Because, you know, it’s almost like this…

Pay attention to the newsreel that starts at the one minute mark in this video:

Phineas and Ferb is the best kids show you may not be watching. I love the message that runs through the show. Get your kids away from electronic media and have them just be kids, preferably outside, for a few hours each day.

I’m betting that would do more to combat childhood obesity than the First Lady could ever hope to achieve. Not that making them eat healthy is a bad thing either but movement, movement is key. And no, Wii doesn’t count.

I love the message behind Phineas and Ferb. It’s a bonus that it happens to be a kids program that adults will enjoy because it’s well made, and not because they’ve tossed in a string of bad puns or adult references that kids won’t get.

Kick the kids out into the back yard ever day, let them be kids, even if it doesn’t seem completely safe. It’ll do them good.
