What are we learning?

This post is about negative side of cartoons. In this post I would like to mention some cartoons that are giving false information of the living world.

I think in cartoon fiction is ok, but we have to make sure that our kids can easily understand what is the fiction and what is the truth. We have to be careful that we are not mixing the fiction with reality.

Yes. It is true that some of our kids are so serious about cartoons that they like to believe what the cartoons show, but what will happen to those who are enjoying cartoons, but not affectionate about that?

Some cartoons, like ‘POKEMON‘ and ‘DIGIMON‘ are the

examples of those cartoons which are giving our kids wrong information. In these cartoons we can see many creatures which are not real. However, they set up as they are real and their body shape is like shape of original animals. The problem is there are lots of surprising plants and animals in this world, about which we are unaware. So, after watching those creators, small kids can easily believe that those are real. They will be puzzled easily.

Instead of those characters can’t we use the original animals to introduce our kids about the living creators? It is my another silly thought. One day while I was watching television with my small cousin, I noticed that he knows all the names of the characters of the cartoons which are very weird. It surprised me because he can’t memorize properly any English name of animals, but he can memorize what the cartoon is showing him. I am sure that if we introduce the original plants and animals through cartoons like Pokemon or Digimon, they will enjoy and learn quickly.
