I don’t believe “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” had any advertisers.
Watterson’s satire gets funnier as time goes on.
Maybe they will send you a free ticket to watch their show if you bitch loud enough.
Hobbs is too logical for today’s political situation.
I don’t think you’ll be able to eat again, Calvin.
Go ahead and see just how much they care.
The right word is “objectionable.” (But it’s a big word for Calvin, of course…)
It doesn’t do any good if they don’t know you’re not watching.
So is this where everybody got the whole “boycott companies” idea?
He’s the first SJW
If more people did this, we might actually have decent TV.
Of course out of the 299 channels I get, over 200 of them are infomercials anyway (mostly for the Shark vacuum) – and I get to pay for the privilege.
TV commercials take up too much program time.
The more things change….
It’s interesting how many people, who answer similarly to Hobbes, don’t seem to be able to do that themselves when it’s something they don’t like.
There you go. Make your voice heard, or at least your words read. If the powers that be don’t know you are unhappy they will just keep doing what they are doing. If that doesn’t work, simply turn the channel.
Have to agree with Cal on this one. Who wants the clean stuff? Just tell me where I should sign… :D
ifIhad akid like YOUId be theone sick!!!
Hold on there, Calvin – Mom and Dad might like “The Waltons”…
Since this strip is copyrighted 1989, if he’s survived into adulthood, Calvin must be overjoyed with current TV offerings.
I feel like this situation is totally reversed in the youtube age, with advertisers pulling their support away from the company because they object to the stuff the users make.
Calvin and Watterson, usually so articulate. I believe the conventional usage is “objectionable,” not “objectional.” Still, funny as ever.
“Boycott”? Sounds sexist. Why no “girlcott”?
Clean, wholesome television? Not since cable.
It is one thing to quit watching a program that one finds objectionable. If enough people quit watching a program they might just cancel the program. However, by writing the sponsors, one’s views can be presented in a way that future programs will not have the objectionable portions. However, this does not work when the producers of the program don’t care about viewer input as much as their wanting to reshape society by using the media to desensitise us to things that we consider morally wrong.
Hmm… I don’t recall ever seeing Hobbes’ head from the back before.
We fixed the clean, wholesome thing.
Hobbs, quit making sense!
Hobbes makes a very good point.
