Is there a particular reason that ycdtotv and many other shows for kids that followed in its footsteps, relied so heavily on messy humiliation, like laughing at people getting slimed and pied against their will?
Is this just a reflection of producers believing kids have a lower comedy sense of humor and, since you can't actually drop anvils on people, you may as well get them messy?
Or because they believe kids are naturally cruel and love seeing others in unfortunate slapstick situations?
Maybe it is just a continuation of the three stooges style of pie in the face comedy ,but ycdtotv seemed to take the slapstick to an almost sadistic level!
-not that it wasn't entertaining. especially for kids.
