Okay...when I was a kid, I really loved cartoons. I was totally addicted. I ALWAYS preferred animation to "real people." I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I was seriously into cartoons through puberty--although I'd learned to enjoy "real people" shows too.
Anyway, today when I was sitting with the kids at Kristi and Curtis' hotel, Haley and I were watching this bizarre show on CARTOON NETWORK called CHOWDER. The volume was really low (Lexi was still sleeping), so I didn't know what the odd little characters were saying. But I could see them barfing green slime all over each other, and one of the little fairy creatures--it had boobs, so I assume it was female--kept having one horrible temper tantrum after another. I kept saying, "This is disgusting." Then Haley picked up the mantra and was saying, "Yuck, that's disgusting." THEN I googled it and learned that it's been getting all these amazing reviews, hailing it as one of the greatest cartoons ever put on the air. I was dumbfounded to read this.
Am I just an old geezer who doesn't "get it," or is it a really gross show? Is grossness the point of it? You young parents--please educate me.
Here's a clip I found so you uninitiated can see what I'm talking about. I don't think there's any green barfing on this clip, however. That was really something to behold. (The ill-tempered little fairy isn't on the clip, so you're going to miss her EXTREMELY odd character.)
