Growing up, I was one of those "allowed to watch The Simpsons " kind of kids. I couldn't wrap my brain around why other kids my age weren't allowed to watch it. I guess Bart was a troublemaker, but he always learned his lesson in the end! The ban on The Simpsons was mystifying enough, but then there were those houses that also didn't allow Nickelodeon. That was just preposterous to my Doug- and- Hey-Arnold -loving self.
