Shy Posted June 30, 2002 Share Posted June 30, 2002 [color=darkblue][size=1]Anyone who has been a long time fan of the cable channel "Nickelodeon" realizes that some massive changes have come along in the past few years. When I was young, the only cartoons on Nick were "Inspector Gadget" or "Looney Tunes"; but now they show "Nick Toons" 90 percent of the time. Good shows like "Clarissa Explains it All" or "You Can't Do That On Television" are long gone, which kind of makes me mad... So anyway, I was watching some cartoon on Nick "As Told By Ginger" and they were talking about the main character having her period; [b]a girl was talking about having her period... on Nickelodeon![/b] This completely shocked me, since when did this kind of stuff classify as "children's entertainment" ? These kids shows are getting way too mature for their own good. No six year old needs to understand what a period is, they didn't talk about this kind of stuff when I was that age. On others series it is just as bad, the fourth graders of "Hey Arnold" have boyfriends and girlfriends already, what kind of message is this sending to kids? Shouldn't children's shows be about talking hamsters, or smurfs or something? Or am I just overreacting...?[/color][/size] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
