Saturday morning cartoons…

A day I never thought I’d see: Saturday, October 4, 2014, there were no Saturday morning cartoons.

I haven’t actually watched Saturday cartoons in decades. I won’t miss them or anything. And I think it’d be great if thousands of kids weren’t parked parked in front of the TV so they could absorb early-propoganda lessons about Stuff They Need To Buy. But I’m not that naive. There is still “children’s programming” and there are lots of commercials for those.

And handing your kid the iPad or tablet and letting them play on that for hours isn’t a big improvement over cartoons.

It’s just another name for “keeping the kids entertained”. And yeah there’s educational stuff available on the net. Oh yeah, kids are turning that on, right.

Kind of makes me miss the cartoons, actually.
