  1. My nephew loves paw patrol tio and it drives hid mother a little crazy because all the adults in the show are shown as incompetent. I think they’re trying to switch him over to a different truck themed show?

    This was adorable.

    • That is true, but there are only two adults that are totally incompetent, who they use over and over again. Mayors in kids shows are always total morons.

      Was it Blaze or Chuck? Chuck has an annoying theme song, but Capt hates Blaze because they win literally every time. They never deal with any problems—just the incompetent bad guys.

      Highly recommend PJ Masks, Sofia the First, and MLP:FIM (which I’m sure you have at least secondhand experience with). They all are kid-centric, and each story is about being a better friend. The characters make mistakes and learn from them and grow.

      Contrast this with Mike the Knight, who is much like Caillou in that he is freaking annoying and a spoiled brat who doesn’t seem to care about anyone else. I also take issue with Curious George. He’s NOT A MONKEY, and he faces ZERO consequences.
