Can We Fix It…Yes You Bloody Well Can!
I captured the attached picture from the intro to a feature length “Bob the Builder” episode (Race to the Finish) that my 3 year old son was watching earlier today. Although it is lovely to see the early introduction of his highness to today’s younger generation, surely it would have been much more educational (and appropriate) to have opened this toddlers film with his highness resting on some of his more natural haunts…such as a steaming pile of dung, or a rotting corpse!
How can we possibly expect the youngsters of today, to learn about the finer things in life, if the directors/animators of toddler programs (such as “Bob, the Builder”) continue to get the essential facts in life (such as this) completely wrong? Simply unacceptable…
