Cartoon Poll for Grown-Ups

 Moms, Dads, Aunts, Uncles, Grandmas, Grandpas…
What current cartoon do you find the most enjoyable (or perhaps least annoying!) that your kids love? I could watch classic Looney Tunes or Merrie Melodies all day, but the reality is that if broadcasters today aired golden age Bugs Bunny et al, they would have to edit out all insensitive material, politically incorrect scenes, allusions to 1940s celebrities, and violence. The toons would then be thirty seconds long including the opening titles!

Warner Borthers Merrie Moldies
Here's an entire classic Bugs cartoon edited to today's standards...

So that leaves us with today’s popular and, in some cases, educational cartoons on Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, and PBS. While there’s no Daffy Duck in this crowd, I do find myself laughing along with my daughter, humming their songs, and noticing lines that were obviously written for parents.   

Please vote for the cartoon you find most enjoyable or maybe most tolerable for YOU to watch with the kids:   

Phineas and Ferb   

Little Einsteins   

Handy Manny   

Spongebob Squarepants   

Fairly Odd Parents   

Dora Explorer   

Go Diego Go   

Super WHY   

Martha Speaks   


Wonder Pets   

Word Girl   

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
