Make my wife feel better.
Our precocious daughter recognizes the most minor of characters on Nickelodeon's SpongeBob cartoon (we have five DVDs).
This morning, she identified the Flying Dutchman, and recognizes Mermaidman and Barnacleboy by just hearing the theme music for the episode.
She also recognizes most of the characters from Sesame Street and Dora the Explorer, too.
But not the Teletubbies. I won't let her watch, as I'm convinced it's run by a cult, and one day they'll send the master signal for the uprising to the subliminally programmed zomboids. Easily the most unnervingly weird thing I've ever seen, and that includes David Lynch films.
Anyway, Heather would like to be reassured that there are worse things from popular culture she could recognize. Please use comments for examples.
