AFA Criticises Toys"R"Us For Advertising On Nickelodeon During "The Loud House"

A few things before I begin the post:

- Much of this post is borrowed from The Slowly Boiled Frog.com, which has hit the nail on the head perfectly.

- These words are the opinion of the webmaster of NickALive!, a 100% unofficial Nickelodeon fan blog. If you're upset with this post, please be upset with me, and not Nickelodeon.

The very dim bulbs at American Family Association, an anti-LGBT hate group, are extremely upset with Toys“R”Us. The toy retailer's offense is that they dared to advertise during a number-one Nickelodeon show that they don't like. According to Bill Bumpas on AFA's fake “news” blog: “Problematic content spotted in children's show … again.”


"A pro-family group is rebuking Toys"R"Us for advertising on an animated show that exposes children to LBGT content and crude language.

This is not the first time The Loud House, which airs weekdays on Nickelodeon at 5:00 pm Eastern/4:00 pm Central, has warranted a warning from One Million Moms, a ministry of the American Family Association. Monica Cole, director of the decency advocacy organization, says the network is using the show to promote controversial topics to children."

Could it be The Homosexual Agenda™?

Indeed it is:

“They're attempting to desensitize young viewers by normalizing same-gender marriage with one sister coming out as bi-sexual …


The McBride family

In reality, The Loud House and Nickelodeon are trying to portray life as it really exists. Whether or not AFA approves of gay people or their marriages those exist. They cannot be prayed away, they are not immoral, being gay is not contagious, and you're born gay - you cannot be turned gay. What this is all about are three fictional characters in The Loud House: Luna Loud, a main character in the series, who was revealed to be bi-sexual; and supporting characters Howard and Harold McBride, who have minor roles The married gay couple are raising Clyde McBride - best friend of lead character Lincoln Loud in the series - who is healthy and happy. The episode that introduced Howard and Harold was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award earlier this year.


Luna Loud

"Toys"R"Us being a sponsor, it is shocking that they would support a program and sponsor a program that is pushing an agenda on controversial topics," she contends.

One Million Moms is also contacting Connections Academy, an online free public school, about advertising during the show. And Cole goes on to point out that Nickelodeon should stick to entertaining with family-friendly programming instead of pushing an agenda and promoting foul language.

What is “controversial” and “problematic?” The fact that gay people exist; the fact that gay people can legally marry or both? How is this portrayal an “agenda” in contrast to entertainment? Or is it the fact that AFA does not approve of gay people that creates this “shocking” outrage.

The fact is, many kids have two moms or two dads, and they need to be represented positively on television so they know there's nothing wrong with that - and that there's nothing wrong with being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or cisgender. And Nickelodeon and other channels incorporating themes like this in shows should be applauded and encouraged to continue!

Sadly, the AFA wants to impose its arcane religious rules on everyone else.

Oh, and whats this about "crude language"?

In 2012 these same people were upset because Toys“R”Us was selling an Archie comic book with a gay character. Back then they were accusing the comic of indoctrination as if it would turn kids gay. This current complaint is equally moronic.

Remember this post the next time AFA complains about being designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Unfortunately, with groups like the AFA, the littler they are, the louder they tend to be. Sigh.

The best way to support Nickelodeon in continuing with its LGBTQ+ themes in shows is to keep watching The Loud House, pick up the new Legend of Korra comics, which continues Korra's same-sex relationship with Asami (#Korrasami), and keep shopping at Toys R Us.

Viacom Asia Scraps Plans To Develop New Nickelodeon Resort And Attraction In The Philippines

Philippines: Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Asia no longer wants to pursue the construction of its Nickelodeon-branded attraction and resort in Coron town.


In a press statement sent to Rappler on Tuesday 22nd August 2017, VIMN Asia said it decided to “mutually agree” with project developer Coral World Park (CWP) “to discontinue the IP licensing agreement” for the said Nickelodeon-branded tourism infrastructure which was planned to be built in the Western Philippine province of Coron, Palawan.

“Therefore, VIMN and Nickelodeon will no longer be involved with this proposed development,” said Adeline Ong, VIMN Asia’s Senior Director of Corporate Communications.

The statement comes a few weeks after Greenpeace urged VIMN to end its partnership with CWP which the environmental campaign group found to have “no historical background of any conservation effort anywhere else in the Philippines.”

“Drop this outrageous project as early as possible, or else face a possible reputational backlash,” warned Vince Cinches, Oceans Campaigner of Greenpeace Philippines, said in a press conference in Puerto Princesa on Thursday 27th July 2017.

Cinches said the CWP had yet to submit a master plan since the global media company announced in January 2017 its plan to build the “world’s first undersea attraction and Nickelodeon’s first resort in Southeast Asia."

Slated to open in 2020, the ambitious project aimed to develop a 400-hectare area, with 70 hectares set aside for the resort’s accommodation and 30 hectares for the themed attraction.

The 100-hectare Nickelodeon undersea attraction and resort would have been inspired by some of Nickelodeon’s most iconic properties like SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dora the Explorer.

The planned attraction drew criticism from environmental and civil society organizations, including the Tagbanua Tribes of Coron Island Association, Incorporated (TTCIA), which asserted Coron was not just a place of ecological importance boasting spectacular sceneries but also a place of cultural value that needs to be preserved.

“Chances are, we’ll not be able to do our traditional practices should we let them in,” said Armil Pe Abella, a member of Tagbanua tribe who acquired a certificate of ancestral domain title, which grants them authority over 24,264-hectare land and seascape around the municipality of Coron.

An online petition against the project had garnered over 263,000 signatures.

"Why do Coron and the Philippines need artificial attractions? Coron is already so beautiful in its natural state," said petitioner Anna Oposa, Save Philippine Seas executive director.

AA Yaptinchay, executive director of Marine Wildlife Watch of the Philippines, lauds VIMN for making such an announcement.

“This is a welcome development. We congratulate VIMN for discerning, not only which responsible companies they partner up with, but we hope with sincere concern on how these developments can negatively affect the natural environment,” he told Rappler.

Yaptinchay added the conservation community will remain watchful, in case the developer decides to push through with the project. “We are still cautious though that the planned development by Coral World Park is still active, possibly with a new, less responsible partner. We will be vigilant,” he added.

Cinches said VIMN’s abandonment of the project partnership with CWP is a warning to other investors who may consider engaging with the latter in the future.

“It’s not wise to partner with Coral World Park at this moment because Nickelodeon already abandoned that kind of partnership, so the [project] could not be revived anymore,” he told Rappler.

In a joint statement, conservation groups in the country urged the local government of Coron, the provincial government of Palawan, and Philippine environmental regulatory institutions to reject any potentially destructive project proposals anywhere in the province and the country.

I just like to draw and put ideas down. And every idea that Nickelodeon doesn’t buy I put on the Noog Network,” explains Hartman. He notes that Noog is a good place to try out new ideas and see how they go over in a short amount of time.

How Slime Came To Rule the World: The Making And Tasting Of Nickelodeon's Green Goo

The creators of one of the most popular phenomenons in kids' TV history open up about its edible past and present!


Kevin Mazur/Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Sports 2015

During the 1980s & '90s, there was no bigger star on cable television than slime. Green, gooey and oozy, the liquid was poured with impunity on the heads of kids and celebrities alike. Slime was sloppy, gross and totally bizarre.

It was also, for a majority of its existence, edible. While the recipe has gone through several iterations and variations, the slime that became a mainstay on the hit Nickelodeon game show Double Dare was made from ingredients often found in kids' lunch bags - vanilla pudding, green food coloring and apple sauce.

But slime's origins weren't this clean-cut. Food & Wine spoke with three of the main players behind its messy takeover of America's youth. Geoffrey Darby was the co-creator of the show You Can't Do That On Television and slime's founding father. Double Dare host Marc Summers has seen more heads covered in green goo than most other people. And Double Dare's art director, Byron Taylor was the one who designed the obstacle course and turned the making of slime into a food science.

Here now, in all of its green glob glory, is the story of slime.

In The Beginning, It Was Slop

On February 3rd, 1979, You Can't Do That On Television premiered on CJOH-TV in Ottawa. Co-created by Roger Price and Darby, the conceit was that the network had hired kids to take over the show's production in order to save money. The show was supposed to be from a child's point of view which gave them license to run amuck. Says Darby, "The show was based on anarchy."

Slime made its debut in the fourth episode of the first season. As Darby explains it, slime came from an organic place. They were planning to shoot a sketch at the end of the day with the joke being "whatever you do, kid, don't pull that chain." Of course, the kid pulls the chain and sewage gets dumped on him. At the beginning of the day, Darby instructed the production facilities' cafeteria to scrape all the leftover food from plates into a bucket and save it for the sketch. The plan was to add a little water and, bam, perfect sewage. Unfortunately, time ran out on shooting that particular sketch (due to child labor laws) and they pushed the shoot until next week.

A week later, as they were prepping to shoot the sketch, the prop person told Darby that they had a problem. No one had bothered getting a new bucket of leftovers. There's just the old one that's been sitting in the corner for the last week. And, in that time, eight inches of green "crud" has grown on top of it. Because they were a small production with a shoestring budget, Darby made an executive decision, "I just said, 'dump it on the kid anyway'."

And that's exactly what happened. The kid pulled the chain and down comes a frothy moldy mix of week-old cafeteria leftovers. Darby says he was pretty sure that the kid had no clue what hit him. "It reeked to high heaven. It was truly the grossest thing of all time," says Darby, "Oh my God, it was awful." But it was funny. Says Darby, "Roger and I looked at each other and said we got something here."

They Did Do It On Television

In 1981, Nickelodeon picked up the show and You Can't Do That On Television was broadcast into millions of American homes. While Price & Darby were confident slime would be the show's calling card, they knew they couldn't just dump buckets of moldy cafeteria leftovers on kids. It smelled, it was disgusting and frankly, it was dangerous. So, they started experimenting with non-toxic, inexpensive and mostly edible ingredients. Naturally, their first choice was a liquid-y version of green Jello. Says Darby, "It made a nice splat sound, but it wasn't slimy enough." Then, they moved to green-tinted Cream of Wheat for its consistency with a little bit of cooking oil to hold it all together. But the cream of wheat proved too hard to wash out of hair. "It wasn't really the hair on top of your head," explains Darby, "It was your body hair... your arms, legs, back. It was everywhere. It was truly dreadful." And for one day unfortunate day they even added dish detergent, but that stung cast members' eyes.

Finally, they settled on a much more reasonable solution - "no tears" baby shampoo. It was non-toxic, washed away the oatmeal chunks and didn't leave anyone screaming in pain. For the rest of the 10-season run of You Can't Do That On Television, slime was Cream of Wheat, green food coloring, cooking oil and "no tears" baby shampoo.

Gallons of Slime

Nickelodeon loved dumping slime on kids so much they made it a defining feature in their new kid-centric game show Double Dare, which premiered on October 6th, 1986. The premise was simple: get as disgusting as possible. "If you are an 11-year-old kid, all your parents are doing is telling you to stay clean and don't get messy," the host of Double Dare Marc Summers told Food & Wine, "and now we are giving prizes and money for rolling around and get messy... Yeah, (kids) loved it."

However, for practical and legal reasons, slime's formula had to change. For one, the game show needed a lot of it—gallons worth of the green ooze. The original recipe was just too complex and labor-intensive for the amount that the game show needed to make on a daily basis. Also, Cream of Wheat was a problem. "If the stuff flew around on the set and it couldn't be cleaned right away... it just dried in place," says Double Dare's art decorator Byron Taylor, "You would find globules of dried oatmeal....it would cook under the studio lights and bake onto the set."

In addition, legal restrictions were imposed. "The insurance company was all over us. We had to have them inspect every obstacle, every physical challenge," says Summers, "One of the requirements was that if the food got in the mouth of the kid, it had to be edible."

So, they improvised and settled on a concoction of vanilla pudding, green food coloring and apple sauce with, according to Taylor, a touch of non-dairy creamer. "We basically didn't know what we were doing," says Taylor, "Nobody had ever done anything like this before." But it met all the insurance requirements—it was edible, the ingredients were readily available and it was easy to whip up.

There's long been a myth—one Nickelodeon themselves perpetuated—that the pudding was "stale-dated" or past its "best by" date. Both Summers and Taylor say that's bunk. "It was such bullsh*t, I can't even begin to tell you," says Summers, "It was used to keep the American public off our backs so they wouldn't scream at us for wasting food... Everything we used was the industrial-sized cans. It wasn't expired at all. By the way, it would have contradicted everything that the insurance company wanted. If it was expired, kids wouldn't have been able to put in their mouths and eat it."

The Green Legend

Before long, slime was oozing its way into the hearts and minds of children across the world. Says Darby, "Every kid wanted to be slimed." And it wasn't just kids either. Many celebrities have taken their turn in the slimelight, including Richard Simmons, Halle Berry, Rosie O'Donnell, Will Smith and Steven Spielberg—who hated it. Laughs Summers, "(Spielberg said) it felt like his son threw up on him."

Darby admits that he refused to ever be slimed himself. "It was described to me by a child that it was like being behind a cow when it lifted its tail," says Darby, "After that description... no."

As the host of Double Dare for seven seasons, Summers probably had more slime dumped on him than any other person in recorded history. Needless to say, he doesn't give it a ringing endorsement either. "It could either fly down your face or slowly drip down if it was thicker," says Summers, "If it was thick, thin, cold or warm... bottom line, it didn't feel fantastic. If you were 11, it may be the greatest feeling in the world. But tell me one good reason a grown-up would want that." But he did say it tasted pretty good, "It's vanilla pudding with applesauce! How bad could it be?!" Certainly a whole lot better than week-old moldy cafeteria food.
