Why I Avoid Some Classic Cartoons Like the Plague

“Mommy you’re a blockhead!” my son happily exclaimed. I immediately knew who was to blame for my son’s insult. Charlie Brown and The Great Pumpkin. Well, technically I was to blame for being foolish enough to download the app and let him watch the special but who knew how foul the language on a classic cartoon could be.


A blogger recently wrote about the issue. He thinks it’s time to retire the beloved special due to the bullying and negative messages. Folks seem outraged at the suggestion and think that parents today coddle their children too much. I disagree.
