Tom and Jerry cartoons

The name itself is enough to laugh!!! Today I was searching for a topic to write. When my thoughts directed towards my lovely children the Tom and Jerry began their chase. More chase and less breaks. This may be the most popular cartoon in the world. My 2 year old is also a viewer of the Cartoon Network.
The cartoon started on 1940. But it is still young and captures the attention of the toddlers. I also like to see this cartoon, I think it is always moving not moving always jerry is running and tom is chasing. Children have a high energy level and they always want to move around. This may be one reason behind the success.
In my childhood I was very eager to see the Boban and Molly cartoons. That cartoons was also a success. But now the channel culture reduced the reading habits and the children spent almost all of the time in front of the TV. Hari likes Micky mouse, Donald Duck, Pokemon, Mr.Bean and Blazing teens.
The animation team behind this show Mr Joseph Barbera and William Hanna. William Hanna died in 2001 and Joseph in 2006.
Other cartoons produced by the Hanna-Barbera team are "The Flint stones", "Yogi Bear", "Huckleberry hound and friends", "Top cat", "Scooby Doo", "Johnny quest "and "Animal Follies". In POGO channel MAD is an interesting program.

I too like cartoons. Definitely, TV is dominating over books. I don't see any solution to this, except the idea that every child has some or the other potential which parents need to recognise and nurture. Taare Zameen Par must be a good movie, as it is on the same subject.
