Maybe you don't get them over there cause you have a wide culture of your own cartoons and comix.We don't,we have our comix but no cartoons so we import japanese ones mostly,BUT....nowdays the ones our children watch are stupid ones,not like lum and those I used to watch,they were all great!!!
True. Most of the time, I just watch the japanese ones mostly because they have a better story line to follow, and not the american stuff because most of the stuff on there isn't original enough in my opinion.
Yes that's it,the story line,somenthing to follow day after day,episode after episode. And some where instructive too,I learned about french revolutions and miths and legends we where studing at school,they actually helped me in school.Now what children are learning through cartoons is wich kind of power a certain pokemon has
