    All of today's children shows are retarded. Anyways, I used to like Blue's Clues.

    While you were watching Blue's Clues people were saying that the shows they watched as kids were great and your shows were retarded. It is the curse of youth to repeat the same mistakes as their elders.

    This. Blue's Clues was pretty shitty and (I think it's still airing) is also a retarded show. At least I watched cartoons when they were still ugly drawn.

    Yeah, that was a nice show, of course as well as kenan & kel (the opening song is pretty cool) and clarissa...
    as a toddler i used to watch Sesame Street's Mexican Equivalent named Plaza S├ęsamo, it was a good show, it actually teached something to kids...

    I never watched that, I thought it was dumb.. Never could get into it.


    ----------------------------------------------------------

    Anyone remember All That? It was the Saturday Night Live for kids.
    And then I think they ditched it for The Amanda Show or something later on. That was pretty funny too, so I didn't complain.

    When I was a kid, I never watched TV, so I never got any kids shows that I really liked.


    Pretty proud of it.

    Sigh I'm not sure it's about getting old, but the fact that tv quality for kids has gone into the shitter. I mean if you think about it Disney Channel in general when it was younger had some fantastic programming for example. You had a few hours of all the old b&w/color Disney shorts, the costumed Winnie the Pooh show, Mickey Mouse Club with all those future musician crackheads, a ton of their classic disney movies and the weekend wonderful world of disney they jacked from ABC and more. Eventually they got into heavy programming with weird sitcoms, a few were decent, but most were just stupid bad, like some UPN for kids or whatever, and then way down hill in the last decade with nothing but manufactured boy/girl band bullshit, pitching thug concepts on kids, and other crap. Nickelodeon pretty much went down the same road from where it was I Can't Believe You Did that on TV, Dangermouse, various other toons, Count Duckula too, Double Dare in various forms, and then a good bit of those old b&w moralistic shows of the 50s-70s that ended up being nick at nite, and then a channel just for that.

    All around that you even saw the hard decline of cartoon quality from the late 80s on. Originally you had some cartoon violence (hardly but still) with lasers in GI Joe to Fudd blowing Daffys bill clean off. All these things and even other (then) modern equivalent were hand drawn, good enough to excellent (the older theater level stuff) attention to detail, and they were what they were without a bunch of cuts and do-gooder ruination. First that kicked in, and then it (as it should) seemed to demotivate animators along with higher costs of work. Suddenly much programming got into very shittily drawn backgrounds with little detail to having 1/2 the frames of animation so it was like a poorly done flip book. Most them it seemed felt concepts were burnt out as much just copied other stuff and not all that well, all the while censoring out a lot of quality stuff that could, should, or was already in there. Now the toons we see short of the brought over anime and a few cases is terrible, some promoting thug crap, others just being senseless wastes of space, and other stuff drawn so badly it's like some epileptic five year old did it like that insultingly shitty ed, edd, and eddy one.

    I've watched stuff for a good long time I've seen the decline in quality. The late 80s/early90s was really end of of it with cartoons from Duck Tales/Tale Spin down to the turds of one season or less trash. Kids programming has gone from funny whoa he did that stuff, to hipster bullshit with again thug stupidity, all fit in me too crap, censored stuff, and boy/girl bad promotional bullshit programming. Fact is it seems as time goes on more and more channels are made to make more room for some really bad crap to be wasted on in the satellite feeds momentarily on the new channel leaving room for some of the stuff of value before it's shoved off yet again until another channel pops up in the series.
