We don't have our t.v. on very often, maybe an hour or two a day total (often in the evenings to watch the news; sometimes we catch a little Judy so we can laugh at the idiots). When we do turn it on for Andrew, we only let him watch PBS Kids. Why? Because I think a lot of the cartoons (Cartoon Network shows and Spongebob-type crap) are stupid and pointless and they don't really teach anything. It's like slapstick stupid crack for kids! Also, we don't have cable. We just have an antenna on our roof to pick up the local hi-def channels (you should try it, really -- we get two CBS staions, two NBC stations, two ABC stations, Fox, three (!!!) PBS stations, and the weird churchy channel which I program out of the scanner).
This morning, the husband and I were discussing the shows on PBS and DH likes all of them except Dinosaur Train (I agree -- it's kind-of annoying and the shows seem redundant). DH went on to say that he likes Super Why, Curious George, Clifford, Arthur, and Martha Speaks (this one is his most favorite). So yeah, pretty much all of them. :) At least my husband is learning while at home with the kids!
What are your favorite programs for kids?
