This article was originally written for Mockingbird. Fatherhood has become my most cherished title. I love being a dad and watching my daughter grow and learn and play and become who she is. Fatherhood has also, though, baptized me in the waters of children’s television, which, if you’re unfamiliar, is a genre of entertainment rife with princesses, anthropomorphic animals, and, seemingly, no shortage of moral codas to clumsily tack on shallow plots. It is actually quite hilarious to dissect a random episode of any kids show on Netflix and see what sort of righteous lesson your offspring will be getting on any given afternoon.
