Recently, my son has been watching cartoons that seem to be for older kids on Nick Toons and Toon Disney. To me, these cartoons all look pretty stupid, and really aren't anything like the cartoons that I used to watch when I was a kid. But tonight, there was one that he really seemed to like that I just couldn't believe. I didn't really pay much attention to what it was about, but the name of it is Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go! Are they kidding? I don't know about anyone else, but I think seven words is a few too many for the title of a cartoon. And presumably, it's about some kind of robot monkeys. Robot monkeys? Why would anyone build robot mokeys? I'm beginning to think the way it works is that if you can come up with an idea for a cartoon, with so many cartoon networks, they will just put it on no matter what it is.

It's been done before. They probably have a line of toys they want to market and they make the cartoon to build interest among the kids. Remember Transformers?

Of course, I had a few Transformers. Also, some GoBots which I think came before, but weren't as well marketed.

I would build a Robot Monkey. I mean, Monkeys are the funniest animals. And robots are just cool. The combination seems natural enough. And you could take the Robot Monkey on BattleBots!
