i was lying on the couch this morning, just feeling really crappy, when i turned on pbs kids. (we don't get cable)

i was confused by this show. even through half open eyes, i felt a little disturbed by the gang here. let's forget the over sized heads for a minute and lets take a count. cute latino girl...check. super hero boy...check. other girl...check. pig boy....che...what?

is anybody else concerned about a pig joining up with a bunch of kids? what does this mean? it's true, i'm tired, but i don't get this show.

then there was this one, that came on right after:

i was even more tripped out. i mean, the words are walking around talking. did these animators take acid? or am i really THAT tired? and this is supposed to encourage reading? i was frightened. really frightened.

there are also these guys. i don't even know what they are, but they were a book, so that is okay? did anybody ever question the author writing about various rodents as people. some even look a little too human. or like celebrities. if that isn't creepy, i'm not sure what is.

and lets not forget

because that right there is just wrong. and he loves all little children. does he secretly take them in the back and eat them? just sayin'.

i think i might just have needed to stick in that stupid cars movie we've seen 1.5 million times. of course i have issues with that too. like why do they have doors? how do baby cars come into the world (is that the reason for cars doors)? and how do they do things without hands? just tires? and those eyes are just eerie...

all that aside, i guess these are much better than the uber creepy veggie tales. i can say, if i were to just listen, it would be a lot better than seeing the creepy appendage-less, talking, gospel spouting veggies.

and we wonder why t.v. is so bad for our children...

Oh man. You crack me up. The sad part is, it's all true. Disturbingly so. You are too funny!

It's so true. I'm not even sure how it can be classified as entertainment, really. I don't remember tv being this lame when I was a kid.

I agree! We don't have tv, but every time I am exposed to it I am amazed at how crappy it is! We do have a vcr and dvd player, but I feel like the shows we have are slightly less mind numbing.
Great post with great pics!
