The shows kids watch on TV are highly influential to the development of their personal social outlook on the world. However, this is not necessarily bad. There has been a recent trend in children's animated television producing progressive content that challenges as well as entertains kids.


Below is information on the three shows examined during the 2017 summer season of The Second Classroom. In addition to being forward thinking all three of the shows are majorly popular with their child audience.      

The Weird World of Gravity Falls

Full of quick wit and secret codes, this two-time Emmy award winning show is severing up mysteries and progressive content that kids love.
