I totally agree here, the TV cartoons of today are so mind-numbing I cannot even watch them anymore. The background music is what is mind numbing, and
so is some video game's music, the same tune over and over. What happened to Sesame Street? My kids watched that, and they learned things from the

or one is gone, or one is on drugs, there are many latch key kids in America. We have to strap them in the car, and we have to take them out if we are
gone from the car for two seconds, I remember making mine go out to the car when they wouldn't mind, and stay in there, in the parking lot. Try that
