Cartoon encouraging children to commit crime
This is a cartoon with knockabout characters that is exceedingly badly thought out. With "lovable characters" and lame jokes, it would appear to be attractive to children. Indeed, the quality of the computer-generated graphics is quite passable. I find it exceptionally disturbing that a programme for children should encourage them to commit criminal acts. In the episode (aired 23rd September 2011 on CBC) that I have just seen they race to try to obtain a photograph back from a mail truck after it has been posted. This is a serious crime carrying up to 8 years in prison. This seems strange for a Canadian production, but nonetheless, it is a series that should, frankly, be kept from your child and be strongly rated.
