I think about this topic quite a bit. My kid is eight, and likes Sponge Bob, which I can't stand because of the annoyance factor. Other than that,
the show seems mostly wholesome with positive messages. There are a few questionable innuendos, but mainly they would go over his head.
He also likes Mad, The Regular Show, and Adventure time. These also have some questionable items (language, adult themes, etc.), but mainly , they
are funny to him. I'm glad he has a sense of humor.
When I compare it to Tom and Jerry, or a lot of other Hanna Barbera (sp?) toons, I see that growing up , my sister and I were indeed purveyors of the
'ol ultra violence, which my son also adores.
I think the biggest problem I'm seeing is the way kids are talking to each other these days. Semms like the language is downright nasty all the
time. Don't get me wrong, we were prickish as kids, but I don't remember being as sophisticated in my abilities to insult other kids.
Seriously though, you are right.
T.V is the devil.
