I have three little ones running around this house, so we watch a lot of Nick Jr. Dora, Diego, Max & Ruby, Bubble Guppies….there are tons of them that aren’t nearly as good as I remember cartoons being. Maybe it’s because they are shows for preschoolers, but man, they are dull.
To make it easier on myself I like to answer their questions in my head with grownup answers. I also create elaborate backstories for all of the characters that fits with the storyline. In my mind, they spice berries are a code name for ecstacy, and it was stolen by the mermaids that are running a multi-layer prostitution ring that has actually hired the sidekick to do the cleanup work….basically I just lay an episode of Law & Order over the entire thing. It’s good stuff, and really makes these ridiculous shows bearable – you should try it!
The only show I don’t have to do that to is Spongebob – that show is so completely off the wall and hilarious that it entertains me on it’s own. Well done Spongebob, well done.
