Hi, I'm Bo Lumpkin and I've been thinkin'.
Ole R.E. Cline, our couch potato reporter read my article "Learnin' To Read" lamenting the demise of real "Comic Books". He says they ain't all that todays younuns are missin'.
I can remember when Saturday mornings and every afternoon TV was geared to children. There were cartoons, real cartoons, not this Pokemon and Digimon garbage. What's up with all the people having pointed chins and ears. Haven't their artist ever seen normal people.
Network television is almost completely devoid of real cartoons. Theirs are all dragons or characters that look like they were made for Public Broadcasting.
What happened to "Bugs Bunny", "Tom and Jerry", "Popeye" and all the other good stuff. I know you can find some of this on the Cartoon Network sandwiched between the twenty four hour marathons of "Scooby Doo", but why should parents have to buy cable or a satellite for their children to get to watch decent cartoons.
This is America People, we are supposed to own the airwaves. Just because cartoons can be seen on expensive cable and satellite stations does not mean that the major Networks don't have an obligation to provide decent cartoons for the rest of us.
I miss "Yogi Bear" and especially "Boo Boo." I may be a couch potato without cable but that doesn't mean I should be discriminated against. I would sit down and write a letter to the FCC and complain about the situation but that might make me miss the next infomercial on my favorite network.
I'm R.E. Cline with the Couch Potato Report.
