    Invader Zim and Adventure Times is meant more for teenagers or older, instead of cancelling everything and anythung, maybe parents can just supervise what their kids watch?

    Glad I never watched Goosebumps during my childhood...because it was never on any of the channels I watched. What I really want to watch is more shows based on R.L. Stine’s books


    Boohbah, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Adventure Time were my child hood!

    Teletubies was super cute and I used to love it. Cow and chicken was pretty funny, weird but funny. The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy was funny and awesome. Can’t people just enjoy shows as they are?

    For me 'Boohbah' looks cute not scary
    And also 'Courage the Cowardly dog' is actually, I heard it's like that the dog died and his owners died too 'cause I mean... They're living in some weird desert, like there is NO WAY that they are alive! And 'Teletubbies' are not scary to me either...

    “School is supposed to be a sanctuary.”
    I’d be neutral for this, actually. Some students would say it’s Dante’s Inferno complete with a “Abandon Hope, Ye Who Enter Here” in the front, but who’s to say.

    Ren and Stimpy was simply considered an adult cartoon where I'm from. As far as I was concerned, it wasn't meant for kids. My dad watched it.
