Dobranocka, the nighty-nighty cartoon show for kiddies that has been around as long as Polish TV has been axed by TV boss Jukliusz Braun. The 7 PM show ended at 7,30 when the main evening news bulletin went on and kids were supposed to be sent off to bed. Braun argues that kids account for only 10% of the viewership. Which cartoons do you know and liked the best:

Bolek i Lolek,
Piaskowy Dziadek
Pomysłowy Dobromir
Pszczółka Maja
Pies Reksio
Jacek i Agata (the first Dobranocka -- a puppet show)

From the program 1 of the Polish Television disappearing "Dobranocki" but the decision of the President of TVP is criticized by adults. We asked children from kindergarten if they watching "Dobranocki". Replies: "No, because parents need to watch some strange news", "I must first ask the parents", "They rather say to me that we with the brother need to went out of the room at this time."

Also 'Pora na Telesfora'. The host was actor Pan Zygmunt Kęstowicz, and Telsfor was a puppet dragon. Years ago he caused a scandal. When the programme was ending he started bidding the kochane dzieci farewell, good night, sleep tight, bla, bla, and then, when he thought the mike had been switched off, he added: A teraz kochane dzieci możecie mnie w d*pę pocałować. Gomułka was furious!

A similar incident once occurred in America. When the show was over the host said under his breath (again thinkign he was not on air anymore): That should hold the little bastards for tonight!

Anyone know of any other such bloopers?

Know any? As a kid I once got as a gift a set of records titled 'Pardon my Blooper'. I still remembers a few:
A drunken-sounding British radio presenter: And now we take you to the bathroom at Pump... er, um, I mean the pumproom at Bath.
Another was a census-taker who was told the family comprised: three children, one adult and one adultress.

How anyone can tolerate more than a hour of cartoon network, I really don't know. A cacophony grunts, groans and appalling language and afterwards the kids want to go outside and beat each other round the head with plastic swords or anything else that comes to hand.

If I had the final say, I would ban it and encourage the children to watch programmes that teach them how to make things so they don't become over educated and incapable of doing anything. I don't so I seethe quietly to myself and wait for the next shopping trip, when they spot something Ben 10 and profess their absolute need for such an item. When asked what said item is and does, it's often followed with "er er er er but it's really good". Damned good marketing is what it is.

I miss Valerie John and Peter; not forgetting Shep.

Anyone that watched Blue Peter was prob some geek that was into the scouts or YMCA. Not one of the kool kidz anyways :P

I'd rather my kids used their imagination and watched cartoons like Samuri Jack or Batman that muck like BP.

in ur opinion should they later and watch war/ horror movies

Certainly not the shaggin news anyway.
Why are they even watchin tv, they should be playing at that age :P

That's entertaining. Where does there imagination come into that one then? It's all the markettng departments and the stories being told to them by someone else. Keeps them quiet for a while and you don't need to put any effort in do you.

My kids had DVDs, played MMOs very little Disney channel or CTN exposure until they were older.
They were mostly out with me at the beach(tho I personally hate it), sailing on the little mini-sloop I used to have, on the bike trails, camping or snowboarding. Plus both were in ballet and TKD.

They actually were not interested in their age appropriate programs, they thought them boring or dumb and I wouldn't allow them a lot of anime til they were 8 (since both learned Japanese just to watch them, I caved)

So now that they have done this, what do kids have to watch as children's programs now?

It is utter crap. Personally, I like the simplicity of the dobranocka cartoons. They actually have collectors figurines of all those characters. We have Bolek i Lolek.

I have two girls and they watch pre teen disney shows, they are done with cartoons unless it is Phineus and Ferb. But they don't watch violent or aggressive style cartoons......I think that is more for boys really.

Many other things. It's just a programme that was a bit of an institution - but there is still plenty of children's programming available.

Lippy and Messy was very, very, very well done as well.

Polish kids can now watch a bunch of foreign crap. Yet another of Poland's iconic institutions has bitten the dust. Long live globalism! (Not!)

On condition you have cable or satellite. I suppose millions of households still haven`t. Depriving those kids of evening programme is unfair.

In DVB-T you have eg. Puls 2. And there will be one more channel for children.
