Why is Adult Swim shows on the Cartoon Network?
Posted by Concerned Grandmother on 03/24/2010
Why is a show like Robot Chicken aired on the Cartoon Network? It is a channel for children and I really do not care about the time that the show airs. I don't have anything against the show itself but why air on a kids channel? I heard one of the episodes and could not believe this was on a cartoon channel, this is not for children.

Robot Chicken, as well as all "ADULT" Swim shows, are cartoons. Cartoon Network = Cartoons. They never labeled themselves as a kid network. Adult Swim if I remember, starts at 11:30 PM on Sunday nights. The start time is very relevant even though you dismissed it. Anyone up that late on a Sunday theoretically should be old enough to watch CN and/or should be being supervised on what programming is on the telly. There are far worse things they could find on that time of night than Cartoons made for teens/adults.

Haven't seen the show, but now you've intrigued me enough to seek it out.
Posted by memoryx57 on 2010-03-24:
I have to agree...times have changed since the days of Mighty Mouse and Captain Kangaroo !! ( I'm telling my age ) If I were you I'd at least send the network an email explaining your concerns. Probably won't do much good but at least you'll know you tried.

Cartoon Network is not a kids' channel. Nick Jr., Discovery Kids, and Boomerang are examples of kids' channels.
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-03-24:
I agree that 'Robot Chicken' is not for children but there's a lot of stuff on cartoon network that's not for children. I've never considered cartoon network to be children's programming. On my cable we got a dozen or so channels devoted to children's programming. Perhaps changing the channel to something like Noggin, PBS Kids or Toon Disney could fulfill the kiddo 'toon' need. Good luck!

Great points Slim and may I ask the OP what her take is on "Family Guy" or "American Dad?" They come on around dinner time and are nearly over the top as "Robot Chicken".


Posted by azspots on 2010-03-24:
Let's see..."ADULT swim" would be your first clue it may not be age appropriate for children. Your 2nd clue is at the start of the show there is a disclaimer that it may not be appropriate.
Posted by PepperElf on 2010-03-24:
good points. just because they have "cartoon" in the name does not mean "kiddy tv"

heck i lived in japan for a while... some of the "cartoons" (anime) there are pretty wild. heck on the navy base you had to be over 18 to buy any japanese made cartoons from the NEX.
Posted by Venice09 on 2010-03-24:
It's a mistake to think the word cartoon equals kids, even though many parents assume it does. Anime is a good example, Pepper.

Family Guy is a cartoon on in the early evening, and that show makes me cringe (with an occasional laugh).
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-03-24:
Exactly, Venice.
Posted by Critical_level2 on 2010-03-24:
I fully agree about anime. I have one called M.D. Geist. IT is one of the most violent and bloody cartoons I have ever seen. Another cartoon that is not for children is the movie "Heavy Metal". Too much adult content for children.
Posted by Hayato on 2010-03-24:
This complaint is about eight years too late. Adult Swim has been airing since the early 00's, and is itself a separate channel from Cartoon Network. Therefore, they show programming for an adult audience. There is an disclaimer at the beginning of each show stating that they broadcast television not intended for children.
Posted by Ytropious on 2010-03-25:
Robot Chicken never airs before midnight it seems, most CHILDREN are asleep by then. Also if the name ADULT swim didn't give it away, it is intended for adults, or rather those 18+. A cartoon channel is allowed to have an adult block, and it's on when kids are not supposed to be watching anyway.
Posted by Concerned Grandmother on 2010-03-26:
I Thank all of you for your feedback, but in my city this shows airs between 10-11:00pm nightly. My 7-yr old granddaughter is in bed and should be asleep with the tv off but sometimes she gets back up and turn it on. Her cable box is programmed for kids channels only and the Cartoon Network is on the list. She does not watch FAMILY GUY or AMERICAN DAD because I am aware of those shows and they do not air on "TOON" channel. For the record, a 7-yr old will not understand the word ADULT..Thanks again...
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-03-26:
Unhook the cable or deprogram that channel at bedtime.
Posted by Venice09 on 2010-03-26:
Concerned Grandmother, thanks for the explanation. I can see where a seven year old might turn the television on when they're supposed to be sleeping. But the problem is that most programming at that hour is not appropriate for children, regardless of the station, and that's where the adult comes in. The adult is the one responsible for monitoring what a child is watching on television, even late at night. The networks can't be expected to do that. They provide a disclaimer, and that should be enough. I also think a seven year old does know the meaning of the word adult. Maybe you should speak to your granddaughter about not watching television programs that are advised for adult viewing and not for children. I'm sure she knows the difference.
Posted by Skye on 2010-03-26:
I love Robot Chicken, but it's definately not for children. I watch it on Adult swim, on On Demand.

It's crazy that its on the cartoon network in some cities.
Posted by RedDazes on 2010-03-27:
As others before me have mentioned, Cartoon Network has never claimed to be purely a childrens' network. They play cartoons. Any cartoons will do. Also the whole Adult Swim program has warnings before every single show and after all the commercial breaks. They know it isn't suitable for young children and they tell you that multiple times.
Posted by GenuineNerd on 2010-03-27:
Even cartoons that were once shown in movie theaters and on TV dealt with themes that were over the heads of young children, including classics such as the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes, Rocky and Bullwinkle, and The Flintstones to name a few. Adult themes and storylines are nothing new to cartoons. For crying out loud, even Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble once did commercials for Winston cigarettes and Alka-Seltzer.
Posted by kesherfy on 2010-04-13:
Here's the thing....No problem with Cartoon Network airing cartoons specifically for adults. No problem with it being during a specific time block that children do not normally watch cartoons (10pm - 6am). No problem with the disclaimer. HUGE problem with them airing during hours where kids would most likely be watching cartoons....7 am. If you set aside a specific block of time and advertise that it will be shown only during those time slots so as to NOT impact children....stick to it. My child turned the television to Cartoon Network and witnessed perhaps the most inappropriate 30 seconds of television before I was able to get to the remote and change the channel. It's not too much to expect, as a parent, that networks that the appropriate cautions that they themselves have agreed to....but because they will not, my family will no longer be counted in Cartoon Networks ratings as viewers of ANY of their shows.

If your kids are to young to watch adult swim they shouldnt be up late enough to watch adult swim.
Posted by Sara on 2013-06-22:
I totally agree! NOT APROPRIATE FOR A CHILDRENS NETWORK AT ALL! Yesterday night I caught my 17 year old son watching a show called King of the Hill, I thought nothing of it and reminded him that it was bedtime soon, but then I heard the word"ass"! WHO SAYS THE WORD ASS IN CHILDRENS PROGRAMMING!!!!!! I quickly turned the TV off and sent him to bed, and grounded him the next morning for watching a bad show. I don't need my teenage boy to be learning that language! LONG LIVE THE PARENTS TELEVISION COUNCIL!!!!
Posted by Gurlygurl2000 on 2013-06-24:
Thx Sara. I don't think my 14 year old will be watching KOTH anymore, now that I'm aware of the STRONG LAnguage
Posted by Guyman on 2013-06-25:
Since when do u have a 17 year old with a 9pm bedtime? A child of that age would be in 11th or 12th grade, and trust me if he's never heard the word ass before, then u must be strict. Learn to be cool and not overprotective
Posted by Sara on 2013-06-25:
I caught him watching this DVD last night called clone high, which we bought him on our trip to Toronto. I was appaled by the use of sexual themes. The rating was 14A but I don't think it's appropriate for a 17 year old let alone 14 year old. WE now own the DVD.
Posted by Tim Winter on 2013-08-11:
I would email the FCC on such matter, and complain that their programs contain adult content on a supposed children's channel because indecency is unamerican.
Posted by LoL123 on 2013-08-20:
Cartoon Network is for kids and should not be on a kids channel
Posted by anon on 2013-09-04:
well the problem here with Sara seems to be that she's overbearing. 17 and 14 are are plenty old enough and if you've seen adult swims programming most of it has a tv-14 rating.

Although for me it's never really been about age but the kid being mature enough to to know not to copy the actions, and some people mature faster than others, age is just a number when you think about maturity wise because adults can make bad decisions also.

We can't baby our children forever especially at 17, in one year he would legally be an adult and trust me it's not some big magical change 17 and 18 aren't really all that different
Posted by raindown on 2013-10-11:
Some of you people are wrong! They shouldnt show kids cartoons on these stations and turn around and play perverted shows on the same station, i dont care what time it it! Tomorrow on Dish Network...Cartoon Network, ToonW is playing ... Filthy Sexy Teens @ 6:45AM !!! My daughters are up by then! And this is not a cartoon!
Posted by Kenny on 2013-10-14:
Actually "raindown", filthy sexy teens is not a perverted show. It is a show about a teen boy going to live with a family of wealthy fashion designers and is a new show on adult swim. The name was just given to be humorous as the content is geared towards mature teen/adult audiences. Also just to prove my point to you it isn't even rated TV-MA, it was rated TV-14 with no sub ratings. But I do agree it should've aired before 6:45

Cartoon Network Complaints
Posted by Tigershark1800 on 11/26/2013
MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN -- Okay, so some parents don't like their children Cartoon Network. That is so stupid! First of all. .. for years all sorts of "children channels" have had bad content and still to this day. .. it still has bad content including: Disney XD, Nickolodeon, and the only children friendly channel (that I have found, is QUBO. .. ! So stop talking about Cartoon Network and talk about all the channels! Also don't try to shut these down because what are your children going to watch then? So just leave that at that. ..

Bring Back Retro Cartoons
Posted by Writer85 on 01/24/2013
I remember when I was a kid. I looked forward to getting cable. Cartoon Network had a lot of variety. There were fun cartoons from other decades. Over the years, they put a lot of emphasis on new cartoons and stopped being an all ages channel. Adult Swim was never meant to be on Cartoon Network. The new cartoons they show for kids are too graphic. Kids need to watch retro cartoons instead.

While I'm a big fan of the traditional Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse, etc., I know that they're going to put on cartoons that give them higher ratings (and thus more ad money) at certain times. I do make it a point to tune into Looney Tunes and Tom & Jerry when the opportunity presents itself. I wish they had more classics, but I doubt that's going to happen. I think I'll check out Boomerang like Tezrien suggested!
Posted by JAKFK on 2013-02-02:
Life sure is funny. Every generation says the same thing about the next. As much as we always swore we'd never be like our parents when we grew up, we are EXACTLY like them. We find ourselves saying, "Boy oh boy, they sure don't make music like they used to"...or cars, television shows, movies, and in this case, cartoons. If anything, I believe "we" have changed more than the cartoons have.

The cartoon (MAD)
Posted by Ethan and kaden on 01/17/2011
I was watching cartoons with my 3 year old son him and his brother which is 7 was watching MAD but at that time I had no idea what it was about, but anyway when I saw what my children have been watching on cartoon network (MAD) it is not appropriate for any child to be watching it should be on late with adult swim all they were doing was making fun of everything and doing completly rude things like throwing pimples on people that is so groose, from this day on my kids will not ever be watching this channel which I have already blocked on my t. v I stoped them befor from watching the movie Fred for the same reason, cartoons is suppose to be for kids not this, I will never purchase any toys or anything from cartoon network ever again so I guess you have lost another $ from this parent so I suggest that this show be taken off t. v for good or improve it in someway or another because I would guess I'm not the only parent out here that feels the same way.... Thanks Ashley

this is why you as the adult determine what is appropiate for your children to view.
Posted by jktshff1 on 2011-01-17:
No bashing intended but "but at that time I had no idea what it was about" says alot. My grandson wanted to listen to a rap or hip hop station on my sirrus while he was scanning it, when I picked him up from school. I told him no, not until I listen to it to see what's on...needless to say, I pick him up the next day and told him he can't listen to that station because of the language. I did my homework as any responsible adult should before they let a minor do ANYTHING.
Posted by Anonymous on 2011-01-17:
Yes, I agree. You do need to find an appropriate channel for your child to watch. If I'm not sure, then I'd sit down for a few minutes and watch it with them. You did do the right thing in blocking it though. That's a great feature :)
Posted by MRM on 2011-01-17:
The only channels that are appropriate for the kids are Nickelodean and Disney Channel.

Newsflash, what we think is stupid and gross kids love. Last time I checked you can't actually "throw pimples" on people so what are you worried about. Let them be kids and stop caring so much about a CARTOON.

Found an episode on youtube:

Reminds me of a show called VH1 Illustrated. Same concept with celebrity face cut outs and pop culture references...but with more poop and fart jokes. Definitely for kids.

OMFG near the end there was a CSI Miami (meets iCarly) reference. I'm pretty sure kids won't even get that but I thoroughly enjoyed it. This show is going on my DVR.
Posted by GenuineNerd on 2011-01-17:
Boomerang (also a Cartoon Network channel) has a lot of the old 1960's and 1970's cartoons that I grew up with, including such classics as Scooby-Doo, Yogi Bear, The Flintstones, and Tom & Jerry. That would be a more appropriate channel than Cartoon network. Only thing is, not all cable systems carry Boomerang.
Posted by Anonymous on 2011-01-18:
I don't let my kids watch the stuff on Cartoon Network...I have seen some of it, for example Robot Chicken or whatever it is called. Cartoon Network is certainly not just for kids, that's for sure! And even though they air the Adult Swim stuff at night, I still don't approve of some of the day time shows.

Stuff that is labeled for kids and family is not always family friendly, either. My son is 3 and recently, when he gets mad, he will make these awful chocking/gagging noises and spit. I could not figure out for the life of me where he learned it, until I sat down and watch the Spiderwick Chronicles with him (kids/family movie that ABC family was airing). There was a character on there who did that. Then you have Woody from Toy Story calling Buzz a stupid idiot. Lovely...and you wonder why your 3 year old calls you a stupid idiot a week later. You really have to screen what your kids are going to watch, especially since they are like sponges and soak up anything they hear and see.
Posted by Anonymous on 2011-01-18:

I haven't seen this show, but it sounds like it's a spinoff from "Mad Magazine" maybe? If so, probably wouldn't be appropriate for a 3 and 7 year old.

Political Garbage
Posted by Allrightalready on 02/11/2010
I think it's really sad and low for people with a political agenda to infuse it into a children's cartoon. I was watching an episode with my 5 year old son about how people that don't believe in global warming are idiots and think the world must be flat if the don't agree. WOW is all I have to say. You just lost all money I would have invested in your toys, and ratings from watching your show. It just shows that you aren't interested in making quality TV for kids but pushing your own political agenda. Nice try but not in my home. I hope you figure it out or get new writers.

Ugh!

Did they really say people who don't believe in global warming are idiots? I'm not sure that I can buy that a cartoon said that.

BTW, I'll bet the polar bears who are dying off are wondering why the artic ice is melting. But that's an argument for a different day.
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-02-11:
"about how people that don't believe in global warming are idiots and think the world must be flat if the don't agree."

Somehow I highly doubt they would say exactly that in a children's cartoon. That might be what the OP interpreted them as saying. And that's all it is, an interpretation... of a cartoon's "message".
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-02-11:
Hannah, The world is full of liberals like my good friend goduke. We the right-thinking right-minded people of the world just got to accept it. They say ignorance is bliss like it's a bad thing but I say what's better than being blissful happy? Sure beats being worried all the time I tell ya what. Now for a truly blissful enriching experience I say start your day off by setting your children in front of 'The Fox and Friends'. What better influence is there than the wit of the wholesome Steve 'Juicy' Doocy, the innocence of the interchangeable blond chick and the bravado of the brown hair guy who isn't Steve Doocy. I love these people because unlike my buddy goduke they don't let the facts get in the way of their beliefs. And in the end it is beliefs, our beliefs, that make our children whole.

You did the right thing exposing this show on my3cents. I wish you well!
Posted by goduke on 2010-02-11:
So the polar bears aren't dying?

BTW, I'm not a liberal. Bad assumption, Stew. And while I respect your opinions a lot, labeling folks to dismiss them is pretty wrong. I don't have to be a liberal to be concerned that continually dumping toxins into our environment is a bad thing. Did you know that if you took an average whale out of the ocean and put it on land, it would be declared a toxic waste dump because of what's been absorbed into it's fat layer? That can't be good.

Like goduke, I'd be interested to hear if they actually called non-believers "idiots".

Regarless of your stance on global warming, it has definitely become a political issue. That's a shame. And since the jury is still out on something that takes more than a few years to figure out, it's sad that a cartoon would get involved. I heard of a situation the other day where a school system flunked a child that wrote a report that disputed global warming. They didn't grade him on how well he researched or wrote his essay. They flunked him flat out because he disagreed with the theory. That's pretty sad.

I'm not a scientist. I've watched this argument pretty closely and I've tried to stay open-minded. I remember being scared as a kid about all of our environmental and military issues. I guess it served a good purpose to make us aware of things at an early age. But most children just take on the opinion that their parents share. In the case of Global Warming, it's probably wrong for cartoons to inject an opinion.
Posted by goduke on 2010-02-11:
I, myself, kind of enjoyed Captain Planet. But I tend to be an environmentalist.

One of Michael Crichton's books took task with global warming. It was a pretty good exposition on the topic and the iffiness of the science. Dean Koontz took on evolution in his latest. Pretty good read.
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-02-11:
I agree 100% sheriff. It's like the scientists who claim the earth is over a billion years old and we are suppose to take that as fact even though us right-minded people know the Earth is in fact no older than 10,000 years. Honestly, how do scientists know? Where they here a billion years ago? Why should I take their word for it when I FEEL like I'm right. Same way with global warming. Excuse me anybody notice the record snow falls this year? Sure the scientists will say global warming is about mean temperature change for the planet as a whole and not just selected parts of the country but what else are they gonna say when the NYC kids got a snow day for only the third time in years.

I don't need highly educated people who devoted their lives to a particular study to chime in on this climate change debate when good honest Americans like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity have already put this issue to rest and they didn't need 'SCIENCE' on their side. They did it with nothing but their mouths. And I respect that.
Posted by goduke on 2010-02-11:
The global warming theory, as a theory, isn't just about the climate getting warmer, but also about how that average higher temperature causes more violent weather patterns. Such as blizzards and monsoon rain.

eh global warming shmarming


i'm reminded of listening to a talk show where they interviewed a man who gave up his think tank job cos he was tired of it...

he said that at the think tank it wasn't about using "facts" to support theories
they were instead ordered to take a theory and MAKE the facts support it.


course my other issue with global warming is the whole idea of the "electric car"
cos it's not really a green car if you're burning fuel sources in order to generate the electricity


but that's something that they convienently ignore cos it doesn't fit the theory they want you to follow
Posted by jktshff1 on 2010-02-11:
Anyone at any given time can make the "numbers" or "facts" support their view.
Posted by Ytropious on 2010-02-11:
Pep, you should check out "who killed the electric car", it's a great documentary. True electric plug ins will run off of grid power, or in theory you could install solar panels and power your car from a sun generator. At least off the grid there are alternatives instead of straight fossil fuels.

solar isn't much of an option in the winter here in the north east

seriously it was ... funny but a little sad too. in a nearby city they went solar to save money on the streetlights. great except some days the lights wouldn't turn on. turns out they weren't getting enough sunlight to actually work. they ended up spending even more money to run power lines to the solar lights...

Where Is Naruto!
Posted by Meimechie on 06/03/2009
Hello,

I have waited over 4 months for your station to continue the broadcast of Naruto, on Saturday nights. It is one of my, and my families favorite shows to watch as far as family night.

I understand the fact of waiting on the English dubbed episodes to come out, BUT WHEN I'M GOING ONLINE AND THEY ARE THERE, IT POSES A PROBLEM!

So I have decided to wait another two weeks, if by then your network hasn't continued the broadcast of Naruto. I will boycott your channel, network, website, and anything else with Cartoon Networks name on it.

Thank You,
-Teja

I was wondering that myself. I believe they are done with all of the episodes here in the states, I believe they are waiting for the shippuden to be subbed in English and when that happens Naruto will be replaced with Naruto Shippuden. Season 14 (Neji is on the cover) was released in stores this month, and if I am not mistaken is the second to last season before the shippuden starts.

My familiy, too, was disappointed that Naruto went off the Cartoon Network. As I recall, they did advertise that the 200th or so episode was going to be the last one shown. I was excited when I learned that hulu was going to show the Naruto episodes, but they only went as far as Cartoon Network. Inquiring minds want to know... does Naruto save Sasuke from Orochimaru?

No he does not. If you watch the Shippuden you will see that Naruto does not save him, in fact Sasuke stays with Orochimaru willingly to train so that he can become strong enough to fight his older brother and avenge his clan. That last episode you saw on CN was the last episode of Naruto. Except for a few filler episodes that show Naruto leaving with Ero Sennin to go train.

WASILLA, ALASKA -- Regarding Boondocks:

This cartoonist is clearly an angry black man, and his toons featuring "niggah" (repeated boondock dialogue)is self-defeating to equality.

In fact, has CN Management reviewed Adult Swim lately? Futurama and Family Guy are great, that's the only reason I tune in, but have you people actually watched Boondocks or "Tom goes to the Mayor"? These programs are THE worst programming I have ever seen, there is absolutely zero entertainment value involved in either of these programs.

Another thing that disturbs me is the evident political messages that Adult Swim espouses between commercials - if you are a an admitted Liberal network, then proudly do it. You'll lose a large base of viewers, including myself, but at least you'll be honest - and I think anyone can respect a political position, whether or not they agree with it.

I will honestly say that I have been offended by deliberate political messages on Adult Swim. Right or wrong, I have been.

At 36 I think my attitude towards your programming seems bizarre; it seems to me that I am the old man railing against society - but I have discussed this with other electricians on the job and find that my view is completely normal - it's not just me, Boondocks is a prejudiced program that does nothing to promote equality or promote minorities to equality.

"Can't blame this on the white man!" "Damn, Nigga!"

These are phrases I just heard as I was typing this on
Boondocks. Real nice.

Please, Cartoon Network, show some leadership and stop this racial divisiveness that you are espousing. I allow my children to view your network during the day, and I enjoy catching Futurama and the occasional Family Guy during the weeknights.

I enjoy "Edgy" viewing, but there are limits. Boondocks and the political comments displayed on your Network during Adult Swim are clearly out of line and should be reigned in - not all of your viewers appreciate it.

Thanks,

Richard

You can either write to the Cartoon Network to voice your concern or change the channel. You dont have to torture yourself, watching hateful shows.

The cartoon pokes fun at ALL stereotypes, blacks, whites,asians,hispanics, gangbangers, prostitutes, etc.He uses the N word to show how destructive it is.
Obviously you don't understand what this cartoon is all about. Maybe at age 36 you should try reading some books instead of watching cartoons that you don't understand.

Hey Richard it's call social satire. It's racists if a group claims some sort of immunity from the satirical sword and it is racists if they are given that immunity. I'm in complete agreement with steve101.

Steve...too funny. :)

It's called Adult Swim for a reason. These shows do not target one single race, gender, or orientation. They target all of them. For instance, the show squidbillies makes fun of white trash, the venture brothers has what appears to be a transsexual female villain, on family guy the other night they showed peter smoking a crack pipe when he was trying to quit drinking. I won't even get into the things I've seen on robot chicken. How about on futurama, bender is made out to be a hispanic robot who takes part in organized crimes and binge drinking. This stuff is made to be humorous. And it is. I hear people of color calling each other the N word all the time. Do I approve of it, no, but they have the right to say and call each other what ever they want. If a white person says it, well than that's considered a racial slur. Where's the logic in that? What it all boils down to, is that it is a TV program targeted specifically for adults, hence the name Adult Swim. If you do not like the programming that you see, find something else to watch. Or as Steve so eloquently put it, read a book. Preferably one that will teach you the meaning of satire.

Don't watch it. Why is that so hard?
Posted by lobo65 on 2007-10-16:
Eh. I don't even watch Cartoon Network any more. Boomerang is my channel of choice. You can't go wrong with Johnny Quest, Space Ghost, The Herculoids, etc.

I was wondering when someone was going to complain about the show.(*rolls eyes*) I am 37 and watch it with my two daughters (16 and 13) and they understand the show better than I do. They actually love the show and it gives me a chance to teach them about it, or they me. I've noticed that they make fun of all races on that show and they don't single out anyone, even my husband likes it, and he is black.

I have to agree with steve101 and if you can't stand it then just turn the channel like every one said. Good luck!

The only thing on Adult Swim, worth watching is:

ROBOT CHICKEN.

Come on, those are freakin cartoons you are complaining about. Don't like it, change the channel. There is already enough censorship from Big Brother.

Loosen up, lifes to short to be so worried and upset about Adult Swim. Just change the channel. Try watching "Something Weird" on, ON DEMAND. That should take your mind off things.
Posted by heaven17 on 2007-10-16:
Skye, I so agree. 'Something Weird' ROCKS.
Posted by Skye on 2007-10-16:
I love those School Scare Films. I also like the Nano shortz, and Ziddio. Lots of undiscovered talent out there.

Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord. That is fact, and another fact is everyone that reads this will remember it while it is happening, and anything nasty or vile that is commented will be revisited on that day as well. So believe it or not, truth wins out in the end, and this is truth. Wake up people and see that their is a God and He loves all of us. God, change everybody's heart that reads this, so on that day they will remember, Amen.

Boondocks is not my type of show. While the animation is top notch and the writing is excellent, i just can't get into the show. My issue with Adult Swim is the shows like Tim and Eric that insult my intellegence. How people can watch that show without getting sick is beyone me.
