I love this show and im thirteen. BUT I first saw it at a neighbors house and the kids were 8 and older. its beyond hilarious. I love that its artsy, simple yet complex, creative, has a good meaning, and is humorous! Im in 2 honors classes (the max for a kid my age) and does that mean that only because of that i can watch this? NO! This show is great and one of my favorites. PARENTS STOP AND THINK FOR A MOMENT:- 5th graders are watching Jersey Shore. -most songs use vulgar language and references... little do YOU know, your kids have heard almost every single one of them. - if your kid owns an ipod> itunes> top 10, 100, 200?> 95+% of all those songs have references, language and violence. Think your kids don’t know them? Ask. You’ll be surprised. Adventure Time is beyond appropriate because its easy to understand but is yet complex in many ways. Some of the jokes, your kids may not get. But honestly, they know more than you think. Watch a few episodes if your kid is watching it... then at dinner ask what “the land of Ooo means to them” or ask why all the characters are so different and unique==== HELLO every person is different in their own and awesome way! The land of Ooo is a portrayal of our world... watch a few and you might even get it. This show has good role models--too many parents assume it doesn’t because they don’t watch the whole episode. The show shows all of the steps to doing things right. -The problem, messing up while trying to fix it, -learning lessons along the way,- resolving the problem in the end. Before you judge... think about the world we live in today. Think about the world your kids live in... they know more than you think! If you try to disguise every word like crap and poo brain then your kids are going to grow up messed up because they have misconceptions about the world they live in. What if your kids don’t learn some of these terms... and something happens because they don’t understand? If your concerned about something in an episode they see... ask them what THEY THINK IT MEANS! Either they’re completely wrong, have an idea, or are right. PLEASE remember this::: Just because they know what something MEANS does NOT mean that they think it is RIGHT!
