance to watch them from the beginning.
