Squig and I were watching Caillou this morning. Caillou is a Canadian kid’s show that teaches children that sharing is important, and teaches parents that their child is nowhere near as totally fucking annoying as he could be.
Anyway, at one point I got up from the couch and used the bathroom. When I returned a few minutes later, this was frozen on the screen:
Huh. I mean, I’m all for updating these children’s shows to make them palatable to a modern audience, but that’s a little extreme.
On the other hand, this form of conflict resolution seems considerably more efficient than any I’ve seen promoted by PBS in the past.
