  • They have changed a little, but kids love potty humor and gross things. The last time I saw a Flintstone's cartoon on Boomerang I had completely forgotten the drunk stork, the smoking boss and all of the beating each other with clubs. I think cartoons have changed a little over the years, but I don't remember them being more amusing other than my age and the content being a factor.

  • theyve had raunchy cartoons for decades. ren & stimpy for example. and none of the cartoons i had growing up were educational (scooby doo, the smurfs, bugs bunny, etc) so this is nothing new really. atleast they have come out with some wonderful educational cartoons, but we also think spongebob is pretty funny.

  • I truly believe that today's cartoons are designed to entertain adults and not the kids...What happened to Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck....old school cartoons that taught lessons and entertained the kids....Something to be considered for revamping

  • Cartoons used to be violent, like Tom and Jerry, but what surprises me now is the sexual referencesin them. SpongeBob is prett much banned in my house.

  • We don't watch sponge bob at all, He was watching something Gumball and that got the ax pretty quickly, He was also watching Teen Titans go and that was gross, Robin was throwing leeches on himself and starfire named a parasite...that was gross. Now we are watching Masters of the Universe on DVD...

  • "What happened to Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck....old school cartoons that taught lessons and entertained the kids."

    What I learned from Bugs Bunny is that when people get shot in the face, they turn into small black children who sing "Shortnin' Bread." Was that the sort of lesson you were talking about?
