No Moose No Peace

About a month ago, we gave up our cable. (I KNOW). It was getting way too expensive and we ended up watching the same few shows that, as it turns out, are pretty much available on Netflix streaming or online, so we thought we'd pocket an extra Ben Franklin a month and just...get rid of it for a while.  To be honest, I haven't missed it.  We'd been long in the clutches of a Thomas the Tank Engine Death Grip and Hopper is still pretty much able to watch his daily 27 viewings of that g#%#% m  episode where the Super Special Bubble Liquid Gets Sploshed and Sir Topham Hatt gets all pissed off because someone isn't being "REALLY USEFUL" (note: you know what else isn't "really useful??":  TOP HATS).
Anyway, so because we haven't had cable, I had no idea that Nick Jr. up and screwed the pooch. Here's a nice explanation here. Scheduling changes, *even MORE* Dora and the truly unforgiveable: gettting rid of Moose and Zee. All in the name of making their network "more educational". Um yeah: whatever. I'm remembering that episode of Dora the Explorer that features an iguana that has to "hold it" for an entire episode and then shit seeds all over Abuelo's garden in rows of ten so the strawberry plants can grow at an accelerated rate (like 10 seconds from seed planting to fruit), so The Strawberry Festival can GO ON. That show is so mindbogglingly psychotic, it exhausts me. 

While I won't be raging on Nick Jr.'s facebook page or staging a protest, I still think it stinks. We really liked you, Moose A. Moose. You were the Youiest.
