I only let my kids watch PBS, Sprout, Disney Jr, and Nick Jr. There's also a channel called Smile of a Child which is a Christian station that plays Bible cartoons and a few other things. Some cartoons nowadays are awful. I HATE spongebob and Phineas and Ferb. There are a few select shows that I'll let my  5 yr old watch on Nick.  but once those 2 come on, I change it. I'd rather my children watch educational or edifying tv than that crap. I don't want them watching shows that are suppose to be for kids but use words or phrases such as "shut up" "stupid" "moron" "idiot" "son of a" and so forth. That's not programing for kids.

Not all cartoons are for kids.  You should always make sure its a "kids" show before you let them watch it.  I also recomment pbs sprout, nick jr and disney.  At least those channels are clean!

Adventure time is a great cartoon. Either for older kids or for kids who have been raised like ours, in a family where people have potty mouths (not the kids), and jokes have innuendos. People just have different senses of humor. My kids never wanted to watch sesame street or barney when they were little (thankfully lol). Everyone is different. And by the waay, they don't say bad words. Just things like, "what the flip!"

I've never heard of that show, but I can't believe they would use bad words. Wow!
