kid_icarus: crazyone33: As someone with three under 6 (2 years apart), most of the shows I have sen mentioned are watchable; personally, I would rather get punched in the balls than watch The Fresh Beat Band. That is about the only show I absolutely refuse to let my kids watch. There are very few other shows for their ages that I can't watch.

However, I have yet to see a show for their cousins on Disney (ages 10-15) that doesn't want me to run screaming from the room. They are God-awful and I will gladly put up with Caillou, Max and Ruby, or any of the Disney Jr offerings before I will watch that crap.

I feel your pain...my nephews are in the tween phase, and insist on watching The Suite Life, Wizard of Waverly Place, and a few other similar shows I can't recall the name of off hand. I try to remember that they're kids shows and I probably watched annoying stuff when I was little...but damn, those shows make my brain bleed. What kind of "acting" do you call that?


Not only the acting, but the writing. I mean, it is possible to make shows for that age that are funny (Phineas and Ferb, Spongebob, etc). It is amazing that for an objective observer, the younger kids shows are infinitely more watchable, educational, humorous, and better written than those shows for an older audience. I guess that is why we get Honey Boo Boo and reality shows about guys who (don't) read instruction manuals.

My daughter is in a serious Dora phase at the moment...the only issue I've come up with so far is that i'm trying to teach her colors at the moment and when i asked her what color the block she was holding is, she replied 'ROJO!" which is not exactly incorrect, but we are trying to get the english colors down before we move on to spanish.
Otherwise, i've become able to bear most of the children's programming that we watch...we love sesame street..Jamie is 20 months old and can count to 'twentyteen'.
yo gabba gabba is the weirdest, most trippy show on tv and we love it.

Wow, I thought farkers were smarter than this.

The author claims to be "a professor and scholar of the history of Christianity". Does that mean that he's a Christian? No, you morons!

The article is titled "Swiper, No Swiping!": The Demonology of Dora the Explorer. Does that mean that the author believes in demons and demon possession? No, you morons!

For the morons who didn't read the article but assumed that it was WND-style derp:
"It's not clear whether the creators of Dora the Explorer were thinking about this rich demonological tradition when they created Swiper -- they did not need to. The image of the fox-demon has molded our religious consciousness for centuries."

If you actually read the article and think that the author is some kind of crazy religious nut, you're either a complete moron or functionally illiterate.

My niece was ga-ga for Dora when she was younger. I didn't mind it - it had good messages, wasn't too annoying.

What annoyed me is the blatant gender differentiation Nickelodeon did later. Both the boys and girls in her classes loved Dora. Then they made Dora pink and frilly, and made the "Action-oriented" boy in blue Diego. Dora would go to Diego, but not the reverse. It was blatant and patronizing that a little boy couldn't cheer a female hero.

Sad.

And this guy isn't writing anything that any first-year philosophy student with a younger brother or sister hasn't all ready written in a B- paper in his first semester away at Assmunch State.

Jim_Callahan: I think the fact that you can easily map the plot points and themes of a saturday morning cartoon to Christian mythology is probably more revealing regarding the origins of Christian mythology than it is indicative of anything particularly interesting regarding the cartoon.


Like I said, it would have been a passingly interesting treatise (for all three of us who find such things moderately interesting) on repeating themes and motifs in mythology and folklore. I've seen similar theories in religious studies before. It's not unusual; Joseph Campbell did it already, and much better and more entertainingly.

That this fool thinks there's anything even remotely "demonic" about it is just this year's attempt to create a panic about children's television. methinks.

I've been watching a Korean show about a fox spirit, so I'm getting a kick out of this.

In the show I'm watching, 내 여자친구는 구미호, a fox tricks some loser guy into freeing her from magical captivity, and then she follows him around and forces him to do stuff for her so she won't get mad and eat him. It's quite entertaining.
 
2012-11-30 02:16:51 AM
My three cents: This is a clever and somewhat tongue-in-cheek analysis that so many people have misunderstood it saddens me. Literary analysis is subjective, may always be questioned, dissected, or expanded upon; however, in the comments I see only confused condemnation. Let me discuss the problems with a few examples. "You religious zealots!..." Retort: what has the author said that makes him seem a "religious zealot?" In his analysis, he never claims to know the absolute truth, to preach it, or to link it with any particular religion; rather, he considers established concepts from many diverse cultures and religions in his reading of "Dora." "There is clearly too much thought into such a simple concept." Retort: you could say the same of any critical work, as literary criticism is at its core about giving thought to seemingly simple concepts. Further, the true intention of the author is not up for debate; it is as much the reader's understanding as the author's that imbues a work with its true value. I could write an essay on the topics I'm trying to raise, but I lack the patience. The bottom line is that I am saddened by the idiocy of the authors of the comments and of those who agree with them, and shocked by the quantity of the above. No one seems to get it, and that poses a problem far beyond the scope of this article, as this kind of flawed thinking will extend itself to much more serious debates of religion and literature in culture. If the majority of netizens cannot comprehend an analysis of literary themes in a simple children's cartoon, what hope do they have of ever understanding something as complex as the Bible, or of contributing meaningfully to important cultural debates (abortion, or homosexuality, for example, as two charged items at the intersection of religion and culture). And finally, this comment: "NOT TO SOUND DUMB__-so should we let our children watch it yes or no????___ "Retort: You do sound dumb, and you are dumb, and the fact that you have control over the education of your children is beyond frightening. You know who gets it, though? Commenter "monte." His comment is this: "Bravo. This piece, to me, is what PopMatters is all about. It's got an ostensibly silly premise, and seems readable initially just for its humor, but in fact it becomes quite thought-provoking, as well. I bitterly wish I'd written it. Well done." Congratulations then, monte. You alone seem humanity's saving grace.
 
2012-11-30 02:40:50 AM
Also, You know what? The creators of "Dora" probably made Swiper a fox in the first place because a fox in our culture and mythology is considered sneaky, mischievous, clever, harmful but not evil, a sort of of wily being to watch out for but easily dispatched (an animal, after all). Get it?
Now, why might a fox have obtained such cultural characteristics? Could it be because of eons of mythology relating the fox to a demon? Does the analysis within this article now make sense to the dimwitted among you? No? Well, I tried.
The author is in no way trying to state that "Dora" is evil and anti-Christian. He does not say either that Swiper is somehow meant to trick children into devil-worship. In fact, he seems to imply that if we consider Swiper a demon character, a valuable lesson is taught to children: "the redeeming quality of all life" !!!
Instead, it seems most of the commentators have skipped to the last paragraph, read just the sentence, "perhaps children might see that such "demonic" presences are not absolutely evil" and went into some sort of religious panic, or conversely decided to mock the above.
The article is just a (brilliant) literary analysis applied to a children's show most of us would not consider worthy of literary analysis, and is thus "funny" or clever. It is a tongue-in-cheek academic exercise.
The responses to this article however, are largely the product of drooling literalists with poor reading comprehension skills and a tenuous grasp of theology. In short, as I've presented in my previous comment, I weep for humanity.

rufus-t-firefly: this deceptive nature made the fox a logical form for the devil to take on earth. In fact, for medieval Europeans, the fox was a common symbol for the devil himself.

So, Fox News is both deceptive and demonic.

My 2y/o is banned from watching Dora. She's only allowed to watch Disney jr. Blues clues and yo gabba gabba.... The only inappropriate show on Disney jr is the one with "little nut brown hare". I just don't need her walking around repeating that.

Aww who am I kidding... That show is just annoying. I'd rather watch family guy. My kid sings the theme song.
 
2012-11-30 05:52:02 AM
Man, I remember when my oldest was in the age range, he never really watched Dora, he like Thomas the Train. Good God i can still remember all the names of the idiotic trains. Now thankfully he is 10, and we can just play football and not watch something mind numbingly stupid, though he keeps asking to be allowed to watch walking dead.

My 7yo went through a High 5 phase, and as hot as the blonde dancing chick on the show was, I was ok with that

Though he also always watched Max and Ruby. I continously pointed out to him if he was as much of a jerk to his older brother as MAx was to his sister, he'd have his ass kicked (by the older brother).

kazikian: This is a clever and somewhat tongue-in-cheek analysis that so many people have misunderstood it saddens me.


Well I can't speak for everyone, but I understood what the author was doing.

The problem is that he isn't working in a vacuum. He can explore these themes and ideas because people believe this shiat is real. That you can use magical incantations to ward off demons, etc.

It is mind-boggling that, in this day and age, that the belief in magic and superstition is still alive and well across all aspects of society.

Yeah, isn't Dora for, like, 2 or 3-year-olds, while Ponies and Phineas and Ferb are for an older audience (say, 6+)?


My 3 year old is bored by Dora, loves the others. Honestly, I think it's what you expose them to. If you sit them in front of mind-numbing stuff like Dora instead of shows with complicated language and complicated plots then they'll probably like that.

When I was a kid, me and my brother had to throw away all of our He-Man and Thundercat toys after our parents were made aware that said shows promote witchcraft. As a rule of thumb (for evangelicals), "witchcraft" was any sort of supernatural power that was explicitly stated as coming from our Lord God.

It was a mildly interesting article about the mythological archetypes that the human psyche has carried with it through the ages, and how that translates to young psychological development. Although the author may or may not be a Christian, fundie, crazy person or all three in combination, it really wasn't much of a religious tract, more of a comparative religious tract.

Dora is annoying because the way the actor voices her it's LIKE SHE'S SHOUTING ALL THE TIME.
