So E has taken over bedtime duties for Adler the past few weeks and was complaining that he didn't know any of the songs I sang him before bed. So he decided he needed to come up with some of his own. After some research on the internet, E came to me with the lyrics printed out of the songs he was going to start singing him. They included the following:
theme songs for:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (original)
Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers
Scooby Doo (original)
These were cartoons that I believe came out when we were like 14, but are some of his "childhood" favorites. He just doesn't get why any 14 year old would rather watch "Saved By the Bell" and "Hang Time" rather than a cartoon based on tiny jumping gummi bears. And truthfully, I still catch him watching them on the Cartoon Network sometimes. He is excited for the time when Ad gets old enough to watch them with him; but I fear major disappointment ahead for him because I just don't think kids are watching Tale Spin anymore.
