Here's a break from our regularly scheduled nostalgia to show off my efforts to share a few specials with my six-year-old stepson. TV is totally different for kids of his generation; TIVO is a fact of life, the idea of time slots seems unusual (I don't think he ever watches anything when it's first broadcast), and none of his favorite shows only come on once a week on Saturday mornings. I have a hard time sitting through most of the new programs he watches - but they're made for him, not for me. And he loves The Smurfs, The Muppet Show, Muppet Babies and Tom and Jerry. He did not, however, realize there was such thing is a Halloween Grinch cartoon - until now:
He loved it, btw.
Couldn't get him to watch Witch's Night Out yet , though (given a choice, he went with a Scooby Doo episode about a witch instead).
