    It was asked, what about kids shows. In a way, I’m glad the networks try to avoid it because with their oftentimes leftist bent, the’d’ use it to spread their agendas.d-9/#post-186794″>skiwest wrote:How about something for the kids?

    I’m glad I grew up in the 60s. I’m not sure I would want to be a kid now.

    Whenever have Saturday morning cartoons been used to espouse the editorial position of a broadcast network? They were used to sell toys and nothing more.

    Recorded in Ultra Stereo, the ultimately superior cousin to Normal Stereo!

    And unhealthy cereals. My parents had enough sense to feed their kids Malt-O-Meal and oatmeal instead of sugary sweets. But I liked Rocky and Bullwinkle, even though I didn’t fully understand the cold war sarcasm at the time. And Bugs Bunny was awesomely politically incorrect for this day and age. I’m with Skiwest, I’m glad I was a kid back then too.

    Thing about Rocky and Bullwinkle, General Mills actually had an active hand in production! They just never exerted any editorial control (like physically excising Jay Ward’s Cold War gags) but also explains why it’s always been available for barter.

    The most successful cartoons of the 1980s either came about via toy lines (He-Man, Transformers, Care Bears) or spawned a massive merch empire (the original TMNT). And it almost happened with the Garbage Pail Kids before CBS realized what they actually commissioned and pulled the show before it ever ran.

    In other news, it was reported that Mr. Basalla was seen yelling at younger citizens to get off his lawn

    With Dr. Oz now on WBNX, and the station no longer affiliated with any network, could it be a sign that their programming lineup is improving?

    I recall in the 1990s walking past a TV set in a public place on a Saturday morning and on it was a cartoon show on one of the big 3 networks.  It was agenda driven with animated characters standing around talking about global warming.  There were some good tips on being environmentally friendly.

    Must be referring to Captain Planet.

    It was a Ted Turner creation, and aired on the Superstation as well as being syndicated in the 90s.

    That was one kid show that made no bones about their politics.
