What Has Happened to Children TV Shows?!
You all probably remember the good old 90's shows. Oh, the nostalgia I get when I think back. Do you remember the times when children TV shows actually taught a lesson? That actually were modest and entertaining enough for the whole family? I have some DVD's and recorded VHS tapes of my favorite shows as a kid stashed away somewhere in the attic or basement. And when I decide to take them out and watch them out, it's still entertaining. No matter how many times I watch them, I'll always laugh at the same joke a gazillion times. But lately, I turned on the TV, and decided to switch to the kids channel just to see if any of my favorite shows still aired. Boy was I wrong. What I saw was endless torture of little animated aliens dancing around muttering gibberish. How entertaining, I'm sure kids will learn a lot from this show (not). And that was just one show, the other shows weren't much different. I frantically looked to see if any of the good shows I remembered still aired. I saw a couple, but when I watched the current episodes, I realized that the newer producers ruined my favorite shows. Do you guys remember Franklin? That cute, animated turtle? Well, they absolutely ruined the story line of the episodes, and they ruined animation! The lovable, handrawn animations I had come to know and love were turned into 3D computer rendered animations, which look horrific. And the plot is simply disgusting and sad. What has the world come to? They call this entertainment? I miss the 90's, and not just because my childhood is there, but because it's where the entertainment was more modest. Writers and animators put more passion into their work, and cared for the children. I know as a fact, that I will never let my children watch the rubbish we have today.
