Olivia has my vote.
As previously stated, much as we wanted to keep the kid from watching too much TV, there have been several times when the cartoons come on. Not forever, not all day, but in little doses here and there. I’m sad to admit that The Knob (the parents?) gets spoiled with a little more television than average when he’s under the weather, which has been often lately. Combine this with a new dog who’s in the process of getting house trained, and The Daddy makes due the best he can.
So in the never-ending quest for TV shows that don’t suck, we’ve gravitated towards Olivia. I don’t know if it’s the soundtrack, the down to earth kids and parents, the realistic sassiness of Olivia or the just plain easy going nature of the show, but both the parents and the kid have become a fan. While we do try to limit how much the television is on, when we hear that old familiar brass section jingle, we all feel a little better.
