Yes, I'm still looking at Sesame Street on You-Tube lol. Found something that was utterly shocking to me. Just when you think you have found a totally innocent show, something that you can enjoy with the kids, you discover that they aren't as innocent as you thought they were. Just check this blooper reel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8Vh9_Hi1kY

Most of the television shows in the the 1970's, 1980's, and 1990's were not as innocent as we would have believed them to be. So, what else is new? We all grew up on those show, but we are not totally screwed up from them, so what is there to complain about?

Well I often think The Simpsons is not really a show for kids, I think they sometimes are a little bit naughty in the things they refer to so maybe kids don't get much of a chance to be innocent for long these days...

Anything can happen in the television. Now with so many competition from others who want to attract people to watch their programs, it is not so shocking to hear that sesame street is also using some not so innocent approach. I just wish that people who produce and who are involved in producing a program be more sincere. We are talking about little kids as the viewers, aren't we? Kids are easily influenced by negative things rather than positive ones, but the truth is negative things are usually more attractive. That's the problem.

What you are saying is very true, but you should take a look at the link. I wrote this discussion a little more serious than I intended, but there is a very funny link there that you might enjoy.

Yeah, I do not allow my twins to watch this show, but it is for political reasons. Also, I am not a fan of PBS.

Did you try the link that was provided? I was a little too serious in this post, I admit, but this was meant as a joke.

I'm glad that you got it first off, and didn't get into a deep discussion about the problems of children and television programming . I meant this as a joke the entire time, but a few people have taken it to a whole different level

But they were bleeping things that didn't need to be bleeped... it wasn't the show that was 'naughty', it was the editing of these clips!
