So many questions

We are watching “Butterbean’s Cafe.” Cricket is learning to ride a bike without training wheels. Butterbean, her sister, pushes her. Because Butterbean is a fairy (whose wings are cookies), she flies while she does this. If you can fly why do you even know what a bike is, much less learn to ride? Later Cricket rides with some anthropomorphized animals who I think were cats, but might have been squirrels. Regardless which, wouldn’t their tails get into the spokes?

Ahh, I remember when my kids were little things too. I lucked into them being at that age during the era of Spongebob, Chowder, Kim Possible, Phineas & Ferb, etc. Double bonus, my daughter never cared for Frozen. I do not envy what you lot have to watch with your kids today.

On topic, cats and squirrels both seem to have pretty good control over their tails. I just don't know how saddles would work, as neither animal has a you know... butt.

You've graduated from "things were better in my day" to "things were better in their day"

At any given time there are well written shows (Adventure Time just wrapped up for instance) but so far that's over their heads and about the most irreverent thing we can put on is Peppa Pig

As a parent, I've learned long ago not to try to make sense out of children's shows.

Have you ever had to sit through a Pokemon movie?
You could put your brain out.

No. Thankfully my children aren't really into Pokemon. My son did go through a stretch where he was watching the cartoons for a bit, but I think they were so mind-numbingly weird that he didn't even want to watch them any more.

Those little kids have been enslaving the local fauna and forcing them attack each other for twenty years now.

Just to keep my posts bicycle relevant,

You should spend more time pondering the really important stuff, like why a saddle is mounted on top of a seat post not a saddle post?
