Won’t Somebody PLEASE Think of the Children!

August 28, 2008

Sometimes I feel old.  Writing this post does that to me.

I remember back when I was a kid, television occasionally tried to teach us something:  Save The Planet, Stop Don’t Touch Me There, and Spinach Makes You Strong were just some of my worldly lessons I recieved as a child.  Today, children subsist on mindless, disgusting drivel.

As evidence of the decline in children’s television, I cite two data points:  Animaniacs (good) and the appropriately (i.e. idiotically) named Yo Gabba Gabba.

First, Animaniacs:

Note:  You can tell how old this is by the number of countries listed that no longer exist.  I count 5.  Most due to Balkanization (like the Balkans), and some due to name changes.

Now for stupid:

You need not watch until the end, but at least take a look at from 0:55 to 1:45.

‘Nuff said.

But try out some more Animaniacs, just for fun:

<note:  some numbers are wrong, but I will forgive them>
