Why Children's Cartoons Should Be Taken Seriously
Danny Phantom: A 14-year-old boy with an already sucky life gets half-killed by his parents' stupidity, and has to try to keep up with his own life.
American Dragon: A 13-year-old boy discovers that he is actually a beast hated by most and has to deal with the same shit as Danny Phantom, only double as much because his awful teacher knows.
Fairly OddParents: A depressed 10-year-old is given a pair of magic fairies to help relieve him of all different forms of child abuse.
The Last Airbender: A 12-year-old boy is given the responsibility of saving the entire world by mastering a decade's worth of mystic skills in under a year.
