The Channel 4 list of 100 Greatest Kids' TV Shows, as listed on their website which was different than the one broadcast.

A couple of additional discrepancies:

1. Number 67 is actually meant to be the film The Snowman. The other show is just there for a placemarker.
2. Number 13 is meant to just be a general reference to Wallace and Gromit, not the precise item used.
3. 95 was listed as "Children's Film Foundation", this has no listing on IMDB, so I put Bod in its place as it was on the broadcast list.
4. 96 is meant to be The Singing Ringing Tree, but this is listed as a film so I've skipped it out completely, hence the list being only 99 items long.

When did The Simpsons become a show for children?
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Jul 1 3:17

Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Jul 1 4:15

You only putted one of my favorite shows on here. Where's the others?
Posted: 3 years, 10 months ago at Nov 26 10:46
thenoah, in response to your comment, I think the reason why the Simpsons would be on this list is because a lot of children including myself (of course I ain't one anymore) have watched the Simpsons.
Programmes i.e. Family Guy, American Dad and Beavis & Butthead ain't suitable for kids. The Simpsons is the safest, considering that any language/violence/whatever is much milder compared to the others, and it's only a little bit of it. Plus some of the episodes had storylines dominated by the child characters.
That's kind of the theory why the Simpsons is on the list and not the other cartoons you mentioned.
