    Well Family Guy and the Simpsons aren't exactly kids cartoons :D

    I am still a fan of cartoons, but today's cartoons and "shows for kids" are garbage. It's all about "comedy" and there really is no real good storyline to any cartoons or shows out there (Legend of Korra is an exception, it's an excellent cartoon). Then again as kids I didn't watch cartoons for morals, but shows like Hey Arnold do pop into mind and there are alot of life lessons in there really. Shows had deeper hidden meanings back then, now it's all about "dumb comedy".

    Well i remember like the original tmnt cartoon where they would do some little thing like say no to drugs and dont talk to strangers and so on i mean transformers and power rangers and other kid shows in the late 80s and early nineties mostly had a moral to them or a little special message at the end of the show whatever happened to that?

    "stupid comedy" has taken over hollywood. TV shows have suffered and kids shows are pretty weak. There has only been one new cartoon that I found worth while and thoroughly enjoy, Legend of Korra. Cartoons like Regular Show are pretty dumb to me. Was watching Disney Channel with my nephew and nieces, some of the shows have little lessons in them still at least. Not going to deny I enjoy an episode of Phineas and Ferb every once in awhile:p

    And the messages at the end of shows doesn't exist anymore. Maybe if there's some national tragedy or awareness thing going on there may be a message, but it's very rare nowadays.

    They were much better when Tom was trying to kill Jerry, Wiley E. Coyote was trying to kill the Road Runner, Elmer Fudd was trying to kill Bugs Bunny, and Marvin the Martian was trying to kill us all.
