So, this is Cartoon & Comics week in my class, (it's good to be in charge), and at the end of every day, I ask my kids trivia questions in exchange for gumballs out of my Flintstone's gumball bank. (remember those?) Anyway, I know that there are a LOT of cartoons on TV replacing our old faves, but a lot of them are still on Boomerang and OnDemand and satellite. My kids don't know:
most Looney Tunes characters
the true identities of Batman, Robin, Superman, Spidey and the Hulk
The Scooby Doo Theme song (although they're trying, that's worth 5 gumballs)
Most of them also don't read comic books. Now when I was a kid, I didn't know anyone who didn't read comics, even if it was Archies or the Sunday funnies or something! This 10 year old doesn't know how to say Marvel (Mar-velle) 'cos he never heard of them!
What I wanna know is this. You guys who have kids, do you share your old school passions w/ your kids? Do you watch cartoons, & read comics to them (complete w/ sound effects!)?
What's your take?
