  • I have 4 boys and I have ran the gauntlet on small children programming.

    First it was Barney, who after a while can start to become quite frightening!

    Then it was Blues Clues...Steve is way funnier than Joe and I actually began to like these episodes although just like the Old Tom and Jerry versus the New Tom and Jerry...the new Blues Clues pales in comparison to the old versions.

    Last I had to go through the pokemon stage! I do not know who the critics are that say different but Japanes animation is awful!! I truly believe that any of my children could do a better job with minimal training!

    My heart goes out to you. I love my children and I would let them watch pretty much anything they wanted in the beggining but as I, and my children, have gotten older I am not so willing!

    Stay strong my friend!

  • It does get better. My oldest daughter will be four in June. She too did the Oz thing at two.. Dressed up for Trick-or-treating in a costume that took me hours on my sowing machine. She tapped around the house in her ruby slippers until they were too tight. Now, it is on to bigger and better things. Now, it is Hannah Montana-tolerable. Much better than the Lollipop Guild. Trust me it could be worse-remember the Teletubbies?

  • I just spent a week with my 2 yr old cousin and her thing is Dora. Everything and anything Dora. I must admit...not too bad as far as cartoons go. It drove me crazy when my little brother was in the Pokemon/Yugioh stage!

  • Parenting, It's amazing isn't it? I remember Ninji Turtles, Barney, winnie the Pooh,Bananna's in Pajamma's, Blue's Clue's with Steve, Gargoyels, Poki Mon and Power Rangers. I have seen Beauty and the Beast , Lion King and Alladin probably 100 times , thats not a joke either. But you know what? they loved it! and I watched it with them ,even those annoying telly tubbies OH! MY! those were misery! But I would not change a thing. I too Loved the wizard Of Oz and had to wait every thanksgiving time to watch it cause they only showed it once a year on tv. Just like willy wonka. Some day you will think gosh where did time go? I miss it when my kids were babies and liked the goofy kids shows, I enjoy them now as well. Just remember they all will watch those goofy shows. Have fun.
