What the World Needs Now is Less Cartoon Network

  1. Heather says:

    This is exactly why we don’t have cable! My preschooler was introduced to CN when we visited my parents and we watched it. If I ever have to sit through another episode of Uncle Grandpa or anything like it, it will be too soon.

    This post is soooo true!!!! My kids followed the exact same sequence and CN is on ALOT! But now we are moving on WWE (wrastling!) Seriously…. just go outside!!!

    OMG!!!! Is that her REAL VOICE?? Goes to show you how out of the loop I am!
    It sounds like most kids make the same transition from Nic and/or Disney to Cartoon Network. In my son’s cartoon watching days on CN he had: Powderpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, Ed, Edd and Eddy, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken.
    I miss those days!

      It seems like the cartoons used to be better on Cartoon Network– or maybe I was just younger and could handle it better!

    I’m not ashamed to say that I have banned MANY of the shows on Cartoon Network and have flirted with the idea of not letting my kidswatch it at all. It’s so inappropriate and I don’t like that my little sponges seem to pick up on the rude dialogue and “Weirdness”. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a Duggar either, but some of the things I’ve seen on Adventure Time have me seriously puzzled about whattheeverlovingheck is going on w/ children’s programming. We recently moved and we haven’t turned our cable on. I can honestly say I am tempted to never have it turned on again.

    • suburbanturmoil says:

      You’re smart to do that! It’s a lot easier to ban it before they start watching than after. I guess the only good thing about Cartoon Network is that it helps me very strictly enforce the one hour limit- because I seriously can’t take more than one hour of hearing that noise in this house!

    I hate Sam and Cat. That voice drives me insane. I’m pretty sure the writers of Adventure Time are all on drugs.

    My husband (huge Andy Griffith fan) and I (Little House fanatic, as in I’ve met cast members) would love your previous TV schedule.

    If you hate SpongeBob, you would love Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America. Everytime your bracelet or ticket is scanned, Spongebob’s laugh comes out of the scanner. It’s absolute torture.

      That laugh is straight from Satan. I think it’s going to haunt my dreams for the next two decades.

    Watching anything on Cartoon Network is like vacationing in the 7th Circle of Hell. My 8-year-old son loves their awful shows. I am convinced that a requirement for writing for CN is that you are constantly tripping on Acid. Thank goodness, he informed me yesterday that he no longer likes Clarence because it’s gotten too weird. That made me laugh because I thought it was horrible to begin with, but it’s a start.

    I can relate completely…. currently watching Gumball…off the dvr… #awful #DVRwontRecordMyHousevwivesItsFull #CartoonNetworkHasOverloadedMyLIfe.

    I must be a weirdo. I love Adventure Time and Gravity Falls and enjoy watching them with my kids. There are annoying ones (Clarence has been banned in our house altogether) but I enjoy them way more than the formulaic Disney shows…those made me want to poke my eyes and ears out.

    • suburbanturmoil says:

      I used to LOVE the Powerpuff Girls- and I’d probably like some of the shows in limited doses. But right now, it’s what’s the kids ALWAYS choose when they have TV time and as background noise, it’s freaking annoying. LOL

    I’m laughing so hard right now. I’m actually one of those weird people that enjoy cartoon network. I agree with the humor sometimes boardering on a little too suggestive but they have some funny shows. I guess some of the shows match my crazy and dramatic imagination. I just can’t stand Annoying Orange. Hate it with a passion. My 5 year old knows to turn it when it comes on lol. I like Gumball and Regular show is one of our favorites. Oh boy…let me just have a self relflective moment.

    I am so with you! Sam and Cat was about the most obnoxious thing ever, and my daughter started to talk like Ariana Grande. Made me want to punch my sweet little girl. Who cast that girl in anything? She had multiple tv shows, and I know personally at least 10 teenagers who are better actors in my area (we are into community theater). Anyway, my kids are clearly on the same path as yours…Teen Titans is our go-to at the moment. I cringe to wonder what week be next.
