    MMA in children's television

    As the days go by, I'm becoming more and more convinced that TV is trying to brainwash our children into becoming mindless brutes.

    It all started back in December, when I was watching the Drake and Josh Christmas Special. It seemed ordinary at first, until just before the end when Kimbo Slice burst onto the screen in a Santa outfit. I almost had a cataleptic seizure as I watched him punch his way through the chimney.

    I thought Nickelodeon's brief flirtation with MMA was just a fluke, but I was proven wrong on that account when iCarly devoted two entire episodes to the sport. The second episode was particularly weird, because the main character actually had to fight in an MMA bout. The comments section in the YouTube promo for the episode was spattered with creepy, sexual remarks in regards to the two underaged combatants:

    YouTube - iCARLY iFIGHT SHELBY MARX Victoria & Miranda FIGHTING!

    The final straw happened today when I was watching Antz on Cartoon Network. During the commercials, Bas Rutten suddenly popped up on the screen to tell kids to stay in shape by kicking and punching the air. I **** you not. He even had a bunch of kids with him, and they were all trying to see who could kick and punch the fastest.

    Agreed... creepy... but it's the trend, and companies prefer to cash in rather than think of consequences.

    If you're pissed enough about this (which I would be if I had a kid,) write to the producers en masse, as most one-man emails or letters will be ignored. I'm sure you can get at least 500 people from this forum alone.

    Oh, I'm not pissed. I think it's hilarious.

    Edit: Not the legitimate pedophilia. Just the fact that they would make an episode like that.

    Well MMA has hit the big time. I remember when every character did Judo, then Karate, Then Kung Fu, then ninjitsu, then Krav Maga had a short stint, now it is MMA.

    At least you have a competition system to keep it whole otherwise, with Gracie University and other programs, MMA would be heading for the shitter.

    This video starts in the middle of the fight, but it's all you need to see. Watch part 5 if you're terribly lost.

    It could be worse. I wonder how many kids have found this under their Christmas Tree.
