My children have a 5 and a half year age gap, so I am subjected to quite a variety of cartoons and a lot of them leave me scratching my head. I just don’t understand some of the hows and whys, so I thought I would post them here and see if I can get some insight.
1. Curious George:
Why, in the name of all that is holy, do these people trust a monkey with this crap? Seriously, it’s like handing a toddler a bucket of paint and tell them not to open it or like handing me a package of Thin Mints and telling me I can only eat one.
2. Max and Ruby:
Where in the hell are the bunny parents?! Is it like the Duggar’s? The older ones watch the younger ones while mom and dad are off making more? Also, Ruby needs to lay off and Max may need some speech therapy or something!
3. My Little Pony Equestria Girls:
WHAT THE WHAT?!
What happened to the ponies? Are these horse girls supposed to look human? I seriously do not understand how these girls are equestrian at all!
4. The Amazing World Of Gumball:
I have simply banned this from my house because I just don’t get it and it makes me want to pull my hair out. Does anyone understand this clusterfuck of a cartoon?
He’s a boy?
No, he’s an alien?
No, they are aliens!
No wait, they are gems?
6. Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood:
I actually like this show, but why don’t the male tigers wear pants?! Everyone else wears pants. Well, except that owl who is ALWAYS naked!
7. Elmo’s World:
I don’t understand why Elmo is so popular. His voice is super annoying and he speaks in the 3rd person! Most of the kids watching him are learning how to speak, do we really want them to learn from Elmo? I’ll be honest, my kids have no idea who Elmo is and I am pretty damn happy about that!
8. Peppa Pig:
Why is Peppa so pushy? Why do they make the older sisters bossy know-it-alls?
Also, one of these days, Daddy pig is going to get sick of being fat and jolly all the time. When that happens, he will just be fat and sarcastic, like me!
9. Bubble Guppies:
Ok, are they guppies or are they mer-people? Why are they taught by a giant goldfish? That’s kind of redundant isn’t it? Also, 90% of the shit that happens on that show CANNOT take place under water. I’m just saying!
10. Uncle Grandpa:
I have no words.
I mean, why is this even on TV.
Cartoons used to make at least a little sense.
Now-a-days, they don’t have too at all. All you need is flashing bright lights, fart jokes and misplaced adult humor and you’ve got a hit cartoon.
