Fine whines…

Friday, July 25th, 2008

Okay, this has nothing to do with anything important… but I am bothered by a lot of the TV Mose watches.  (and yes, now you all know I let my toddler rot his brain. Shoot me. It’s been 60 days since I had an hour of childcare.)

Not in a worried about violence or profanity kind of way. Not in a concerned parent kind of way.  Just in a what’s UP with that? kind of way.

What’s up with Caillou? Why is a four year old bald? Is this supposed to be about acceptance? White power?

What’s up with Emily Elizabeth turning blond on the Clifford TV show? She was a brunette in the original books, right?  Does she have body image issues too?

Most of all, what’s UP with the weird hermaphrodite cow on this humdinger of a program? Not that I’m anti-hermaphrodites, but what were they thinking?  There’s no explanation.

What happened to shows we grew up on, shows that made sense?  Like the smurfs and the snorks and the fraggles?  You know, quality programming.

Ah well, I guess they can’t all be WordGirl!
