It won’t be wrong to say that the 90s babies had the best cartoons, best TV shows and the best activities to do as kids. From shows like Captain Planet, moving on to Ainak Wala Jinn, then growing up to watch Beyblade and Pokemon, we can say that we had our fair share of entertainment. But what are our kids watching these days? Doremon? And they probably don’t even eat dirt like a real kid as they are always on their phones and tabs. But a local cable channel in Karachi really aired something very obscene and PEMRA might wanna have a look.
Well, well. What do we have here?
This is a kids channel on a local cable and this really needs to be looked into. Apparently, the cable channel aired an R Rated animated movie which definitely wasn’t for kids. The video clearly shows bareness in a cartoon character which is highly inappropriate for kids. Whereas this might be entirely due to negligence and the operator might not even know what they’re playing. But it happened.

It was an R Rated animated movie.
The movie is called “The Haunted World of El Superbeasto” but it definitely isn’t for a kids’ channel. But who is to be blamed for this? Definitely the cable operator. Bacho, baray ho k dekh lena koi masla nahi hai.
Its a @RobZombie movie what do u expect. ? but this is clearly negligence on part of local cable providers. As its a rate R movie. Simply not for kids.

Say it louder for the people at the back!
Contrary to the popular belief, just because a movie is animated, it really doesn’t mean it is for kids! NOT EVERY animated movie is appropriate for kids and no we are not even going to Japan here. People assume that if a movie is animated it for sure has to be for kids. Which is definitely a wrong assumption. Haven’t you guys seen Up? Can a kid handle such emotional pressure!?
just because it is animated doesn't mean it's for kids
the cable guy running this should have seen the rating

Save your kids.
Well, we have cleared it out that this movie was definitely not meant for kids but keeping this on the side, the cartoons they watch right now are not really appropriate either. Take Doremon for example. Doremon shows Nobita being after a girl called Shizuka and a few episodes do have some kissing scenes too. Matlab bachon ko abhi se ashiq bana do.
Ok waise genuinely who else has noticed how kids shows have gotten highly inappropriate in the past few years
This isn't healthy https://t.co/J1fI0dhY8H

Parents need to control what their kids are watching and they definitely need to stop giving them phones and tablets and laptops all the time to watch stuff on YouTube all day.
