PBSKids Encourages Cruelty to Dolphins, Cows, Pigs, Sheep, Chickens, Fishes, Insects

by Teach Children Kindness Sunday, Feb. 01, 2015 at 11:53 AM

Tens of millions of children are being encouraged to harm animals by PBS.

 PBSKids Encourages ...
animal_abuse_battery_cage_01.jpg, image/jpeg, 570x427


PBS Kids shows are constantly advertising meat, milk, eggs, the culture of farm animal slavery, zoo slavery, horseback riding, the imprisonment of frogs in nets, the confinement of dolphins at Sea World and of fish in tiny cages. The National Science Foundation steals citizen tax dollars to do animal studies and is a promoter of animal vivisection, is a sponsor of SciGirls. Milk cartons are used in art (why not grape juice or almond milk cartons?)


The Public Broadcasting System's PBS Kids produces a children's show called Odd Squad, partly funded by the US Department of Education. One of the first splashes on the screen was a picture of a plate one of the actors had for dinner last night, prominently including animal flesh. With subliminal advertising, Odd Squad makes Saturday bologna day, pushing trash meat which contains red food coloring to hide its gray, correlated to children's leukemia and like meat consumption in general correlated to obesity, while Thursday is supposed to be cheese day (cheeses containing female hormones given to captive cows, hormones which create chidlren's early sexual development).

In one segment aired January 22nd, there were perhaps 20 references to eggs, including a song praising them, an egg mobile, and copious product placements for them perhaps from the American Egg Board. What Odd Squad did not cover was that each egg is 32 hours of confinement in a 3 ft by 1 ft cage with 8 other chickens, that eggs have an average 250 to 300 mg of artery clogging animal fat each, that each egg represents 120 gallons of production water, the pollution of streams with salmonella, several kinds of food poisoning.

In addition, the show encourages children to abuse others verbally and to boss others around through the person of a Miss O.


In this poster's memory, the only pinata she's ever seen made to resemble an animal was on the cartoon show Curious George. George is encouraged to smash a pinata looking like a bull. There have been several victories against bullfighting in Spain, but still in many Latino countries bulls are impaled by crowds shrieking for ears and tails. Teaching children to smash items resembling animals is a form of violence.

In a segment called "Howie The Hog", the producers of Curious George promote 4H Club contests. 4H encourages children to adopt, raise, and feed a slave animal, and then submit him or her for slaughter. Depression and mental illness can result in chldren who do not want to butcher their beloved pets. In addition, Curious George producers promote farm animal slavery in general. The goldfish bowls shown on the cartoon are of a very samll size illegal in Rome and defined as animal cruelty.

Animal slavery items such as eggs and milk are used to teach numbers and measurements.


The Kratt brothers came halfway.... featuring a fishing contest in which only catch and release were permitted. But why rip hooks out of a suffocating fish's throat or eyes or gills just for a human ego contest?

Frequently the Kratt Brothers drive over fragile grasslands in their SUV. This kills groundnesting birds, frogs, snakes, insects etc.


6 references to cheese in 1 morning, perhaps from a Wisconsin state dairy promotion agency. Chickens seeking freedom from their cages are caught and returned.


In a Jan 23rd airing, there were at least 6 references to carcinogenic, artery clogging, animal torturing red meat (meatballs and steak).


Years ago, Ralph Nader was one of those publicizing PBS' promotion of toxic animal and other junk foods on Sesame Street.


encourages the use of eggs in experiments. Fragile grasses with their resident insects, frogs and groundnesting birds are smashed by watercarrier sleds.

SCIGIRLS encourages removing horses' freedom and making them slave carriers of overweight Americans.

MR ROGERS' NEIGHBORHOOD Before his death, the universally revered and loved Fred Rogers kept his show from being a running commercial for animal slaughter products.


PBS has quilting, cooking and other shows, but where are the shows on how to arrange a peace vigil and bring press, how to organize a boycott, how to build a coalition? Where are PBS shows on how citizens can take back our power?

WGBH, Boston affiliate, has for years promoted war with its 4pm news show.

Russophobic disinformation from Frontline

DEFORESTATION: PBS hosts at least 3 shows, Woodworking, This Old House, and Hometime (produced by WHYY Philadelphia) which involve mainly wood, not brick or block stone or stucco. Building with dead trees is a greater fire hazard, requires more insulation, attracts termites and mold, has a shorter life span.


Chuck E Cheese is just one animal product sponsor of PBS Kids. The Wisconsin dairy industry is also the Wisconsin generator of calves separated from their mothers, of the brutal veal industry.

Stride Rite marketing shoes made of cows' skin (Molly on Mike and Molly: "Take the leather back to the cow and apologize".)

abcmouse is a website frequently advertised on PBS Kids, one which promotes the captivity of animals in zoos and the slavery and slaughter of farm animals.


WVIZ, PBS' Cleveland affiliate, is promtoing the state prohunting agency which makes tv shows teaching children to drown, kill and skin trapped animals.

WVIZ toxic cooking shows such as Wild Gourmet which features the preparation of cadaver pieces resulting from hunting and fishing To object, call 1 800 WILDLIFE

WHYY deforesting and barbecue of animal flesh promoted in show Hometime
