The St. Petersburg Times reports that many parents are upset at Nickelodeon for airing Glenn Martin, DDS on the main Nickelodeon channel as early as 8:00 PM, meaning younger children will go from the silly antics of SpongeBob SquarePants to sex jokes and cartoon violence of Glenn Martin.

"Dora's Christmas Carol Adventure": Seasonal Lessons, Sweetly Told

You know, I have to admit it: Dora’s Christmas Carol Adventure is actually pretty good. Now, before you accuse me of going all soft and gooey on account the Christmas theme, I’ll just thank you to click over and read this little notice; does that sound like the work of a man ready to roll […]

"Saturday Morning Cartoons: The 1970s Vol. 2": The Nightmare Continues

I recently confessed to being a child of the 1970s, which in animation terms is like confessing to having grown up on a Nevada A-bomb test site.

Volume 2 provides more Looney Tunes than Vol. 1 did, which of course pleases me as a LT fan. True, some […]

"Peanuts" 1970s Collection: Mush from the Wimp

I’m a child of the 1970s—excuse me a moment while go apply some of Grandpa Simpson’s Old-Timey Medicinal Lineament to my arthritic joints—and the Peanuts specials were a staple of the holidays. (Keep in mind, this was back when you only had five or six channels tops, so a special was a special.) The great […]

The Latest "Yo Gabba Gabba!", "Backyardigans," and "Kai-lan" DVDs from Nickelodeon

Nickelodeon has just released three more DVDs of their popular pre-school programming. The results won’t surprise anybody keeping track of Nick’s pre-school programming (or my reviews of them): Yo Gabba Gabba! is awesome, The Backyardigans is a surprisingly fun pleasure, and Ni Hao, Kai-lan is a pleasant variation on Dora the Explorer. YO GABBA GABBA! […]
