November 22: REMEMBER the good old days when no one thought anything about a bear not wearing pants or a little boy saying he had "gay old time in the woods"?

Apparently children's characters have gotten so much worse.

A quick survey of readers via Facebook revealed that people think today's children's characters are even more questionable than those of the 1980s.

Chris Fletcher says Yo Gabba Gabba is just plain ridiculous.

Dylan Thiedeke says it's an insult to children's intelligence.

A few people said In the Night Garden is freaky with Upsy Daisy, Ninky Nok and Igglepiggle being named specifically.

"I truly think they were on something when they made those shows," Caitlyn Curtis said.

  • Felix the Cat
  • Teletubbies
