Who's a Pedophile?

This is to all the parents with young children.

Who on children's TV shows would you call the cops on if you saw him at the playground?

I am going to go with Steve from Stevesongs. He not only seems like a pedophile but strikes me as an ANGRY pedophile.

I was watching some old Mickey Mouse Club clips... I kind of wondered if people these days just hold back in there enthusiasm to be with children, and are too ridged; or if these Mouseketeers were perverts. I would hear people, (jokingly), say stuff about Mr. Rogers... I truly think it's sad that there's so many perverts out there, that it makes people more weary of primarily men, but women too, who just love children.

I don't think there really are so many perverts out there. We just think there are more because the media celebrates the ones that exist. But then maybe I'm wrong maybe there are a ton.

Don't worry, bleu ewe. I'm read to pepper anybody who does with buckshot. Also anybody who says Mr. Rogers.

I really don't know. Hope you're right. I do think there are a LOT of pervs out there though.

One of the "To Catch a Predator", they had one of the "predators" come in with his cloths off... just for the cameras. That's sending a completely mixed message.

Well, of course there are lots of pervs. There aer 300 million people in the United States. But a better question is how common are pervs; what is the density of pervs.

That is, of course, part of the problem. A 19-year-old who has an sex with a 16-year-old is hardly a pedophile but may easily be in the sex offender registry.

I agree, I was even going to bring that up in one post, but didn't want to derail the thread with a long post that had little to do with the OP.

Every last one of the cereal mascots. They all hang around kids proferring sweets. Many of them are known to be liars or have mental illnesses. I particularly don't trust that goddamned Cap'n Crunch. When I was a kid in the 60's and early 70's the molesting SOB regularly put to sea in a ship crewed by nothing but kids. Was there a Mrs. Crunch? No. The only other adult around was the equally skeevy Jean LaFoot...a goddamned pirate! We all know about pirates and their sodomy, too.

HEY!!!! I grew up with the original Mouseketeers. Don't be talkin' no smack.

It is sort of sad, though, that people see an adult (particularly an adult male) with kids and immediately think "pervert." According to the Mouseketeers themselves (even the ones who wound up bitter) Jimmy Dodd (the adult leader) was completely sincere abput wanting to be a good role model and helping kids grow up right, and Roy was a good-natured old guy who kept them entertained with hokey stories and balloon tricks.

That said, I wouldn't let my kids spend the day in Pee Wee's Playhouse. Not because I think Pee Wee (the character) would try anything weird, but because he would be busy talking to the furniture while a fire broke out.

Cornelius C. Sugarcoat was another kiddie-diddling cereal shill. His name even sounds like a euphemism for anal sex.

...and the Freakies? Well, I think we'd better not even start down that road; this is supposed to be a decent work-safe board.

Heh, Steve. That guy sucks, and they always sandwich him in right before Sesame Street. I don't want my kids seeing that. He's like the result of someone subtracting all the verve, originality, and edge away from Shel Silverstein.

The Imagination Movers - all of them; especially the ponytail girl.

And Johnny from Johnny and the Sprites - I actually turn this one off, I cna't watch him.

Anthony Wiggle, yes, Wags, Def, Henry the Octopus, absolutely (scarier than Jaws!) but Jeff and Murray are OK I think.

And Mr. GreenJeans. There, I said it!

Hang around the internet for a while, and you will start feeling like part of a minority.

That's possible. Have you perchance seen either Yo Gabba Gabba or The Doodlebops? Oh man those shows creep me out, but NONE more than the Doodlebops!

Henry the Octopus has the worst taste in clothes, that suit is like mindrape, he doesn't even need intent in that case! You may have a point about Anthony, I'm not sure I'd leave Jeff out but Murray is probably ok. But as I said, not Greg!

Perhaps only Canadians over 40 will remember Uncle Bobby but I wasn't long out of childhood when I thought that with the long grey hair combed back and the schlumpy sweater (not to mention the sidekick called Bimbo the Birthday Clown!) he gave off a pretty significant perv vibe to me.

Barney is the very definition of Perv Central.

The kids on that show look like they've been traumatized into a perpetual Perky STATE by a big purple wang.



Wiggles are not pervy.

Steve from Blue's Clues is totally pervy.

I find it very strange that a lot of you are picking people who never interact with children on their shows. How the heck can you tell if someone is a pedophile if you never actually see them around children?

Why does Sportacus live on a giant blimp hovering over a city in which only seven people seem to live, five of those being children? He claims to be making them healthier. I say otherwise.

Not a kids host, but with his pencil-thin mustache, John Waters SO looks like one.

A friend of mine swore that Robert Trebor (Salmonius the merchant on Xena & Hercules) just HAD to be. So much so that when he disappeared from the shows, I did a search to make sure he wasn't in jail.

Phew, I thought this thread would be about some new reality show. Perhaps some MTV-dating stuff, like the one where the girl has to chose who's her date between a gay guy, a straight guy in a relationship, and an available straight guy. "I'm sorry, but I'm actually only into little boys, really."

On topic, though, at least rumour has it that this guy (YouTube link) used to be some (kids?) TV personality.

I have to defend Capt. Feathersword, because in a DVD we have, he corpses on stage during one of their bits because of a sound effect that sounds REMARKABLY like someone peeing.

I crack up everytime I see that bit.

I play this game in real life. Whenever I walk down the street, I mentally label each person I see in one of several deviant/dangerous categories.

He's a child molester ... she's a serial killer ... that guy, definitely an international spy ... that one over there just buried his wife under his floor boards ... and that one has to be a assassin if I've ever seen one.

But for my money, per the OP, I gotta go with Mr. Rogers too. I mean, he spends all that time capping VC in the Nam ... it has to fuck you up.
