MyLifeIsAverage. Life is pretty normal today.
Today I realized that indigo isn't part of the rainbow, Pluto isn't a planet, Dora the explorer is now a teen, and the cookie monster likes veggies. How much more can they ruin childhood? MLIA

I broke down into tears at the cookie monster thing.

I have great news. I was watching sesame street with my friend the other day and cookie monster was eating cookie again:):) it made my day.
[ - ]  stereotypedGood: 25Bad: 08 years, 8 months ago
yeah...i think they tried it for a while, but it didn't work. so he's still cookie monster.
[ - ]  wesaynicoleGood: 31Bad: 08 years, 8 months ago
alright call me crazy, but I saw a cookie monster sticker recently and he looked a loooot fatter than the cookie monster i grew up with. please tell me this isn't the result of health freaks trying to teach kids a lesson. cause I grew up just fine. i think.. :)

I don't see how the person who posted the MLIA ran over this... but I'd say that the worst kid show replacement has to be Winnie the Pooh. They used to have 'The many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh'. But they've now replaced it with 'My friends Tigger and Pooh' which is about them solving mysteries. The worst part about the new show is that Christopher Robin was replaced by a stupid girl named Darby and her dog Buster. Oh the SHAME! :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

Magenta and Blue are both girls and are only friends. lets all remember little kids cant handle romance
[ - ]  stereotypedGood: 10Bad: 08 years, 8 months ago
Blue has always been a girl. I knew that even in my childhood, but I guess I'm the only one. It was kind of confusing though, but I guess Magenta is a boy...? and I agree, Joe sucks. I like Steve.
[ - ]  DwRadiceGood: 14Bad: 08 years, 8 months ago
as it has been said, Blue has always been a girl along with Magenta. They are just friends with no intimate relationship.. and Steve did not die, he left voluntarily to pursue a music career

[ - ]  kuracaraGood: 11Bad: 08 years, 8 months ago
Yeah blue has ALWAYS been a girl, though i was surprised when i first heard as well And Steve was arrested, i think for drugs, so he had to be written off the show. Ironically, they used to excuse "He's going to college!" We now know how the people over at Blue's Clues spent THEIR college years
[ - ]  KandiceMRGood: 5Bad: 08 years, 8 months ago

And one of the Tellie Tubbies is gay. I'm not kidding. EDIT: okay, so the Tellie Tubbies show got sued because apparently, Tinky Winky is supposed to be a guy but he carries a purse. And our ruined childhood can be explained in two words: Hannah Montana.

[ - ]  BandGeekLoveGood: 15Bad: 08 years, 8 months ago
I didn't say it bothered me. In fact I don't care if guys carry purses. But some tight ass parents can't handle imaginary figures who are supposedly guys carrying purses in little kid shows. I just hate how they got sued :(

Po was always my favourite. For my third birthday, I got a Po suit, and wore it ALL the time. I felt sorry for her because she was the littlest and I thought that she didn't get videos played on her tummy as much as the other teletubbies. Plus, she had a scooter
[ - ]  ancientonceGood: 5Bad: 18 years, 8 months ago
Spongebob is definitely out to eat the souls of young children. It's just not because he's gay. Also, Po is awesome. Thank you. That is all.

It's because in New Zealand they were worried about child obesity. They though the Cookie MOnster might be contributing to that so they had him eat vegetables to teach the kids.

I never learned it as part of the rainbow... I'm 21.. I don't if that means anything.. was it before or after I was in kindergarten? besides, it makes sense to me.. Indigo is half blue half purple/violet right? but none of the other colors are tertiary colors, so why is that one included and not turquoise or red-orange or magenta? makes sense to me.. leave the main colors as the primary colors (red, yellow, and blue) and the secondary colors (the in-between ones, what you get when you mix the primaries: orange, green, and purple)

wikipedia is the best resource there is panicatthedisco. lol, i know you can edit it, but i'm serious, ALL of my graduate student teaching assistants use it and say its a valid resource most of the time. there are few topics that are disputed or involved in "edit wars" because of people's varying religious or political idealogies, and those sometimes are invalid, but even then they'll often block those off to editing. sometimes there will be joke things on there like the pink sparkle thing, but its usually a joke and the admin havent gotten to fixing it yet (but its usually within the hour). when you use it as a source you're supposed to check the edit history and you can revert back to old versions and check what they said. dont you talk about my wiki like that, he's amazing :D

Just because things were once taught doesn't mean they are still taught, "smartie." Also, "smartie", before attempting to be condescending, make sure you don't look like an idiot, and use a spell-checker. While I am not normally a spelling Nazi, I hate when people try to be snotty and smarter-than-thou, but don't bother to check themselves. However, brownie points for the screen name.

[ - ]  silentscreamGood: 1Bad: 08 years, 6 months ago
I agree, cucumberfabulous. My dad was definitely the person who disciplines in my house. He's a lawyer, and I heard him when a parent asked him what she should do about finding weed in her son's room, and if she should call the police. The first thing out of his mouth was "Make him watch you flush it down the toilet, take away his phone, car keys, music crap, tv, computer and all that stuff, and keep him in the house for the entire weekend in a room that has only a light bulb and a mattress on the floor. THAT'S discipline. You shouldn't let people get away with swearing or being disrespectful. I don't care about how sensitive people are about it; I will spank and ground my kid like that if I ever have one.

If you did you would know that by now. -Pluto is now a dwarf-planet - TV Dora is not a teen, but has launched a teenage doll that syncs with the computer..(they need some preteen item to compete with disney) -Indigo may not be taught as part of the rainbow in primary school but it is still a color on the light spectrum. -Eeyore is not dead.

Actually, the magenta one has cred. Look at a rainbow. There is no magenta. It's just what happens when our brains *attempt* to combine red and violet. But as for indigo? Pft. Look at that rainbow again. What do you see between blue and violet? Indigo? Yeah, me too. But apparently, the scientists are all going colour-blind. (-_-)

[ - ]  elfishhGood: 4Bad: 08 years, 8 months ago
According to an article I read last week, the pants are because the new movie is Autumn or something and they thought her clothes should be a bit warmer. That I can understand, but the personality change? Tink is NOT supposed to be nice. The new guy is Terrence, I think. He's a minor character from a Disney-authorized series of books who has a crush on Tink. The whole Peter thing is explained in the books, but I can't remember the details.

No way! I'm 14, nearly 15. I remember most of these. No more ROY G. BIV?! I wasn't allowed to watch Teletubbies or Arthur, although I certainly remember the shows. I grew up on the original Barney, Blues Clues (I learned the planets from there!), Pluto as a planet, The original Winnie the Pooh, watching Bill Nye the Science Guy with my parents, the original Sesame Street, Mister Rogers, Magic School Bus, and the original Scooby-Doo. I also grew up with Tom and Jerry, Flinstones, the Jetsons, Roadrunner and Wiley Coyote, Tweetie Bird and Sylvester the Cat! I remember Mother Goose, the Muppets, Oscar the Grouch in a garbage can, Count, and Elmo - long before he had his own mini-show. Now half of these are gone?! How can there be shows I grew up on that are already referred to as "oldies?" I call for the original Scooby-Doo gang, with their original van, before Velma carried a laptop. And I think we need I Love Lucy re-runs!

I'm now convinced the 90's kids had teh best childhood we had 1. Awesome Cartoons from Blue's Clues (and no Spongebob cannot compare to these cartoons) to like Hey Arnold, Rugrats, Wild Thornberry's etc 2. Our rainbow had seven colors like its supposed tooo 3. Pluto was actually a planet and you could say My Very Elegant Mother Just Served Nine Pizzas 4. Eoyere was awesome - he may have been dopey and sad, but he was awesome. And frankly taught me affection...idk about you guys 5. Our Role Models were actual Kids Not Kids pretending to be older than they were or pretending to be someone else *cough miley and Hannah Montana* 6.

Being born in 1994, I just managed to catch the end of the 90's, as well as seeing the beginning of the 21st century as a kid. (I pity my brother, 1998. He never watched Cyber Six) I grew up in a world where Richard Of York gave Battle In Vain, where there were nine planets, where Dora was a kid who needed help with everything, and where the Cookie Monster ran near and far, all the while eating a cookie. I grew up in a world where there were 151 Pokemon, where you lengthened your rip-cord and took a running start, and where you wore a crest around your neck, or had a blue card in your pocket (somehow missed World 2, and I'm glad for it.) A troll was a doll, or a mythical creature, and you wanted a House Hippo for Christmas. I grew up in a world where you still called it Christmas, you read the Old and New Testaments, and everything happened Before Christ or After Death. I grew up in a world where Eeyore spent hours building a stick tent, where the wonderful thing about tiggers was tiggers were wonderful things, and where the greatest achievement was when Goku learned Spirit Bomb. I grew up in a world where Anime was good, there were castles in the sky, Heliopolis was a space colony, and it didn't matter what GUNDAM meant, even though you knew it was the General Unilateral Neuro-link Dispersive Autonomous Maneuver Synthesis System. I grew up in a world where each card had a power it's own, and where Sonic had a brother and sister. I grew up in a world where if you wanted to race then you played Mario Kart, and if you wanted to shoot people, you played Goldeneye. And indigo, eight planets, teenage Dora, and a veggie monster. 493, you don't play with tops, Bakugan instead of Digimon, there are rules about Trolls, and the House Hippo has just *finally* returned. It's the "Holiday Season", the Hebrew Testament and Catholic Scriptures (a futile attempt at political correctness, we still argue), and it's Before Common Era, and Common Era. No more Eeyore, tigger's dead, and Goku's a kid. Again. Naruto sucks, Heliopolis is from Stargate, and there are too many acronyms for GUNDAM to remember. Nobody even remembers the CardCaptors theme, Sonic's best friend is a jerk, and they fight Dr. Ivo Eggman Robotnic. Now you race in Grand Torismo, and brutally murder people in GTA. *shakes head in disgust* Did I mention that's not an Aluminum can you're drinking from? It's Aluminium, and it's been that way since 1925. Huh. Odd.

No more blue convertible - she drives a hybrid instead. No more carrying a gun into the woods as defense against wild animals, it's "illegal." No more missing a stakeout to attend a church service - she doesn't go to church. No more classic Hardy Boys, it's Undercover Brothers. Classic detective work is for the birds, as is stumbling onto mysteries. They have to assigned to these "Undercover Brothers" in the top secret program. No more librarian mother that still allows them to solve mysteries. They have to subvert her to go on their missions. I miss the old days! By old days, I mean 14 years ago. :P

Don't forget that child psychologists diagnosed Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh with depression.

This 'Veggie Monster' nonsense is...well, nonsense. Cookie Monster is 1. still named Cookie Monster, despite oft-repeated rumours and 2. has been rapping about healthy food for a good twenty years: Remember this, anyone? t's from 1987.

I was born in 1996, so I got to grow up with some of these awesome shows. Once they got rid of them, I got rid of tv. Things suck these days.

I'm really disappointed no one mentioned any of the old playhouse Disney shows. My absolute favorite show as a kid was Rolie Polie Olie. Also, PB&J Otter. And Stanley with the great big book of everything and the cat dog and fish that all talked. Disney used to be amazing.
[ - ]  LilaBearGood: 1Bad: 08 years, 8 months ago
All those shows you just listed are relatively 'new'. How young are you?? PB&J and Stanley were introduced when I was in highschool. :P

Do not forget when they wanted to ban santa from saying "ho ho ho" and making him say "ha ha ha" because it was aperantly derogatory to women and children would be "frightened" or something like that. What do you guys think about that??
[ - ]  RaiinbowCrayonGood: 2Bad: 08 years, 8 months ago
I'm fourteen and the shows I grew up on were Caillou , The Little Lulu Show , Rugrats , Teletubbies , Magic School Bus , Bugs Bunny , Timon and Pumba and stuff like that ... I miss watching all those shows =[ When they changed Winnie the Pooh and Mickey Mouse , I was crushed . Like this Darby person ? FAIL . And Pokemon ? Pure crap now . It went downhill after Misty left . And Ash's voice changing ? Just no . GIVE ME BACK MY CHILDHOOD . And I still believe Indigo is a color > = [ Damn them scientists .

Indigo is just a type of purple, and there is purple in the rainbow. Agreed on the other things though. And now we can't have golliwog biscuits :(

I don't think that Dora being a teen is a big deal. I think the Rugrats being "All Growed Up" is the more realistic problem. They were babies for 10 years... Dora was 5 for about 2...

You poor kids, I look at these threads and realize that you had such a rough time. You never got to see the truly great television programming. You are forced to think the mediocrity of the 90's was decent. You have no idea who H. R. Puffinstuff is. You don't recognize that Bill Nye is just a failed attempt to fill Mr. Wizard's shoes. Most of you don't know Dangermouse, or even Paddington Bear. Josie and the Pussycats, Jem, Schoolhouse Rock... I could go on and on, but I think the brightest of you already see my point. The BEST children's shows are always what we grew up with, and everything after is crap. In another decade or so, kids who are watching the current crop of children's shows will be nostalgic for all the tripe we are currently griping about. It is a constant cycle. NOW GET OFF MY LAWN.
