The Lyrics

Sometimes I babysit for friends and some of the new cartoons are way beyond bizarre, especially on Cartoon Network! Take "Adventure Time" and "Uncle Grandpa" as examples. Seems like the writers are on crack. These cartoons teach no morals and have no reason. Even fun seems remote to any adult viewer. I had to explain HOW there could be an Uncle Grandpa biologically to a kid and it freaked me out. YES, it is possible for a paternal or maternal grandfather to marry the opposite familie's sister or brother of sibling that has a child... but that's disturbing! Uncle is just an affectionate term that can be applied to a close friend of any family and grandpa is generic for old age. Seems the kids were more confused than me. TOON is bizarre!!!
What’s is TOON lesson?
“Adventure Time” has many freaky friends
And “Uncle Grandpa” requires crack to make sense
Makes you wonder WTF’s on television!

What’s is TOON lesson?
Goin’ places way beyond weird zen
Seein’ things from a warped imagination
Makes you wonder WTF’s on television!

What’s is TOON lesson?
What happened to “Looney Tunes” with Bugs & Daffy
And the Superfriends?
Back in the day when cartoons were fun that way
But today, it’s psychedelic trends… (got the kids trippin’)

“Adventure Time” has many freaky friends
And “Uncle Grandpa” requires crack to make sense
Makes you wonder WTF’s on television!

Never seen "Uncle Grandpa" but "Adventure Time" is amazing. I'm a huge fan of it.

"Adventure Time" looks like the animators went on a color spree! Some of the characters look like they come from E European or Russian animation, if you've ever seen any of that! And if you get the chance watch the Cartoon Network for "Uncle Grandpa" which is also very bizarre indeed. The character looks like a stereotypical Ocktoberfest German man with beard and moustache that is a pin-head with a twirly top cap whose favorite saying is "Good Morning!" UG has three companions who travel with him in his TARDIS-like RV: Pizza Steve the talking slice of pizza with cool shades, Mr. Gus who is the creature from the black lagoon type (who talks black and is the one with common sense), and a flying tiger that likes ice cream and has rainbow gas coming out of its butt to fly! There is also an attached short of "Beary Nice and Hot Dog Person" which is sadistic as BN always gets HDP into terrible situations. But what are you gonna do when young children wanna watch this stuff 24/7???

I'm personally a fan of "The Regular Show" where it's anything but regular. Gotta love how a random thing you do everyday can trigger something so catastrophic where most of them was Rigby's fault.

Sorry Max, I forgot about "The Regular Show" too on TOON! The kids got me to watch AT and UG and just those two are confusing! My description of UG was a bit off too. Was forced to watch 5 eps straight but after watching a few more on Xfintiy by myself I need to make a few corrections. Uncle Grandpa does not have a beard (came from the Xmas promotions), is not a pinhead (but has a rising permanent bump on his head that is covered by a twirly cap), and apparently his pal Mr. Gus is supposed to be a dinosaur(?). The female flying tiger is still a mystery to me. The others call her "Girl" most of the time. And forgot to mention that UG's lap belt is a talking one too; hence, another character. Another addition is the frequent "Slice of Life" minis with Pizza Steve. I'm starting to warm to UG but AT is way too colorful and weird for me- Jake and Finn, the Ice King, Candy Kingdom, Rainacorn (?), etc... creep the hell out of me. One other show on Sprout is "Lazy Town" made in Iceland with a creepy older superhero male with a weird moustache that gets a young girl and puppet friends to exercise. The girl sings wonderfully and the show is simple with morals and values, but the old guy with the pre-teen dancing and "playing" together smacks of pedophile love of children. I know that's harsh and everyone in Iceland loves Max S... but seeing a grown man play with a young girl who has affection for him and wears all-pink sends an underlying sexual message. Kinda like nieces that love to sit in their uncles' laps and "play." It's OK up until maybe age 7-9 and then gets awkward before becoming creepy. Fortunately, AT and UG are nothing like that and are better IMHO than those old "Barney" and "Teletubbies" shows that created controversy. The only new stuff that freaks me out is this whole "Bronie" thing with guys and female horses. My own local comic store carries toys and materials for "My Little Pony" and lots of guys buy that stuff. I know they will claim it's all about the animation upgrade and values, but some go further and bring in pics of themselves with a real female pony and slapping its ass! Phil Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" got it wrong when he said being homosexual can lead to bestiality as most of those types are perverted heterosexuals. He could have talked about the Bronies ;-)

MLP is alright, just one of those shows that I would watch if there's nothing else better to watch on TV, the people you're referring to at the end are called "cloppers", the more extreme branch of bronies. For a small summary, just look up a video animation by SpeedoSausage on YouTube titled "CLOPPING.MOV" and you'll get the idea.

Thnx Max for the info, learned something new today. Perhaps a clopper parody in the future???

It should happen.

Uncle Grandpa says "Good Morning!" and will let you drive the RV for 555 miles

My favorite Chinese restaurant often has kids cartoons playing on the TV. The quality of the illustrations is declining rapidly. Never heard about "Bronies" before. As if the world wasn't already disturbing enough. Another image I can't erase from my brain.
