Lewis Black: The Flintstones is not a documentary.

A slightly longer version of the clip that used to be here.

@Andrew, Canada is only the lesser of two evils. Although, I do live in the bible belt of Canada, so I can't speak for the rest of it.

It's almost impossible to migrate to Norway.

So funny and true Soulf2. Just as the increase in dieting ads & campaigns are causing an increase in obesity, so does the increase in religious propaganda cause more hatred and violence. I think everyone should be free to choose what they do or don't believe in, but can't more people see that 'religion' causes hate and intolerance?

Hell yeah.  Phineas & Ferb has some of the most advanced vocabulary of any show on TV, period.  "I call it my Buoyancy Operated Aquatic Transport, or 'Bo-At' for short."  They also have the rare writing ability of knowing how long to drive a running joke into the ground, and then they ... drop the joke and find new ones!  What a concept!

 

Dunno about your perspective on video games versus TV shows, though.  There's something about the interactive nature of video games that helps add to the desensitizing effect and the adoption of negative behaviors, in minds that aren't morally solidified.  Hell, I know some 30-somethings whom I don't think are mature enough to handle violent video games.

 

I think the thing with brilliant kids and clueless adults started with Captain Planet and a few of the early Nickelodeon shows.  It always annoyed the hell out of me, even when I was a kid, although the Nickelodeon shows weren't as bad back then.  No, 12 year-olds are not endowed with special knowledge and understanding of the world.  Most of them are horribly gullible to outside influence and haven't learned to rationally judge what's likely to be true.  They're almost as bad as Fox News viewers.

@Andrew (and sorry all for being OT). No one is casting aspersions on anyone; on the contrary, I'm suggesting that (certainly outside of US culture which I am not familiar with) Disney channel produces a lot of live action shows which conform to a commercial formula. This formula rarely reflects "real life" and teens are often portrayed as being smarter than the adults around them.

 

Certainly, they are often shown as being more mature than a person of that age would be in reality. Many Disney child stars move into later life as rich train wrecks; discarded like trash. Of course, the damage is already done to the viewers long before.

 

In small amounts, this is harmless, but with Disney it's hour after hour of the stuff.

 

Cartoons, particularly the more abstract ones such as Spongebob and Phineas & Ferb, are different. Now, if no on else minds I'll move this to a proper debate on Origins...

With the Disney thing I got traumatized by the "It's a Small World" song when I was a kid. I even made up my own lyrics:

 

It's a world of hatred, a world of fear.

It's a world of sudden death, my dear.

It's abundantly clear, that no one cares.

It's a small world after all.

 

It's a small world after all.

Makes it easier to nuke it all.

It's a small world after all.

It's a small small world.

 

I wouldn't cast aspersions onto those who watch shows for younger kids. I still watch a fair amount of Top Cat when given the chance.
