The Amazing World of Gumball

Chowder are the two off the top of my head-my dd9 was picking up bad habits from the shows (like in chowder there's a charecter that only says rada rada-she would only say those 2 words for Days on end)

Catscratch is another oh and caillou-that kid annoys me with his whining

I wish I could block Disney all together. The attitudes the kids have is crazy. At least the cheesy shows I watched as a kid attempted to throw in a moral dilemma and solution.

It's a pretty long list... I'm kind of picky. But my two top offenders are Spongebob Squarepants (no redeeming value to that show) and Curious George (George always wins, never has consequences for his actions, and breaks all the rules all the time).

As long as it's a show made for preschool aged children I'm not too picky about it.

I'm sort of picky about which shows my dd is allowed to watch. Caillou is a definite NO. He is so whiney and he always seems to get his way. I can't think of any other specific names of shows as I don't have the TV on.

I'm just glad my dd is not really into TV shows. Although I do let her watch shows from my childhood. (Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry)

I keep the kids' TV on the Sprout channel because I'm okay with the shows on there. I don't allow them to watch things like Sponge Bob, shows from my childhoood, like Bugs Bunny (now realizing the violence), etc. Maybe when they're older I'll let them watch more. Right now they're still youngsters, so it's Sprout, PBS, or maybe some of the Nick Jr. or whatever shows, like Doc McStuffins or Mickey Mouse Club House.
