Children's television content too vulgar, bring back the old standards

Have you seen any of your old favorite cartoon channels lately?
For example, have you by chance taken a look at Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon?
In my opinion, these channels have seriously gone off the deep end.
Compared to the shows back in my younger days, the shows now are somewhat vulgar. I remember the days when it was a television sin to use the word suck on T.V.
For example, this sucks, your outfit sucks or other usage in that context was inappropriate.
Now, using phrases like that has become commonplace.
Can you remember the show “Johnny Bravo?” That show was in some way vulgar, but it was a very low level in vulgarity.
Johnny was a huge flirt in every sense of the word. Though he hit on every grown woman in his sights, he never actually got a chance to be in a relationship with them nor even got a kiss from them.
But when it comes to shows that are on now, they make out, date and even cuddle.
I remember the first time I saw Cartoon Network’s show, “Adventure Time.”
Within the first 10 minutes I noticed that the show made at least two sexual innuendoes.
At first, I honestly thought that it was funny, but after assaying the situation for a while, I thought that the show was very inappropriate for kids of a younger age.
Sure they may not understand what it means now, but who’s to say that they won’t learn?
Many people hadn’t paid any attention to the fact that adult swim comes on at a much earlier time than it used to.
I remember staying up until 12:00 a.m. just to watch Inuyasha or Case Closed because it was on adult swim. That was quite an accomplishment for an 8 to 10 year old.
But now adult swim has been pushed forward, so now it comes on at 9:00 p.m. which is a time that just about anyone can stay up for, before feeling slightly sleepy.
Before long, this change in what television stations would allow will begin to affect children’s shows as well.
Next thing you know, instead of Dora asking, “Do you see the mountain?” she’s going to ask “Do you see the damn mountain.”
And whenever poor little Swiper comes on the scene, the chant will be, “Swiper, no f**king swiping” in which Swiper will respond with a “goddamn.”
Why can’t we go back to the way it used to be?
