Catch the bus before you miss it! Then, eye-down the clock until recess. Thirty minutes go by quickly and just like that, you are already back to sitting on your classroom's Magic School Bus themed carpet, waiting patiently for the bell. Okay, school is finally over. Although you either have baseball practice or cub scouts, you don't really look to the near-future optimistically. Sure, throwing a ball or learning how to start a fire from one of the gawky and musty older scouts is more entertaining than listening to your teacher.
That being said, nothing compares to flashbacks of only having a single hour of cable before mom would send you to bed, and then send you back to bed after she caught you starting the next episode of your favorite cartoon. Cartoons have the ability to catch a kids attention, which is not something that happens frequently. Although there is a stigma that cartoons and television in general is a waste of time, this is not true. Although most cartoons don't teach children information you can learn in a classroom, like the science practiced on the famous television series, Bill Nye the Science Guy, they do provide a learning purpose. This learning can range from teaching kids to be adventurous, creative, or simply to have fun with friends.

Cartoons hold the power to introduce us to a new type of creativity we are unable to redeem anywhere else. With that being said, there are also other intentions the creators of these shows have in mind. Although some show's purpose are exclusively entertainment, it is still a mile ahead of being a cub scout, trust me.
