Max & Ruby

Sunday, May 24th, 2009

I have been watching the channel Noggin with my son and saw this cartoon called Max & Ruby.  It seems like a fine Kids cartoon at first.  But after I saw a few more episodes, I started thinking the cartoon is rather messed up.  Max & Ruby is more like a single mom family than brother and sister as what the show suggests.  I think it’s even worse for Ruby being a big sister because there are no adults in the family.  Is the show suggesting that they are orphans and kids are living by themselves now?  Also, Max is drawn a little big for a baby (compare to Ruby’s size).  I would think Max is a retarded boy if I didn’t know he’s just a baby.  I think this show is probably suitable for baby who don’t understand words yet.  For older kids, it’s a little inappropriate.  What do you think?

Denny’s Free Grand Slam on Tuesday 2/3

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

I just saw a Denny’s commercial on Super Bowl for a free Grand Slam breakfast on Tuesday 2/3 between 6am and 2pm. I bet the line to Denny’s will be insane and nearby traffics will be crazy as well on Tuesday. Their website is slammed right now.
