    Well, I'd pretty much given up on them for political correctness and the fact that my kids are beyond that age, but as Michelle Malkin points out, they've abandoned any claim to decency and aren't a fit network for children to watch.

    You folks with small kids should pay attention.

    What are they supposed to do? Cancel a show over it that he merely voice acts on?

    Maybe they wont hire him for anything new.

    For one they can cancel his contract and make a public statement distancing themselves from him.

    What do you think Nick would do if one of their actors made similar public comments about Obama's wife?

    My kids watch very little TV. If they do it's usually the old (good) stuff they show on Boomerang. Flintstones, Huckleberry Hound, Pink Panther, old Tom and Jerry...

    No idea. Probably depends on who it was.

    Either way...if you're boycotting a network over what one guy voice acting on one cartoon said on his personal pages....then you may as well stop paying the cable bill accept for maybe to watch fox news and weather channel.

    :yawn:

    Solution: don't let your kids follow him on Twitter. Better yet, don't let them watch any Robin Williams movies either, have you seen his stand up routines? Tell them no more Mrs. Doubtfire, etc. Oh, and Eddie Murphy too, they shouldn't watch Dr. Doolittle either, because he's raunchy during his stand up as well. You better get to sheltering them.

    Biggs is doing a voice over big whoop. Get over it.

    And for the record, I'm far from being a liberal.

    What would GlockTalk do if someone mentioned "she who must not be named" in a thread, reply, or conversation here?

    Yep. I bet there's a TON of actors who have done parts for children's shows who have done other things that would appal the OP.

    Some people seem to spend too much time looking for a reason to get their panties in a wad.

    I don't care what some voice actor said, my kids haven't watched Nick ever. Their shows IMO are garbage all around. They leave the room or tell the person they are with they are not allowed to watch it.

    George Carlin was one of the dirtiest comics, but did narration for the Thomas the train TV show.

    Full House has been on Nick for a while. Bob Saget makes pedophilia jokes in his stand up routine.

    lol...how so?

    Victorious is awesome. So is Avatar.

    The only complaints i can see are with Teen nick. Shows like Degrassi arent really for younger kids...or some overly sensitive adults.

    But on normal nick...whats the issue there that makes it garbage? Bonus points if you can find something bad about the two shows i mentioned.

    Avatar is one of the better cartoons on any network.

    You can't get here from there!
    It's a lot less about Biggs filthy trash mouth and more about apparent corporate endorsement of same to include linking his vile twitter account to the Nick website and then failing to accept responsibility for sending children there.

    Sure there are a lot of comedians that are off color, but it's generally pretty easy to keep your kids away from it until they get a little older. Who cares what Bob Saget's comedy is about, few children are exposed to it. What may be acceptable in one venue is not acceptable in another.

    The tone of many of the posts here are proof that a lot of people are either completely desensitized to just about everything, or have no clue how to raise children into morally responsible adults, or both.

    If you wonder how Paris Hilton can be a celebrity, just look at how we raise our kids and some of the comments here.

    Regards,
    Happyguy :)
