Cul de Sac (2/12/11)

As a childless American, I live blissfully on the periphery of kid culture. I remember the hand-drawn Disney films and syndicated Animaniacs episodes of my youth, but I have only a vague sense of what kids are into these days. As a probable parent, what I hope kids are into are smart animated films like Toy Story 3 and hip live-action programs like Yo Gabba Gabba! But what I suspect kids are into are nearly toxic levels of texting and countless, deafening hours of Radio Disney. There’s no accounting for the taste of toddlers (or kids in grade school), so maybe the best I’ll be able to do with mine is sit them in front of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood from time to time and hope some of it sinks in.
