  • When my kids were little, there was Loony Tunes and Huckleberry Hound, Flinstones, whatever was on .... and they watched them all.
    My grandkids watched Tellitubbies and the Backyardigans and Sesame Street...all good ones. We all like SpongeBob too. He is harmless, silly and goofy --but harmless.

  • There are numerous ones. The Simpsons, Family Guy, King of the Hill to name a few. All for the very same reason- they're filthy.

  • spongebob square pants, first of all the song is annoying as hell, second some of the humor is ment for teens not little kids. then u have ur "evening cartoons" for adults that they dont watch either.

  • The Simpson-vulgar, Family Guy- majoroly vulgar, SpongeBob- sexual humor not appropriate for kids, teletubbies-just too frickin weird,other 'kid' shows not allowed Hannah Montana-BAD examples of how to behave, overt sexual references.

  • Well just because they are animated does not mean they are geared for children. My boys are only 4 and 5. We stick to Nick Jr. We avoid Yo Gaba Gaba just because it is annoying and freaky.

  • Adult focused cartoons we avoid for the kids. I am not too particular, if it comes on Nick or Nick jr or Disney during the day, I don't mind. they have their favorites right now, so they just watch those until they get tired of them (super why and word girl on PBS, Tom and Jerry, Kick Buttowski)

  • Oh--and the ones you mention such as Family Guy and the Simpsons---they are adult shows and they are not shown on the Disney Channel or PBS. So....nobody watches either of those. Not even me.
